Fat cavitation is a safe, simple and relaxing treatment that can help sculpt your body. 

As we get older, diet and exercise don’t always get rid of stubborn cellulite or excess fat cell build up... Fat caviation is the perfect treatment to remove excess fat from the waist, stomach, arms, back, hips and thighs. 

What is ultrasound fat cavitation treatment? 

High frequency ultrasonic waves are emmitted from a hand piece directly onto the skin/treatment area, to increase blood circulation and target the fat layer of the skin. Massaging the hand piece across the treatment area creates a vibrational effect that disrupts fat cell membranes; whilst safely avoiding disruption to blood vessels and other skin structures.

Once the fat cell membranes have been disrupted, the cells’ triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood) convert into free fatty acids and glycerol. These waste products are then released into the fluid between the fat cells, where they are transported to the liver and excreted from the body via the lymphatic system.

The treatment itself feels more like a massage - you get to lay down on a bed - and is pleasant and relaxing. 

What changes will you see in your body?

Your skin will look and feel smoother (less lumpy) as the treatment rids your body of the excess fat build up and increases cellular metabolism.

Your skin's colour will also improve and look healthier, as the increased blood circulation oxygenates your skin and surrounding tissues, and flushes out waste.

Maximum results are achieved when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. 

Contraindications for fat cavitation?

As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin diseases or infections in the area treated, you can undergo this treatment.


  • Taking blood-thinning medication;
  • Pregnancy;
  • Epilepsy;
  • Wearing a pacemaker or electromagnetic implant;
  • Lack of skin temperature;
  • Cancer;
  • Bacterial infections;
  • Metal implants in the area to be treated;
  • Diabetes.

Recommended sessions:

Six to ten sessions are usually recommended to achieve maximum result. This will vary from client to client and results are influenced by age/treatment area.

Side effects for fat reduction treatment?

  • You might experience a little swelling, redness or tightening on or around the treated area. This  is normal and typically disappears in a few days.
  • You may notice you "wee" more following treatment. This is normal as your body flushes out the "melted" fat from your body post treatment.

The best thing about having this treatment is that there is no down time, and your normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after a session.
