We will always begin by making sure that you are a candidate for this treatment. We will have a consultation where we will look at your medical history and ensure that this treatment is going to work on you. It is important to note that ultrasound cavitation is not suitable for people who are obese. Instead, it has been designed for people that have certain parts of their body whereby they are hoping to reduce the appearance of fat.
You are also not going to be suitable for this treatment if you have issues with bleeding. Certain health conditions, like liver disease and heart disease, can rule you out as well. If you are pregnant or nursing, you also need to avoid ultrasound cavitation. Anyone who has medical implants in their body will typically not be able to have this treatment either. These include the likes of pacemakers and cochlear implants.
If you are unsure as to whether this treatment is going to be right for you, don’t worry. We will be able to assess the treatment area and your medical history and goals, and then make our recommendations. If we believe that ultrasound cavitation is not right for you, we can make our recommendations regarding other treatments that could be more suitable.
The consultation also gives you the opportunity to ask anything that you may wish to know about your treatment, side effects, post treatment care and more. If you are happy to proceed, you will need to sign a consent form. This is to confirm that you are happy with everything that we have told you and that you understand the procedure.
