Questions and Answers
What is Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasound Cavitation is a relatively new aesthetic treatment. Using leading edge technology it converts fat cells into a liquid which then can be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system through the urinary tract and lymphatic system.
These procedures are being compared to liposuction but without any surgical procedures. Ultrasound Cavitation is the most advanced and effective non-invasive European method for eliminating stubborn cellulite and fat. Because of these characteristics, aesthetic experts have named it “Natural Liposuction”. In the technique uses low frequency ultrasound waves that deplete stubborn fat cells under the skin. Ultrasonic Cavitation is the fastest non-surgical type of liposuction which is growing rapidly worldwide.
What are Ultrasound Waves: We measure sound by the times which vibrates per second. This is referred to as an frequency, which is represented in Hertz (Hz). Humans can hear from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hx or 20 KHz. We are unable to hear anything above or below these levels, therefore sound waves with frequencies above 20,000 Hz we call Ultrasonic. A Megahertz (MHz) is 1,000,000 hertz. Usually an Ultrasonic frequency of 1 to 5MHz is used for various medical treatments. It is highly penetrative and directional.
Cavitation’s Theory: he ultrasound waves are conducted through the skin, directly penetrate into the fat tissue and vibrations of ion (positive and negative alternation of sound waves) produce a strong wave of pressure to the fat cell’s membranes. Usually a fat cell’s membrane cannot withstand this pressure, and will implode into liquid content and break up into small pieces causing micro-bubbles which turn fat into a liquid substance (this phenomena is called “Cavitation”). The liquid is then eliminated from the body by using the normal channels of the body’s metabolism, lymphatic and urinary system. When you work out, you have to wait until half an hour for the Cavitation to happen, but with an Ultrasound, it reaches from the first minute of treatment.
This Revolutionary Ultrasonic Cavitations technology concentrates sonic energy is directed only at localized treatment areas, and, thus, capable of selectively disrupting the subcutaneous fat cells through thousands of microscopic implosions impacting the fat cell’s membranes. After a breakdown of the fat cell’s membrane, the fat is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where they are enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water-soluble glycerol travels into the circulatory system using for new energy generation whereas the insoluble free fatty acids enter the liver where they are decomposed like any other simple fatty acid. The released fat is then eliminated from the liver through the lymphatic system and by the normal metabolic and physiological processes, leaving the body through sweat and urine over several days.
The Ultrasonic device uses a specialized transducer that emits regulated Ultrasonic sound beams that delivers real-time acoustic waves into patients. Specific ultrasound options use multi-directional waves to guarantee the wave lengths and energy claims will only affect and target fatty areas. Only adipose (fat) tissues should be susceptible to this configuration and non-adipose tissues should remain safe and negligibly affected. The device has internal controls to target the Ultrasonic waves at the patient's fat cells.
What is Radiofrequency? (RF)
Bipolar Radiofrequency (RF) energy is technology for non-surgical tightening the sagging skin. RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity. RF is often used in conjunction with ultrasound Cavitation to aid in further fat breakdown and also to tighten the skin in the same area where the Cavitation treatment has taken place.
How does Bipolar Radiofrequency work – RF? The hand piece is slowly rotated over the target area transmitting radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis, heating the dermis to between 40 & 50 degrees Celsius without burning the skin surface. Tissue Retraction: The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibers to immediately tighten the skin. New collagen formation: By heating the dermis, new collagen production is stimulated. This tightening effect is delayed and may take from 3-6 months to be visible. RF will also improve the blood and lymphatic flow. This procedure helps with a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance.
How many sessions do I need and how often can I come?
The treatment doesn’t usually show an immediate change, it depends on the body structure and metabolism. We recommend a one session per 4-5 days and not less than 6 to 15 sessions depending on the individual's desired results. A session lasts 45minutes (15 minutes of effective ultrasound and 15 minutes of RF and also 15 minutes by LED pads) depending on the patient’s body and the treated area. The interval between each session on average is every form 3 to 4 days.
After the initial treatments are completed, maintenance treatments consist of 1 session each month for 4 months followed by one treatment every 4 months. Ask for our 6-15 session discount package programs.
Who would benefit from this treatment?
This treatment is best suited for the average to moderately overweight person who has a healthy lifestyle and exercises regularly. We want people to know exactly what to expect from a LIPOFLUSH session. Let us be clear this is not a miracle device that will strip away huge layers of built up fat in a single session. LIPOFLUSH is NOT for OBESE or SERIOUSLY OVERWEIGHT PEOPLE; and it is not practical or economical to use it as such. Instead, it is for those who have isolated areas of extra fat that are not helped by diet and exercise. But it is perfect for person who has no desire for surgery, and is looking for modest reductions in key problem areas.
If you’re a man or woman who can’t eliminate those stubborn bulges through healthy exercise and diet, and don’t want to undergo surgery (liposuction), then this non-surgical fat reduction technique may be for you.
Areas targeted for LIPOFLUSH such as are: Abdomen and Flanks (“love handles”), Thighs (“saddle bags”) and Buttocks, also Upper Arm and Inner knees and Male Breasts.
Recommendations for Successful Results:
- Drink at least 2.0 liters of water daily, especially the day before and on the treatment day;
- Bring a water bottle with you and drink ample (the amounts of 1 liter before and 1 liter after) each treatment, because it makes you thirsty;
- Keep a balanced diet;
- After the treatment, exercise with at least a 30 minute brisk walk;
- Exercise as much as possible before and after treatment - If you do not currently exercise, start within 15 minutes of fast walking per day and increase it by 10 minutes per day. Exercise makes your lymphatic system function better;
- We like to remind our customers that this is not an alternative to eating a healthy diet and exercising. This is a supplementary treatment that we believe can enhance your physique and help with your fat loss goals;
- Consider avoiding alcohol and caffeine, which competes with your liver.
What Results Can I Expect from my Treatment, and How Soon Will I See My Results?
Results can sometimes be noticed after the first/two treatment with more improvement noticed within a few days. In our experience with LIPOFLUSH we have found we can safely remove enough fat from a concentrated area, that it can easily be marked by using a measuring tape. One week of a good diet and an exercise would deliver a measurable reduction that is not necessarily noticeable. Please don't expect that after one session, like just one week of good diet and exercise make you appear slimmer.
You can either expect mild, moderate or dramatic inch loss. A series of measurements are made to the patient at the beginning and in the end of the session, to monitor the progress of the treatment. You can reduce up to 6 inches per area within 6 to 15 sessions.
Although we believe that LIPOFLUSH is a more permanent form of weight loss (because we destroy the cells in which the fat reside), we still encourage our clients to eat healthily and to exercise regularly. Thus, in conjunction with LIPOFLUSH you should see how you slimmer and feeling great you look!
How much does a treatment cost?
Similar to other slimming techniques, LIPOFLUSH is a progressive fat elimination process. To get the best results, recommend number of treatments should be taken from 6 to 12. Treatment requires special equipment and administration by a trained practitioner. The total cost of your procedure will vary depending upon the number of the body areas treated and the total number of sessions required to achieve your desired results.
