What will Slimming Sensation do for me?
Slimming Sensation utilize a unique cavitation technology that allows for non-invasive removal of stubborn fat deposits that never seems to disappear no matter of your diet or how hard you work out. The most problematic body areas are: abdomen, flanks ('love handles'), thighs ('saddle bags'), buttocks, inner knees, upper arm, male breasts.
Your body can be now contoured with no anesthesia, no scars, and no down-time.
What is Cavitation?
Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound field creates the bubbles in the liquid, which gradually grow, and implode at certain size. The energy in the form of heat (minor effect) and pressure wave (major effect) is released. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of cavitation easily breaks them, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue.
What happens to the released fat?
After disruption of adipose cells, the fat in the form of triglycerides is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where they are enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the energy source, whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food.
What is the treatment like?
The cavitation treatment does not require any special pre-treatment. It starts with circumference measurement of the target body area, continues with circular movements of the applicator over the treatment site, and is finalized with another circumference measurement.
The duration of treatment session normally takes around 40 minutes, depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer. 3 to 6 sessions at 2-week intervals are recommended in order to achieve a notable result, but further treatments may be needed to attain your desired silhouette.
What will I feel during the treatment?
The treatment does not require anesthesia. Most of the clients consider the procedure comfortable. There may be, however, a slight discomfort due to the specific noise spreading inside your body, but it poses no harm and disappears as soon as you are not in contact with the applicator. You may also experience a little warmth during the treatment. If it turns burning hot, immediately request some extra ultrasound gel to be applied.
Can I expect any side effects?
There is a slight possibility of mild side effects such as transient redness, excessive thirst, and nausea immediately after the treatment which always resolves by drinking water. They are all short-term effects that disappear in few hours to few days.
Even though the studies have proven the treatment safe, the cavitation is not be used in clients with an acute illness, comprised liver function, severe bleeding tendencies, pace makers, or during pregnancy.
What are the expected treatment results?
The cavitation treatment yields immediate and longlasting results provided a healthy calorie controlled diet and exercise are maintained. Most of the clients experience 2 to 12 cm of circumference reduction after a single session, with increasing results after each visit. The results may vary with different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. A calorie controlled diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain the results.
Are there any lifestyle restrictions after the treatment?
For best results you should refrain from any alcohol consumption for 3 days after the treatment. Alcohol consumption during this period may prevent your liver from removing the deactivated fat cells from your body (as the liver will assign priority to removing the alcohol from your blood).
