Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I know if Ultrasonic Cavitation is right for me?
There are several factors to consider before undergoing ultrasonic treatments.
BMI – Clients with Body Mass Index over 40 may experience diminished results.
Weight Loss – Ultrasonic cavitation is not a weight loss treatment. Losses from ultrasonic cavitation treatments are usually less than one pound. The treatments are intended to reduce fat in specifically targeted areas only.
Medical Conditions - Although there are no specific contraindications; clients with any of the following medical conditions should not undergo the treatments:
- Medical implants (pins, joint replacements etc.) in treated area
- Failure or disease of major organs (kidney, liver, pancreas, bladder etc.)
- Cardiovascular Illness
- Acute Illness (cold, flu etc.)
- Severe bleeding tendencies
How does the treatment work?
Ultrasonic waves emitted from a handpiece bombard the targeted fatty tissue. These waves cause micro-bubbles to form on the surface of fat cells. These micr0-bubbles are imploded by the wave’s energy, causing the cell wall to break apart and release the triglycerides stored inside. These are broken down and released into the bloodstream where they are used for energy. The rest of the cell exits the body through the lymphatic system and the liver.
How many treatments are needed per area?
Generally six treatments are required to achieve maximum results in a given area. Appreciable results can be achieved in as few as three treatments.
What is a treatment area?
Treatment areas are listed below. Keep in mind that each area is a discrete treatment. For example: If you want to treat your love handles you will be booked for two areas.
Treatment areas are: Upper or lower abdomen, Left or right saddlebag, left or right love handle, left or right inner thigh, left or right front or back of upper leg, left or right upper arm, left or right upper back (bra strap), or left or right lower back.
