What is the Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation treatment like?
The procedure starts with circumference measurement of the target body area, applies the ultrasonic device directly to specific areas of the skin after a gel is applied, continues with circular 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 surface. The heat causes contraction of the collagen fibers to immediately tighten the skin. Then finalized with another circumference measurement. The duration of treatment session normally takes around 15-30 minutes each depending on the 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. 6 - 12 sessions at 3 days intervals are recommended in order to achieve an ideal result, but further treatments may be needed to attain your desired figure.

Try to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. This includes tanning (natural or artificial). The treatment involves some heat will further irritate already irritated skin.
Do not have hot shower , bath or sauna right after the Ultrasound treatment
We recommend a low calorie diet and drinking plenty of water. Exercise can be as mild as house cleaning or a brisk walk to ensure proper body maintenance. The process continues to produce results three days after the treatment so proper maintenance is recommended. Cavitation will be best performed when you are well hydrated so avoid taking any caffeine or diuretics 2 days before therapy. Drinking a lot of water will help to improve your metabolism and increase urine output of lipid metabolites released out of your body after the treatments.
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 life style also helps the body flush out the fat more efficiently.
