Ultrasonic Cavitation FAQ's:
Can I lose weight with Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasonic Cavitation is not a method of weight loss. It is designed to reshape and sculpt the body and remove localized stubborn fat or cellulite. Ultrasonic Cavitation treatments work best when combined with a low fat and low carbohydrate diet and regular exercise and these will help you to lose weight.
How many treatments can I have?
We recommend you have a course of 6 and a maximum of 12 treatments before having a break of 4 weeks to allow your body to recover. You should allow 72 hours between treatments.
How soon can I see a result of cavitation?
Most clients will have a noticeable reduction in their measurements after the very first treatment, some have recorded 5 inches, however the average is a 2 inch loss. The process of fat removal continues for up to 7 days after each treatment so it isn’t unusual to see a further decrease a day or two after your initial treatment.
Is the fat reduction permanent?
Yes, the fat cells are fractured, broken down and the cells are drained away through the liver and passed as waste from the body.
How long is a treatment?
The service is tailored to the individual but generally including consultation and measurement, you can expect to be with us between 45 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes.
How long should I wait after childbirth to have cavitation treatments?
You must wait a minimum of 3 months after normal birth of your baby or a minimum of 6 months after C section. It is best to get GP approval post childbirth prior to commencing Ultrasonic Cavitation.
Do I have to rest afterwards?
No, the great thing about this treatment is that you can go about your day as normal. We strongly advise you to increase your water intake to at least a half gallon a day to help with the fat removal.
What would happen if I had cavitation during my period?
Ultrasound increases blood flow and you would feel uncomfortable.
Is there an age limit?
Yes, it is our policy to not provide this service to anyone under the age of 18.
Can I have more than one area treated if I pay?
Following the treatment, the body has to work to remove the excess fat that is now passing through the lymphatic system to the liver. For this reason, treating multiple areas is not advisable and may not be effective. We follow the rule of no more than 30 minutes of Ultrasonic Cavitation every 72 hours. Those 30 minutes however, can be split between opposite sides of the body, i.e. 15 minutes on the left thigh and 15 minutes on the right thigh.
What if I don’t see results straight away?
It is important to remember that everyone is different and your body will work according to your unique metabolism. You will see reduction during a course of treatments which is why we recommend a course of 6 or more to get great results.
What can I do at home to help with treatments?
Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol after your service. Try and increase your heart rate by taking some exercise for the best results, even by doing some household chores, and avoid too many carbohydrates.
Will people know that I’ve had help to get my new figure?
It is completely up to you if you tell people that you have had Ultrasonic Cavitation, however the treatment is non-invasive so there are no scars and you won’t have to take time off work to recover. We are fully committed to ensure your privacy is maintained at all times.
Avoid Aspirin/ibuprofen or any vitamins that my thin the blood 72hr before treatment
Detox 24hr Prior to treatment (for lasting results, detox twice a week)
Avoid eating 2 hrs. prior and 2 hrs. after treatment (4 Hours of no eating)
Must eat after 4 hrs. or body will go into starvation mode and reject treatment.
Drink plenty of water to facilitate the lymphatic system (2-3 bottles before & after treatment. Growing water intake up to a gallon per day.)
Limit Carbonated drinks, coffees, and any teas that are not for the purpose of detoxing
Refrain from all breads, rice, pastas, sodas, cookies, candies and any other unhealthy foods during the duration of receiving treatments.
Drink at least 1 liter of water immediately following the appointment and throughout the week. This flushes out the toxins. Do a minimum of 20 minutes of elevated heart rate cardio exercise. This is best to be done immediately after the treatment, and for three days following. This is to ensure the stored energy released by the cavitation process is burnt off. If cardio is not your style, infrared sauna sessions may assist, as it has a similar effect on the body.
Overall maintaining a low calorie, low carbohydrate, low fat, and low sugar diet for 24 hours pre-treatment and three days post-treatment will help achieve the best results. This is to ensure your body utilizes triglycerides (a type of body fat) released by the cavitation process. We also encourage clients to stick to this diet as much as they can. Many find this to be a great starting point for maintaining a healthier lifestyle in the future.
Additional steps can be taken to achieve optimum results such as topically stimulating the treatment area following your session or using a body brush in the shower to promote movement around the area. Using moisturizer daily, and liberally massaging moisturizer on the treatment area is also beneficial. Do this daily to prevent fat and toxins from becoming stagnant and difficult to eliminate.
