What is Ultrasonic cavitation and Radio Frequency treatments? A non-invasive proven method to eliminating stubborn body fat and improving the elasticity of the skin. When combining the treatments, ultrasonic cavitation and radio frequency complement each other for comprehensive body sculpting and skin tightening. Ultrasonic cavitation targets localized fat deposits, while radio frequency addresses skin laxity and promotes a smoother, more toned appearance. Both treatments can be used as a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures, providing clients with effective results and no downtime. 

How does Ultrasonic Cavitation work to reduce fat?

Ultrasonic cavitation utilizes low-frequency ultrasound waves to create microscopic bubbles within the targeted fat cells. The pressure from these bubbles causes the fat cell membranes to break down, releasing the stored triglycerides (liquid fat) into the surrounding tissues. The body’s lymphatic system then processes these released fats out of the body through the natural metabolic processes.

How does Radio Frequency work to tighten the skin?

Radio Frequency technology involves the use of high-frequency electrical currents to heat the deeper layers of the skin. The heat produced by radio frequency stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, promoting tightening and firmness. Collagen is essential for maintaining skin elasticity, and increased collagen production helps to reduce  sagging and improve overall skin texture. Additionally, RF can enhance blood circulation and promote lymphatic drainage, contributing to a more sculpted appearance. 

Does Ultrasonic Cavitation and Radio Frequency Actually Work?

Now that you have a better understanding of how Ultrasonic Cavitation and Radio Frequency works, you may be wondering is this technology an effective method for reducing stubborn fat and tightening the skin, and the answer is yes. These treatments have shown effectiveness for certain aesthetic purposes, but it’s important to note that individual results can vary, and the degree of success depends on factors such as:

  •  The individual’s health
  • Lifestyle
  • The specific treatment parameters.

Studies from the National Library of Medicine have suggested that ultrasonic cavitation can lead to a reduction in localized fat deposits, particularly in areas like the abdomen and thighs.Cavitation is considered a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, but multiple sessions may be required to achieve desired results. While Ultrasonic Cavitation and Radio Frequency technology have shown promise, it’s crucial to approach them with realistic expectations. Results can vary, and they are influenced by factors such as:

  • The Patient’s age
  • Skin type
  • Overall health, and adherence to post-treatment care

What areas can you perform the treatment on?

Ultrasonic cavitation and radio frequency treatments can be performed on the following face and body areas: 

  • Face and Neck – Radio Frequency Only
  • Abdomen 
  • Back and flanks 
  • Arms 
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks 

How long do results last?

Ultrasonic cavitation and radio frequency treatments can take anywhere from 40 minutes up to an hour and a half depending on the area treated. 

How many treatments will I need?

Results vary from person to person. While you can see immediate results after the first treatment, a series of treatments is recommended to accomplish the patient’s desired goals. With the DreamBody ELITE Ultrasonic Cavitation and Radio Frequency machine, a client can see desirable results in as little as 3-6 treatments. The treatment area will continue to improve over the course of 6-12 weeks.  

How long will my results last?

The results from ultrasonic cavitation and radio frequency treatments can vary based on several factors, including individual characteristics, lifestyle choices, and the specific treatment regimen. Here are some recommendations to maintaining your results:

1. Maintenance Treatments
Results from ultrasonic cavitation and radio frequency treatments may be noticeable after a series of sessions. However, these treatments often require maintenance sessions to sustain the achieved results over time.

2. Lifestyle Factors
Your lifestyle plays a significant role in how long your results last. Adopting a healthy lifestyle, staying hydrated, and engaging in regular exercise can contribute to maintaining the effects of the treatments. Weight fluctuations and significant lifestyle changes may impact the longevity of the results.

3. Individual Variation Individual responses to these treatments can vary. Factors such as age, skin type, and genetics can influence the duration of results.

4. Follow-up Care
Following the post-treatment care instructions provided by your practitioner can influence the longevity of results. This may include avoiding sun exposure, using appropriate skincare products, and following all of the recommended guidelines

5.Combine with Other Treatments
You can combine ultrasonic cavitation and radio frequency treatments with other aesthetic procedures for enhanced and longer-lasting results.

Keep In Mind

It’s essential to have realistic expectations and to communicate openly with your practitioner about your goals and concerns. They can provide guidance on the recommended number of sessions, potential maintenance requirements, and ways to optimize and prolong the benefits of the treatments.

Keep in mind that while these treatments can be effective, they may not provide permanent results, and individual experiences can vary. Regular consultations with your practitioner can help assess your progress and determine whether additional sessions or adjustments to your treatment plan are necessary to maintain the desired results.
