Device FAQs

Is Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation a safe procedure?

Yes, it is a safe, comfortable, and non-invasive procedure with virtually no side effects. It does not require anesthesia, leaves no scars and does not require any post treatment. The ultrasound energy is designed to target fatty tissues beneath the skin only, and does not affect the blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues.

It is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or need post-operative course) and it allows for a full social life both before and after the sessions. This procedure is totally safe.

Is it FDA Approved?

Yes! Ultrasonic Cavitation is FDA Approved. 

How does Ultrasonic Cavitation work?

Cavitation is the use of low-frequency ultrasounds to penetrate the skin and cause fat cells to breakdown. The fat cells cannot withstand the pressure of these vibrations, causing the cells to implode into a liquid form and pass through the body.

How is it possible to remove solid fat through the lymphatic and urinary systems?


The Ultrasound Cavitation Non-Surgical “Liposuction” emulsifies fat and coverts solid fat into a liquid substance that is easy to remove through the lymphatic and urinary systems. Some of the melted fat will be used for energy and the rest will be excreted through the urine – that is why drinking water is essential. If you do not drink adequate water before and after each treatment, it will be harder for your system to remove the fat. You may notice an increase in urination after each session.

Is there an age limit?
Yes, you have to be 18 or older to try Ultrasonic Cavitation.
Is the procedure painful?
No, the treatment is painless. A slight tingling sensation or buzzing in the ear may sometimes be felt during the treatment. Some heat sensation may also be felt during treatment but no pain. Any slight reddening of the skin which may sometimes develop during or soon after treatment quickly disappears.
On which parts of the body is the treatment most beneficial?
Thighs (saddle bags), Abdomen (love handles), Hips (flanks), Buttock, Upper arm i.e. the areas of localized fat. However it cannot be applied to the head, chest, back and over bony areas.
Does it work on Cellulite?
Yes, low frequency ultrasound (40kHz) generally works well on cellulite by focusing the cavitation effect on the superficial fat tissue. Best results are obtained when the ultrasound is applied in conjunction with the radio frequency (RF) treatment which helps to tighten and tone the skin. Cellulite is the appearance of dimpled skin
Where are fat cells stored?
Fat is stored primarily as triglycerides inside adipocytes cells located between the muscles and skin. The numbers of fat cells are the same regardless of a persons weight but the size of the cells can vary greatly.
Where do the fat cells go?
Your body absorbs the fact and it passes through the liver and comes out as waste. The fat cells are broken down but the cells have the capacity to grow again with a high calorie diet. Thus, it is recommended to pair the treatment with one of Executive Medical’s weight loss programs.
Who is the ideal candidate for Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Patient should generally be fit and healthy and be within 10-15% of their ideal weight.
What instant result can I expect?
The ultrasonic cavitation treatment will often yield immediate results which you can feel, touch and see and it can be long lasting. Some clients can experience between 1 to 5 cm. of circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after subsequent visits. However, more significant results will be noticed after the second and third treatment.
How long is treatment?
The service is tailored to the individual. Generally however, most treatments are between 15 minutes to 75 minutes long. Multiple areas of the body can be treated during one session.
How many treatments can I have?
We recommend having at least six cavitation sessions. The more sessions the more results you will see. Treatments must be done at least 72 hours apart to ensure that the cells do not reabsorb the fat.
How long until I see results?
Most people will have a noticeable reduction in their measurements after the very first treatment! The fat removal process continues for up to one week following treatment, so it may decrease further a few days afterwards. Note that results may vary due to differences in metabolisms.
What long term results can I expect with ultrasonic cavitation?
You can achieve volume reduction of fatty tissues and toning of the body. The results are gradual over a number of weeks as your body clears the broken down fatty tissues. It is not uncommon to achieve up to 10 cm reduction by the end of the course of treatments. The results can be long lasting provided you follow a healthy diet and exercise program. However it is very easy to deposit fat again into the tissues if one over-eats, consumes too much alcohol or doesn’t exercise. Ultimately the result may vary depending on the individuals different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medication, and changes in hormones.
Can I lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Fat Cavitation is not a treatment for obesity nor is it a weight loss procedure. Rather is a method for reshaping and toning the body. It is particularly intended to reduce localized fat tissues which are resistant to exercise around the abdomen (love handles), buttocks, and thighs (saddle bags), that won’t easily go away by simple dieting and exercise.
Are there any side effects with this treatment?
There are virtually no side effects. However on rare occasions there may be a slight possibility of mild side effects such as transient redness, excessive thirst, or nausea immediately after the treatment which is invariably resolved by drinking water. These are all short-term effects that disappear in a few hours.
What Guidelines should I follow pre-treatment and, post treatment?

Drink plenty of water. Drinking water is a necessary part of the treatment to facilitate the elimination of the broken down fat. Maintain a low calorie diet for a few days after the treatment to ensure that the energy released by the treatment is metabolized by the body. After the treatment patients are able to return to their daily activities as usual.

 

 

You need to drink plenty of fluid preferably water before and after treatment and days afterwards. Other important aftercare considerations include:  
  • Again, Increase water intake.
  • Choose healthier, nutrient-rich foods.
  • Add daily exercise to tighten skin and lose any extra weight.
  • Avoid fatty foods.
  • Avoid alcohol.

Does the treatment require time off afterwards?
No! You can go right back into your daily routine. We do recommend that you increase your water intake to two liters (about six or eight cups) of water a day to help with fat removal.
What are the contraindications with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation treatment is not for everybody. Even though it is a safe and painless procedure, nevertheless there are contraindications for using cavitation devices for treatment of localized fat. Such contraindications will depend on the individuals medical history. Thus people with kidney failure, liver failure, heart disease, carrying a pacemaker, pregnancy, lactation, etc. are not suitable candidates for the cavitation treatment.
Are the results of ultrasonic cavitation similar to liposuction?
The ultrasonic cavitation can be considered as a treatment alternative to surgical liposuction. Both treatments are designed to reduce fatty tissues. However, Liposuction is invasive while Ultrasonic Cavitation is non-invasive.
Why is it called Ultrasound Cavitation Non-Surgical “Liposuction”?

The therapy uses low-level ultrasound to emulsify fat. Cavitation means the breaking down of the fatty tissue. Noninvasive, non-surgical “liposuction” means the fat will be removed in a natural fashion through the lymphatic and urinary systems at the pace your body will decide it can tolerate.

Is Ultrasonic Cavitation for everyone?
There are contraindications for using cavitation devices for treatment of localized fat. You are NOT  a good candidate if you are pregnant or nursing, if you have large metal implants near the treatment area, or if you have any serious medical condition such as uncontrolled diabetes or high blood pressure, heart disease, liver or kidney failure, epilepsy, pacemaker or other electronic devices, etc.Ultrasonic Cavitation is not for people with heart disease, kidney failure, or liver failure. It is not for those who are pregnant, and you must wait a minimum of three months after childbirth, or at least six months after C section. Getting GP approval is recommended post childbirth if you would like to try Ultrasonic Cavitation.
