Ultrasonic Cavitation Treatment
Weight loss has become an entire industry, with many different products and services available. At Skin Appeal, we are pleased to be able to offer the latest technology to combat weight issues. Over time, a slimmer figure can be achieved through targeting key parts of the body with ultrasonic cavitation treatments.
It’s a procedure that has grown in popularity in recent years because, unlike liposuction, ultrasonic cavitation treatment is a non-invasive way to remove fat.
What is ultrasonic cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a simple, non-surgical procedure that uses sound waves to flush fat from the body.
How does ultrasonic cavitation work?
Ultrasound machines are used to target specific parts of body with low-frequency (ultrasonic) sound waves. This process heats and vibrates the layer of fat cells underneath the skin’s surface – the pressure created causes the fat cells to soften and release their contents into the bloodstream. Experts suggest that the contents of these fat cells become easier for the body to dispose of as they pass through the lymphatic system.
How much does ultrasonic cavitation cost?
Abdominal area: £75 (4 treatments £250)
Upper arm area: £50 (4 treatments £175)
Thigh areas: £75 (4 treatments £250)
Butt lift: £75 (4 treatments £250)
Does ultrasonic cavitation work?
Results can vary based on individual health history and body type – some patients benefit from more visible results than others. Factors such as diet can also impact how long the treatment remains effective for.
It’s widely understood that ultrasonic cavitation helps achieve the following results:
1. Tightened skin and reduced cellulite (due to the production of new collagen and elastin fibres)
2. Reduced fat volume in the treated area (due to fat cell release)
3. An overall contoured appearance (due to a combination of the benefits listed above)
How many treatments do I need?
Some practices will claim to achieve fat reduction after just one session, but for optimum results we’d suggest a course of 8 to 12 treatments. The exact number of treatments needed will vary due to factors such as age, weight, and the area being treated.
How long do ultrasonic cavitation results last?
Ultrasonic cavitation doesn’t destroy fat cells, it empties their contents – this means the cells are capable of storing fat again. A balanced diet is the only way to ensure lasting results. Consuming more calories than you burn will cause fat cells to expand, making it necessary to undergo treatment more regularly.
Is any downtime required following the procedure?
Ultrasonic cavitation is 100% non-surgical. No recovery time is required.
What are the different types of machines used for ultrasonic cavitation?
"Ultrasonic cavitation" is a generic term for non-invasive liposuction procedures that are carried out using low-frequency sound waves.
Although different devices can be used to perform this procedure, the majority will be pretty similar to each other. The main difference tends to be the precise frequency and concentration of the sound waves they produce.
