What is Ultrasonic Cavitation & Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a process where you transmit waves of ultrasonic in to cellulite affected areas of your body. The frequency of the ultrasonic is set to disrupt the fat cells that are causing the cellulite to appear. The continuation of the cavitation therapy causes the fat the get moped up within the lymphatic system and disposed of via the liver. The technology is very effective and a real technological breakthrough for getting rid of cellulite.
Regarding radio frequency skin tightening (RF), Wikipedia describes it in general terms very well: This therapy is an aesthetic technique that uses RF (radio frequency) energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin.
This technology produces best results when used alongside Ultrasonic Cavitation technology. The top performing units adopt both technologies within the one unit, and for effective results, you really need both, and I will explain the reason why in a bit.
Basically, the ultrasonic cavitation breaks down fat cells which then naturally are removed from the body over a 72 hour period. The radio frequency (RF) aspect of the unit produce frequencies that go deep within the skin's surface. The frequencies create a comfortable but effective heat within the fat cells. This raise in temperature causes lipids and triglycerides to be released and removed from the body. Lipids and triglycerides, according to Dr. Diana Howard create an environment for cellulite to flourish, so the removal / reduction of these properties add yet another major benefit to the use of one of these units.
Finally, and one of the most important aspects of the RF unit is that the deep heat generated within the connective tissue actually encourages the increases of the body’s production of collagen
Now if there was one thing you could do to get rid of cellulite, it would be to increase the body’s production of collagen and elastin. It is the collagen that provides the strength that holds the connective tissue together. As you age, the body’s production of collagen reduces. This in turn means that the connective tissue becomes weakened. As it weakens, fat cells under the skin can then start to bulge through the connective tissue matrix. It is this that gives this the cellulite appearance. The remedy therefore, is to produce collagen, and the cellulite issue will go away.
So the biological process your body works out when using a high quality combined ultrasonic cavitation (UC) and radio frequency (RF) skin tightening machine is the following: -
Break down of fat cells (UC)
Aids the removal of fat from the body (UC)
Toning and tightening of the body area (UC)
Heat deep fat cells & tissue (RF)
Stimulate collagen production to increase the strength of your skins connective tissue (RF)
Increase the elasticity of the skin to provide a tight beautiful cellulite free appearance (RF)
The regular use of this technology provides an environment that actually stimulates the production of collagen. This is a huge advancement for the treatment of cellulite.
The operation of both technologies are effective in firming the skin and most importantly, getting rid of cellulite. In addition to this, you will also find that it works impressively to firm, tone and tighten your skin. It is amazing technology.
So what we are actually talking about with this technology is a treatment process as opposed to applications such as wraps and creams.
Is This Technology Dangerous?
Ultrasonic Cavitation and radio frequency skin tightening or all sounds rather scary, but I can assure you that it is completely safe and nothing to be concerned about.
Basically, ultrasonic cavitation transmits ultrasonic waves that penetrate to the fat cells of your body. The frequency of the ultrasonic at 40Khz is totally safe. We are surrounded by ultrasonic all the time in life. A couple of products that use ultrasonic are dog whistles and medical ultra sound devices that send in ultrasonic waves to monitor a baby in the mother’s womb.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening uses a Frequency in the region of 1500Khz. There are other frequencies involved, but in simple terms, it is a basic safe frequency, with zero risk or danger to the body. On a constant daily basis, our bodies are subjected to far more dangerous frequencies from within the environment. These frequencies include microwave, ultra violet, infra-red and in many areas of the world the dangerous radioactive frequency from radon gas.
So in conclusion, there is no risk of danger in any way whatsoever with using this technology.
What Does It Actually Do?
I am now going to introduce you to the product I personally recommend to best explain what the technology does.
Recommended Unit For
Ultrasonic Cavitation Skin Tightening Therapy
This is a product that is getting good reviews. It works, but is not particularly cheap. However, it is still affordable for many people and in my opinion, provides better value than any other unit or cellulite therapy available.
By using this device, you will notice certain results in a relatively short amount of time. This is not a long drawn out process that you have to wait weeks to see results, although on going sessions will gradually increase the effectiveness of the results. However, I said, that the results are instant, so what I mean by this is that specific aspects will provide instant results. Skin tightening is the main instant result. There are fat reduction results too, but these are initially minimal from a single session, however, for best results, you should use it about twice per week and continue using the device for a few weeks to really see significant results. When you have achieved the skin appearance you are looking for, you can reduce to once per week.
