Frequently Asked Questions


Some answers to some of our frequently asked questions.

Will Ultrasound Cavitation Non-Surgical “Liposuction” work for my body?

The Aesthetica Professional cavitation system is ideal for people who are dissatisfied with a certain area of fatty deposits but do not want to follow an invasive surgical treatment like liposuction. The most suitable are people who are looking for fat removal from a specific area such as the stomach, hips, thighs, legs, buttocks, or arms. The treatment does not necessarily result in overall weight loss, but results in improved shape & contour and size reduction in the treatment area.

If you are currently following a healthy diet or a good weight loss plan, results will be more significant and weight loss will more likely occur.

We will support you with this following treatment. Great results can be obtained for those who have up to 25 – 30 pounds or less to lose. Ultrasound Cavitation is ideal for those who have tried to shift the stubborn fatty bulges with diet or exercise and are aiming for a smoother and more balanced shape. Ultrasound Cavitation Liposuction” and RF body contouring is not a treatment for morbid obesity (BMI of 30 or more) nor is it a weight loss cure. If a significant amount of surplus fat exists, we recommend successfully dieting before beginning the treatment program. Our consultations will help you decide whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedures.

Does it work?

Ultrasound cavitation produces effective results. There are many clinical papers to support this. Please ask your consultant if you would like to see the evidence.

The procedure has been available to everyone for a decade. It is proven to be very safe, with clinical papers to support this. It is also approved across UK and Europe with CE Mark.

Is the procedure painful?

What is the procedure?

You will have a full consultation with your Consultant. Once we have identified the problem area, we will apply a gel to the targeted area. Your treatment will usually be about 40 minutes long, depending on the area chosen and the density of the fatty tissue. During the session, you can relax, chat to your therapist, or catch up on your emails before returning to your normal routine.

Will I see instant results?

You will leave the clinic, with your skin looking much better, and cellulite reduced, with immediate inch loss (anywhere between 1cm -5cm loss) – “losing a dress size in your lunch time – but you will also be motivated, and happy with your new look. This will spur you on to maintain your own journey to your best self. We advise that you follow our simple guidelines to maintain results, and you will be given a booklet to help you.

Are the results long lasting?

“Is it a quick fix?” – “Will I put weight back on? The removal of the liquid content consisting of fatty acids and triglycerides allows fat cells to decrease in size. This means that if an individual has an excessive calorie intake, the cells will increase in size again. It is, therefore, important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after your treatment. At Aesthetica Professional, we will provide you with a wealth of nutritional information and aftercare advice, supporting you every step of the way. We can assure you that you will not be wasting your money.

Is the investment worth it?

Before now, this procedure was only delivered in salons who are able to charge high amounts of money. Here at APL, we want to give you a “hand up” and support you on a path to become “your Best Self”, so our prices are lower than you would expect. Additionally, you will be given nutritional advice as part of our service to you.

How many sessions?

Once you have had your first treatment and you leave the salon, the treatment keeps working. The minimum number of sessions recommended is between 6 – 12 . Cavitation may require several sessions with a minimum time of 72 hours between sessions. If you are able to return within 72 hours, this will help to prevent the fat from reabsorbing. Our consultants are dedicated to helping you to achieve your best results, so once they have understood your requirements, they will put together a plan to help you achieve this.

Will cavitation wok on loose skin/fat?

Yes, low-frequency ultrasound will work very well on cellulite. However, for best results, cavitation is used alongside Radio Frequency treatment. This means that clients will be able to lose fat while tightening the skin layers, creating smoother, healthier skin.

How long to recover?

The treatment methods are 100% non-invasive, which means no scalpels, needles, anaesthetics or sedation. With none of these limitations imposed, you will be able to resume your normal routine immediately after treatment.

Is it suitable for everyone?

Patients should be generally fit and healthy and are with 10% -15% of their ideal weight. Often we are seeking spot-fat -reduction in targeted areas. Patience is the key, as results are gradual and may take a few weeks. It becomes a natural transformation. All patients must be over 18 years old.
