As I am constantly looking for ways to help women look good and feel good about themselves, I jumped at this opportunity to review a method of losing inches without any surgery. It’s called Lipo-sculpt cavitation. Although it has been in existence for almost two years now, not a lot of people know about it nor have the guts to try it. I guess, for the risk taker, this is too “conservative” as liposuction would have more noticeable immediate results. And for the people who avoid taking the “untested” path, this concept of liposculpt cavitation seems so technical and deep.
It was 1:00 pm, a Saturday, when I got to the doctor’s clinic. I had to fill up a form, as I had no records in her clinic. The secretary was very pleasant. I asked her about the cavitation procedure, and she said that some of the patients, on their fourth visit had a very noticeable change already. With that statement, I was excited to try this out.
Finally, at 2:00 pm, the doctor called me in. She explained the procedure, and she was very thorough in explaining what Liposculpt Cavitation was. This is a non-surgical treatment where a machine, which is used to massage the chosen area, emits pulsating or continuous ultrasound waves. The machine is rotated and pushed against the skin (in my case, I chose my tummy area). The ultrasound waves target the stored fats/subcutaneous fats (under the skin) and causes them to burst. After the fat cells are broken down, they are eliminated out of the body through the lymphatic system. Your body will then remove the fat cells naturally out of your body.
While she was explaining, her assistant was drawing lines in my body and measuring me at the same time. The lines are to avoid hitting the bones in the ribcage area and the spinal cord. I was asked then to lie down, and the device was then rubbed against my tummy.
Now, how did it feel. You will hear “laser beam” like sounds and the funny thing was, you are the only one who will hear it. No one else in the room will! It was pretty cool and weird at the same time. These were high pitched sounds. Dra. Batac said these where the sounds made when the waves hit the cells.
Also, the device that touches your skin was a bit warm. The temperature was not distracting. After I was done, the doctor told me to hug my legs, to flush out the fats move it to the lymphatic system.
A normal procedure lasts 40 minutes at the most. The doctor advices to take the treatment just 1x a week. I read though that 2x a week is also safe, but she wants to stay on the safe side. There hasn’t been any conclusive studies yet, but no side effects are reported. In my case, I didn’t experience any side effect. I didn’t feel nauseous or anything like that. The doctor though stressed that a trained doctor or nurse should do this treatment, because there is a certain frequency of the waves that can be used so as not to be harmful to humans.
A treatment ranges from as low as Php 1000 – 3,000 per area per session. She also advices that the maximum number of parts per session would be one central (meaning the tummy area or back) and one peripheral (either the legs or arms or thighs). It cannot be all of these areas.
So what were the results? After 20 minutes of rubbing on the tummy area, I lost a total of 2-4 cm! I don’t know if this amazing for you, but I guess it was pretty impressive for me.
If you want to try Liposculpt Cavitation treatment (yes, it’s available in the Philippines), there are a lot of clinics offering this service. I have seen a couple in some daily deals sites.
