Ultrasonic or ultrasound cavitation

Ultrasonic or ultrasound cavitation is the procedure that uses ultrasound technology to
break down fat cells and cellulite below the skin without affecting nearby organs and cells.
Then the fat cells are absorbed into your body by your lymphatic system. The body can get rid
of them by wasting through your urine. Ultrasonic cavitation is a non-surgical method of
reducing cellulite and localized fat. This procedure is a safer alternative to surgical options and
different than other similar treatments, like ultrasound liposuction, because it does not require
any incisions. So, the recovery is easier than the recovery of other similar treatments and the
results might be less noticeable.

Ultrasonic cavitation uses radio frequencies and low-frequency ultrasonic waves to break
apart fat cells by going deep into the layers of your skin and causing a disruptive vibration.
These waves form bubbles around fat deposits under the skin. Then the bubbles burst, breaking
the fat deposits into the interstitial and the lymphatic systems. 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.

Treatments generally take between 40 minutes to an hour. For maximum effectiveness,
multiple treatments on the same area are recommended. Results will depend on the condition
of the eliminated fat, including how long it has existed and how dense it is. Generally, after the
first treatment, fat loses 1 to 2 inches and loses up to 2 inches after each subsequent
treatment. And ultrasonic cavitation has a firming effect on the skin and muscle tissue, including
loose skin from previous weight loss efforts. But actual results will vary.

Although ultrasonic cavitation is considered a low-risk and painless treatment for most
people, there are also common side effects include a little pain, redness, bruising and
headache. In some cases, the skin will not absorb the fat evenly after it breaks down. There can
be lumps, bumps, and valleys on your skin after ultrasonic cavitation treatment.
