Ultrasound Cavitation

HOW DOES ULTRASOUND CAVITATION WORK?


A fully trained therapist will apply a specially designed handpiece to your skin. The hand piece will then transmit low level ultrasonic waves which consist of compression-expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. This back and forth cycle then causes an infinite quantity of microcavities or micro-bubbles that gradually enlarge. This progressive enlargement finishes as microbubbles start to collide and implode, producing shock waves that favour emulsification and elimination of fat tissues (this phenomena is called °cavitation”). The liquid is then easily vacuumed out from the body using the lymphatic and urinary system.




WHAT IS BIPOLAR RADIOFREQUENCY - RF?


Bipolar Radiofrequency (RE) energy is a new and promising technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin. RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity by tightening, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid-thirties to fifties, with any skin colour. It is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line and the neck. RF can also be used in conjunction with ultrasound cavitation to aid in further fat breakdown and also to tighten the skin in the same area the cavitation treatment has taken place.




WHAT CAN BE TREATED WITH CAVITATION THERAPY?


Our trained therapists offer cost effective and professional treatments including: – Cellulite reduction and body contouring – Skin tightening and body contouring (where bipolar radio-frequency is combined).




IS IT SAFE?


Yes, it is a nonsurgical procedure without anaesthesia, it is non-invasive no cutting, leaves no scars or the need for any post-operative course) and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment.




WHICH AREAS CAN EFFECTIVELY BE TREATED?


All those areas with localised fat: thighs, abdomen and buttocks are the most appropriate but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body.




HOW MUCH TIME BETWEEN TREATMENTS?


The body eliminates the fat of single a session in approximately 3 – 5 days, so we recommend an interval of around one week between each session.




NUMBER OF TREATMENTS AND TREATMENT FREQUENCY?


Ultrasound Cavitation: 6 -10 treatments spaced one week apart. Skin Tightening: 6- 10 treatments spaced one week apart.




CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT WITH ULTRASOUND CAVITATION?


Cavitation is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, the famous love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise.




ARE THE RESULTS OF CAVITATION SIMILAR TO LIPOSUCTION?


Yes, because it removes cellulite preventing this from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system. However it is not as invasive and requires no anaesthesia.




MUST I FOLLOW ANY GUIDELINES BEFORE OR AFTER A CAVITATION TREATMENT?


We recommend a low calorie diet and drink at least 1.5 litres of water before and after the 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 the fat after the treatment.




FAT IS A SOLID - HOW CAN IT BE ELIMINATED THROUGH URINE?


Because Ultrasound Cavitation causes an emulsification of fat, converting it into a substance easy to eliminate through the urinary and the lymphatic system.





Cosmetic Teeth Whitening

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?


Our teeth whitening gels are the strongest available in Australia for non-dental practitioners. Clients achieve excellent results of 5-14 shades lighter on untreated teeth.




HOW LONG DOES TREATMENT TAKE?


Expect to be in the chair for 1 hour from start to end of teeth whitening.




HOW DOES IN-CHAIR TEETH WHITENING WORK?


Unlike home teeth whitening products, in-chair whitening will generally give maximum results in less than 1 hour. In-chair teeth whitening is the process of bleaching the stains on the surface of the teeth using whitening gel and light activated acceleration. Maximum results means the stains on the surface of the teeth are no longer visible and they have been returned to their original colour. The average person has around 5-14 shades of staining on the surface of their teeth due to diet and lifestyle. Teeth whitening will not whiten enamel not even when done by a dentist. Teeth whitening results will vary greatly as each person’s teeth are not the same colour to begin with. Everyone has a different diet, lifestyle and home treatment regime.

Hair loss will vary depending on what phase your follicles are in at the time of treatment. However, on average, at least 10 treatments are required for a permanent result.
