Whether you call it ultrasonic treatment, lipo cavitation, or fat cavitation, this is ‘the’ treatment that works if you want to get rid of those ugly fat deposits in the abdomen, buttocks, or legs. Cavitation is the most revolutionary technique of dealing with excess body fat. This success is due to stunning results – you’ll see an immediate improvement after the first session; you may need from only 2 to 5 sessions in total to get the desired results.
Until recently, the only method available to instantly get rid of body fat was liposuction surgery. Instead, ultrasonic cavitation is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-frequency ultrasonic waves to deplete stubborn fat cells under the skin. There are no side effects or pain involved although, it may produce a slight redness of the skin which can last up to two hours in some people. Treatment allows for a full social life both before and after the sessions.
Cavitation is the repeated and controlled generation of micro vacuum bubbles in the fatty tissue followed by their implosion. The implosion damages the fat cells, reducing the localized adiposity.
The excess pressure to which the fat cells are exposed breaks down their membranes, changing the fat deposits’ physical state from solid to liquid. The fat in them –the triglycerides- becomes fragmented into diglycerides, which can be eliminated in the urine. Treatment sessions generally last 35 minutes, and the minimum suggested number of sessions is 6 to 10.
However, cavitation is not an alternative to eating a healthy diet and exercising. A low-calorie diet and the ingestion of at least two liters of water is recommended to produce the desired results. Moreover, a balanced diet is recommended to ensure durability and avoid the new appearance of cellulitis.
While waiting impatiently for summer to begin in earnest, we have been keeping a keen eye on what Mallorca’s most prestigious spas have to offer to prepare our skin properly and look our radiant best for the coming season.
Many body treatments involve massage with local olive oil, honey or damask rose extract, and other delicious ingredients. Other treatments are inspired by oriental practices and include plenty of ayurvedic, Thai, or Chinese massage.
But perhaps the most exclusive is the diamond magnetic treatment, available in only the best spas in the world. Now, while it may sound like the ultimate in bling (and yes, your skin does sparkle), it is in fact, based on an ancient therapy where the application of magnetic forces to the skin was found to be beneficial for blood circulation.
As its name suggests, the body is first exfoliated with a powder containing crushed diamonds which leaves the skin polished and luminous. The product is then removed with magnets, eliminating electromagnetic pollution and rebalancing and energizing the mind. In other words, you are left glowing both inside and out.
After all, as they say, diamonds ARE a girl’s best friend!
