Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation
Ultrasonic cavitation, also called ultrasonic lipolysis, is a body contouring treatment that is used to remove fat deposits under your skin.
Ultrasonic cavitation relies on ultrasound technology to break apart fat cells.
Ultrasound waves are sent deep into the layers of your skin, causing a disruptive vibration. Fat cells then break apart from each other and are dislodged from your dermal layers.
After a few days, the fat cells are absorbed by your lymphatic system and drained as waste from your body.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS ULTRASONIC CAVITATION?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a simple procedure that relies on sound waves to flush fat from the body instead of intensive surgery. Put simply, 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.
HOW DOES ULTRASONIC CAVITATION WORK?
During an ultrasonic cavitation procedure, noninvasive machines target specific body areas with low-frequency sound waves (they're 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.
The body is then able to process these fatty acids through the lymphatic system. 30 minutes of exercise following a treatment session increases the ability of the lymphatic system to flush the liquified fat more quickly.
DOES ULTRASONIC CAVITATION WORK?
Yes, but results may vary. Depending on your individual health history and body type, you may slim down more or less dramatically than others.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
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)
WILL IT TREAT CELLULITE?
Results vary from person to person, however many clients have experienced cellulite reduction following ultrasonic cavitation.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED? HOW OFTEN SHOULD I BE TREATED TO SEE RESULTS?
You may start to see results after the first session, however for optimum results between 8 and 12 sessions are needed. 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.
IS THIS PROCEDURE INVASIVE?
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MACHINES USED FOR ULTRASONIC CAVITATION? ARE THERE MAJOR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM?
"Ultrasonic cavitation" is a catchall term for noninvasive liposuction that works through low-frequency sound waves. Different spas and doctor's offices use different devices to perform their procedures. Though similar, the machines can differ when it comes to the precise frequency and concentration of the sound waves.
HOW LONG DO ULTRASONIC CAVITATION RESULTS LAST?
Ultrasonic cavitation does not destroy fat cells; rather, it empties them of their contents, which means the cells are capable of storing fat again. A balanced diet and exercise are the only ways to ensure lasting results.
Those who take in more calories than they burn will see their improvement start to decrease over time.
Think of using a balanced diet and exercise as a way to protect your investment with ultrasonic fat cavitation.
