You may also experience warmth during the treatment if you're getting RF done. If on the slim chance it gets too warm, you can let your technician know so that extra ultrasound gel can be applied.

What is the Ultrasound Fat Cavitation treatment like?

The procedure starts with circumference measurement of the target body area, then a gel is applied so the ultrasound device can be directly applied to specific areas of the skin, the device is then continued with circular and sideway movements of the applicator over the treatment site. For a combo session, a Radio Frequency hand piece is used which is slowly rotated over the targeted area, transmitting radio waves to the skin heating it 40 to 50 degrees Celsius without burning the skin's surface. The heat causes contraction of the collagen fibres to immediately tighten the skin. Then finalized with another circumference measurement. The duration of treatment sessions normally take around 10-30 minutes each depending on the number of session you are on, size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer. Results can sometimes be noticed after the first treatment with more improvement noticed within a few days. 2-4 sessions at 3 day intervals are recommended in order to achieve an ideal result. Then 4-8 are done weekly and 8-12 are done bi-weekly. After that, more sessions can be obtained if needed on a weekly or monthly basis. (Talk to your technician about this).

  • 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 a 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, pop, coffee) before and after the session. Drinking plenty of water and having exercise such as brisk walking, 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 72 hrs. 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.
