Okay Okay girls this may get technical… However I’m sure we’ve all seen it in the news and media and I’m trying to uncover the lid on what it is once and for all!
RRP: £20 – £95 per session depending on the brand and where you live
NOTE: For this product to work at all you need to drink 2-3 litres of water a day, do at least 20 mins of gentle exercise and eat foods that are low in fats.
What is it:
Ultrasonic liposuction is the safe, pain-free and effective alternative to lipo suction. With no recovery time and a fraction of the cost of lipo suction, this innovative ‘no surgery’ procedure is the latest treatment
The machine emits high levels of energy in the form of ultrasonic waves through the skin, which creates a vibrating signal within the fat cells. This method disrupts the fat call membrane and assists in releasing the fatty acids and triglycerides from the fat cell.
The second stage of the session is melting the fluid inside the fat cell allowing it to pass though the wall of the fat cell Once the fatty acid is broken down, it is either used as energy for moderate exercise or it may be drained as waste and transported through the lymphatic system, instantly shrinking the fat cells which results in inch loss.
What is the treatment like:
An ultrasound gel is applied and then the treatment is done with specific massage movements using ultrasonic wave plates which will feel like a deep massage.
How does it feel?
Throughout the ultrasonic wave massage, you will not feel the treatment working. However, the plates will feel warm against your skin, it is not uncomfortable and can be quite relaxing.
How long does a treatment take?
Each treatment takes about 30 minutes and include a full consultation as well as before
and after measurements.
How often can I have a treatment?
It is recommended that you have at least 4-8 treatments to achieve your desired results, by having two or three sessions a week. Unfortunately, daily treatments are not recommended as the complete cycle does not have time to take place, therefore reducing the overall benefits of the treatment.
How much can I lose?
As we are working with inch loss and not weight loss, it has been known for clients to lose up to
one whole dress size in a single treatment. Depending on the area treated, this can be a loss of
anything from 0.5 of an inch to eight inches in total.
What areas of the body can be treated?
The back of the arms, the upper and lower abdomen, chin, neck and jowls, knees, upper and lower
back, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, love handles, and the male chest.
How long do the effects last?
The results of the treatment are instant and you will be measured before and after your session to discover exactly the number of inches you have lost. However, as the fat cells are not removed as with lipo suction, the effects can be reversed. But if you include a healthy eating lifestyle with recommended exercise, the results can be indefinite.
What should you do after the treatment?
When the fatty acids have been released from the fat cell, they will need to be used as energy or
excreted through the lymphatic system. Therefore, at least 30 minutes of exercise (cardio, jogging,
brisk walking, power plate) is recommended within 12 hours of your treatment to ensure these
are removed from the body. If you do not exercise, the fatty acids may be re-absorbed into the
body thus reversing the effects of the treatment, and the immediate results seen after initial
treatment could be lost.
Are there any side effects?
There are no side effects to this treatment. You will feel normal and can return to your routine
after the treatment.
If you think this will be a miracle cure? your wrong! if your overweight, sorry ladies there is no kind way for me to say this, but the only way you will loose weight is by going to the gym/exercising and watching what you eat. There is nothing more complicated than that!
Though for those who want to speed up weight loss, get rid of cellulite, hate those stubborn areas of fat? this is perfect. It is not a weight loss treatment, it is a contouring treatment. if you want to smooth the lumps and bumps, this is a great way of doing it, providing you stick to the plan of drinking eating well and exercising.
Great for a body boost with an existing fitness and healthy living plan!
