Cavitation / Inch Loss

Our HD Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment at VIVO Clinic Oxford is a safe and affordable way to target stubborn areas of fat. The process is often referred to as “inch loss”, because of the rapidity at which great results can usually be seen*.

The cavitation treatment, which lasts approximately thirty minutes, one of our practitioners will gently massage the treatment area with the applicator from our high definition ultrasound machine.

The ultrasonic frequencies are tuned to disrupt stubborn fat cells, causing them to die. Results can normally be seen almost straight away*.

Cavitation can be used in parallel to our HD Lipo fat freezing treatment, for optimum fat loss. VIVO Clinic Oxford recommends that you book a free phone consultation so that we can recommend the best course of treatment to suit your goals. This will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you might have about cavitation and our other treatments.

Cavitation Sessions

Typically, our clients experience a 1-5cm reduction to the treated area*. The number of cavitation sessions that you require depends on the surface area that you need to be treated, as well as the density of your fat cells. During your consultation, we will discuss your requirements and let you know how many sessions we recommend. If more than one ultrasound treatment is required, we provide a discount for multiple sessions. We also offer cavitation at a discounted rate, when combined with our HD Lipo Freeze procedure.

After Care

Do not sunbathe or using a tanning bed during the week proceeding your treatment as this can cause unnecessary skin irritation. Following the session, we recommend that you drink plenty of water as this will help metabolise the glycerol and fatty acids released from the fat cells.

Ultrasound works best when combined with a healthy lifestyle.
