FAQ

How does it work?

The science behind Cavi-lipo.. High frequency ultrasound wave stimulates and vibrates the fat cell at such a high rate it causes tiny air molecules to form that are negative in pressure. These tiny air “bubbles” force their way out of the cell and by doing so burst the fat cell. That same ultrasound wave passing through the surface skin stimulates and oxygenates the surface cells causing a firming and tightening of the skin. The Cavi-Lipo system reduces fat cells, improves cellulite, tightens skin and improves lymphatic drainage. The FDA has cleared Cavi-Lipo for use in the USA.

What can I expect at my appointments?

You can expect approximately 30 minutes to relax, read or do absolutely nothing. The Cavi-Lipo treatment is completely painless. There is sometimes a mild heat sensation similar to a hot stone massage and clients will hear a light vibration “ringing” during the process. Each treatment you will be met by your technician who will glide the hand piece with firm pressure over the treatment area for 30 minutes. Prior to treatment a picture will be taken of the area. After at least 3 treatments a second picture will be taken. After you are done with each treatment you can get back to your normal activities immediately with absolutely no downtime, nor pain, swelling or any discomfort. This is a symptom -free process except for losing unwanted inches.

What happens if I miss an appointment?

It is not recommended that you miss an appointment. Prior to starting the Cavi-Lipo treatment, it is important that you are committed to the recommended lifestyle protocol which includes at least a series of 6 treatments.

How is it different than Liposuction?

Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes the entire area of fat cells from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anesthesia, or with IV sedation, or totally by local anesthesia. In contrast, the Cavi-Lipo treatment is a 100% non-invasive that uses ultrasound and radio frequency applied externally to stimulate the fat cell and emulsify and release fat. There is no use of anesthesia, nor any pain, gels, creams, numbing agents, needles and no downtime.

Is it safe?

Yes, there is minimal risk involved in using the Cavi-Lipo therapy and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction, lipodissolve and other non-invasive devices like the Accent, VelaShape, and Thermage, which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. None of these have the proven data showing how fat cell size is reduced. The Cavi-Lipo treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scaring and zero downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.

Are there any side effects?

The majority of clients have reported no adverse side effects. Most common are headaches immediately following the treatment or a strong desire to naturally eliminate waste within a day or two following the treatment. This is the body’s way of expelling toxins. It takes approximately 72 hours for the body to process the material that has been produced.

How long do results last?

By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise you can expect long-term results. Cavi-Lipo is especially ideal for 2 types of people: those that are already following a healthy diet and lifestyle and want to remove localized pockets of fat or drop body fat % OR those who want to use the Cavi-Lipo and the recommended lifestyle protocol to “jump start” their slimming efforts as motivation for maintaining a healthier and slimmer lifestyle.

How long does it take to begin seeing results?

Some can see results immediately after the first treatment. Others can take up to a week to see results. Many actually see the difference after 4-6 sessions. Family and friends often notice the difference, too, within the 2 week Cavi-Lipo program.

Does it work on cellulite?

Yes, low frequency ultrasound (40kHz) generally works well on cellulite by focusing the “cavitation effect” on the superficial fat tissue. Best results are obtained when the ultrasound is applied in conjunction with the “radio frequency” (RF) treatment which helps to tighten and tone the skin.
