Ultrasound Fat Cavitation. Non-invasive ultrasonic permanent fat and cellulite removal without surgery.
Non-invasive Ultrasound Fat Removal Procedure
This scientifically developed medical Ultrasonic/RF technology is based on a medical breakthrough that uses biocavitational ultrasound waves and radio frequency energy, to selectively break down fat cells and cellulite without affecting neighbouring organs and cells. Immediately after treatment, your body clears away the disrupted fat cells, mainly through the liver and the body naturally metabolizes it through its own natural mechanisms.
The procedure is safe and comfortable and painless, has no side effects, and requires no anesthesia or sedation.
Ultrasonic Cavitation or Ultrasound Liposuction is a cutting edge new, non-surgical fat removal procedure. This revolutionary procedure was developed in Europe. Because there is no surgery and no anaesthesia, there is no hospital stay, no time off from work and no recovery time. Clients see immediate results and will continue to see results in the reduction of fat up to a week following the treatment.
What is Cavitation Lipo Ultrasound Technology?
Permanent Fat and Cellulite Reduction. Does not leave sagging skin but instead tightens and encourages new collagen cell growth. An excellent way to sculpture your body to how you want it to be. You can now take control of your own body sculpturing and change yourself to be the best that you can be.
This FDA approved technology has been 10 years in development and has been in the USA and available in 50 different countries for about 4 years but is still relatively new in New Zealand. It is very popular in Europe, UK, USA and Australia and widely used by men and women. It has been featured positively on many news channels and medical shows such as The Dr Oz show, The Doctors and E-Channel. Ultrasound has been proven to be a safe and effective technology and used on pregnant women for many years.
The ultrasound field creates bubbles in the liquid that surrounds fat cells, which gradually grow and implode. Membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations so the effect of Ultrasound Cavitation easily breaks them, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue. Ultrasound Cavitation causes an emulsification of the solid fat substances, releasing the triglyceride fluid, which is easy to eliminate and remove naturally through the body’s lymphatic system and metabolic pathways. The treatments are safe with no adverse effects.
After the disruption and emulsification of fat cells, liquid which makes up the fat cells, in the form of triglycerides, is released into the fluid between the cells. This fluid is then metabolized. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as an energy source, whereas the insoluble, free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food.
Body Sculpturing and Contouring for Men and Women. We have the latest advanced 2015 Ultrasound Cavitation Technology.
Ideal for those who do all the right things but still have stubborn and inflexible fat deposits that no matter how much you diet and exercise never seems to disappear. Once the fat is gone it is permanently destroyed. So if you maintain a good diet and regular exercise program it should be permanent and you should not anticipate it to come back. It can be used to target specific areas of the body i.e. stomach, arms, inner and outer thighs, chin, back, calves, in fact wherever there is excess fat. Results are visible every session whether this be inch loss or improved appearance of the skin. The most common problem areas are the buttocks, abdomen, love handles (flanks), saddle bags (thighs), upper arms, inner knees and male breasts.
Questions and Answers
What parts of the body can be treated with Cavitation Lipo Ultrasound?The most common problem areas that can be treated are the buttocks, abdomen, love handles (flanks), saddle bags (thighs), upper arms, calves, upper inner knees and male breasts. This cosmetic procedure is suitable for both men and women. There is no downtime or recovery time associated with this procedure.
Benefits and Improvements include:
Depending on each person’s individuals needs the number of sessions will vary for optimum results and an average of 3 to 10 sessions is normal for most clients.
The results may vary depending on a number of factors such as different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. Proper diet and physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain the results.
Cavitation-Lipo Ultrasonic is NOT a method to lose weight but rather to reshape and reduce fat on the body. The treatment works well with great results on hard to reduce stubborn fatty pockets that just won’t go away with diet and exercise. Cavitation-Lipo Ultrasonic can be considered to be a deep fat blaster that reduces stubborn fat cells that cannot be removed with exercise and diet alone.
The treatment is designed to help the average to overweight man or women achieve a reduced body size and improve their body shape and contour.
What is the procedure like and will I feel anything during the treatment ?Most people consider the treatments to be painless, relaxing and comfortable. The treatments are similar to a hot stone massage. Clients usually feel a light tingling or warmth in the area being treated. This is completely normal.
Ultrasound gel is applied to the area to be treated first which may feel slightly cold and then the Ultrasound Cavitation head will be used to treat and eliminate the fat followed by the Vacuum procedure which breaks up the fat even more and Radio Frequency to tighten the skin and generate new collagen growth eliminating the risk of sagging skin after the fat has been emulsifided into a liquid in the form of triglycerides.
Radio Frequency treatments can also feel similar to a hot stone massage. Radio Frequency causes heating of the skin and underlying tissues resulting in the generation and creation of new collagen cell growth and rejuvenation by the tightening of the skin. The results are equal to and better than laser and other older technologies.
Some people may feel a slight discomfort due to the specific noise spreading inside the body caused by the ultrasound, but this causes no harm and disappears as soon as the Cavitation Ultrasound applicator is not in contact with the skin/body. The sound poses absolutely no risk or harm and allows you to know that the process is working.
What can I expect before and after treatments?Specific guidelines for before and after the treatment.
Prior to having Ultrasound Cavitation, it is important to follow a low-fat/low-carbohydrate diet and drink up to 8 glasses of water 24 hours before your treatment. You should continue drinking 8 glasses of water a day for 3 days after the treatment to facilitate the removal of fat and toxins and flush them out of the body. Fat elimination is accelerated by the amount of water your drink therefore, water is a key component to eliminate the fat.
