IS ULTRASOUND CAVITATION A SAFE PROCEDURE?
Yes, It is safe, comfortable, non-invasive procedure with no known side-effects. The ultrasound energy only targets the fatty tissue layer beneath the skin and does not affect the blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues.
IS ULTRASOUND CAVITATION PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
No, it is pain free. The only discomfort come from hearing a high pitched sound in your ears, which is simply the sound of the ultrasound waves resonating in your ears and the ultrasound head can sometimes get a little warm but never unbearable.
HOW LONG DOES THE BODY SCULPTING PROCEDURE TAKE?
20-40 minutes each area is recommended; Thighs (saddle bags), Abdominal (love handles), Hips (flanks), Buttock, Upper arm, etc… Typically we spend 20-30 min with Ultrasound followed by 10-20 min Radiofrequency for about an hour of total time.
IS THERE ANY SPECIAL CARE BEFORE OR AFTER TREATMENT?
The body continues to expel the liquefied fat cells up to 72 hours after treatment so plenty of water helps speed up the process along with vibrations, plate, lymphatic massage, lymphatic drainage supports, and liver supports.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
Immediately, that is what’s great about the ultrasound cavitation. You may loose up to 2-3 inches after only one session time varies based on type of process used by your technician and whether just ultrasound or combination with radiofrequency.
DOES IT WORK ON CELLULITE?
Yes, low frequency ultrasound and radiofrequency generally works on cellulite by focusing on “cavitation effect” on the fat tissue while causing the skin to tighten when followed by (RF) and using compounds that help break up cellulite.
HOW DOES RADIOFREQUENCY OR PULSED LIGHT WORK?
Radiofrequency (RF) works similar to the way your microwave oven reheats food. RF energy acts on your tissue to induce heat. The goal is to control the heating to be “just enough” to stimulate “good” tightening of your tissues.
HOW DOES RADIOFREQUENCY TIGHTEN SKIN?
Compared to other skin tightening treatment, the major difference for light and RF is that the epidermis or outer skin layer is not damaged in any way but the radiofrequency energy or light energy heats the deeper skin layers during the treatment. The body’s natural wound healing response then causes collagen changes in the skin with resultant skin tightening. A series of these treatments is usually performed for optimum results.
WILL (RF) BE PAINFUL?
The pain level depends upon the device and setting used. Current treatments are less painful than older protocols as less energy and more “passes” are generally used.
WILL THERE BE SCARRING?
The risk of scarring is very small. Make sure to let your technician know your level of comfort to protect your skin.
WHAT ARE TYPICAL EFFECTS THAT CAN OCCURE SHORT TERM?
Some patients may experience skin redness, temporary swelling of the treated area and temporary numbness of the area.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF (RF)?
No surgery required, minimal discomfort, may be used on all skin types, rare downtime, non-invasive technique that can tighten facial or body skin.
