Ultrasonic or ultrasound cavitation is the use of ultrasound technology to break down fat cells below the skin. It is a non-surgical method of reducing cellulite and localized fat. This procedure involves applying pressure on fat cells through ultrasonic vibrations. The pressure is high enough to make the fat cells break down into a liquid form. The body can then get rid of it as waste through your urine.
What Is Ultrasound Cavitation And Its Benefits?
Ultrasonic cavitation tones the body using radio frequencies and low-frequency ultrasonic waves. These waves form bubbles around fat deposits under the skin. The bubbles then burst, breaking the fat deposits into the interstitial and the lymphatic systems where they are drained. The fat deposits are changed into glycerol and free fatty acids. Glycerol is then reused by the body while free fatty acids travel to the liver and are excreted as waste. The success measure of this procedure is how many inches you lose after treatment. If you want a tighter, more toned look, this might be the right procedure for you.
Some of the benefits are:
Uses ultrasound vibrations to break down localized fat cells under skin. Fat cells release from dermal layer and are absorbed into lymphatic system and bloodstream
Reduces body fat mass and cellulite
Noninvasive and nonsurgical body contouring procedure which is completely safe
Target areas: abdomen, hips, thighs, butt, upper arms
Fast and effective. Visible results after just one 30-50 min session just once a week
Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a safe FDA approved procedure. Since the procedure is non-invasive, there is no downtime needed. The destroyed fat cells do not grow back. The real and measurable results of ultrasonic cavitation can last with continued weight maintenance activities. You’ll be able to see how much circumference you’ve lost using a tape measure — or by simply looking in the mirror.
Ultrasonic cavitation works best on parts with localized fat. Such areas include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, hips, and upper arms. This procedure cannot be performed on body parts like the head, neck, and other bony areas of the body.
The results will also vary based on your health history, body type, and other unique factors. These factors affect not only the results you see but how long they’ll last. You might see results after just one treatment. However, most people will need a number of treatments before they get the results they’re hoping for.
Am I A Good Candidate For Fat Cavitation?
The best way to know you’re a candidate for ultrasound fat cavitation is to book an appointment. It is suited for anyone who is at a happy or ideal weight that has excess adipose tissue that they want to address. It is not a weight loss solution but a results-driven, non-surgical solution to addressing areas of unwanted, stubborn fat.
However, if the following conditions apply talk to your doctor prior to the procedure.
This treatment won’t work if you are obese. Instead, you should have a specific area(s) of the body where you’re hoping to reduce the appearance of fat.
People with bleeding problems shouldn’t do this treatment.
If you have a heart or liver disease, you may not be a good candidate.
If you’re nursing or pregnant, you should also avoid it.
Also, medical implants in the body will exclude you from treatment. These might include cochlear implants, pacemakers, and more.
Prior to the procedure we recommend a low-calorie diet and to minimize the intake of carbohydrates and fat during at least 24 hours before the session. This will help burn any fatty acid and glucose in your body
Understand And Commit To The Process
Losing weight with fat cavitation isn’t as simple as just stepping into an office and getting the procedure done. You’ll need to commit to keeping your side of the deal so you can get good results.
This includes eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, and exercising regularly before and after your treatments. The more water you drink, the easier it becomes for your body to get rid of the fatty acids that your fat cells turn into. Ultrasound fat cavitation empties out your fat cells, rather than destroying them like liposuction does.
In some ways, that’s a good thing. With liposuction, your body will continue to make fat. Since it can’t put new fat deposits in cells that have been destroyed, you may end up with fat deposits in new areas of your body. The fat will almost always come back, but with fat cavitation, at least it won’t appear where you least expect it.
To make your results last longer, you’ll need a great diet and plenty of regular exercise. If your calorie intake rises above your body’s chances to burn off fat, you’ll see the fat come back.
