The Cavi Lipo Requirement:
What to do:
- 1. After treatment the patient should not drink any alcohol for 48 hours.
- 2. Drink plenty of water. 2 L. of water before and after treatment.
- 3. Do not eat 2 hours before your treatment and 2 hours after treatment.
- 4. Do not have a hot shower (warm is alright), spa or sauna after treatment.
What to Expect:
There are different intensities of treatment you can receive. Depending on the location on the body, the size of the area needing treatment, and level of sensitivity, your practitioner will adjust the treatment intensity. The treatment uses ultrasound gel that warms as treatment progresses. If at any stage your skin feels too warm for your comfort, or get too hot, inform your practitioner immediately and they will adjust the treament.
During treatment you may hear a buzzing sound. You will be given some music to listen to, which will help enjoyment of the treatment.
Using a medium intensity you can expect a minimum circumference measurement loss of around 1/2 cm in a 20 minute treatment (conservative estimate). Most use maximum intensity, which results in an average of 1/2 cm to 2 1/2 cm.! Results are best when pre and post-treatment protocols are followed, and subsequent treatments will result in further circumference losses. Treatments can be given 4 days apart.
Depending on desired results, the size of the area treated, and the thickness of fat layer, 5-10 treaments of 40 minutes are recommended to achieve the best results. Results can vary depending on the body’s normal metabolic processes, including age and tissue structure, or can be affected by hormone fluctuations and medications.
Your practitioner is a qualified doctor that can advise you on further diet, nutritional and herbal medicine methods to accelerate weight loss and maintain a healthy body. After your first visit, Dr. Johnson will have a consultation and go over a nutritional plan and supplements to accelarate fat loss. There is no extra charge.
Is the treatment safe?
Studies have shown that ultrasound treatment is safe for use on the human body. However ultrasound treatment for fat loss is not appropriate for those who are pregnant, breast feeding, have compromised liver function, tendencies for bleeding, pace makers, epilepsy, acute illness, or cancer. Considering the cost and risks or cosmetic surgery procedures, Ultrasound Cavitation can provide a non-invasive alternative. Your practitioner will take a case history to ensure treatment is appropriate for you.
Does it Last?
Once the treament is applied, those fat cells are destroyed. The treatment is best combined with healthy eating and exercise regimes to ensure the destroyed fat cells are not rebuilt by the body. Avoidin alcohol for up to 4 days after treatment is extremely important as the liver will prioritise removing alcohol from you body rather than fat cells. Once you achieve desired results, session can be booked every 3 to 6 months if you wish to help maintain the results.
