What is ultrasonic cavitation treatment?
Ultrasonic cavitation, also called ultrasound cavitation or ultra cavitation, is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that uses ultrasound waves to destroy fat cells in targeted treatment areas—typically the upper arms, belly, love handles, thighs, or chin.
It’s often presented as a body contouring alternative to liposuction, but unlike lipo—which can produce optimum results with a single procedure—you’ll need multiple (as in, up to 12) ultrasonic cavitation treatments to see changes. You’ll also have to wait up to three months for your lymphatic system to flush the dead cells before your final results will be apparent.
Each ultrasonic cavitation session takes about an hour. Your provider will glide the cavitation machine’s handheld probe over the desired area, delivering low-frequency sound waves that “vibrate” the walls of the fat cells until they burst and turn into free fatty acids the body can expel. The treatment itself is painless (it’s even been called relaxing) and requires little to no downtime.
Ultrasonic cavitation risks and side effects are rare, but people who have pacemakers, diabetes, cardiac issues, or vascular disease are not candidates.
What are the pros and cons of ultrasonic cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is painless.
Recovery time is minimal to nonexistent, and side effects are rare.
It’s much less expensive than liposuction, even with a series of sessions.
It’s a real commitment. Most people need 10–12 weekly treatments, and you’ll have to wait up to three months after your last treatment while your body flushes the dead fat cells, to see your final results.
This and other nonsurgical fat reduction treatments are not weight-loss procedures. To be a good candidate, you’ll need to be already at your goal weight and looking only to remove a stubborn fat deposit.
How long does it take to see results from ultrasonic cavitation?
Typically, you can expect to see final results three months after your last session, but it depends on how effective your body’s lymphatic system is at flushing out the damaged cells. The excretion begins right away, and drinking plenty of water, eating well, and exercising regularly can all help to speed up the process.
RADIOFREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING
How Does Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Work?
RF skin tightening works by targeting the tissue beneath the outer layer of your skin, or epidermis, with radio frequency energy. This energy generates heat, resulting in new collagen production.
This procedure also triggers fibroplasia, the process in which the body forms new fibrous tissue and stimulates the production of collagen, causing collagen fibers to become shorter and more tense. At the same time, the molecules that make up collagen are left undamaged. Skin elasticity increases and loose, sagging skin is tightened.
What is the treatment like?
During treatment, an RF skin tightening machine will send alternating currents from the tip of an electrode to your tissue at a frequency between 0.3 and 10 MHz. This process bypasses the amount of melanin pigment present in your outer layer of skin, making the treatment effective for all skin types and colors.
