Cavitation / Body Sculpting FAQ

What is Cavitation ?

Ultrasound cavitation is now recognised as one of the most effective cellulite reduction and local fat loss technologies available to date. It is based on low frequency ultrasound wave to mechanically disrupt the cell membrane of the fat cell. The ultrasound wave creates a vibration within the fat layer. The Fat cells do not have the structural capacity to handle this vibration causing the cell membrane to very quickly breakdown into a liquid state while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue. The result is safe instant fat loss.


What happens to the released fat?

After disruption of the fat cell membrane the fat in the form of triglycerides is released into the empty space between the cells where they are enzymatically metabolised to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the bodies energy source whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and eliminated as fatty acids from food.


What Will I Feel During the Instant Fat Loss Treatment?

The treatment does not require anesthesia or any form of topical numbing agent. Most clients consider the procedure painless and comfortable. There may be, however, a slight discomfort due to the specific noise spreading inside your body resulting in a slight ringing in the ears, but it poses no harm and disappears as soon as you are not in contact with the applicator. You may also experience a little warmth during the treatment. If it turns burning hot, immediately request some extra ultrasound gel to be applied. When the applicator comes in contact with a boner area a slight pinching feeling may be felt which quickly disappears ones the applicator is no longer in contact with the bony surface.


Can I Expect Any Side Effects?

There is a slight possibility of mild side effects such as redness of the area being treated, excessive thirst, and nausea immediately after the treatment which always resolves by drinking water. They are all short-term effects that disappear in a few hours to a few days. Even though studies have proven the treatment completely safe, cavitation is not be used on clients with an acute illness, comprised liver and kidney function, severe bleeding tendencies, pace makers, or during pregnancy.


What Are the Expected Instant Fat Loss Treatment Results?

The cavitation treatment yields immediate and longlasting results. Most people experience 2 to 8cm of circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after each visit. The results may vary with different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. Proper diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain the results.


Which Machine works?

Our clients have reported the longest lasting success with our 3d lipo cavitation machine used at our Parramatta / Merrylands clinic. Other machines on the market are not as widely used and do not provide clinic results.
