What IS Cavitation?

This machine uses ultrasound waves - yes, the same type of sound waves used to view babies in the womb but at a different frequency and speed - to cause vibrations within fat cells below the skin. These vibrations are not harmful, nor do they penetrate below the subcutaneous fat layer.

 

These vibrations cause tiny microscopic bubbles to form within the fat cells. These continued vibrations cause the fat cells to rupture and spill their contents into the interstitial tissues.

 

This fluid is then picked up by our lymphatic system and flushed out as waste. This will usually cause increased urination for up to 72 hours, but depending on your body type, diet and how many toxins are stored in your fat cells, a slight increase in bowel movement may also occur.

What To Expect After An Ultrasonic Cavitation Treatment


The treatment process is completely painless and you will be able to go about the rest of your day unaffected.

 

During the treatment, you will hear an internal ringing in your ears as cavitation utilizes sound waves. Most clients are able to ignore it and many even fall asleep during a treatment!

The results will be different for people based on their age, weight, health, etc.

Typically, results can be seen immediately after one treatment, with cumulative effects after each session.

 

The body requires three days to eliminate the fat and toxins after the procedure properly, and following the aftercare advice is crucial for achieving the best results.
