radio frequency cavitation banish fat

Want to target fatty areas for a contoured figure? Use radio frequency cavitation.

After this confidence-enhancing, non-surgical and non-invasive fat removal procedure, customers usually see immediate weight loss results from radio frequency cavitation and continue to see results up to 72 hours after treatment as our bodies continue to break down and remove fatty deposits. Incidentally, this is why we recommend exercise within 3 days, so you get the most out of your experience. The movement enhances our body’s ability to expel these contents.

We store fat in special cells called Adipose cells. Low frequency ultrasound waves heats then gently breaks up these cells into small particles. Ultimately, these then turn into liquid waste which allows our lymphatic system to easily dispose of the fat. This process is “cavitation”. It’s also gotten the title of non-invasive liposuction because we get rid of deep layers of fat with no kind of painful incision. The end results are often the contouring of stubborn areas of fat with minimum recovery, downtime or pain.

Your trained therapist will use RF (radio frequency cavitation) therapy with elite technology to tighten the skin after you’ve had fat reduction. You need this because our skin has stretched to fit the space that the stored fat previously took up. Radiofrequency allows our body to naturally create more collagen and elastin in our subcutaneous layer which makes our skin spring back, causing tightening faster and better.

The most common problem areas that achieve significant results typically are the buttocks, stomach, love handles, male chest, upper arms, inner thighs and chin area. It is effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite and wrinkles where the machine targets.

What are the benefits?

Cavitation is the perfect treatment for people who want to shape their bodies and regain their confidence in themselves and their figure. It’s also great if you’re looking to reduce BMI fast for e.g. IVF fertility treatments.

We performed the treatment on targeted areas with minimal application pressure using our systems outcome driven hand-held devices. Each of these contains different radio frequencies based on the area we are treating and how thick (delicate) this layer of skin is before we hit the fat layer we’re trying to release.

By targeting specific areas, it helps reduce and eliminate cellulite. It’s fast and effective, painless and no downtime, and customers often see results after a single session although most will want over one for enhanced results.

What is the downtime?

This treatment does not require downtime. You can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

Are there any potential side effects?

No

How many treatments do I need to get the best results?

The results will be seen gradually in the coming weeks, and the best results will be achieved around 8 to 12 weeks. Areas can be treated several times for best results.

Treatment protocol

Pretreatment protocol: Avoid using any form of hair removal in the area to be treated for at least 3 days before treatment, such as hair removal, threading.

We recommend having MLD sessions 7 days before your treatment and then at least one other a few days beforehand. This process will help eliminate toxins and means that you have the most chances of getting significant results.

Drink a litre of water before treatment.

Please note that it is advisable to inform your doctor at least 7 days before each treatment if there are changes in your health or medication.

Cavitation — protocol after treatment.

It is common that the area appears red, possibly a little swollen or bruised (unusual) and sensitive for up to several days after treatment. The reality is you’re more likely to be red or pink for only a few hours afterwards.

Avoid warming up the treatment area while the skin remains sensitive. This includes physical activity, saunas, hot bath/shower, alcohol, etc. and/or the use of other treatments.

Increase water intake and exclude all stimulants throughout the rest of the day/night, such as caffeinated drinks.

A healthy diet combined with physical activity is necessary for treatment to be fully effective.

Avoid applying additional products on the area for at least 48 hours if it is sensitive in any way which includes cosmetics and skin care products other than professional products recommended by your doctor.

High frequency: Pretreatment protocol

Ideally leave at least 2 weeks after IPL skin rejuvenation, hair removal or superficial chemical peels (laser resurfacing or medium-depth chemical peeling require at least 4 weeks) or until the skin has returned to normal.

Avoid using sunbeds and self-tanning products for at least 7 days. Avoid using any form of hair removal in the area to be treated at least 3 days before treatment, such as waxing, touching etc.

Please note that it is advisable to inform your doctor at least 7 days before each treatment with a period of at least 7 days if there are changes in your health or medication.

High frequency protocol after treatment care

It is could happen that the area appears red, swollen and is sensitive for several hours, and up to 10 days after high frequency. Avoid heating the treatment area at least 48 hours after treatment or while the heat remains on the skin. This includes physical activity, saunas, hot bath/shower, alcohol, etc. and/or the use of other treatments.

Smoking will nullify the effects of high-frequency treatment. Avoid smoking during treatment. Increase water intake and exclude all stimulants throughout the rest of the day/night, such as caffeinated drinks.

Do not use a sun lounger or apply a self-tan to the area during treatment. Avoid applying additional products for at least 48 hours if the area remains sensitive. This includes cosmetics and skin care products other than professional products recommended by your doctor.
