Frequently Asked Questions
What Happens to the Released Fat?
Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound creates bubbles & vibrations in the fat cells. As the membranes of the fat cells are too weak to withstand these vibrations, the effect is broken fat cells turning to liquid (only while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue.)
The broken fat is picked up by the lymphatic system and then transported to the liver and processed the same way as food. Then it is excreted through the urinary system.
Translated: The body uses some of the liquidised fat as energy and you excrete out the rest! Simple.
What Happens When I Come In For A Treatment?
The cavitation treatment does not require any special pre-treatment, just drink a lot of water before your appointment and continue to drink water afterwards to help ‘flush’ your system.
It starts with a circumference measurement of the target body area, continues with small movements of the applicator over the treatment site, and is finalized with another circumference measurement. We measure at your very first treatment, mid way through your course then at the end of the course, with many satisfied clients moving to other body areas.
The duration of treatment session can vary from 20 to 90 minutes depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer.
6 to 10 sessions are average, having them at 1 – 2 week intervals are recommended (varies per individual) in order to achieve a notable result, but further treatments may be needed to attain your desired silhouette.
Obviously the larger we are, the more treatments that are needed to destroy the fat cells. There are Fat Cavitation memberships available for those wanting to pursue many treatments or body areas.
The treatment is 100% painless..really?
YES! Most of our clients consider the procedure painless, comfortable and they even have a little snooze whilst we perform the treatment. Even though we talk about ‘exploding fat cells’ in step 1 (ultrasound) you feel absolutely nothing! Nothing at all. You will experience a soothing warmth during the RF treatment in step 2.
Can I Expect Any Side Effects?
Consuming water before and after your treatments will flush your body of fats and toxins. Be sure to discuss your medical history honestly and all medications to ensure you are in-fact suitable for the treatment. Your medical history is completely confidential and is needed to determine the best prescription of treatments and your overall compatibility.
What are the Expected ‘Instant Fat Loss’ Results?
The cavitation treatment yields immediate and long lasting results. Most clients experience 2 to 10 cm of circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after each visit. The results may vary with different tissue and structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. Now you can fit into your clothes better!
It is PERMANENT destruction of the fat cells…it is up to your diet & lifestyle to do the rest. This is NOT a fluid loss treatment. It IS a fat loss treatment.
What is the advantage of Fat Cav over diet and exercise alone?
With a balanced diet and exercise, you can reduce non-specific weight. Fat Cav directly affects your problem area, where diet and exercise alone is not working. Our Fat Blaster is the solution to selectively remove stubborn fat deposits, thus- giving you a better body contour and better fitting clothes. It is not for replacing a balanced diet or exercise at all. The amazing results have been known to encourage a better diet and exercise regime where it has previously been lacking.
What kind of care is required after the treatment?
There is no special care required and ABSOLUTELY no downtime. You can leave your appointment & immediately return to your daily routine or work. You should not have any pain or discomfort after the treatment. It is recommended to maintain adequate hydration before and after the treatment. See the below do and don’t list.
**The more hydrated you are – The better the result. Maximise YOUR own results by being well hydrated for 12-24 hours leading up to your appointment.
DO stay well hydrated – at least 8 glasses of water a day.
DO stay active, 20 – 40 minutes of moderate exercise 3-4 times a week, & after every cav session a 30 minute walk is required to burn off released energy.
DO eat a well-balanced diet with lots of fruit and vegetables.
DO LIMIT alcohol intake for 72 hours before and after a fat cav session (the triglycerides are processed through the liver therefore alcohol intake may reduce the effects of the treatment).
DO LIMIT complex carbohydrates for 72 hours before and after cav sessions (breads, pasta, sugars).
DO LIMIT fatty foods of all kinds.
DON’T let the sessions replace a balanced diet and regular exercise.
