What is fat cavitation?
Fat Cavitation sculpts your figure and enhances your silhouette by reducing stubborn pockets of fat without the need for invasive surgery such as liposuction.
Cavitation is a medically-established scientific principle that works by applying ultrasound energy/sound waves to the targeted area of fat cells, converting the fat to a liquid state. The fatty acids are then dispersed and processed through the lymphatic/urine system - your body’s natural filtration system. Cavitation is specially designed to treat only the targeted fatty areas and not affect surrounding tissue.
What is RF Skin Tightening?
Radio frequency (RF) treatment is a non-surgical means of reshaping of the body and the face from beneath the superficial layer of the skin. This method uses sophisticated devices specifically designed to treat your most common skin aging problems like wrinkles, excess fatty tissues, or cellulite. This method utilises radio frequency waves, which is a form of heat energy meant for tissue remodelling and production of elastin and new collagen.
Radio frequency is different than most invasive procedures, which only affect the most superficial layers of the skin. Heat is a stimulation that promotes contraction of the underlying tissues, especially at the dermis level. Soft tissues found within that area of the body compress, realign, and even produce new collagen, a process that normally takes many months to complete. This allows radio frequency to have consistently effective and amazing results when it comes to skin tightening.
What is the perfect candidate for your treatments?
We have a list of contradictions on our website, but the following is a perfect candidate that should expect to see great results:
-Generally overall healthy person
-Not on certain medications for certain illnesses (please check our “Before Booking” Section on our website)
-Eats and exercises reasonably well
-Has stubborn pockets of fat that are hard to get rid of with exercise
-Has loose skin after loosing weight, carrying children or general skin elasticity loss
Is it safe?
Yes, our treatments are safe! Once the treatment is complete, the body naturally completes the rest of the process. Our treatments are nonsurgical and don’t need anaesthesia. It is non-invasive therefore there is no cutting, leaves no scars and has no downtime.
What is RF and is it safe?
RF Skin tightening has been been around since the 2000's (nearly 20 years!) and is proven to work and be safe.
It works off a very very low frequency which helps heat up the layers of the skin to help them contract, to help promote cell turnover and collagen in the skin - in turn helps tighten and tone the skin and help with fine lines and wrinkles.
Radio frequency is a type of energy which is measured by "frequency" or wavelengths per second.
Everything that produces energy is measured and classified with their own frequency (e.g.. Phones, radio, TV, the sun and even our bodies)
Skin Tightening is approx 400-450 Kilohertz which is on the very low end of the radio frequency range.
To put it in perspective, the wavelength used for our Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is about 100 million times slower than visible light
Which areas can be treated?
You can treat nearly any area of the body with localised fat pockets and looser skin. Some popular areas are the Lower Tummy, Love Handles, Thighs, Upper Arms, Back/Bra Line, Knees and Buttocks, but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body which can be treated.
Do the treatments hurt?
No, there is absolutely no pain in our treatments, our clients say the treatment are very comfortable and some even fall asleep during the RF Skin tightening treatment. Some clients may feel slight discomfort due to the specific noise that can be heard, but causes absolutely no harm or pain.
Some clients may feel a slight tingling sensation or a comfortable warmth during treatment.
How far apart should sessions be booked in for?
The body eliminates the fat after each session in approximately 3 – 6 days, so we recommend an interval of around one week between each session for the best and fastest results.
What causes skin to sag and loosen?
Sagging and the loosening of skin occurs because collagen, the structural support of your skin, diminishes over time. Collagen loss also significantly contributes toward volume loss and wrinkle formation
How long does RF Skin tightening last for?
Each client is different, but each treatment of RF Skin tightening can last up to 6 months
Will the fat come back after Fat Cavitation?
The removal of the liquid content consisting of fatty acids and glycerol allow fat cells to decrease in size. Therefore, an individual’s excessive calorie intake could cause the cells to increase in size once again. It is therefore important to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
How long until I see results?
It is important to remember that everyone is different and your body will work according to your unique metabolism. Some clients exceed expectations and some take a little longer. You will see reduction during a course of treatments, which is why we recommend not to just do a few sessions, if you wish to obtain great results.
How long after C-Section am I able to have treatment on my tummy?
Please allow at least approx. 4 months post operation in that area. The body needs time to heal and adjust. Treatment too early can create more swelling and poorer results. A doctors clearance is highly recommended before starting treatments.
Is there anything I should be doing before and after treatments?
We recommend a low calorie, sugar and alcohol free diet, and to drink at least 1.5 - 2 litres of water 24 hours before and 48 hours after each session. Drinking water is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat. Regular exercise such as walking or other aerobic activities should also be maintained in order to help the system to naturally process and eliminate the fat after the treatment.
