FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many sessions are needed to see results?
You many see results after your first session. Most clients require 4-12 sessions to achieve optimal results. This will depend on the size of the area to be treated, the cause of the cellulite, the age of it, etc. and the desired results.
How often can you get Cavi-Lipo Ultrasound Treatments?
Cavi-Lipo Treatments can be performed every 4 days.
Why is Cavi-Lipo Ultrasound Cavitation different from other treatments?
Laser technology was cutting edge when it was first introduced and soon after that was the cold technology. One heats the fat the other freezes it. Both are temporary solutions as they do eliminate the fat but unfortunately leave the fat cell intact. The Laser like “Zerona” and cold therapies like Zeltiq poke holes in the fat cells so the fat can be eliminated as a waste product and removed by the body. The issue is the fat cell remains and can later be filled again with fat. The other issue is these machines do not have an effect directly on tightening skin.
Ultrasound Cavitation not only works on the fat but also the fat cell. It is the closest we can get to liposuction without surgery. The cavitation process causes a “bubbling” of the fat cell to the point it literally pops or explodes and both the fat and cell are removed by the body as waste product. Once the fat cell is GONE you have permanent, instant changes.
With Cavi-Lipo Ultrasound we have a specifically patented handle that allows for pin-point directional drive of the ultrasound current to only the fat layer so we get faster results and due to this directional flow we also stimulate collagen yielding a skin tightening effect. The massager component is build in to the directional handle stimulating the lymphatics. The Cavi-Lipo Ultrasound Cavitation works 80-90% more effective then other Cavitation machines on the market. Combine this powerful cellulite destroyer, Manual Lymph Drainage techniques, Massage and Licensed Professionals and you have a winning formula!

Besides the pricing, why choose to go to Hands On instead of a physician's office or those that offer a perfect body?
Hands On not only has licensed professionals overseeing the work, but actually doing the work. We don't have "technicians." Our massage therapists and estheticians do what they do best! They went to school and practice their craft on bodies. Working on bodies is an "Art." We can help you reshape your body, slim down target areas and continue your daily activities without interruption. We are passion about what we do, we love what we do and more importantly, you will love what we do, too!
What else should I know? I'm tempted to try out this procedure at a place that offers a coupon through Groupon, Amazon Local Deals, Living Social, etc. The promotional offers sound almost to good to be true. And, the results sound astonishing! And, signing a commitment to them might just help me commit more to myself!
We don't offer Free Consults and we don't have you sign a contract. The simple truth is this... if you have cellulite (dimpled appearance of the skin), you can expect results. It is difficult to tell how many sessions will be needed until we see how your body responds. We treat you the way we would want to be treated. Our goal is to get you in and get you out as quickly as possible. And, we have found that it is best when you commit to yourself, not just to us.
Our prices are our prices always. They are not increased, so they can be decreased. All of our specials can be found on our specials page, email newsletters or through our cell phone app.
We do not use any products that reduce the "appearance" of cellulite. There are those that will use these gels during treatment. We believe this is misleading to the client. In addition, we ask that clients do not use any of these products during the course of their treatment so that we can monitor results properly.
I was told there is a newer model of the Cavi-Lipo that works better to help me towards a perfect body. Is that true?
There is only one model of Cavi-Lipo Ultrasound Cavitation. We have that model. There are those who claim that there is a "better" more select model. It's simply not true. We have been in practice since 1999. You can always count on Hands On to run an ethical practice and to keep it about you, not us! Without you, there would be no us! And besides that, it feels good to be good! So let us help you look good! Give us a call!