How To Use The Cavitation Unit
OK, so how do you use these devices? Let me take you through the process step by step.
Step 1: Using The Ultrasonic Cavitation Head
You start off with using the ultrasonic cavitation head. You typically use this on a specific body part for around 20 minutes, and then another 20 minutes for another body part area and so on, so if you are working on your tummy, buttocks, and legs, the cavitation session in total would take in the region of 80 – 90 minutes.
You initially apply a cavitation gel to the area you are treating and then switch on the machine and the cavitation head will be activated. You need to use the head to massage it all over the area you are treating. The video below demonstrates the use of this unit.
From a technical point of view, the ultrasonic cavitation process sends ultrasonic frequency in to the body. The frequency is set to target the fat cells and break them down. During the 20 minute session, the fat cells will begin to break down and weaken. Now what you may not realize, is that you develop fat cells in your body as you grow. When you become a young teenager, you will have developed all the fat cells you will ever have, and at that stage you no longer develop fat cells. However, later, when people start gaining weight, they are not developing new fat cells, but adding to and enlarging the current fat cells. What we are accomplishing with the ultrasonic cavitation, is the breakdown of these cells which is the first stage in this amazing process of fat reduction.
After the treatment, the fat cells that have been broken down will leave the body by means of lipolysis. What you will find, is that over a 72 hour period after your session, your body will continue to process and remove the broken down fat cells and toxins from your body. You will find that during this period you will need to go to the toilet more frequently than you do normally, so it is important that you keep your fluids up and drink plenty of water to remain hydrated. The process that is taking part in your body is that it is actually removing the broken down fat cells from your body, so for best results, it is important to aid this process and flush the broken down fat and toxins from your body, and water is the best way to aid this process.
At the end of the ultrasonic cavitation treatment session, you will feel much more toned in that body area you have treated. You will feel amazing actually, because you will be able to feel the difference, and it will feel really well toned and firm. Most importantly though, you will be able to see a difference in the size of the area you have treated. Now this process of body improvement continues throughout the next 72 hours as the fat and toxins are removed from your body.
One quick note of dont's….. when you are about to start an ultrasonic cavitation session, make sure you avoid caffeine for at least 3 hours prior to your session, so no coffee and tea, unless it is decaffeinated during this period, because it makes the whole process less effective, and you want best results – right?
How To Carry Out A DIY Ultrasonic Cavitation Therapy Session
All of the techniques and therapies I have detailed in this post and throughout the site, you can do yourself, on your own. You don’t need to call on a friend or anyone to help you do any of these therapies or procedures. You may find however, that using the cavitation unit may take a bit of getting used to when using it on your own, but it is quite simple, and I know you will figure it out. I am going to detail the best way to use the unit for each part of your body.
Also, as the sessions take around 20 minutes per body part, you might find it easier to do your tummy one day, and your legs the next day, and your buttocks the next day and so on. This means that you can have a daily routine that doesn’t take too long. Remember, you should wait at least 72 hours between sessions on the same area, so doing it this way makes most sense.
The best way to use the Ultrasonic Cavitation head is for you to lie on your back on your bed. First of all thought, it is a good idea to lay a towel on your bed. Lying on a towel will help keep your bed sheets dry from any cavitation gel residue that you need to apply to the skin you are treating with the cavitation head. Apply the cavitation gel to your tummy and gently spread over the entire surface area you are going to treat. Switch the unit on and apply the head so that the large head end sits flat on your tummy. Slowly, in a circling motion glide the head over all the tummy area, going from either left to right or right to left, and then repeat the process for about 20 minutes
Thighs, Inner Thighs, Front & Back Of Legs
Whilst still lying on the bed, apply cavitation gel to one of your legs to your inner & outer thighs and your front and rear of your leg. Start working on the back of your leg first. Lie on your back and raise your leg so that your leg is at right angles with your body. Hold your knee with one of your hands and apply the cavitation head like you did on your tummy in a circling motion, going up and down the back of your leg. At the same time, use apply the head to your inner thigh of that leg. After 10 – 15 minutes, whilst your knee is still perpendicular to your body, start working on your outer thigh, and the front of your leg for another 10 – 15 minutes.
When you have completed your session for your first leg, do the exact same process and steps for your other leg.
The easiest way to carry out this process on your buttocks, is to do it standing up. Apply the cavitation gel to both buttocks and carry out the same motion with the cavitation head as you have done in the previous steps. Do this for about 20 minutes.