It is recommended that you exercise immediately after treatments which will help stimulate your lymphatic flow. This includes doing activities such as swimming, jogging, brisk walking and low-impact work-outs for a least 10 minutes and preferably up to 30 minutes. Avoid vigorous weight lifting as it can create lactic acid. Also, lymphatic massage and detoxification can help to optimize and enhance the process. Lymphatic massage helps facilitate the removal and release of toxins and fat as you go through the Ultrasound process.
To maximize the effectiveness of your treatment, it is best to restrict products that impact lymphatic flow (i.e. caffeine and sugar in large amounts) during the process. You should consume NO alcohol for 24 hours prior to and following your treatment. A healthy diet and exercise will help to maximize your results.
Are there any side effects?
Extensive clinical trials have been conducted worldwide and the results have demonstrated an excellent safety profile of the Cavitation Lipo Ultrasonic procedure. This procedure has now been approved by the FDA in the United States. Clinical trials and studies have been conducted on over 200,000 patient treatments around the world with little or no side effects resulting from the procedure. Unlike many other non-invasive treatments Cavi Lipo is scientifically and clinically proven safe and effective.
Mild pink or redness may appear occasionally but does not cause pain. The heat caused by the equipment is perfectly tolerable.
You may experience a residual buzzing or ringing sound in your ears for up to 24 hours after a treatment. Skin trauma is rare, however the area treated may retain warmth for a few hours afterwards.
For 1 or 2 days following a treatment it is not uncommon for stool movements to change in colour or be oily. Urine may have an unusual smell as toxins and waste leave your the body.
This may last for up to 3 weeks but this is completely normal.
Who can have this treatment?
We do not recommend treating people with the following conditions:
Commonly asked questions
Where Does the Fat Go?
The Ultrasonic Cavitation procedure is based on a natural fat clearance process where triglycerides and cell debris from the immediately destroyed fat cells are processed by the body's natural physiological and metabolic pathways. These pathways are the same that handle fat during weight loss. Ultrasonic Cavitation peer-reviewed published multi-center controlled clinical trial and other independent clinical studies show that the released triglycerides do not accumulate to a clinically significant extent in the blood or liver.
Who is it for?
The treatment has been designed to help average to overweight men and women acquire an improved body shape and contour. It offers a non-surgical alternative to patients seeking effective reduction of localized fat deposits without surgery.
What body areas are treated?
The treatment focuses on most areas of the body including the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, hips, knees, back etc.
What results can I expect?
Clinical results show that in three treatments, patients see an average of 6 cm reduction in circumference. A 4 - 10 treatment regimen may be recommended to achieve maximum results. As with any non-invasive procedure the results you see may differ from the clinical trial results and patient to patient.
What does the procedure feel like?
Clients usually feel light-to-moderate tingling or warmth in the treated area. It is a relaxing treatment feeling similar to massage.
What happens after treatment?
There is no downtime or recovery time associated with the Ultrasonic Cavitation. It is recommended you have a brisk walk, or jog, vibra train or lymphatic drainage massage immediately after treatment. Drinking 1.5 litres of water soon after treatment will help the kidneys flush the body of toxins and fat. You should maintain a healthy diet and routine exercise to maximize results.
How long will it take to see results? It will take the contents of the broken-down fat cells to be cleared by the body over a 7 day period. Circumference and fat thickness reduction is usually seen within the first 7 - 28 days post treatment.
How does the Ultrasonic Cavitation technology work?
The Ultrasonic Cavitation technology uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to deliver controlled ultrasound at a precise depth within the fat layer. The technology is selective, meaning that only fat cells are broken down and surrounding important structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue remain intact. The treatment area is marked and each point within that designated area is treated only once to ensure complete and uniform treatment.
What happens to the fat after the treatment?
During the treatment, the fat cells are ruptured. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of triglycerides, is broken down and transported to the liver. The fat is processed via the body's natural mechanisms and is available to be turned into building blocks for energy. Whatever is unused will be excreted from the body.
Are there any side effects?
Extensive clinical trials and over 200,000 patient treatments performed worldwide have demonstrated the excellent safety profile of the Ultrasonic Cavitation procedure. 1-2 days following a treatment there is a change in the colour of your bowel movements that may last for up to 3 weeks. This is completely normal.
How long will the results last? Just as with liposuction, once fat cells are removed from the treatment area the results are expected to be long lasting, as long as you maintain your weight with a healthy diet and exercise.
How does the Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment differ from other non- invasive body contouring treatments, which are based on lymphatic massage or radio- frequency technologies?
The Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment uses focused ultrasound waves which selectively target fat cells in the underlying fat layers. This is different from other non-invasive body contouring treatments, which may only enhance the lymphatic system activity to increase lymphatic drainage. Those treatments may only temporarily reduce the volume of the fat cells, not destroy and reduce the number of fat cells therefore the results are temporary and maintenance treatments are required. Ultrasonic Cavitation destroys the fat cells in the focal area and increases blood circulation and lymphatic system activity to expedite the clearance of the liquefied fat. The results are long lasting.
How does the Cavi Lipo procedure differ from other non-invasive ultrasound treatments for body contouring?
Cavi Lipo uses pulsed focused ultrasound energy which selectively targets and destroys fat cells. Other ultrasound technology uses non-focused standard ultrasound which cannot break down fat cells.. Cavi Lipo is the only system in the world to use a unique real-time tracking and guidance system for 3D mapping of the body’s curvature to ensure complete and uniform energy delivery over the entire treatment area, minimizing the risk of contour irregularities, a common side effect of liposuction. Unlike many other non-invasive treatments Cavi Lipo is scientifically and clinically proven safe and effective.
