What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?

 Ultrasonic cavitation is a weight-loss treatment that uses low-frequency sound waves to burst fat cells,

which may result in lost inches on the treated areas and (ultimately) a slimmer figure. It’s been growing

in popularity over the last few years because while traditional liposuction requires surgery to remove

fat, this procedure doesn’t. Ultrasonic cavitation is a simple procedure that relies on sound waves to

flush fat from the body instead of intensive surgery.

How does it work?

During an ultrasonic cavitation procedure, noninvasive machines target specific body areas with low-

frequency sound waves (they are what put the “ultrasonic” in ”ultrasonic cavitation”) and, in some cases,

light suction. This process heats and vibrates the layer of fat cells below the skin’s surface. The pressure

eventually causes the fat cells to liquefy and release their contents into the bloodstream.

Proponents of the procedure believe that the body is then able to process these fatty acids through its

proverbial waste-disposal plant: the lymphatic system. Results can vary greatly from patient to patient.

However, you should see:

-Reduced circumference in the treated area (due to fat-cell release)

-An overall contoured appearance (due to a combination of the benefits listed above)

Although most practices that offer ultrasonic cavitation claim you’ll see results after the first session,

they also caution that between 8 and 12 sessions are needed for optimum results. The exact number of

treatments needed will vary due to factors such as age, weight, and the area being treated. Each

treatment should take about 30–50 minutes.
