The Biocavity-Ultrasound Cavitation really works

In the spirit of not feeling like a behemoth in a bikini, Holly Sands books in for Biocavity-Ultrasound Cavitation.

The promise
This non-invasive, non-surgical treatment claims to break your fat cells down into liquid and reduce the circumference of the targeted area.

Step by step
The session begins with a measuring session, along with photos for some ‘before’ shots to compare another set taken afterwards. We’re warned that once the treatment begins, we’ll hear a high-pitched noise from the radiofrequency. Despite the warning, it’s still a shock, and we find ourselves wincing as we spend an hour listening to what sounds like someone trying to tune in a radio in our head. Fortunately, the treatment itself is not painful – more like a vigorous massage. Afterwards, we spend 20 minutes on a vibrating platform similar to a Power Plate.

The result

While we can’t visibly see a difference, the measurements reveal we’ve lost 2cm around our waist. We’re instructed to drink lots of water and maintain a healthy diet so as not to throw away the results.

Pros
• It does seem to have an effect, even if only in the short term.

Cons

• Multiple sessions are recommended, and it’s not cheap.
• The noise throughout is unpleasant.
