Ultrasonic Cavitation & Radio Frequency

About

Ultrasound Cavitation & Radio Frequency treatment to act on all localized fat deposits. These include those located in the most difficult and stubborn areas. Unlike other fat removal techniques, this advance treatment is a non-invasive and non-surgical fat removal treatment for fat emulsification and cellulite reduction.

Most clinics only offer 40K Cavitation, which is an older technology that causes fat cells on the surface to be destroyed. However, at J2K Body, we also use 80K Cavitation, this causes deeper stubborn fat cells to be excreted by the lymphatic system. This causes a breakdown of adipose tissue (fat cell membrane) at a deeper level, resulting in a more defined and noticeable difference in the reduction of fat.

If you’re a man or woman with stubborn fat and bulges on your stomach that just don’t seem to go away even with dieting or exercise, and you don’t want to undergo tummy tuck or liposuction surgeries, then this body contouring and fat reduction technique is for you. Sudden weight loss, aging, pregnancy or simply a lack of regular exercise can cause such imperfections on your stomach.

Ultrasonic Cavitation

Ultrasonic Cavitation or commonly called Cavitation for short, consist of low-level frequencies that transmit into the skin and cause a biological phenomenon that consist of the formation of bubbles in between the fat cells. This creates a shock wave that selectively damage the membranes of the adipocytes (fat cells). After the breakdown of adipose tissue (fat cell membrane), the liquid fat is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where it is enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids.


Water-soluble glycerol travels into the circulatory system and is used for new energy generation. The insoluble free fatty acids enter the liver where they are decomposed like any other simple fatty acid and excreted as waste (urine). It is scientifically proven that after a cavitation session, excess fat liquid are drained from that body via the urinary system and no damage is caused to the surrounding organs or tissues.


There will also be an increase production of diuresis (the production of urine by the kidneys) in the hours following the treatment session, and continues into the next day as the body metabolizes the excess liquid caused by the fat cells. Some clients do have an urge to use the toilet straight after treatment, this is normal and is the result of the fat cells leaving the body. As the urine becomes more acidity, the smell and color of the urine may be observed right after the treatment session, this is very apparent for those clients that have a higher percentage of body fat. Cavitation is very effective.

Radio Frequency

Radio Frequency is non-invasive technology that uses an applicator to induce the generation of heat within the cutaneous tissues. The heat causes an increase in microcirculation and drainage of excess fluid, therefore reducing excess subcutaneous fat. This innovative technology delivers concentrated radio frequency (RF) heat to the deepest dermis layers hence promoting skin elasticity and firmness around your abdomen, face, legs and more.

As the radio frequencies heat the treatment area, the collagen fibers shorten and contract, stimulating the fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin fibers, this restructures and stimulates the production of new collagen, resulting in tighter, toned and more defined skin. The radio frequencies penetrate into the deeper dermal layer of the skin, resulting in the dermal layer thickening, decreasing wrinkle depth, fine lines, and leaving the skin firmer, defined and lifted. Clients often end up with reduced waist circumference, improved waist-hip ratio and tightened skin.


Ultrasound Cavitation & Radio Frequency work in conjunction to stimulate the adipocytes to release fat into the blood stream, resulting in fat reduction. They assist in the metabolism of large fat granules previously ruptured by cavitation, and aid in the removal of liquid fat through the lymphatic system. Combining Ultrasound Cavitation & Radio Frequency, they aid to rupture the remaining fat cell membranes, while aiding in the excretion of triglycerides and tightening of the skin.

UC/RF Results

Most of our clients experience 2-5 cm of circumference reduction after a single initial session. This improves with each scheduled visit to our clinic. However a course of Cavitation & Radio Frequency treatment is recommended to help clients reduce inches and reshape their bodes. It is recommend to have 1 session every 72 hours, this ensure the cells do not reabsorb the fat, and that you gain optimal results from treatment. Although this does not mean you will gain the fat back after your treatment finishes.

What to Expect

When you arrive you will meet with a J2K practitioner, who will take pictures and measure the targeted area, apply ultrasound gel and begin circular movements of the applicator transmitting low-level frequency to the desired areas. Clients may experience a slight ringing or buzzing in the ear during the treatment as the sound waves penetrate the body. This sound is only heard when the Ultrasound Cavitation applicator is used and stops when the applicator is taken off the skin.

However, when the Radio Frequency applicator is used there is a sensation of warmth, that many clients describe as been relaxing. We use cavitation and radio frequency to target fat deposits on your abdomen, buttocks, arms, knees, calves, waist and thighs. If you're unsure on what treatment would be most effective, or have any concerns then please contact us or book a free consultation.

Recommendations

Pre-care Recommendation

One Week Prior To Your Treatment Session:

  • Increasing water intake and aim to drink 2 – 3 litres per day.
  • Reduce the intake of toxins to the body (caffeine, tobacco, alcohol).
  • Medications are OK to continue, although this will be fully analysed and checked during your consultation prior to your treatment.
  • Avoid alcohol 48 hours prior to treatment.
  • Reduce intake of carbohydrates.
  • Increase the consumption of fruit and vegetables.


24 Hours Prior To Your Treatment Session

  • Drink 1 litre of water prior to your appointment.
  • Do not drink fizzy, carbonated drinks 12 hours prior to your treatment session.
  • Do not eat a large meal prior to your treatment session, as this can make you feel uncomfortable during the treatment.

Post Care Recommendation

  • Drink 2 – 3 litres of water daily, keep a large bottle with you at all times and infuse with lemons and limes for flavour. This will flush out the crystallised lipids (dead fat cells) out of your body through the lymphatic system.
  • Follow the diet plan we issue and reduce your intake of alcohol and carbohydrates.
  • Reduce your intake of caffeine to no more than 1 cup a day.
  • Exercise vigorously after treatment to help stimulate lymphatic drainage (the body’s process of the removal of fat).
  • Regular body brushing at home, this is a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells.
  • Avoid hot baths or showers, steam or heat treatments for 24 hours.
  • Avoid alcohol for 48 – 72 hours.
