What is Cavitation?
Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound produces a strong wave of pressure to fat cell membranes. A fat cell membrane cannot withstand this pressure and therefore disintegrates into a liquid state. The result is natural, permanent fat loss.
What happens to the released fat?
After disruption of adipos’s cellular membrane the fat in the form of triglycerides is released into the interstitial space between the cells, where they are enzymatically metabolised to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the engery source where as the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food.
This treatment is painfree and provides instant results although a course is recommended for optimal results. A cavitation head is gently massaged over the area in small sections. Each area is treated for 5 minutes. The length of treatment will depend on the area being treated and if cavitation is being suggested in conjuction with our other procedures (ie Radio Frequency, etc.). Most treatments take 45-60 minutes.
