What You Need To Know About Cavi-Lipo

Answer

Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound field creates bubbles in the fat cells, which gradually grow and implode at a certain size. The energy in the form of a heat and pressure wave is released. Because the fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of cavitation easily breaks them, while not affecting the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue. The result is instant fat loss.

Answer

NO, ultrasound cavitation is a painless treatment. The patient will hear a light vibration, “ringing”, during the process. Treatments are quite relaxing and are similar to getting a warm stone message.

Answer

YES, Cavi-Lipo is FDA approved to be safe and effective. It is a nonsurgical procedure without anaesthesia. It is noninvasive and there is no downtime after the treatment. You can go right back to your regular routine.

Answer

Common areas to get the treatment on include: thighs, abdomen, buttocks, arms, back fat, and double chins. However there is no real limitation as to areas of the body that can be treated.

Answer

For best results, 3 to 6 treatments are recommended, however as little as 1 treatment and as many as 12 treatments can be done per area. Treatments can be done every 2-10 days.

Answer

Treatment times may vary depending on the area being treated but a typical session will last between 45 minutes to an hour. This includes a consult, the preparation, measurements, pictures (optional), treatment, post lymphatic massage and Cavi-Lipo education.

Answer

YES, low frequency ultrasound (25kHz) generally works well on cellulite by focusing the ‘cavitation effect’ on the superficial fat tissue. Cellulite is the appearance of dimpled skin.

Answer

The Cavi-Lipo treatment yields immediate and long lasting results. Most clients experience a loss of 1/2" or more after a single session with increasing results after each visit. Proper diet and increased physical activity will improve your results and help to maintain the loss of inches. Results may vary with different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones.

Answer

You can achieve ‘volume reduction’ of fatty tissues. The results are gradual over a number of weeks as your body clears the broken down fatty tissues. The results can be long lasting provided you follow a healthy diet and exercise program. However it is easy to deposit fat again into the tissues if you over-eat, consume too much alcohol or don’t exercise. Ultimately the result may vary depending on the individual’s different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medication, and changes in hormones.

Answer

The body moves the liquefied fat through your lymphatic system and it gets eliminated as waste. Your body eliminates the fat of a single session in approximately 3-4 days, so we recommend an interval of at least 48 hours between each session.

Answer

The Cavi-Lipo can be considered as a treatment alternative to surgical liposuction. Both treatments are designed to reduce fatty tissues. However, Liposuction is ‘invasive’ while Cavi-Lipo is 'non-invasive'.

Answer

No. Cavi-Lipo removes layers of fat a little at a time. If you gain weight you will gain it proportionally and you will not look unbalanced. Whereas liposuction procedures remove all of the fat from an area and may cause you to look disproportional if you gain weight.

Answer

Fat Cavitation is not a treatment for obesity nor is it a weight loss procedure. Rather it is a method for ‘reshaping’ and ‘toning’ the body. It is particularly intended to reduce localized fat tissues which are resistant to exercise around the abdomen (love handles), buttocks and thighs (saddle bags), that won’t go away easily simply by dieting and exercise.

Answer

  • Drink plenty of water before and after treatment for maximum elimination of fat cells & toxins
  • Minimize the intake of carbohydrates and fat 24 hours before and after treatment
  • Immediately after treatment take a walk, engage in light exercise or receive a massage
  • Follow a healthy diet and exercise plan.
