Lipo Cavitation and Radio Frequency Slimming
Ever since I announced the upcoming launch our latest services at Zenbiosis- the Lipo Cavitation and Radio Frequency Body Sculpting, my inbox has been flooded with inquiries about the procedure. To address the concerns of those interested in getting into that bikini-ready body in time for summer, I am writing this article to educate both my readers and patients regarding the slimming technology we are offering. Hopefully, this can enlighten you more on what these non-surgical ways of shaping up can do for you even I don’t get to reply to your queries.
With the risks that come along surgery (not to mention cost), Liposuction is hardly an option for some. Although it is the fastest way to lose the bulge, the possible complications scare the wits out of potential patients. Over the years, non-invasive slimming procedures have been crafted to be a feasible alternative for liposuction. Currently, Lipo Cavitation is one of these body sculpting technologies that is widely offered in clinics and medical spas.
Lipo Cavitation employs ultrasound to break down stubborn fats located in the abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks and other problem areas. The ultrasound waves vibrate to selectively target fat cells, disrupt its membrane, eventually “exploding” them. When the triglycerides are released, they are broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol. The free fatty acids bind to albumin, transported to the liver for metabolism. Glycerol, on the other hand, being water-soluble, is drained through the lymphatics. Thus, lymphatic massage is done after the cavitation procedure to help eliminate the cracked fats.
What to expect:
The procedure is similar to undergoing a diagnostic ultrasound except that there’s no monitor to view the internal organs and an acoustic feedback may be heard by the patient, which some may find annoying. Otherwise, it painless, with no down time.
Radio Frequency (RF) is a form of electromagnetic energy that is used to heat skin and promote tissue tightening. The heat wave penetrates the fatty layer to help melt fats and tighten the sagging skin through the stimulation of collagen formation. The process likewise facilitates the drainage of lysed fats through the lymphatics. RF, when coupled with cavitation improves your chances of slimming down without surgery.
What to Expect
Depending on the type of electrodes used, heat may be felt, which should be tolerable. Always inform your doctor or the therapist performing the procedure if the heat causing too much discomfort.

Are Lipo Cavitation and Radio Frequency for you?
These procedures are ideal for those people with localized fats that persist despite adequate diet and exercise. Although they offer hope for the obese, they are not miracle procedures to deflate you instantly. Some patients lose around 1/2 inch to 3 inches right after one treatment, but multiple sessions are recommended to get you closer to your goals.
How Frequent ?
As much as you’d like to trim down fast, it cannot be done everyday. Since the dissolved fats are absorbed through the lymphatics, give it time to be properly processed by your liver and kidneys. At least 4 to 5 sessions are needed to see measurement changes, and 8 sessions are the maximum number of sessions in a cycle. At Zenbiosis Medical and Aesthetic Clinic, we recommend once a week interval.
Post Procedure Tips
Drinking water before and after the session is encouraged to hasten the elimination of dissolved fats from the body. Slurping down cold drinks is to be avoided for at least 24 to 72 hours after . Exercise or brisk walking for the next 3 days is highly recommended to help with the burning of fats. Avoid eating oily food and drinking alcohol for the next 3 days to avoid overworking your liver.
