Ultrasound Cavitation for Inch Loss
If you are looking to reduce the circumference of your thighs, hips, stomach or get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that won’t shift no matter how much you diet and exercise, then Skin Tech Clinic can help you.
Our 3D Lipo award winning technology helps you sculpt your areas of concern. During cavitation, fat cells are instantly and permanently broken down in your area of concern.
Cavitation is most effective at treating larger areas, so if you are looking for leaner thighs, to get rid of love handles or to lose inches from your waist, then cavitation is for you.
How does it work?
Cavitation delivers a focused wave of ultrasound to the fat layer. The power of the vibration from the ultrasound wave creates a build up of pressure in the fat cell. It continues to build until the fat cell membrane can no longer withstand this pressure and the fat cell wall disintegrates without causing damage to any other cells or tissues.
The triglycerides are released from the cells and flow into the intra-cellular space where they are enzymatically changed into free fatty acids and glycerol.
Water-soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as an energy source.
Insoluble free fatty acids are transported to and processed by the liver.
The more water you drink, the better your body will be at flushing these out!
Frequently Asked Questions
Here the answers to some common questions relating the treatment.
What does it feel like?
The treatment is non-invasive and painless. You may feel a warming sensation on the area being treated and a slight feeling of vibration in the fat layer.
There is also a slight ringing in the ears caused by the ultrasound waves passing through your tissues. It is completely safe, normal and stops as soon as the cavitation head is removed.
Are there any side effects?
After cavitation, the triglycerides are removed naturally by the body. The only side effects may be that you feel a little thirsty as the body wants to flush these waste products from the body. So drink 2 litres of water a day for 5-7 days after treatment.
You may have some redness around the treated area and mild bruising, both which are very normal, temporary and will subside.
When will I see results?
You may notice immediate visible inch loss after your treatment. The results continue as the body continues to get rid of fat over the next 5 days.
We recommend a course of 6-8 treatments to get more dramatic results. It is important that your expectations are realistic.
We are reluctant to give one off treatments as results (1-3cm loss) will not be as noticeable. Therefore, in the interest of client satisfaction, we recommend that you have 6-8 treatments.
The results you see on the gallery page are real clients with real results. We are results driven and strive to help you get the body you want. However, each person’s body will react differently and so we cannot guarantee what your results will be.
In order for you to get the results you want, your treatment time is tailored to suit you. Your treatments will be either 60 min or 90 min, depending on your needs and concerns. A larger surface area will need more treatment time. A course of 6-8 is recommended for best results.
Are the results permanent?
Results will be permanent or long-lasting as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you gain weight after the treatment, it will be all over your body and not just in that area as fat cells have been removed from that area.
It is good to see Cavitation as part of a bigger picture, where you are committed to becoming healthier, have a good diet, don’t drink regularly to excess and take some regular exercise as well as ensuring your body is well hydrated.
Is Cavitation suitable for me?
Most people can be treated with cavitation but we always recommend you have a consultation with a trained and experienced practitioner to discuss your concerns, expectations and medical background.
It is important you feel confident that you have chosen a treatment that is right for you.

Ultrasound Cavitation Prices
Cavitation is world renowned for breaking down fat cells instantly. Your body processes these lipids out of the body over the next 5-7 days. The more sessions you have the more inch loss you will see. 6-8 sessions are recommended. Inch loss will be a focus in this cavitation session, however, skin tightening or cellulite removal can also be worked on. Only 45 minutes of cavitation is recommended per week as to not overload the liver with lipids, therefore, 60 mins and 90 mins will be in conjunction with other treatments such as skin tightening and cellulite reduction.
