Is Ultrasound Cavitation Treatment Right For Me?

At Omniya Clinic in London

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.

Ultrasound Cavitation Treatment Information

Pre-Treatment Advice

Before your appointment for ultrasound cavitation, it is important to ensure that your body is properly nourished and hydrated. We would advise patients to drink a minimum of two litres of water and make sure you only consume healthy foods within the 24 hours before your treatment. It is also recommended to dry body brush and moisturise your skin so that the detoxification process can be jump started.

Post-Treatment Advice

Once you have had ultrasound cavitation, it is a good idea to have 20 minutes exercise after your treatment. This will elevate your heart rate. You can do this straight after you have had your treatment, and it is best to keep this up for the three days following. This is important because it makes sure that the stored energy that has been released by the cavitation procedure is then burnt off. There are lots of great cardio workouts available today, so why not look for a good at-home workout you can try? You also need to make sure that you consume a minimum of 2 litres of water within the 24-hour period following the treatment. Continue to engage in regular exercise, moisturise, and dry brush so that your circulation is kept strong. Also, think about other detox methods to keep up the results, for example, sauna sessions or massages.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

When you book an appointment with Omniya, we will always have a consultation with you first. This gives us the opportunity to look at your medical records. We will also be able to assess the treatment area and we can make our recommendations regarding the best solution for you in terms of treatment and the number of treatments we believe you will need. Most of the time, between eight and 12 sessions are going to be required for the best results. However, there are a number of different factors that are going to determine this. This includes the area being treated, your weight, and your age. This is something that we will discuss with you in full.

In terms of how long you need to wait before you have your next ultrasound cavitation, we definitely recommend that you wait at least a week. The reason for this is because your body is going to need three days in order to eliminate toxins and fats after your treatment.

How Long Will Results Last?

With ultrasound cavitation, the fat cells are not destroyed. Instead, the contents of the fat cells are emptied. This means that the cells could store fat again in the future. This is why it is imperative to maintain a balanced diet so that the results will last for as long as possible. The results of the treatment will start to decrease over time if you are consuming far more calories than you are burning.

Is It A Safe Procedure?

Ultrasound cavitation is considered a safe treatment. You ought not to experience any pain during the treatment, although you may feel some sensations whilst it is taking place. Once the fat has been released, some patients do feel a little bit warmer and sometimes slightly unwell afterward. This is because of the detoxification of the body and the release of thermal energy.

Even though ultrasound cavitation is highly effective, it is still important to eat a healthy diet that is high in fibre. Drinking water can also assist the liver in terms of fat metabolisation, which will help to make the treatment as successful as possible. Furthermore, exercise and eating right will help to minimise the number of treatments you need in the future.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Side effects are very rare when it comes to ultrasound cavitation. Nevertheless, all treatments do have potential side effects. The most common symptoms are redness or swelling in the treatment area. These side effects will tend to disappear within a couple of weeks. Usually, they will disappear within a few days. You may notice that you need to go to the toilet more after the treatment because of the release of waste and toxins by the body. Moreover, your skin may be a little bit drier after you have had ultrasound cavitation. This can last for a few days. Nevertheless, using lotions that have aloe vera in them can help with this. More often than not, people can go straight back to their normal daily life as soon as they have had the treatment.
