Ultrasonic Cavitation Q & A

What is ultrasonic cavitation?

Ultrasonic cavitation is a body contouring technique used to eliminate a portion of targeted fat cells. The process works by using low-frequency sound waves to permanently destroy fat cells. It’s noninvasive and requires no special preparation and no recovery time and can reshape body areas that have not responded to weight loss or exercise. 

This approach can reduce fat in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Upper thighs
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Flanks
  • Beneath the chin

If you have lingering deposits of fat in these areas, ultrasonic cavitation can help you reach your fitness and appearance goals. 

How does ultrasonic cavitation work?

The process works by destroying your fat cells using ultrasonic sound waves. Those sound waves create heat and vibration, which disrupts the structural integrity of your fat cells. Once those cell walls are damaged, the stored fat drains out and the cells die and are gone forever. 

Once the liquefied fat enters your bloodstream, it is eliminated from your body by your lymphatic system. The damaged cells do not regenerate, which means there are fewer cells left in the treated areas.

What happens after ultrasonic cavitation?

In the days following your treatment, you’ll need to drink plenty of water to help flush the fat out of your system. Gently massaging the treatment area is also helpful in dispersing liquefied fat. 

You should also incorporate at least 30 minutes of exercise into your daily routine to boost your metabolism and hasten your fat reduction results. 

It takes time for the treated fat to clear your body, so be patient when looking for results. You’ll begin to see more refined body contouring in the weeks following your sessions, and the full results should be apparent within a few months. 

How many ultrasonic cavitation treatments do I need?

Most men and women achieve optimal results with 6-12 treatments. During your initial consultation, your practitioner will discuss your treatment goals and estimate the number of sessions you’ll need. 

Sessions can be performed as many as two times per week as long as there are at least three days between sessions. Your treatment schedule is planned during your initial visit and can be adjusted as needed.
