Q: Can you tell me about ultrasonic cavitation inch loss treatment?
A: Ultrasonic cavitation is a treatment which is used to eliminate adipocytes, glucose and triglycerides which is fats, oils, sugars and to some degree excess water retention. It is an ultra sound treatment which can reach down deep below the skin surface, to the fat layer known as the hypodermis layer of cells.
Due to the ultra sound parameters it only reaches the hypodermis layer and has no impact on any other organs within the body. The treatment emulsifies fat by generating bubbles in the hypodermis layer. The bubbles burst around the fat cells and the energy this produces breaks down the fat cell wall. Once it has broken this fat down it then is converted to a substance which our body will eliminate through the metabolic and lymphatic system. The body eventually eliminates it through urination.
The treatment itself is pain free and non-invasive. This means no skin cutting and no body wrapping. There are no pills, powders, lotions or potions involved with this treatment. The ultrasonic cavitation treatment machine is a flat, smooth, metal round pad which is operated by a professional throughout. The treatment lasts around 20-30 minutes only and you will not be left on your own so any questions you may have can be asked throughout treatment or it can be paused if needed.
As this is a sound wave treatment, you will hear a relatively loud bleeping whilst the treatment is taking place and when the metal pad is in contact with your skin. Once this is taken off, the sound will reduce instantly. Some people who may have previous health conditions with hearing such as tinnitus, may experience a very brief spell of onset tinnitus. This is completely normal and nothing to be concerned about. Your hearing will soon return back to normal.
After treatment you must drink at least 2 liters of water and do a minimum of 30 minutes exercise within a 48-hour window after each session. This is due to the substance broken down by cavitation which is sitting in the lymph and metabolic system. The water and exercises speed up the process of elimination. A lymphatic draining massage is encouraged to also help with the process, plus it’s a nice excuse to have a massage! 6-10 treatments are recommended in 3 to 4 day intervals, depending on your personal circumstances.
The National Center for Biotechnology Information clinically proved that ultrasonic cavitation caused a significant reduction of fat. The trials were done over a period of 4 weeks, and each patient had one session per week.
You must try to maintain a healthy lifestyle. No fat elimination treatment comes with a guarantee whether it be under surgery or non-surgical. It is always advised to drink 2 liters of water a day, take regular exercise, eat three healthy meals per day and limit snacking.
If you have found yourself to slightly be drifting back into old habits and need to be treated again it is advised to maintain by having one treatment every 6 months if required. Not everyone will need this, and it depends on your personal situation. Some may only need a few treatments. For example if you are a regular gym user and you are trying very hard to lose an area of stubborn fat, this type of treatment is absolutely ideal as you may only need one. However, your clinic or hospital professional will look at your individual needs with you and decide the best option for you.
The price for this type of treatment ranges variably but you would look on average at around £400-£800 for a course depending on the area the treatment takes place.
