Cavitation

What is ultrasonic cavitation?

Ultrasound cavitation is a non-invasive method of reducing localized fat using ultrasound and radio frequency, which also has the benefit of skin tightening. The ultrasonic waves vibrate and break up the fat cells, which are then liquefied and eliminated through the lymphatic and urinary system.

Can you lose weight with ultrasonic cavitation?

Although this method of fat reduction can help to speed up the weight loss process when done in conjunction with diet and exercise, it is not a method to lose weight. Ultrasonic cavitation is used for body shaping, to reduce those stubborn fatty areas that don’t seem to budge regardless of diet or exercise. It is also used for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening.

What are the contraindications of ultrasonic cavitation?

There are no special contraindications, although those with cardiac and vascular diseases, pacemaker carriers, anyone with metal implants, cancer, immune problems, and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid undergoing it. Abdomen treatment during menstruation should be avoided. Always consult a doctor if you are unsure if this treatment is suitable for you. A doctor’s certificate may be required for certain individuals.

Are the results of ultrasonic cavitation similar to those of liposuction?

Yes, because it removes cellulite preventing this from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system.

The fat is a solid substance, how can it be eliminated through the urine?

Because ultrasonic cavitation causes an emulsification of the fat, converting it into a substance easy to eliminate through the urine and the lymphatic system.

Must you follow any guidelines before or after undergoing ultrasonic cavitation?

We recommend a high protein low carb diet and drink at least 1.5 liters of water before and after the session. Drinking water is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat. Exercising for 30 minutes after your treatment is recommended, however not essential.

How much time should elapse between sessions of ultrasonic cavitation?

The body eliminates the fat of a session in 72 hours, so we recommend an interval of 4 days between sessions.

How many sessions are usually needed?

Between 6 and 12 sessions depending on the person and the area being treated. You will see immediate results after the first session, and further results from the 3rd treatment onward.
