3D-Cavitation

Best for

Overall fat reduction.

Tech explained

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 cannot withstand this pressure and therefore disintegrates into a liquid state.

What happens to the released fat?

During the 3D-cavitation treatment, the membranes of the fat cells are disrupted. The fat cell content, primarily comprised of 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 fat coming from the 3D-cavitation treatment and fat originating from consumed food. Both are processed by the body’s natural mechanisms.

What areas can be improved with 3D-cavitation?
3D-cavitation is best for treating larger areas of fat such as the abdomen, thighs and ‘muffin top’.

How many treatments are recommended?
A course of 6-8 treatments are recommended to achieve optimum results although your therapist will advise the best treatment plan for you.

 

What Results Can I Expect from this treatment?
Results can be seen from treatment one, with an average loss of 2-4cm per treatment. Results will be improved during each treatment.

Can I combine 3D-cavitation with other treatments?
Yes, 3D-cavitation can often be combined with other treatments depending on what you are looking to achieve. A therapist will devise a tailored treatment program which may incorporate the addition of other technologies.

What will I experience during treatment?
The size of the treatment area determines the duration of the session. During treatment, a handheld device delivering ultrasound energy gently glides over the marked area. The majority of treated patients consistently report a painless and comfortable experience.
