How Ultrasonic Cavitation Can Boost Your Body Confidence
Having a slimmer, slimmer body isn’t just about appearance. There’s a big psychological boost that also comes from knowing that you look your best. Eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise play an important role in eliminating excess fat, but for many people, they are not enough to eliminate stubborn areas of fat and cellulite, waist, thighs and other areas. If you want to know how Ultrasonic Cavitation in Chicago can help you improve your body, keep reading.
What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation works to get rid of fat and cellulite painlessly and without surgery, lasers or incisions. Best of all, treatments usually take less than an hour and results are immediate.
Ultrasonic cavitation uses high-frequency sound waves, much higher than what your ear can perceive. The sound waves are directed at the deeper layers of fatty tissue below the surface of the skin. When the waves enter the treatment site, they create tiny microbubbles around the fat cells. The bubbles expand and burst, “popping” the walls of the fat cells and releasing the fatty material trapped inside. Once the cell walls are destroyed, the resulting fatty debris is carried away and eliminated by your body’s lymphatic system through your urine over a period of several weeks, leaving behind sleeker contours.
It is important to note that ultrasonic cavitation is not intended to remove large amounts of fat or to lose weight. Instead, the treatments help slim specific areas so you lose inches, your clothes fit better and you feel more confident. It’s a perfect complement to a healthy lifestyle, and many people find that undergoing the treatments and seeing results so quickly is just the motivation they need to continue their healthy habits.
What to expect after your treatment?
It is very important that you drink plenty of water for a couple of days after the treatment (and just before the treatment as well) to help your body eliminate the fat more quickly and effectively. You may have a very slight fever for a while afterwards, as your liver goes into overdrive to process the fat and remove it from your body. Immediately afterward, the skin in the treatment area may be a little red, but the pinkness will soon disappear. Your skin may also feel dry for a while, but a good moisturizer will keep it soft and supple.
Being active after treatment helps the lymphatic system work more effectively. Once the treatment is over, you should do half an hour of moderate cardiovascular activity for at least a few days afterwards to keep the lymph fluid flowing. To get the most out of the procedure, you should also follow a low-calorie, low-carbohydrate, low-fat diet for a week or more after treatment to force the body to metabolize the released fat more quickly.
It may take several weeks for the body to eliminate all traces of fat, but once the cells are destroyed by the ultrasonic energy, they are gone for good. Most people benefit from a series of treatments spaced over several weeks, which allows the body time to get rid of the remaining fat so that the results can be evaluated.
