The applicator emits ultrasonic waves which disrupt stubborn fat cells causing them to leave the body via the lymphatic system.

Inch Loss

The treatment is often referred to as inch loss. As the name suggests, inch loss refers to the reduction in girth of the treated area, be that the abdomen, thighs or any other area that you require the fat reduction treatment.

Unlike Cryolipolysis, HD Ultrasound Cavitation can produce a reduction almost immediately* (see research).

How many sessions will I require?

The number of sessions that you need will depend on upon the density of fat cells, the area being treated and how well you respond to the treatment. Discounts are available when booking multiple sessions, which are best carried out 2-3 days apart.

Inch Loss

Can it be used with fat freezing?

It is safe to use both cavitation and Cryolipolysis as part of your fat reduction plan. The treatments must be conducted at least seven days after one another to avoid overly sensitising the skin.


You may experience some mild redness on the skin. We recommend that you apply moisturiser and do not sunbathe or use a tanning bed in the week following your treatment.

It is advisable to drink plenty of water following your treatments. Water helps to metabolise the glycerol and fatty acids that are released from the fat cells during the procedure.
