Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation

Also known as Non-Invasive Liposuction. This is a relatively new procedure to get the fat moving and lose some inches in your target area.

What is Fat Cavitation?
It's a high tech way of destroying fat in the stomach, thighs, bum and arms. It is pain free and non invasive.

How does it work?
Basically it is concentrated sonic energy that is directed at localised areas, which breaks down the fat cells. The fat cells break down into fluid and gets expelled out of your body via the liver like any other simple fatty acid consumed from food. That's it in a nutshell, I'm not good at being all technical.


How many treatments are necessary?
It varies from person to person, the most dramatic results are seen between 8-10 weeks(one session per week).

If you have Epilepsy, are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a pacemaker - you cannot have the treatment. There are other factors too that deem you unable to have this done, so I'd advise checking with your clinic if you have any health conditions.

Each session lasts about 30 minutes and no longer than 30 minutes.

You should not eat 2 hours before and 1 hour after treatment. You MUST drink 3 litres of water a day to help your body expel the fat. Stick to low fat food and exercise.

So, with my non technical 'technical' stuff out of the way, I decided to try it.

I chose my lower abdomen because I seem to lose weight there last - my poor boobs have shrunken away to two pancakes, but my gut is as big as ever. She got me to lie down on the massage table and slathered my belleh in oil. With a hand held device that was much like a dustbuster type thing, she vacuumed my stomach. This is to stimulate the lymphatic system and treatment area. It promotes circulation and fluidify (apparently it is a word, even though the spell checker says otherwise!) the zone to be treated. It didn't really hurt so much, it really did feel like she was dragging a vacuum cleaner nozzle across me. It was sort of pinchy and pully, but not too bad. This lasted for about a minute.

Then she covered me in ultrasound gel(much like the one they use when your have a pregnancy ultrasound). It was a metal round disc attached to a hand held piece. This was not painful at all, the disc was quite warm, almost hot at times and it vibrated. A lot.This process causes the fat cells to pressurize and heat up which in turn makes them implode(and fluidify! lol). The oddest thing about this is as soon as the ultrasound wand touched my skin, I started getting a high pitched hum or ringing in my ears. It was a little annoying at first but I was talking so much to the lovely woman that it didn't bother me too much towards the end. This stage lasted 20 minutes.

According to my after care paperwork, she was meant to use the vacuum on me again, but she didn't, so I may query that next week when I go in again.

I had this treatment almost 3 hours ago and I feel as though I've done a hundred sit ups. Something must be happening in there!! lol.

The treatment cost me $170 for a single treatment, but I decided to continue and bought another 3 for $299. Well worth it if you have stubborn fat areas to move but have struggled with but normal diet and exercise. Of course, I will have to keep up with my diet, water and exercising more - it would just be a waste of money otherwise.

I have taken a week 1 photo. Please don't look at my daggy pink knickers(how embarrassing!).
