When it comes to our weight loss treatments, they form part of our Aesthetic division whereby we use the world leading and innovative combination of the latest technology available – Ultrasonic Cavitation, Radio Frequency and 635nm Diode Laser, combined with vacuum (lymph drainage) massage. There are many questions surrounding weight loss treatments and if they really work. We are here to put your mind at ease and give you the low down on each weight loss treatment we offer at Langaro:

Ultrasound Cavitation:

Ultrasound Cavitation is an exciting new use of technology for the performance of non-invasive body sculpturing. Physicians and therapists are using this incredible technology along with vacuum therapy to effectively remove unwanted fat AND cellulite, our treatments have been compared to liposuction but without any of the surgical drawbacks such as scarring, bleeding, infection, pain, no down-time for recovery and it is also far more affordable.


The best candidates for ultrasound cavitation removal are healthy men and women who are moderately overweight. When we go on “fad” diets, we leave our bodies feeling like it’s starving and although we may see results in the beginning, It wont last.

This is because as soon as you break your diet and go back into old eating habits, your weight will creep back on you and your body will pack on a few extra kilo’s to store up the next time it goes into survival mode.

Ultra Cavitation however, does not work this way. The machine uses high-frequency sound waves to disturb the fat cell walls, which causes the fat cells to “leak” their contents into the fluid spaces of your body. From there, The fat is disposed of naturally, being eliminated by your body’s own filtration system.

The results are visibly noticeable immediately, however the entire process can take several days, and you will continue to experience results during this time. You can safely receive Ultrasonic Cavitation treatments as often as every 3 days.  This all depends on your weight goals, how long the fat has been there, how desne the fat is and so on. At Langaro, our therapists will always do a consultation with you to see exactly what your wants and needs are as well as to determine exactly how many treatments you should need. Of course, the more frequently you receive treatments, the faster and more dramatic will be your results.

Please take note that you cannot have ultrasound cavitation if you are pregnant, breast feeding, have metal implants, have keloids, recent surgeries, heart disease, cancer, epilepsy, turberculosis, hemophilia or a compromised lymph system.


Ultrasonic Laser Liposuction Cavitation:

Ultrasonic Laser Liposuction Cavitation is the same process as Ultrasound Cavitation except it uses laser (light) heat to remove fat cells and ultrasound cavitation uses ultrasound to disrupt fat.


Radiofrequency Treatments:

RF or Radio frequency electromagnetic energy is safe, non-invasive and a pain-free way to tighten skin that may have lost some of it’s elasticity around the forehead, eyes, cheeks, jaw line, mouth and under the chin and neck. It is also an effective way to tighten skin on the body such as post birth tummy or someone who has lost a lot of weight and has loose skin.

It doesn’t damage the outer layers of skin (the epidermis) but it does however cause a specific type of micro trauma to the lower dermal layers of the skin which stimulates elastin and collagen production. With deep, controlled heating of the fatty layers under the skin, the effects of tissue tightening and increased blood circulation mean that fatty deposits are drained through the lymphatic system, reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Most people should see at least a mild improvement in their skin tone, with a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite and possible inch loss, with minimal risks and downtime.

Ultra Cryolipolysis:

Ultra Cryolipolysis is a procedure which uses cooling technology, is non-invasive and results in reduced fat minimization. Fat cells are more active to the effects of cold in comparison to the surrounding tissue. It causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without apparent damage to the overlying skin. The procedure is publicized as a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction. (to read the full blog on the benefits of Ultra Cryolipolysis click here)
