All your questions answered in one place.
What is Ultrasound Cavitation?
A new treatment in the world of aesthetics! Ultrasound Cavitation uses a top-of-the-range technology called 3D-Lipo, which converts fat cells into liquids that can be drained naturally through the filtration system of the body. In most circumstances, a single Cavitation treatment will last anywhere up to 60 minutes when a single area is treated. 72 hours must be allowed to pass between sessions the body needs to eliminate the fat. The minimum number of sessions needed if often eight to get the best results.
What Areas Receive the Most Effective Treatment?
Any areas that contain localised fat such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks and buttocks are all popular as an effective treatment. However, there is a slight limitation relating to cavitation when it comes to the face or the body.
How Does Ultrasound Cavitation Work?
When you arrive at Crystal Clear Skin, our experienced therapists will apply a carefully designed hand piece to your skin. This will begin to transmit ultrasonic waves at a low level which will prompt expansion and compression impulses in high-speed cycles. The cycle of back and forth will prompt “cavitation”. The creation of micro- cavities that gradually enlarge and eventually collide and implode, which creates shockwaves that allow for the elimination of fat tissues following emulsification. After this treatment the remaining liquid will easily be eliminated from the body through the urinary and lymphatic systems.
Is Ultrasound Cavitation Safe and Painless?
Cavitation is a completely painless treatment, although you may notice areas of mild redness occasionally. It is unlikely you will experience any actual pain, the heat that you will experience during the treatment from the hand pieces is not unpleasant. This is a non-invasive treatment, ultrasound cavitation requires no cutting, leaves no scars and eliminates the need for downtime or post- operative courses after treatment.
Can Ultrasonic Cavitation Help You Lose Weight?
Ultrasonic Cavitation is not recommended as a method of losing weight, although it can support weight loss along with diet and exercise and can be used as a method to reshape the body. It is particularly effective at removing the appearance of “adiposity”, or love handles that many people struggle to diminish through basic exercise and diet routines. Treatments can also remove cellulite and prevent fat cells from recurring within the areas that have been treated, without causing any damage to the vascular system.
Fat is solid- So How Do I Eliminate It Through Urine?
The ultra sound cavitation method causes fat to be emulsified, it is converted into a liquid substance that is easy to eliminate through the lymphatic and urinary systems.
What Should I do Before Treatments?
To get the most out of our treatment we always recommend drinking at least 1.5 litres of water before and after the session and sticking to a low fat calorie diet. Drinking water is crucial in aiding the elimination of fat, and regular low impact exercise such as aerobic activities or walking should be undertaken in order to maintain results, also allows the system to process the fat naturally following the treatment. We recommend that clients continue to drink between 1.5- 2 litres of water every day, as hydration improves success rates.
Number of Treatments
We recommend between 6 and 10 treatments for Ultrasound Cavitation. Each treatment will require 1 to 2 weeks apart per area. Most sessions will last between 20- 60 minutes and include benefits you would not get with other treatments, including a non- invasive approach, no need for anaesthesia, no scars and very little discomfort.

“I just wanted to turn back time because I’m young at heart and I don’t like to see an old woman looking back at me! I had four treatments in total and I barely recognise myself! It really works and I certainly look much younger!”

“Before I came to Crystal Clear Skin, I had tried so many other ways to lose weight. I felt unhappy about myself because of my weight, and refused to go up another pant size! The 3d-lipo program changed my life and the way I eat, look, and feel. I was surprised that the weight was coming off so quickly, and I loved that I could still cook my own food; I am a chef, so that was very important to me! I work in a kitchen 5 days a week but was able to lose the weight because I could still cook for myself. I love the way I feel now! I feel like I have the confidence to take on anything in life.”
