Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound produces strong waves of pressure to fat cell membranes. A fat cell cannot withstand this pressure and therefore disintegrates into a liquid state. During the procedure the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, which primarily comprises triglycerides, is dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then transported through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver. The liver makes no distinction between ft coming from the 3D treatment and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed by the body’s natural mechanisms. Some is recycled back into the body, and some of taken out of the body in the urine and faeces.
- Price range £100 per treatment (6-8 treatments recommended)
- Best for: large areas such as abdomen, thighs and muffin top
This treatment is most suitable for treating larger areas of fat, such as the abdomen, things and muffin top. For larger bodies, we would recommend this treatment to bring in the waist before moving to fat freezing.
A course of 6-8 treatments is recommended to achieve maximum results, although your therapist will advise on the best treatment for you. The treatments can be taken weekly.
Results can be seen from the first treatment, with an average loss of 2-4cm per treatment. Results will be improved during each treatment.
Yes, this can be combined with Radio Frequency skin tightening to rescue the loose skin that may form as a result of excessive weight loss.
The majority of patients say that this is a comfortable and painless treatment as the device glides over the treated area. After the procedure, we will use the Shockwave device to breakdown the pockets of fat and this is more uncomfortable at times though is still very bearable. Bruising can be expected from using the Shockwave device.