To work on your arms, you will find it easiest to do it sitting upright on a chair. Apply the gel as you did previously. Do one arm at a time. Only apply the gel to the area you are treating. You will find it easiest to clasp the back of your neck with your hand, and then this way, you will be able to most of the area of your upper arm. For reaching the outer part of your upper arm, you might find it easiest to clasp the side of your left waist (if you are working on your right arm). Do this process for around 15 – 20 minutes for each arm.
How To Carry Out A DIY Session
The best positions to take are the same as with the first treatment: -
Lay on your back to work on your tummy, legs and thighs
Stand up to work on your buttocks
Sit on a chair upright to work on your arms
When you have completed the Cavitation therapy, you should first rinse or shower off the residue gel.
DIY Anti-Aging Therapy
As this site is all about getting rid of cellulite and making your body and skin look amazing, I think I need to digress a little and venture in to the beauty / anti-aging sector. The radio frequency head is designed to tighten the skin. It is not something that lasts for just a couple of minutes. It actually lasts for a long time. It varies from person to person, but it can last months and reports have even suggested years.
Using the head on your neck and face will provide a gentle tightening of your skin, which helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles. Obviously, it can’t get rid of deep lines and wrinkles, but lesser lines and wrinkles, it works well on, so from a “get rid of cellulite” and anti-aging device, this particular unit is top of my list.
Does It Really Work
Before and after pictures are really the only way you can see the significant change that this unit provides. Take a look at this image above. You can see before and after. The after shows results achieved after a few sessions of using the unit. You can see that the after result has smoothed the skin caused by the cellulite in the before picture, and the skin now appears to be much firmer, toned with a tightness that looks very sexy.
Now something you need to bear in mind, and this is important to understand so that there are no false expectations. This is not a miracle machine. It does work, and you can see and feel results instantly after just one session. Additional regular sessions increase the desired results.
It’s important to understand from an expectation point of view that the success is a build up process, and you will need to use this as I recommend over the course of a few weeks to see best results.
Also, if you have strong cellulite appearance and or you are largely over weight, the unit will help you and will make a significant difference, but for best results, you would need to address the following areas to maximize the weight and cellulite loss: -
Remember, you can get rid of cellulite. You just need to be committed to carry out some simple routines and invest in some equipment and applications
For best results, you should combine the Ultrasonic Cavitation | Radio Frequency Skin Tightening in conjunction with the anti-cellulite wrap application process that I detailed in this article. So in order of session, application procedure, you should work your sessions like this: -
Apply the cavitation gel to the areas you are going to work on
Carry out your 40 minute Ultrasonic Cavitation therapy session
Shower of excess cavitation gel and then wash well with a scrub as detailed in the cellulite wrap post
Wash off the scrub and dry thoroughly
Apply the Thermo Active Hot Gel to the body part/s you want to work on, massaging in to the skin area thoroughly
Apply the wrap applicator that include the additional active anti cellulite ingredients
Wrap the skin you are treating with cling film covering twice to maintain a firm seal and tightness
Wrap the cling film in a hot towel and relax for the next 30 – 45 minutes.
Remove the towel and wrap and shower to remove all sweat and compound residue
Dry thoroughly and apply our recommended anti cellulite cream. This cream is the only cream I recommend due to the properties it has within the high quality ingredients
If you want to purchase or check out all recommended items detailed in the list above, I have detailed them here below for your information.
You can get rid of cellulite. There is no doubt about it. It is all part of doing things the right way, and I teach methods that work, but I also help you go beyond that so that your skin looks firm, beautiful, radiant and very healthy.
One final piece of advice is that you don’t go the cheap option. Generally, in life, you get what you pay for. I try to bring you solutions that offer the best value. Now value is important, but the best value is rarely the cheapest. Value in a product is something that provides the best results for the price you are paying, so if you pay $20 for a product that gives 4% results but you compare that with a same type of product that costs $40 but gives 12% results, the $40 product is three times more effective, but only twice the price, so where ever I have listed a product, it has been on providing value to give you the best results for the money.
One final point I need to stress, is that you help the treatment as much as possible by eating the right foods. Avoid carbohydrates as much as possible, and eat some of the healthy foods I recommend in my post titled Foods that Get Rid of Cellulite. Do some exercise every day. I show you some easy exercises that are great for getting rid of cellulite, and finally, drink lots of water. Avoid excessive alcohol and caffeine, and you will be giving your body an amazing head start to make the therapy as effective as possible.
