What is Ultrasonic Cavitation? Ultrasonic cavitation, also known as ultrasound cavitation, cavi-lipo or simply ultra cavitation, is a less invasive liposuction alternative that uses ultrasonic waves that separate fat cells for removal from the body. The treatment was first introduced in Milan, Italy in 2005, and gained much popularity in Europe. Today, it’s gaining steam in the U.S. for reducing circumference in the waist, upper arm, thighs, hips, chin, back or belly. It’s classified as a circumferential reduction treatment, and not a fat reduction treatment.
What happens during the treatment?
During treatment, esthetician or massage therapist will use non-invasive machines to target areas of the body with low-frequency ultrasound waves. The waves penetrate the skin and create bubbles around the fat deposit, which then burst, causing the body to get rid of them naturally through urine and the lymphatic system. During a series of ultrasound cavitation treatments, fat is turned into free fatty acids, which are easier for the body to get rid of it.
What to expect?
Clients generally report feeling no pain and no heat during their treatment session. They will occasionally report a slight humming, that’s because the sound waves vibrate your inner ear and it translates into a buzz. Because of this, there’s virtually no downtime and very few side effects associated with the treatment. Some patients even report that the treatment is relatively relaxing. They felt like they could read a book or nap during treatment! For the best results, most patients require between 10 and 12 treatments, but you’ll see up to one to five centimeters of circumference reduction within five treatments. Each treatment session lasts for around 30 to 50 minutes. To get the most out of your treatments, doctors recommend drinking water, maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly in-between sessions.
For the best results, most patients require between 10 and 12 treatments, but you’ll see up to 1/2 of an inch to 4 inches of circumference reduction within the first treatments. Each treatment session lasts for around 30 minutes.
How does ultrasonic cavitation work?
Ultrasonic refers to sound frequency. An Ultrasonic Cavitation hand-piece will make a sound we cannot hear while it is vibrating. We measure the vibration times per second as sound frequency and refer to this as Hertz. Humans can hear from 20 hertz to 20,000 hertz. We are unable to hear anything above or below these levels. Therefore soundwaves with a frequency above 20,000 hertz we call Ultrasonic. A Megahertz is 1,000,000 hertz; we refer to as MHz. Usually, an ultrasonic frequency of 1MHz to 5MHz is used for various medical treatments. It is highly penetrative and directional. The vibration of ion (positive and negative alternation of sound waves) produces a strong wave of pressure to fat cell membranes. Usually, a fat cell membrane cannot withstand this pressure, it will explode into the liquid content. This liquid product leaves the body through the normal channels of the body’s metabolism. Ultrasonic Cavitation customers have seen results which we believe are due to the quantity of fat cells being destroyed and therefore reduced, and the body’s fat cell metabolism is improved. Destroying these fat cells can remove the body’s environment for fat storage.
Is Ultrasonic Cavitation a safe procedure?
Yes, it is a safe, comfortable, and non-invasive procedure with virtually no side effects. It does not require anesthesia, leaves no scars and does not require any post-treatment. The ultrasound energy is designed to target fatty tissues beneath the skin only and does not affect the blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues.
What long-term results can I expect with ultrasonic cavitation?
You can achieve ‘volume reduction’ of fatty tissues and ‘toning of the body’. The results are gradual over a number of weeks as your body clears the broken down fatty tissues. It is not uncommon to achieve up to 4 inches reduction by the end of the course of treatments. The results can be long lasting provided you follow a healthy diet and exercise program.
How long does it last? Doctors who perform ultrasound liposuction say that the fat cells treated with low-frequency sound waves won’t return, so they do provide a permanent effect. It’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise to keep the fat off. However, it is very easy to deposit fat again into the tissues if one over-eats, consumes too much alcohol or doesn’t exercise. Ultimately the result may vary depending on the individual’s different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medication, and changes in hormones.
Can I lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Cavitation is not a treatment for obesity nor is it a weight loss procedure. Rather is a method for ‘reshaping’ and ‘toning’ the body. It is particularly intended to reduce localized fat tissues which are resistant to exercise around the abdomen (love handles), buttocks, and thighs (saddle bags), that won’t easily go away by simple dieting and exercise.
Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation is a non-surgical treatment precisely designed with sound waves and ultimately eliminate unwanted fat cells permanently and safely. The Beautiful You Body Sculpting procedure is FDA-cleared and is specially constructed for treating and targeting areas such as the abdomen or that “muffin top,” the flanks (which are more commonly referred to as love handles) as well as the inner and outer thighs. One of the incredible benefits of Ultrasonic Cavitation is that it doesn’t demand any downtime from you. You can pick right back up where your day left off. With the help Ultrasonic Cavitation, you can finally obtain a figure that is leaner, more toned and sculpted to your unique contours.
