What's That You Hear? Ultrasounds!!!!

If you haven't experienced an ultrasound treatment, you must go this week and have a treatment done. Why should you as a business owner, technician or office worker rush out to get one? Aside from immediate relief of any pain you may be experiencing ( I don't know anyone who has zero muscle pain) you will see first hand how a small unit can bring in money.

Many people think of ultrasound as a physical therapy tool or simply of the picture an expectant parent shows off. While both are accurate, those aren't the only people who can benefit from it

My chiropractor has a unit that has both the ultrasound and the stim which I literally crave every week. It helps alleviate my neck pain and feels wonderful.

From a business standpoint, the units are cost effective and can bring in a whole new stream of business.
From a therapist/technician standpoint, it is an easy treatment to perform. The unit does the work and you check in with the client about the pressure and the intensity.
From a client standpoint, there's no downside. It is effective and feels good.
It's a winning combination all around.

There are different units available, here are a few:

Amrex U/20l Portable Ultrasound 
Chattanooga Intelect Transport Ultrasound Unit 
Intelect Legend Ultrasound 

You do need to use a gel while performing the treatment, which you can look at here:

Ultrasound Gel

My chiropractor always ends the ultrasound by putting one of my all time favorite products on...

Biofreeze

If you are looking to add a new treatment that is not difficult to perform, make your clients happy and bring in cash flow...ultrasound is worth checking out.

Ultrasonic Cavitation: The Ultimate Spa Toning Treatment

While watching TV on my downtime, I can't help but notice the surge in gym commercials and body fitness infomercials offering dream results with the use of their products. Not only do these infomercials offer to help people lose weight, but more importantly, tone their bodies. This is especially important as we have entered Resort and Pre-Beach season.

Many-a-time I have been
tempted to to make 3 easy payments of $39.95 in the hopes of firming and toning my butt, hips and thighs. The one major drawback to those products is the effort required to achieve results that are not guaranteed. Liposuction is another option, but few people can afford the expense or recovery downtime. But what if you were able to offer your clients a relaxing treatment in your spa that should yield results in just a few short treatments?

A new slimming and toning treatment that is taking the esthetics world by storm is Ultrasonic Cavitation. Considered to be non-surgical liposuction, this groundbreaking treatment specifically targets and liquefies the cellulite fat cells that even the most strenuous workouts cannot combat.

To understand how Ultrasonic Cavitation works, it is important to first know the characteristics of Cellulite. No matter the size of women, whether skinny or curvy, 80-90% of us experience cellulite, as it is mainly based upon our genetics. Fatty cells become deposited and trapped in an irregular fashion between tough collagen fibers and therefore produce the rippled effect. People with thinner skin, or those who have lost a significant amount of weight may actually see in increase in the amount of cellulite on their bodies.

So how is Ultrasonic Cavitation different?

Many current treatments for cellulite involve squeezing, pushing and suctioning the cellulite-affected areas - thus redistributing the fat cells rather than eliminating them. Cavitation is different in that it works to turn the fat into liquid, which is then eliminated from the body via urine. By placing the ultrasound handles on the affected areas and massaging them against the skin, bubbles are formed in the fat cells, which then emulsifies them. Once the fat becomes a liquid, it is then able to be expelled.

A standard procedure typically takes about 30 minutes, with some results being seen after as little as 1-3 treatments. A total of 10-12 treatments over the course of 40-48 days is recommended for your clients to achieve optimal results. It takes about 72 hours for the fat from each treatment to be expelled from the body, so it is suggested that treatments are scheduled every four days. It is also important to remind your clients to eat well and to drink at least a quart and a half before and after the procedure.

Ultrasonic Cavitation is an up-and-coming toning treatment that has the
ability to garner you as a spa owner some nice profits. From the cost of the treatment to the suggested retail products, you can seriously boost your bottom line.
