Cavitation is suitable for someone who is generally fit and healthy who wants to loose stubborn inches and have a more contoured figure.
Ultrasound Cavitation is one of the most effective cellulite and fat loss techniques available, furthermore there is no requirement to exercise post treatment in order to obtain results. In Europe and The United States, the numbers of surgical liposuction procedures is fast being replaced with Cavitation based treatments delivering excellent results without the need for surgery.
The following areas can be treated with Cavitation:
- The waist and abdomen; ( stomach and flanks)
- The back fat ( bra fat)
- “bingo wings”
Ultrasound Cavitation is a natural phenomenon which sends a pressurised wave to fat cells which cannot withstand the pressure and hence disintegrate into a liquid form. Once liquefied, the fat drains naturally from the cell and passes through the lymphatic system, leaving the body through its normal metabolic process. Drinking extra fluids aids this process.
The treatment, when performed by a qualified therapist is very safe and has minimal downtime.

Before you undergo treatment you will need to have a consultation with a Cosmetic Therapist. During your consultation your Therapist will explain the procedure fully and ask for your medical history to determine whether there are any reasons why you shouldn’t undertake this treatment. You will be asked to sign a consent form which means that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated with the procedure. Careful discussions regarding your reasons for wanting treatment are very important before you begin your treatment. You must also make sure that this treatment can deliver what you want and how you would like to look afterwards. Your Therapist should be able to answer all these questions.
Photographs may also be taken by your therapist for a “before and after” comparison at a later date.
Cavitation generally consists of 6 – 8 sessions at weekly intervals however your programme will be tailored to your individual needs. Some patients require less and some more, following a break.
Most patients report Cavitation as being a pain free, comfortable treatment. Patients will generally experience a ‘cheeping’ noise in their ears, this poses no harm and disappears as soon as the applicator is removed from your body.
Your practitioner will mark out the area being treated to give them guidance. A ultrasound gel will then be applied to the area being treated. Your therapist will then use a handheld device delivering ultrasound energy, and gently glide it over the marked area.
The treatment generally takes 30 minutes to 1 hour and is often combined with other 3D treatments to achieve best results.
