Frequently Asked Questions

What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?

Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low-frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound field creates bubbles in the liquid that surround the fat cells, which gradually grow, and implode. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of cavitation easily breaks them, without harming the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue.

 

What happens to the released fat?

After disruption and emulsification of the fat cells, liquid which makes up the fat cells, in the form of triglycerides, is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells. This fluid is then metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the energy source, whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food.

 

The fat is a solid substance, how can it be eliminated through the urine?

Ultrasonic cavitation causes an emulsification of the fat, releasing the triglyceride fluid which is easy to eliminate through the urine and the lymphatic system.

 

Is Ultrasonic Cavitation a safe treatment?

Yes, the therapist will complete a medical questionnaire with you to make sure it is safe for you to undergo this kind of treatment. It is a nonsurgical procedure without anaesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or need post-operative treatment) and it allows for a full social life both before and after the sessions. As there are many clinics offering Ultrasonic Cavitation using old technology and ineffective protocols, many people have not seen the promised results. At You Made Anew Pty. Ltd. we use cutting edge Ultrasonic Cavitation Technology protocols, delivering the promised results.

 

How long has Ultrasonic Cavitation been around?

Cavitation in aesthetics was introduced for the first time in Milan in 2005. However, the phenomenon called cavitation has been around since the 1960’s.

 

Is Ultrasonic Cavitation painful?

No, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but does not cause pain. The heat caused by the equipment is perfectly tolerable.

 

Can these treatments be performed on men and women?

Yes, of course.

 

Which are the areas where treatment is more effective?

All those areas with localized fat: thighs, abdomen and buttocks are the most appropriate, but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body although we cannot treat the female breast.

 

Is it possible to lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?

Ultrasonic cavitation is not a method to lose weight but rather to shape the body. The treatment is used to reduce stubborn fatty pockets that just won’t go away with diet and exercise. However, any fat in the body has weight, so if eliminated, will no longer be part of your body weight.

 

Are the results of Ultrasonic Cavitation similar to those of liposuction?

Yes, but only because it destroys fat cells permanently without damaging any vascular, nervous and muscular tissue. However, it is a completely natural process of allowing the body to breakdown its own fat.

 

Must you follow any guidelines before or after undergoing Ultrasonic Cavitation?

Your trained BSE therapist will recommend a few simple things to assist you in achieving the best result from your treatment, i.e. to drink at least 2 litres of water before and after the session and hydrate with at least 2 litres of fluid per day for the three days after treatment. After the session, you will be required to do a small amount of cardio (brisk walk/jog/vibration platform). Your trained BSE therapist will recommend all that is necessary to optimize your results.

 

How many sessions are usually needed?

Although you will see an impressive result after one session, how many sessions, will be dependent on what you would like to reshape and your quantity and fat density. This will be discussed with you during your consultation.

 

Does it work on cellulite?

Yes, low-frequency ultrasound and infrared generally works on cellulite by focusing on “cavitation effect” on the fat tissue.

 

Will there be scarring?

No, as there are no needles or cutting of the skin.
