Cavitation Ultrasound, or "Non-surgical Liposuction" was introduced for the first time in Milan, Italy in 2005 under the Italian name "Cavitazione Estetica," though the physical phenomenon referred to as "cavitation" has been well known since the 1960s. Cavitation Ultrasound has been used throughout Europe since 2005 and has gained popularity for a variety of reasons, but primarily because of its safety. Cavitation Ultrasound does not carry the risk of pain and side effects that surgical liposuction does. There is also no disruption to your life or schedule due to "recovery time." It is also much less costly than surgical liposuction.
So why is it called Cavitation Ultrasound "Non-surgical Liposuction?" Cavitation means the breaking down of the fatty tissue. The therapy uses low level ultrasound to emulsify fat. The lower the frequency, the stronger the treatment. Once that fat is broken down, the fat will be removed in a natural, non-surgical fashion through the lymphatic and urinary systems at the pace your body will decide it can tolerate. Because the treatment results in the removal of fat from the body, it is commonly referred to as "non-surgical liposuction."
For best results, and because the proper function of the lymphatic and urinary systems are required for the removal of the fat cells from the body, Body BeneFits recommends a few, easy-to-follow guidelines to aide in the success of your Cavitation Ultrasound treatments:
HYDRATION: Drinking water is essential in order to eliminate the wastes and toxins your body will ridding itself of. We recommend drinking at least 1.5 - 2 liters of water on the days before and after the session, in addition to always getting plenty of water on a regular basis. If you are already following a weight loss program we recommend you continue with your present plan.
ALCOHOL: Alcohol can prevent your liver from working to remove fats, as it will make alcohol metabolism its priority before fat removal, and could hinder your results. To achieve the best results, it is recommended to refrain from any alcohol consumption for 2 – 3 days following your treatments.
Finally, it is recommended to refrain from tanning during your treatment program. If you must tan, please do not do so for at least three days prior to your Cavitation Ultrasound & RF sessions. Tanning may cause your skin to become overly sensitive to the Ultrasound and RF frequencies. Ask us about our Infinity Sun, state-of-the-art airbrush spray tanning.
