What Is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a simple, noninvasive procedure procedure that uses sound waves to flush fat from the body to encourage weight loss without surgery.
How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?
During an ultrasonic cavitation procedure, deposits of body fat are targeted with low-frequency (ultrasonic) sound waves. These sound waves heat and vibrate the fat cells beneath your skin, causing the contents of those fat cells to liquefy and empty into the bloodstream where it is then processed as waste by your body’s lymphatic system.
How Much Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Cost?
The cost of ultrasonic cavitation treatment depends on the treatment area you plan to target. Most treatments cost between $250 and $350 per session.
Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?
Yes! However, results may very depending on your health history and body type. Some patients experience more dramatic results than others or more long-lasting results than others.
What Results Can I Expect?
As we mentioned, results vary depending on the patient. However, in most cases, you can expect to see these significant changes in the targeted area:
- Tighter skin
- Reduced cellulite
- Reduced circumference of the treated area
- An overall contoured appearance
Ultrasonic cavitation is not invasive, and you will not experience any downtime.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Some patients will see results after just one session, but we recommend between eight and 12 sessions for optimal results. The number of sessions you’ll need to achieve the results you want will depend on several factors, including age, weight, and target area.
How Often Should I Be Treated To See Results?
We don’t recommend scheduling more than two treatments per week.
How Long Do Ultrasonic Cavitation Results Last?
One thing to remember is that ultrasonic cavitation does not destroy fat cells, but rather empties them of their contents. This means that those cells can fill with fat again, and that a balanced diet is the best possible way to ensure lasting results.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
What Is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?
Radio frequency procedures uses radio waves – a long, slow frequency of electromagnetic energy – to tighten skin. The energy used is about 450 kilohertz, which is 100 million times slower than visible light and 1 billion times slower than an X-ray. As gentle as it is, radio frequency energy can still be used to heat and reduce fat. Current radio frequency procedures include skin tightening for various areas of the body, wrinkle reduction, and body contouring.
How Do Radio Frequency Treatments Work?
During your treatment, a special device with transmit radio frequency waves to the target the subcutaneous tissue of your treatment area. This gentle electromagnetic energy produces heat, which encourages collagen production and cell turnover. Collagen production, triggered by radio waves, can remove wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars, and restore skin elasticity and glow.
What Are the Advantages of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?
Radio frequency procedures, including skin tightening, are non-surgical and noninvasive. There is no pain or discomfort, just a gentle buzzing you may feel in your ears. The experience is comfortable and there is no downtime.
How Much Does Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Cost?
The cost of a radio frequency treatment depends on the treatment area, but procedures typically cost $250 to $500.
What Are Possible Risks and Side Effects of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?
If used improperly, radio frequency treatment may cause indents in the skin surface caused by uneven healing. Because radio frequency skin tightening is simple and noninvasive, side effects are minimal and temporary. You may experience mild swelling, redness, and tingling, but all side effects should fade after 36 hours.
Is Radio Frequency Safe?
The FDA has cleared non-surgical radio frequency procedures for skin tightening with strict safety regulations. Clinical studies have shown that radio frequency procedures have an excellent safety record for several different kind of treatments, including facial skin tightening and body contouring.
Exposure to radio waves in high doses can lead to injury or harm, but if you are a good candidate for the procedure, it is performed correctly, and you follow our recommendations, you should not be at risk for harm. Your radio frequency treatment practitioner will monitor and control the device throughout the procedure to ensure you get the best possible results without negative side effects.
