29Bodysculpting treatments are hugely popular at the moment with hardly any spa or clinic not offering some sort of fat-reducing service. While fat-freezing cryolipolysis, and fat-melting laser treatments can be very effective, they are on the pricey side as well as requiring at least an hour of clients’ time.
A faster, less painful fat reducing treatment is Ultrasound Cavitation, which can literally be performed during your lunch break. However, it requires diligent post-treatment care in order to show visible results. Founder and Director of Lux Allure, Carly Porter, explains the importance of her fat cavitation at-home after care plan:
I explain to my clients that the after care is crucial for achieving the best results from ultrasound fat cavitation treatments. The after care for ultrasound fat cavitation is detailed, however it is worth sticking to. In my experience, the treatment will only work at its optimum if the after care is followed.
To ensure your body responds well to ultrasound fat cavitation, drink 1.5L of water prior to and following your treatment. Stagger 2L intake of water over 24 hours, for three days post-treatment. I always have my 2L bottle with me, which encourages me to keep up my water intake.
The ultrasound fat cavitation treatment works by eliminating fat and toxins via the lymphatic and urinary systems. The body requires three days to properly eliminate the fat and toxins after a treatment. Treatment intervals also need to reflect this; at least three days must pass between each session. For most clients, I recommend a minimum of between six and ten fat cavitation treatments for best results.
It is important to topically stimulate the treatment area following your session. When I have fat cavitation performed on myself, I use a body brush in the shower to promote movement around the area. I use a body moisturiser daily, and I find that liberally massaging moisturiser on the treatment area is also beneficial. I do this daily to prevent fat and toxins from becoming stagnant and difficult to eliminate.
Maintaining a low calorie, low carbohydrate, low fat, and low sugar diet for 24 hours pre-treatment and three days post-treatment will help achieve the best results. This is to ensure your body utilizes the triglycerides (a type of body fat) released by the fat cavitation process. If suitable, I also encourage my clients to stick to this diet as much as they can. Many find this to be a great starting point for maintaining a healthier lifestyle in the future.
A minimum of 20 minutes of elevated heart rate cardio exercise is required post-treatment. This is best to be done immediately after the treatment, and for three days following. This is to ensure the stored energy released by the cavitation process is burnt off. If cardio is not your style, this where infrared sauna sessions may assist, as it has a similar effect on the body.
Additional steps can be taken to achieve optimum results. You can assist your body to flush toxins by following your treatment with the use of an infrared sauna. Lymphatic drainage will help eliminate released toxins from the body. This can be done post-treatment via a massage or using the cavitation vacuum treatment. Both can be completed at Lux Allure immediately after your treatment.
By following the ultrasound fat cavitation after care plan, the results will be visible. It is a non-invasive treatment which requires no downtime, and offers results which are comparable to liposuction.
