Cavitation is an ultrasound at a very high frequency that produces heat and vibration. This vibration – 40,000 times per second – in combination with heat, makes the fat cells move and dissolve for easy elimination through the lymphatic system. To aide this elimination, it is important to perform lymphatic massage to force the toxins to be eliminated from the body.
See immediate results the same day, with no-downtime, no needles, and no pain.
Most clients experience a reduction in the circumference of the treated area after the first session, with increasing results after each visit – but especially after the third treatment and onward. As with any treatment, the results may vary from person to person depending on age, tissue structure, treatment area, individual metabolism, current medications, and changes in hormones. Maintaining a proper diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain the results.
Results will continue to improve for several weeks following the last treatment session. The body will continue to metabolize fat for up to twelve weeks which means that for most people the loss can be permanent. This procedure will also leave your skin firmer and smoother looking than before.
Radio Frequency (RF) is the number of oscillations (or waves) per second of the electric and magnetic fields within the radio waves portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. In the aesthetic field, these waves are the newest and most promising technology in the treatment of loose and sagging skin, and are the most recent non-invasive facial rejuvenation procedure many refer to it as the “natural face-lift.” RF energy is delivered into multiple layers of skin while protecting the surface layer. This heating process during treatment causes collagen fibers within the layers of skin to contract. The contracting of fibers tightens the skin creating a tighter, brighter, more youthful appearance. New collagen and elastin fibers below the surface are created as a result of the increase in metabolism of fibroblasts.
RF treatments cause the heating of fat cells in the adipose layer. This loose connective tissue is comprised mostly of adipocytes and stores energy in the form of lipids (fats). The heat from RF forces the adipocytes to release the fatty acids into the lymphatic system, which acts as a filter for the body. Once the fatty acids are released from the adipocytes, they shrink and the body becomes slimmer. RF can thus be used to enhance Cavitation Ultrasound, or as a stand-alone for therapy on the face or body.
When fat cells swell within the hypodermis layer, they push the dermis against connective tissue and cause cellulite. Targeted fat reduction is due to the power of ultrasound vibrating and breaking down the fat cell at localized targeted areas. Our devices allow for vibrations and lymphatic flow and removal of from fat beginning within minutes of treatment. RF skin tightening is created through the power of ultrasonic waves and radio frequency waves that stimulate collagen production below the muscle layer causing instant skin tightening that you can feel immediately, and through the coming days. Some of the most advantageous areas for treatment are underarms (or bat wings), abdomen, thighs (or saddle bags), and buttocks.

Cavitation Ultrasound, or “Non-surgical Liposuction” was introduced for the first time in Milan, Italy in 2005 under the Italian name “Cavitazione Estetica,” though the physical phenomenon referred to as “cavitation” has been well known since the 1960s. Cavitation Ultrasound has been used throughout Europe since 2005 and has gained popularity for a variety of reasons, but primarily because of its safety. Cavitation Ultrasound does not carry the risk of pain and side effects that surgical liposuction does. There is also no disruption to your life or schedule due to “recovery time.” It is also much less costly than surgical liposuction.
So why is it called Cavitation Ultrasound “Non-surgical Liposuction?” Cavitation means the breaking down of the fatty tissue. The therapy uses low level ultrasound to emulsify fat. The lower the frequency, the stronger the treatment. Once that fat is broken down, the fat will be removed in a natural, non-surgical fashion through the lymphatic and urinary systems at the pace your body will decide it can tolerate. Because the treatment results in the removal of fat from the body, it is commonly referred to as “non-surgical liposuction.”
For best results, and because the proper function of the lymphatic and urinary systems are required for the removal of the fat cells from the body, Body BeneFits recommends a few, easy-to-follow guidelines to aide in the success of your Cavitation Ultrasound treatments:
HYDRATION: Drinking water is essential in order to eliminate the wastes and toxins your body will ridding itself of. We recommend drinking at least 1.5 – 2 liters of water on the days before and after the session, in addition to always getting plenty of water on a regular basis. If you are already following a weight loss program we recommend you continue with your present plan.
ALCOHOL: Alcohol can prevent your liver from working to remove fats, as it will make alcohol metabolism its priority before fat removal, and could hinder your results. To achieve the best results, it is recommended to refrain from any alcohol consumption for 2 – 3 days following your treatments.
Finally, it is recommended to refrain from tanning during your treatment program. If you must tan, please do not do so for at least three days prior to your Cavitation Ultrasound & RF sessions. Tanning may cause your skin to become overly sensitive to the Ultrasound and RF frequencies. Ask us about our Infinity Sun, state-of-the-art airbrush spray tanning.
