Ultrasound Cavitation

Ultrasound Cavitation is a non-surgical, natural phenomenon based on low-frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound field when applied to the targeted area creates bubbles in the liquid that surrounds fat cells, which gradually grow and implode. Membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations so the effect of cavitation easily breaks them, while the vascular, nervous and muscular tissues are untouched 

Ultrasound Cavitation causes an emulsification of the solid fat substances, releasing the triglyceride fluid, which is easy to eliminate through the lymphatic system. After disruption and emulsification of fat cells, liquid which makes up the fat cells, in the form of triglycerides, is released into the fluid between the cells. This fluid is then metabolized. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as an energy source, whereas the insoluble, free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food.

The stimulation of the unit helps pump and move your own lymphatic system allowing your body to process this fat substance out. Over the course of 3-4 days your body starts to lose unwanted stubborn fat and you lose inches in the area that was targeted. Most clients start to see a difference in 3 treatments. This along with radiofrequency and vacuum massage allows us to get superior results.


Is Ultrasonic Cavitation a safe treatment?


It is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or need post-operative course) and it allows for a full social life both before and after the sessions. This procedure is totally safe.


How long has Ultrasonic Cavitation been around?

Cavitation in aesthetics was introduced for the first time in Milan in 2005. However, the phenomenon called cavitation has been around since the 60s. Is Ultrasonic Cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but does not cause pain. The patient experiences a very low heat caused by the use of the equipment which is perfectly tolerable.

Can these treatments be performed on male and female 

yes they both can . Which are the areas where treatment is more effective? All those areas with localized fat: thighs, abdomen and buttocks are the most appropriate but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body although we cannot treat the female breast.

Must you follow any guidelines before or after undergoing Ultrasonic Cavitation?

In order to achieve best results it’s recommend that the patient follows a low calorie diet and to drinks at least 2 liters of water before and after the session. In order to get optimum results it’s highly recommended to exercise the day of the treatment.

How many sessions are usually needed?

Generally most clients start to see a difference in 3 treatments. It's highly recommended to do more. Between 3, 6, 9 or 12 sessions are recommended. It’s highly recommended to do 9-12 treatments followed by our recommended protocol.
