Ultra Cavitation FAQ’s

What are the side effects of Ultrasound Cavitation?

  • Increased need to urinate (this is due to the extra water intake and the process of eradication of fat from the body.)
  • Increase in energy levels after treatment (this is due to the body burning excess fat  that has now been released as energy.)
  • Redness on the surface of the skin in the areas that have been treated usually disappears after a few hours.
  • Swelling although this is rare subsides within 24 hours.
  • Mild bruising.
What aftercare is advised?
  • Drink 2 – 3 litres of water every day during your course of treatments and for 1 week following your last treatment.
  • It is important to stimulate the area after treatment, we advise massaging the area every day to help stimulate the process of lymphatic drainage.
  • The intervals between sessions recommended are at least 3 – 6 days.
  • A minimum of 20 minutes of elevated heart rate exercise is required post-treatment.
  • This is best done immediately after your session and for 3 days following this to ensure the stored energy released by the cavitation process is burnt off. If you don’t like cardio, infrared sauna sessions have a similar effect on the body.
