Ultrasound Cavitation Body Sculpting

We use the latest technology available in the industry to ensure our clients get optimal fat loss  with each treatment.  The Cavitation Cellulite System offers customizable settings which enables us to mobilize stubborn pockets of fat and cellulite non-invasively.  There are no  surgical risks, no scarring, no pain, no compression garments, no downtime.  It feels like a warm massage. This treatment was featured on Dr. Oz as a revolutionary method of body contouring.

     It feels almost like a hot stone massage.

We do these shows all the time, but I never see results like this.  All right, I'm next.

We take your health history to ensure you are qualified to receive treatment (please see our FAQ section for contraindications and preparations before appointments).  We will discuss your health history as part of the consutation and address concerns.  Measurements can be taken to determine treatment effectiveness.


ABOUT ULTRASOUND


MY VOUCHER EXPIRED?  WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Make an appointment, of course!  We'll honor your voucher for non-invasive body contouring, expired or not - just make the appointment.


WHAT IS ULTRASOUND CAVITATION?

Simply put, it's a tool which can help you reduce fat deposits in problem areas.  Ultrasound cavitation is a non-invasive, painless, fast, and effective method of body contouring that works without surgery.  Utilizing the power of sound waves, fat in cells begin to bubble (cavitation means "to bubble") and is picked up by the lymphatic system.  When the sound wave probe is removed from the skin's surface, some of the subcutaneous fat is trapped outside the cell.  It's then processed through the liver as normal waste.


WHAT ISN'T IT?

It's not a weight loss method nor a means of improving muscle tone.  Because the process deals with small amounts of fat below the skin's surface, it's best used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle and not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise plan.  Those small amounts of fat, however, greatly impact your physical measurements.


WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?

The abdomen, hips, back, thighs/legs, arms.


CAN YOU TREAT MY DOUBLE CHIN?

We do offer facial ultrasound treatments for skin toning, but not at the same frequency used for fat reduction.  Please schedule a facial to have regions above the breast treated with ultrasound.


HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

That depends on your specific desires, how well you follow our recommendations for maximum results (more on that in a bit), and your unique physical makeup.  You can have as many treatments as needed to get the results you want, but they should be scheduled at least four days apart to give your liver, which will process the mobilized fat, a rest.  If you want to lose an inch so your clothes fit better, one session may be enough. 


HOW MANY INCHES CAN I EXPECT TO LOSE?

It varies from person to person.  We see the best results in the abdominal area with our average client losing about 2" from their abdomen in a single session with about 1" lost from the waistline, 1/2 inch from the upper abs, and 1/2 from the lower abs in a 30 minute appointment.  The most a client has lost in a single session is 2 & 1/2 inches from her waistline alone.  Additional sessions are typically needed to see the same results in the extremities (thighs and arms).


HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?

We recommend you drink at least 8-eight ounce glasses of water (sound waves travel best through a well hydrated body), avoid caffeine if possible (drink extra water, if not), and, because we want you to be kind to your liver, avoid high fat cheeses and fried foods in the 24 hours before your service.


AND AFTER?

We recommend you continue to drink adequate amounts of water, get some exercise, eat a clean diet, and avoid alcohol (still being kind to your liver) for three days following your treatment.


YOU'VE MENTIONED MY LIVER A FEW TIMES.  WHY?

It's going to be working hard to process the fat that's released into the lymphatic system.  We want you to take good care of it before and after your treatment to help maximize your results.


I HAVE TO EXERCISE?

You don't have to, but since the lymphatic system doesn't have it's own pump (like the heart for the circulatory system), it relies on muscle contraction or stimulation to get the lymphatic fluid moving through your system.  If you can't exercise, manual lymphatic drainage is recommended and can be accomplished through dry body brushing or lymphatic drainage massage.


HOW LONG HAS ULTRASOUND CAVITATION BEEN AROUND?

While it's new to the U.S., it's been used in Europe and on cruise ships in international water for many years with great results.


HOW LONG IS A SESSION?

We offer 30 and 60 minute appointments which consist of approximately 20 and 50 minutes of actual treatment time.


I BOUGHT A VOUCHER FOR A FEW HALF HOUR APPOINTMENTS.  CAN I COMBINE THEM FOR A LONGER SESSION?

Yes!  You can use two of your voucher appointments for a "double" session.  If you're booking online, be sure to select "Double", otherwise we likely won't have time for the extended treatment.


HOW MANY AREAS CAN BE TREATED AT ONE TIME?

In a single treatment, one area.  In a double, two areas can be treated, or one area can benefit from a longer treatment time.


WHAT'S A TYPICAL TREATMENT LIKE?

First, take a brief medical history to ensure you're a good candidate for ultrasound cavitation.  We then take measurements of the area you'd like to be treated and, if you approve, mark the area measured.  You lay down on our treatment table and ultrasound gel, which conducts the sound waves, is applied to the area to be treated.  When the treatment begins, you'll hear a buzzing sound as the waves travel through the subcutaneous fat in your body.  It feels like a warm massage.  Afterward, we take afte measurements.


DOES EVERYONE RESPOND TO TREATMENT?

Not everyone.  We find about 10% of the population doesn't respond in a meaningful way due to differences in body composition, the amount of subcutaneous fat, and how well each person adheres to our recommendations for maximum results.


WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATIONS?

Liver disease, kidney disease, autoimmune diseases and disorders, pregnancy, metal pins or plates, cancer, high blood pressure, and heart disease are contraindications.


ANYTHING ELSE?

If you have a great deal of weight to lose, we recommend you wait until you're within 30 lb. of your weight loss goal before trying ultrasound cavitation.  We can help you with skin tightening techniques to improve the look of your skin after significant weight loss and make recommendations to improve elasticity and skin tone.


IF IT WORKS WHY ISN'T EVERYONE DOING IT?

They are.  We've treated hundreds of clients from the greater Seattle area, but their identies are a closely held secret of ours.


ABOUT SKIN CARE


WHAT SHOULD I USE TO WASH MY FACE?

Everyone should use a gentle, deep cleanser.  One of my favorite over-the-counter cleansers is Nutragena® Naturals.  Whatever you do, don't use soap.  It cleans the surface of the skin, but not into the pores.  Also, make sure you look for a paraben free cleanser.
