Fat Cavitation uses ultrasound technology consisting of low-level frequencies that transmit into the skin and cause a biological phenomenon, the formation of bubbles in between the fat cells. This creates a shock wave that selectively damages the membranes of the adipocytes (fat cells). After the breakdown of adipose tissue (fat cell membrane), the liquid fat is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where it is enzymatically metabolised to glycerol and free fatty acids.
Water-soluble glycerol travels into the circulatory system and is used for new energy generation. The insoluble free fatty acids enter the liver where they are decomposed like any other simple fatty acid and excreted as waste (urine). It is scientifically proven that after a cavitation session, excess fat liquid are drained from that body via the urinary system and no damage is caused to the surrounding organs or tissues.
There will also be an increased production of diuresis (the production of urine by the kidneys) in the hours following the treatment session, and this continues into the next day as the body metabolises the excess liquid caused by the fat cells. Some clients do have an urge to use the toilet straight after treatment, this is normal and is the result of the fat cells leaving the body. As the urine becomes more acidity, the smell and colour of the urine may be observed right after the treatment session, this is very apparent for those clients that have a higher percentage of body fat. This treatment is fabulous for mild cellulite treatment for a smoother appearance.
Fat Cavitation can be paired with Cryolipolysis to remove a greater percentage of fat cells & smooth more severe cellulite. RF Skin Tightening can also be used to tighten, firm, lift & tone after the desired result is achieved.
