ULTRASOUND CAVITATION FAT DISSOLVING
Ultrasound Cavitation uses scientifically proven non-invasive technology to break down unwanted fat on the body
Ultrasonic cavitation is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment which uses sound waves to flush fat from the body. The treatment uses low-frequency ultrasound waves to target subcutaneous fat cells in the fat cell membrane through a series of microscopic implosions.
Ultrasonic Cavitation can be used on the following areas:
Upper Arms (bingo wings)
Upper back (under bra line)
Lower Back & Waist (love handles)
The inner side of thighs
Benefits of Ultrasonic Cavitation
Improved blood and lymph circulation
Detoxification by removing toxins bound in adipocyte cells
Spot fat reduction
Decreases fatty deposits/constricts connective tissue
Reduces the appearance of cellulite
Tightens connective tissue to lift and tone the skin (when combined with radio frequency)
Improved appearance and feel of skin
What can Ultrasonic Cavitation be combined with?
Duration of results Permanent if healthy lifestyle is maintained
Number of treatments
6-12 spaced 1 weeks apart
Frequently Asked Questions
How does ultrasonic cavitation work?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a non-surgical, non-invasive fat removal treatment based on a low frequency ultrasound.
Ultrasound waves are emitted from transducers on the hand piece and travel into the subcutaneous fat causing ‘cavitation’ of the fat cell – the emulsification of solid fat substances releasing triglyceride fluid into the interstitial fluid between cells which is then eliminated through the urinary and the lymphatic systems.
The ultrasound field, when applied to the target area, creates bubbles (known as the Cavitation Effect) in the liquid that surrounds fat cells containing fatty acids, triglycerides and water. These bubbles create internal pressure and movement on the fat cell. This pressure is too much for the cell to withstand, so the bonds of the cell membrane break causing lipids (fats) inside the cell to leak out and disintegrate into a liquid state, which is then expelled through the body’s normal metabolic method as the fluid is enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids.
The result is natural fat loss without damage to other tissues or organs. Ultrasound cavitation destroys fat cells leading to fat storage which is significantly reduced or eliminated
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed to see noticeable changes varies from person to person. Most clients will need anywhere between 6-12 treatments for optimal results. Some results may be noticed immediately, but definite results are generally noticed after the third treatment.
Is Ultrasonic Cavitation Safe?
Yes, it is a safe, comfortable, and non-invasive procedure with virtually no side effects. It does not require anesthesia, leaves no scars and does not require any post treatment. The ultrasound energy is designed to target fatty tissues beneath the skin only, and does not affect the blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues.
Are there any contraindiactions?
Unfortunately not all treatments are for everyone. Please check our contraindications list to make sure you avoid disappointment.

What should I do before and after my treatment?
Drink at least 2 liters of water before your treatment and another 2 liters per day following your treatment (soft drink, soda, juice or tea is not water).
Refrain from ANY alcohol consumption for 2 – 3 days following your treatments. Alcohol can prevent your liver from working to remove fats as it will make alcohol metabolism its priority before fat removal and could hinder your results.
Refrain from caffeine for 3-4 days prior to your treatment and for 48 hours after treatment.
Avoid eating 2 hours prior and 1 hour after your treatment.
Refrain from aspirin, ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory products for 2 days prior and after your treatment.
Use dry skin brushing daily to stimulate lymph movement (your therapist will show you how to do this).
Do not have a hot shower (warm is alright), spa or sauna straight after treatment.
Diet: Follow a low carb, low starch, low sugar diet for best results.
Exercise: Do brisk exercise for at least 20 minutes after your treatment to stimulate lymph movement.
Does it work for everyone?
Is the procedure painful?
No, the treatment is painless. A slight tingling sensation or buzzing in the ear may sometimes be felt during the treatment. Some heat sensation may also be felt during treatment but no pain. Any slight reddening of the skin which may sometimes develop during or soon after treatment quickly disappears, some report a ‘post workout’ type of soreness.
Does it work on Cellulite?
Yes, low frequency ultrasound (40kHz) generally works well on cellulite by focusing the ‘cavitation effect’ on the superficial fat tissue. Best results are obtained when the ultrasound is applied in conjunction with the ‘radio frequency’ (RF) and Vacuum Therapy, which helps to tighten and tone the skin and break up pinched fascia that creates the dimpling affect.
What long term results can I expect with ultrasonic cavitation?
You can achieve ‘volume reduction’ of fatty tissues and ‘toning of the body’. The results are gradual over a number of weeks as your body clears the broken down fatty tissues. The results can be long lasting provided you follow a healthy diet and exercise program. However it is very easy to deposit fat again into the tissues if one over-eats, consumes too much alcohol or lives a sedentary lifestyle. Ultimately the result may vary depending on the individual’s different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medication, and changes in hormones.
Can I lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Fat Cavitation is not a treatment for obesity nor is it a weight loss procedure. Rather is a method for ‘reshaping’ and ‘toning’ the body. It is particularly intended to reduce localized fat tissues which are resistant to exercise around the abdomen (love handles), buttocks, and thighs (saddle bags), that won’t easily go away by simple dieting and exercise.

It’s important to understand the difference between visceral fat and subcutaneous fat.
