What happens to the released fat?
After disruption and emulsification of the fat cells, liquid which makes up the fat cells, in the form of triglycerides, is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells. This fluid is then metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the energy source, whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food.
What is the treatment like?
The cavitation treatment does not require any special pre-treatment. It starts with circumference measurement of the target body area and continues with use ultrasonic pads or some time applicator over the treatment site.
The duration of treatment session normally takes around 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer.
Is Ultrasonic Body Shaping a safe treatment?
Yes, the therapist will complete a medical questionnaire with you to make sure it is safe for you to undergo this kind of treatment. It is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or need post-operative course) and it allows for a full social life both before and after the sessions.
Is Ultrasonic Cavitation painful?
No, cavitation is a completely painless treatment.
Can these treatments be performed on male and females?
Yes, of course.
Which are the areas where treatment is more effective?
All those areas with localized fat and cellulite: thighs, abdomen, buttocks, hip flanks, arms and legs.
Is it possible to lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is NOT a method to lose weight but rather to shape the body. The treatment is used to reduce stubborn fatty pockets that just won’t go away with diet and exercise and to improve the appearance of cellulites.
Must you follow any guidelines before or after undergoing Ultrasonic Cavitation?
We recommend a low calorie diet and to drink at least 1.0-1.5 liters of water before and after the session. After the session we recommend to do a small amount of cardio (brisk walk/jog). Drinking water and half an hour of cardio is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat.
What are the side effects of Ultrasound Fat Cavitation?
You can go about your normal activities right away. You may continue to experience a residual buzzing or ringing sound in your ears for up to 24 hours. Skin trauma is rare, however the area treated may retain warmth for a few hours afterwards.
It is not uncommon for stool movements to be oily in the days that follow, or for urine to have an unusual smell as excess waste leaves the body. It is absolutely vital to keep water intake high during the days following treatment to help flush your system.
What might prevent me having an Ultrasound Fat Cavitation treatment?
Cancer: Cancer cells travel via the lymphatic system, as does waste produced by Ultrasound Cavitation. A treatment presents an unacceptable risk of helping to move cancer cells.
Cold or flu symptoms or fever: Ultrasound Cavitation releases toxins from the body via the lymphatic system, and treatments can exacerbate flu symptoms which also leave the body the same way.
Swollen lymph nodes: Treatments cannot be performed in areas where lymph nodes are swollen, infected, or not draining properly.
Oedema: Oedema or localised swelling of limbs indicates poor lymphatic flow. Treatments are not designed to alleviate oedema and may in fact exacerbate the condition.
Active Infections & Immunosuppression: These factors compromise the healing ability of the body, and Ultrasound Cavitation should not be attempted until the infection or deficiency is cleared.
Liver, Kidney, or Heart Disease: Compromises the ability of the body to recover from treatments.
Severe hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, diabetes mellitus, or poor circulation of blood and lymph.
Pregnancy: Sound waves generated by the treatment will very likely harm an unborn child’s hearing and may also result in compromising its immune system.
Breastfeeding: As mother’s milk draws nutrients from the body, there is an unacceptable degree of risk that toxins may pass into the milk and therefore be ingested by a nursing child.
Lymph nodes and joints cannot be treated with cavitation.
The face and neck cannot be treated with cavitation however RF can be.
Menstruation: During a period, the abdomen cannot be treated however other areas can be.
Metallic Implants: People who have metal implanted anywhere in their bodies, such as bone pins or pace makers cannot receive a treatment.
Skin allergies or inflammation: Areas with obvious signs of inflammation cannot be treated.
Minors: Due to the changing hormonal and fat deposits in the growing body during puberty, we do not treat clients under 18 years of age with Ultrasound Cavitation or Radio Frequency.
What after-care will optimize my results from an Ultrasound Fat Cavitation treatment?
Essentially, Ultrasound Fat Cavitation is designed to destabilise and break down fat into carbohydrates and waste material. If not followed by exercise and plenty of water, the destabilised fat will reform and resettle.
Think of the process in simple terms. Fat and sound waves. If you put a tub of butter in the microwave and heat it, the butter destabilises into liquid. If you leave it to sit however, it solidifies again.
The same applies to this treatment, and that’s why cardiovascular exercise and water are vital.
Cardio afterwards serves two purposes; to burn off the released carbohydrates, and to encourage the contraction and expansion of lymphatic vessels to channel out waste. Meanwhile, the water acts to thin that waste and to hasten its removal from the body through the urine.
For skin micro-needling, we use an electric skin needling device made especially for this purpose. The device a pen shaped studded with 12 very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation to new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.
What conditions can be treated or improved with Medical Micro-Needling?
How does Medical Micro-Needling work?
The device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.

SHR stands for Super Hair Removal,its a step forward in permanent hair reduction. The technology was invented by Alma Lasers in Israel, it is the most advanced way of removing unwanted hair.
SHR is faster than traditional IPL and Laser, its safer and its pain free in comparison.
How does SHR work?
How SHR works, is a revolutionary approach, rather that bombarding your skin with high amounts of Joules ( energy ), SHR fires multiple shots but at low Joules, in doing so it gently heats the hair follicle to the heat needed and the most you will feel is warmth and a tingling sensation, some clients comparing it to a warm massage. SHR also utilizes In-Motion technology, where the hand piece is always in motion over the skin.
Is SHR suitable for all skin types?
SHR is suitable for all skin types, even tanners, this is achievable because of the technology and techniques utilized. Unlike traditional Laser and IPL , SHR can be had all year round without having to hide from the sun.
How many treatments are needed.?
To fully treat the area you may require 4-6 treatments at four week intervals. A four week regime is important to maintain so that the SHR treatments get the hair at its four week re-growth. Near the end of the treatments 6-8 week intervals will be needed to finish off your course.
Super Hair Revomal (SHR) is used for general hair removal purposes. It can be used anywhere from the face to the extremities. It can be useful safely on all skin types. And most wonderfully, it is a painless treatment..
Ultrasound Fat Reduction Questions & Answers
Ultrasound- Cavitation Body Shaping is a aesthetic treatment. Using leading edge ultrasonic- cavitation technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own filtration system.
The treatment can be followed by a lymphatic drainage with pressotherapy, body wrapping, and manual massage therapy. These are very effective at eliminating liquids.
How it works?
The ultrasound-cavitation filed creates bubbles in the liquid that surround the fat cells, which gradually grow, and implode. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of ultrasonic cavitation easily breaks them, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue.
