After puberty, fat cells remain constant in number and change their size and volume according to the amount of fat the body stores.
This fat often assumes abnormal proportions in areas such as thighs, hips, stomach and arms. Non-invasive Ultrasonic Lipo-Cavitation uses ultrasound waves to break down this excess fat. Unlike surgical lipo-suction there is no pain, incisions or recovery time.
The ultrasonic energy is delivered through the skin surface. This treatment is safe and suitable for men and women who want effective removal of excess fat without surgery. The client resumes normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Ultrasonic Lipo-cavitation course includes:
Safe and effective methods of working when carrying out treatments:
- Health and safety
- Data Protection Act
- Client modesty, privacy and confidentiality
- Sterilisation methods
- Equipment set up and Maintenance
Anatomy and Physiology, and other science relevant to the treatment:
- What is Ultrasonic Lipo-Cavitation
- Fat evacuation journey
- Body characteristics
- Types of fat

Our courses are suitable for Beauty Therapists with the suitable pre-requisites (Level 3 Beauty or equivalent) and Aesthetic practitioners
NB: We expect students to have read the course materials fully prior to attending the onsite course at the Academy of Advanced Beauty
In order to graduate from all of our courses, students will need to pass a final written examination to assess their knowledge and understanding, and to pass a practical observation performing the treatment in full, including client consultation and aftercare. For Level 4 courses, after having completed the practical session at the Academy, students will be asked to complete four case studies and a 5,000-word assignment in order to complete the course
Level 4 Accredited Course certificates will be issued externally. For our Short Courses, we will provide an Academy of Advanced Beauty Diploma
The Ultrasonic Lipo-Cavitation Level 4 accredited course carries 8 credits and will qualify you for insurance cover. Some of these credits can be transferred to other courses if the subject matter overlaps. For example, if you have studied the necessary Health and Safety legislation in the Aesthetics sector, you will not need to cover this in the same amount of detail for any additional course which covers this same material
Our short courses, for those wish to learn more about the treatments without gaining an accredited Level 4 course, are two days in duration
Our Level 4 course is based on core knowledge taught on the short course but in addition includes a substantial theory component which explores the science behind the treatment further, and comprises of a three-day practical training session (rather than two days for the short course) where you will be asked to demonstrate your competence in the treatment through a series of assessments and exams
In the course, we will cover how to prepare for and carry out treatments safely, covering necessary legislation, core knowledge and science behind the treatment as well as how best to handle the equipment and maximise treatment results.
In order to graduate from all of our courses, delegates will need to pass a final written examination to assess their knowledge and understanding, and to pass a practical observation performing the treatment in full, including client consultation and aftercare.

OUR DELEGATES SAY
This course was very informative and has allowed me to expand my range of treatments. Barbara is far more knowledgeable than any trainer I have previously worked with and I left feeling confident to perform the treatment on my clients. Highly Recommended
I want to thank you for the brilliant Ultrasonic Lipo-Cavitation Course that I did with you recently. It was so helpful and insurable as well which was vital for my business.
I’ve done many therapy courses over the last few years and they have varied from poorly constructed teach-ins designed to make money for the teacher, to sound clinically based tutorials. The latter are few and far between and good therapy teaching is rare in my experience.
I have to say that your course was probably the best I have done. Your clinical and technical knowledge is outstanding and your practical teaching is superb. You do so much more than just pass on knowledge to justify giving a certificate. You have that rare gift of being a highly competent teacher and also a very good encourager.
It means that I can now do these treatments safely and profitably, with complete confidence.
Thanks once again for such a good course and so enjoyable an experience too! I would highly recommend your courses to anybody, without hesitation.
The course material was sent in advance for revision and extreme effort was put in place to ensure the course syllabus was fully addressed and revised on the training days. There was ample opportunity for practical sessions to get hands on practice and all questions were addressed with opportunity for further support after the course. I highly recommend training at this academy and look forward to participating in future courses
I was so pleased to learn about Radio Frequency. It looks like a therapy I will enjoy. Tips about the equipment and products was useful.
Very good manuals and pre-course support. Very comprehensive treatment practice. Got to use my own machine which was helpful.
Rate: A – Excellent/ A – Excellent
Barbara was so knowledgeable, helpful and patient that I was filled with confidence. The atmosphere was relaxed without being lax as there was so much work to cover.
It is absolutely essential to read the education brochure beforehand as these too are clear and precise and made the days studies run smoothly.
I cannot praise Barbara enough, she was professional yet still made me feel at ease. She is a mine of beauty and wellbeing information that I felt I wanted to spend more time there. Barbara has made it clear that her students can call her at any time for support and with any queries we may have.
I wish to do another course and without a doubt, I will return to Barbara Freytag.
Thank you for having me in my desired course. It was a wonderful experience to take part in the course(ultrasound lipocavitation and RF). Your friendly attitude made me feel like home. I really liked your relaxed teaching method. The course structure and materials was easy to understand and easily laid out. It was a great help and you provided hand-outs about the course before hand. It was a great time saver and gave me an opportunity to prepare before coming to the course. Due to my medical background, I expected the course to be a breeze but it was extremely well researched and challenging. You provided me enough time for theory and practical sessions. In the practical sessions, you provided wonderful people for a great hands on treatment. It gave me so much confidence to carry out treatments during the course and after as well. In the past, I’ve done some other courses where I had to arrange models for practice and top of that I have to pay extra money to carry out treatments. The course was organised at a time which was very convenient for me otherwise it would’ve been nearly impossible for me to attend. The location was great, it was extremely rural and the vintage interior made it a very desirable place to visit and made the experience a lot more special. I would love to visit again and again.”
I would like to thank you and Hans for accommodating me on one of the most enjoyable courses that I have ever experienced in my 30 years of medicine. I would admit that the course was also one of the most grueling that I have attended with almost 10 hours of intense studying every day for three days and topped off with a four hour examination at the end. However having successfully completed the course I feel extremely knowledgeable about the theoretical and practical aspects of radiofrequency and ultrasonic lipocavitation, as well as the complimentary therapies of cryolipolysis and pressotherapy. I thus feel confident explaining these therapies to my clients, carrying out the treatments in a safe manner, discussing the aftercare and answering any questions that may arise related to the treatments. I certainly look forward to attending further courses in the future in order to further expand my knowledge base and experience with these advanced aesthetic procedures.
Outstanding course and really enjoyable .The manuals were very comprehensive and readable and the practicals and onsite training were excellent .I thoroughly recommend these professional courses to doctors and thank Barbara for sharing her expertise, skills and knowledge
Barbara tutored me for a 2 day Dipolma in Radio Frequency & Ultrasonic Cavitation. I learnt so much in a short space of time and the practical sessions have made a tremondous differnce to my confidence at the end of the course. I am very grateful to her and would recommend her without hesitaiion. She is highly knowledgeable in her subject area and teaches very well.
Thank you for being such a fantastic host and trainer, everything was explained clearly and factually on the course.
As an individual you really put me at ease. The training itself was very thorough and aimed at a level that we could understand and relate to from a health professional prospective.
We throughly enjoyed the lessons, especially the practicals!
The certificates are professionally presented and of a superior quality.
I would highly recommend Barbara (AAA).
Many thanks again and hope to see you soon!
