Groupon finds out more about the ultrasound cavitation treatment at Skin Like Silk.
What is ultrasound cavitation?
Cavitation therapy features low level ultrasound waves and aims to revitalise figures when used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle. A high-tech device is moved over the target area, which is designed to sculpt the body by reducing subcutaneous fat thickness.
What happens at the sessions?
Initially, customers will meet the therapist for a consultation and body composition analysis. They'll establish suitability and choose the area of the body that they'd like to treat. Each session is also teamed with a session of pressotherapy. Sessions are recommended to be two to seven days apart.
Which areas can be targeted?
The treatment works well on areas with localised fat such as the tummy, buttocks, thighs and hip areas. With areas like the buttocks or thighs, the treatment is split equally between each side.
What about aftercare?
Clients are advised to drink at least 1.5 litres of water before and after the session. They must then carry out cardiovascular exercise immediately afterwards; for example, go for a light run or brisk jog.
Skin Like Silk offers a range of high-tech cosmetic beauty treatments at clinics in Harley Street, Candem and Chelsea. Some of these include laser hair removal, body sculpting, and IPL.
