Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a simple procedure that relies on sound waves to flush fat from the body instead of intensive surgery.
How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?
During an ultrasonic cavitation procedure, non-invasive machines target specific body areas with low-frequency sound waves. This process heats and vibrates the layer of fat cells below the skin's surface. The pressure eventually causes the fat cells to liquefy and release their contents into the bloodstream. The body is then able to process these fatty acids through its proverbial waste-disposal plant: the lymphatic system.
How Much Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Cost?
The cost of ultrasonic cavitation varies greatly depending on the treatment area. During a free consultation, exact cost is discussed based on individual goals. On average, session prices as part of a package start as low as $99.
Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?
Yes, but results may vary! Depending on the patient’s individual health history and body type, one patient may slim down more or less dramatically than others.
What Are The Expected Results?
Results can vary greatly from patient to patient. However, you should see:
Reduced circumference in the treated area (due to fat-cell release)
An overall contoured appearance
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Although most practices that offer ultrasonic cavitation claim you'll see results after the first session, they also caution that between 8 and 12 sessions are needed for optimum results. The exact number of treatments needed will vary due to factors such as age, weight, and fat density of the area being treated. For example, you need to consider how much fat you want to eliminate, how long the fat has been there, how dense the fat is, etc. Typically, a post-pregnancy patient wishing to eliminate a "muffin-top" leftover from childbirth may need 3-6 abdominal treatments, while a person who has been moderately obese for several years may need 2-3 times as many. Each treatment should take about 30 minutes when performed as a stand alone treatment. In the case of 3D Lipo we use each additional treatment for 10 minutes.
Is It Invasive? Is There Any Downtime?
The answer is no to both of those.
How quickly will I begin to see results?
You should notice a measurable difference immediately after your first treatment, with the most dramatic difference observable 72 hours after each treatment.
What kind of results can I expect after each treatment?
Results with Ultrasonic Cavitation will vary depending on how long the fat has existed, how dense it is, how hydrated you are, how well your lymph is circulating, etc. Immature, light and fluffy fat (surface fat) is much easier to eliminate than mature, dense fat, and thin lymph fluid will yield more rapid results than thick, viscous fluid. Statistically, you can expect up to 1-2" loss after the first treatment and up to 1/4" - 2" after each subsequent treatment.
Will I end up with saggy skin if I lose a lot of weight?
Ultrasonic Cavitation has a firming, toning and tightening effect on the skin and muscle tissue, so even if you have sagging skin resulting from earlier weight loss efforts, ultrasound cavitation will help. Of course, actual results will vary.
How often can/should I receive Ultrasonic Cavitation treatments?
You can safely receive Ultrasonic Cavitation treatments as often as every three days. Of course, the more frequently you receive treatments, the faster and more dramatic will be your results. It’s important for your liver to be healthy.
How much of my body is treated during each appointment?
A single 30 minute treatment session can cover an area the size of your belly, your inner/front or outer/back thighs, your buttocks or your back. Smaller areas, such as a double chin and upper arm flab, can be treated together. We recommended focusing at least three treatments to a single area before moving around to other areas, so obvious results may be achieved more quickly.
Who can get Ultrasonic Cafitation treatmens?
The best candidates for Ultrasonic fat removal are healthy men and women who are moderately overweight, hoping to lose between 5-40 pounds.
