Yes, body contouring with ultrasonic cavitation can help you reduce fat cells and cellulite on your problem areas. VIVA Wellness clinic offers body contouring sessions as a non-invasive treatment to destroy bulk fat tissue. Ultrasonic cavitation is recognized as one of the most effective treatments to reduce cellulite and local fat loss available.
How does Body Contouring with Cavitation help me lose fat?
Ultrasonic (or ultrasound) cavitation is an FDA-approved, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasound waves to destroy and eliminate fat cells in targeted areas of the body. Individuals who may be trying to slim down or lose extra weight through a medical weight loss program often find problems areas of the body where fat is stored and difficult to lose. These areas include the belly, love handles, thighs, glutes, upper arms or bra line. Cavitation can be used to help reduce the fat cells in these areas without surgery.
It’s important to note that body contouring will destroy fat cells, but you will likely see little to no reduction in actual weight.
Is Body Contouring Safe?
The procedure is very safe and has minimal or no side effects. (Some clients may experience a bit of redness or bruising, loose skin or dimples in the skin as the body heals from the treatment.) Unlike surgical procedures like liposuction, a body contouring session can be scheduled on a lunch hour and you can return to work immediately afterward. In fact, you may see results within days after a single session. But, depending on your body-fat target area, you may need several sessions to get your desired results.
What happens during a Body Contouring with Cavitation Session?
Depending on your target area, you will be asked to lie on a treatment table with the area exposed. Your certified Cavitation specialist will first sterilize the treatment area. Then with a hand-held ultrasound device, she will slowly go over the area. The procedure is painless as the device creates low-frequency ultrasound waves that penetrate the skin. These ultrasound waves force fat cells to collapse and their free fatty acids are removed from the body through your lymphatic system and expelled through the normal functions of your body. Each session will take approximately 60 minutes.
Following your procedure, you will want to stay hydrated before and especially after to help your lymphatic system flush out the fat deposits throughout your body.
How long will my Body Contouring results last?
The treatment literally removes or destroys fat cells under your skin. So the results are permanent. However, you must still maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle so any remaining fat cells aren’t allowed to expand. Body contouring is not an all-over weight loss treatment and not for individuals who have a lot of fat to lose. This procedure is meant to help with problem areas or those who are within 15 pounds of their goal weight.
Is Body Contouring with Cavitation different than CoolSculpting?
Yes, though the expected results are the same. CoolSculpting (or cryolipolysis) uses the body’s natural response to cold temperatures to get rid of fat cells, while ultrasonic cavitation uses ultrasound frequencies. Both are perfectly safe and effective, however CoolSculpting is often much more expensive and treatment session take longer.
