Cavitation / Ultrasound
Cavitation is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasonic waves to break down and eliminate unwanted fat cells in the body.
Cavitation / Ultrasound
CAVITATION / Low-frequency ultrasound is mechanical vibration and disruption of fat cells, waste fat is expelled from the cells and then eliminated through the metabolism.
Its effect is generated by the ultrasound with frequency. Our auditory nerve should not be able to feel it at all while it penetrates our body.
Cavitation ultrasound is a popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity in recent years for its ability to reduce unwanted fat and improve body contour. In this blog post, we'll explore what cavitation ultrasound is, how it works, and its benefits and risks.
What is cavitation ultrasound?
Cavitation ultrasound is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasonic waves to break down and eliminate unwanted fat cells in the body. This procedure is often used to target stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, such as the thighs, hips, and abdomen.
How does cavitation ultrasound work?
During a cavitation ultrasound procedure, a handheld device is applied to the skin that emits high-frequency sound waves. These sound waves penetrate the skin and target the fat cells beneath the surface. The sound waves create vibrations within the fat cells, causing them to break down and release their contents. The body then eliminates these contents through the lymphatic system.
What are the benefits of cavitation ultrasound?
Cavitation ultrasound has several benefits, including:
Non-invasive: Cavitation ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure that does not require any incisions or anesthesia, making it a safer alternative to surgical procedures such as liposuction.
Quick and painless: The procedure is quick, typically lasting between 30 minutes to an hour, and is painless. Many patients report feeling a mild warming sensation during the procedure.
Improved body contour: Cavitation ultrasound can help to improve body contour by reducing unwanted fat in specific areas, resulting in a more toned and sculpted appearance.
Minimal downtime: There is little to no downtime required after a cavitation ultrasound procedure, allowing patients to return to their daily activities immediately.
The ultrasound can generate high-frequency (i.e. 40kHz) micro-vibration, but this has no effect until it penetrates to the fat tissue. The sound wave micro vibration among the fat cells can cause resonance to the fat cells membrane but the fat cells membrane can't stand with such high-frequency micro vibration so it starts to corrupt--this is how the ultrasound breaks the fat cells. This resonance is so effective that it causes numerous "micro vacuums" among the fat cells, which contributes to destroying the fat cell membrane further.
Usually from the first session the size reduction and firmer skin are obvious but depending on the area dimension you might need up to 6 sessions to be satisfied with the results.
