What Is Ultrasonic Cavitation and How Does It Work?
Ultrasonic Cavitation or Ultrasound Liposuction is a new, non-surgical fat removal procedure. This revolutionary procedure was designed in Europe. Because there is no surgery and no anesthesia, there is no hospital stay, no time off from work and no recovery time. Clients see immediate results and will continue to see results in the reduction of fat up to a week following the treatment.
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 an invasive procedure to remove fat, this procedure doesn’t.
The treatment uses cavitation technology which allows for non-surgical attack of inflexible fat deposits that no matter how much you diet and exercise, never seems to disappear.
Unlike a traditional tummy tuck or liposuction, in ultrasonic cavitation there are no knives, no anesthesia and no surgery. Ultrasonic cavitation is similar to mesotherapy or lipodissolve in that it is a treatment for cellulite called localized adiposity.
The most common problem areas are the buttocks, abdomen, love handles (flanks), saddle bags (thighs), upper arms, inner knees and male breasts. Body contouring offers a way to get your body back that requires no recovery times, leaves no scars and needs no anesthesia.
Ultrasonic Cavitation is also known as Fat Cavitation or Lipo Cavitation.
Men benefit from Ultrasonic Cavitation as well. Male sessions included therapy treatment for male breasts and love handles in clients who were considering a procedure for male chest fat removal known as Gynecomastia. After receiving Ultrasonic Cavitation, they were very pleased with the results and changed their mind about the other procedures.
Ultrasonic Cavitation is the perfect treatment for women who want to contour their body and regain their confidence. Most clients see an immediate change in their appearance after the first session, with optimum results after 2 to 5 sessions. While this is a non-surgical way to sculpt and contour your body, this is not a replacement to a healthy diet and regular exercise. Ultrasonic Cavitation will help you get back your confidence and improve your body.
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. 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.
What is Ultrasonic?
A MHz or Megahertz is 1,000,000 hertz and a rating of 40 KHz to 5 MHz is used in an ultrasonic treatment. This type of sound wave can destroy the fat cells without causing damage to any other tissues or organs.
Clients see results after the first two hour Ultrasonic Cavitation and RF Therapy.
Ultrasonic therapy forces a powerful sound wave to the fat cell membranes. The fat cell membrane succumbs to the pressure, is reduced to liquid and is expelled through the body’s normal metabolic method.
Ultrasonic Cavitation destroys fat cells at such a rate and in such a quantity that fat storage is significantly reduced or eliminated. Clients see the results and are pleased with the increase in their body’s fat cell metabolism.
Ultrasonic Cavitation Therapy
Ultrasonic cavitation therapy makes it possible to apply concentrated levels of ultrasonic energy to specific treatment areas. This type of therapy targets and destroys subcutaneous fat cells in the fat cell membranes through a series of microscopic implosions. Once the fat cell membrane (adipose tissue) is destroyed, the fat is discharged between the cells where they are turned into protein and then changed to free fatty acids and glycerol. Free fatty acids are moved to the liver where they decay and are removed from the body while water-soluble glycerol is transported to the circulatory system and used as energy.
Tri-polar Radio Frequency or RF
Tripolar RF metabolizes the large fat granules that were exploded by the first cavitation treatment. Heat forces collagen fibers to contract in the subcutaneous and dermis layers, which immediately tighten. New collagen is produced as Fibroblast metabolism is increased, creating a long term result of smoother and firmer skin.
Since RF energy affects the deeper dermal layers, the result is a lifted contour, a decrease in deep wrinkles, thicker and firmer skin. RF promotes new collagen protein which causes the original collagen protein to strengthen the skin.
Lipolysis (mono-polar Radio Frequency combined with cavitation), causes the remaining adipose tissue (fat cell membrane) to explode and forces the removal of triglycerides as well as a tightening of the skin.
The sub-dermis, where cellulite is found, is heated by the ultra power mono-polar radio frequency waves which cause a tightening and slimming appearance on cellulite tissues. Specifically, these currents:
Instantly shortens original collagen fibers, resulting in the appearance of lifted and tightened skin.
New collagen and elastin fibers are produced increasing a tightening of skin.
Fragile cells called adipocytes are stimulated to release fat into the bloodstream removing them.
Immediate and long-lasting results of cavitation therapy
After the first treatment, clients experience a reduction of several cm in circumference and added results after the next visit and longer. Age, metabolism, changes in hormones, medications, tissue structure and treatment area will have an impact on the results. To maintain the results it is important to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
Does the treatment hurt?
Most clients found the treatment to be very comfortable and trouble-free. Some clients experience warmth during the treatment and a small amount of noise discomfort, but there is no pain.
Specific guidelines for before and after the treatment
It is important to follow a low calorie and healthy diet and to drink 8 glasses of water a day before and after the treatment. Fat elimination is accelerated by the amount of water your drink therefore, water is key component to eliminate the fat.
Results of Ultrasonic Cavitation vs. Liposuction or Tummy Tuck?
The results of the Ultrasonic Cavitation are very similar to those of Liposuction and a Tummy Tuck as it safely (no damage to the vascular system) removes and prevents recurring cellulite in the treated areas. Ultrasonic Cavitation creates lipolysis of fatty acids from the fat cell membrane or adipocytes by the process of stable cavitation. Ultrasonic Cavitation increases cell penetration of the adipocytes. There is an increase in triglyceride flow and a destruction of the fibers. Since the liver metabolizes a part of the adipocytes and expels it in the urine, it is necessary to drink plenty of water before and after the treatment.
How many sessions are usually needed?
While you will see immediate results in the first session, it is necessary to have between 8 and 12 sessions for optimum results.
Benefits of Ultrasound Cavitation Liposuction Treatment:
Permanently removes fat cells on the:
“Love handles” or flanks
“Saddle bags” or thighs
Body contouring and reshaping
Lymph and blood circulation
Tightening of connective tissue
Increased effectiveness when combined with Lymph-Drainage Wave Six Treatment
No surgery, no knives, no pain
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 is the only way to ensure lasting results. Those who take in more calories than they burn will see their improvement start to decrease over time.
