What is Ultrasonic body cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation uses low frequency ultrasound waves to break down adipose tissue (a.k.a. fat). With the vibrations of the ultrasound waves being sent deep into your skin the fat cells are disrupted and dislodged from the dermal layers. As fat cells are permanently destroyed, they are disposed of within the body through your lymphatic, endocrine and excretory systems. Results are immediate but last longest when paired with healthy eating and exercise. The treatment is painless and comfortable. You will hear a slight ringing noise in your ear due to the ultrasound but causes no harm and disappears as soon as the applicator is moved away from body. You may also experience warmth during the treatment.
What is Radio Frequency?
Radio Frequency superficially heats the dermis and upper quarter layer of fat. This causes fibroblasts within your cell to boost collagen & elastin production to tighten and lift skin. Once the radio frequency reaches 40-45 degrees C it begins to eliminate fat cells which are then expelled through your bodies natural waste elimination process. If you have flabby skin, a post pregnancy tummy, fine lines or wrinkles, saddle bags or a sagging bum, radio frequency body contouring is meant for you.

Do I need to follow any guidelines before or after?
-Try to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. This includes tanning (natural or artificial). It would be more likely to suffer pain from the addition of heat to the already damaged skin; however an established tan would be fine.
-Do not have hot shower, bath or sauna right after the Ultrasound treatment.
-We recommend a low calorie diet with protein in each meal and drink at least a glass of warm water (not carbonated, sparkling water, soda, coffee) before and after the session. Drinking plenty of water and having exercise such as brisk walk, biking or other aerobic activities for at least 3 days after the treatment to stimulate the lymphatic activity as elimination of the fat continues through the Lymphatic System for 72hrs. Follow by a suitable exercise routine. Cavitation will be best performed under high hydration conditions, avoid taking any caffeine or diuretics 2 days before therapy. Drink a lot of water will help to improve your metabolism and increase urine output lipid metabolites release out of your body.
-A lymph-draining massage is also encouraged to improve the circulation and lymphatic system, which helps to drain fluids.
- For best results you should refrain from any alcohol consumption for 48 hours after the treatment. Alcohol consumption during this period may prevent your liver from removing the deactivated fat cells from your body (as the liver will assign priority to removing the alcohol from your blood).
- Maintain an un-stressful lifestyle also helps the body flush out the fat more efficiently.
