Body Contouring - Cavitation
What is body contouring cavitation?
Body contouring cavitation is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to reduce localized fat and sculpt the body through the use of ultrasonic waves. Also known as ultrasonic cavitation, this technique targets stubborn fat deposits without surgery, offering a convenient alternative to traditional liposuction. It's important to note that individual responses to body contouring cavitation can vary.
How long is the session? 30 minutes
- The client is usually asked to hydrate adequately before the procedure. A conductive gel may be applied to the targeted areas to enhance the transmission of ultrasonic waves.
- A handheld device is used to deliver ultrasonic waves onto the targeted areas. These waves create pressure changes in the fat cells, leading to the formation of microscopic bubbles through a process known as cavitation.
- The disruption of fat cell membranes results in the release of triglycerides (fats) from the cells into the interstitial fluid.
Metabolism and Elimination:
- The released fat is then metabolized by the body's natural processes. They are either utilized for energy or eliminated through the lymphatic system and liver.
- After the procedure, clients are usually encouraged to stay hydrated to support the elimination of releasing fats. It's common for professionals to recommend a healthy diet and exercise to maximize results.
Benefits of Body Contouring Cavitation:
- Ultrasonic cavitation is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, making it an attractive option for those seeking body contouring without the risks associated with surgery.
- The treatment is effective for reducing stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, and buttocks.
- Unlike surgical procedures, there is typically no downtime associated with body contouring cavitation. Clients can resume their normal activities immediately after the session.
- Results are gradual and may become noticeable after a series of treatments. The body continues to metabolize released fats over time.
Improvement in Skin Tightness:
- Some individuals experience improved skin tightness in the treated areas, as the process stimulates collagen production.
- The treatment can be customized to target specific problem areas, providing a tailored approach to body contouring.
