What is Ultrasound Cavitation?

Cavitation is body sculpting with no anaesthesia, no scars, no discomfort, no downtime and presents a risk free alternative to liposuction.

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 membrane cannot withstand this pressure and therefore disintegrates into a liquid state. The result is natural fat loss.

What is Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing)?

Cryolipolysis selectively targets the water content of the fat cell. A temperature of -6 degrees is applied to the area of concern and maintained for a pre-determined time period to damage the fat cells. The damaged fat cells begin a natural removal process that continues for up to 3 months.

Which fat removal treatment is for me?

Depending on the individuals goals and size determines which technology described above would be used. No other treatment combines these two advanced functions and in most cases both Cryolipolysis and Cavitation will be used in combination over a course of treatment in order to maximise the results achieved.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

For many clients fat reduction is only part of their concern. There is also the desire to improve the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin in specific areas of the body.

3D-lipo’s 3 dimensional approach to the problem ensures that not only will you experience fat reduction and cellulite improvement from Cavitation but with the addition of Radio Frequency we are also able to add targeted skin tightening.

How does Radio Frequency work?

As our skin matures and is continuously subjected to environmental effects, its connective tissue begins to break down, causing wrinkles and other signs of ageing to develop.

The Focus Fractional RF energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matric where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of collagen fibres and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblasts thereby accelerating the production of new collagen and elastin fibres.

The concentration of collagen fibres and the regeneration of the collagen and elastin deposits, tighten the skin layers creating a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.

If you are unsure of what treatment is best for you then take a look at the guide below and see which client you are closest too…

Client One

A younger healthy client, no loose skin, but has pockets of fat in stubborn areas. Cryolipolysis would be the best treatment for this client, placed on each pocket of fat for 45 minutes.

Client Two

Excess fat in a few areas. Concentrate on treating one problem area first (ie abdomen). This client has approximately 3cm of fat so cavitation would be beneficial. A course of 8 treatments recommended with treatments 1x weekly. This client may need radio frequency skin tightening and 3D dermology as part of her course.

Client Three

Mature client, not much fat on the area but has loose skin. Radio Frequency would be suitable for this client on a course of 8 treatments 1x weekly. 3D dermology can be included to aid lymph drainage and increase blood circulation to the skin.

Client Four

Thicker fatty layer plus stubborn pockets of fat. This would be best treated by a combination course of cavitation, cryolipolysis and vacuum rolling. This course would consist of 8 treatments. Treatment 1 – Cavitation and 3D dermology. Treatment 2 – Cryolipolysis on the pockets of fat, and then treatments 3-8 being cavitation and 3D dermology.

Client Five

Male client with large abdomen. Cavitation is recommended, with a course of 8 treatments 1x weekly. 3D dermology could also be beneficial to aid drainage.

Client Six

Loose skin on the tummy with a small layer of fatty tissue. An 8 treatment course consisting of 3D dermology and radio frequency would be recommended with treatments 1x weekly.

Client Seven

Mature client with cellulite and loose skin on legs, but not much fatty tissue. Recommended treatment would be radio frequency to help tighten the skin and 3D dermology for increased lymphatic drainage and improved smoothness of the skin. Two courses of 8 treatments 1x weekly would be recommended to treat both the front and backs of the legs.
