What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound waves. The pulsed waves create bubbles in the liquid that surrounds fat cells, which expand, then implode. Because the delicate membranes of fat cells do not have the structural strength to withstand the vibrations and implosions, cavitation easily breaks the membranes, while sparing the stronger vascular, nervous and muscular tissue.

What happens to the released fat?
After breaking up of the walls of fat cells and emulsification of the solid fat content of the fat cells, triglyceride fluids and the disrupted cellular structure are released into the interstitial fluid which surrounds every fat cell. This fluid is separated by the body’s natural metabolism into glycerol and free fatty acids.
Water soluble glycerol is then absorbed by the circulatory system and used as an energy source, which is why we recommend not eating for two hours prior to treatment so that the body is ready for more energy, and for two hours after treatment so that the body will utilize the released glycerol.
In the meantime, the insoluble free fatty acids and cellular wastes are transported to the liver for normal processing of fatty acids and elimination of cellular wastes.

Fat is a solid substance. How is it eliminated?
Ultrasonic cavitation causes an emulsification or liquefaction of fatty triglyceride fluid, which is released and transported by the lymphatic system to the liver, to be processed for energy use or storage, or passed out of the body.

Is Ultrasonic Cavitation a safe treatment?
Yes. The therapist will go over the consent for Treatment with you before you start the session. It is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or need for post-operative therapy) and it allows for a full social life both before and after the sessions. Consult with your medical doctor if you or the therapist have any doubts.

How long has Ultrasonic Cavitation been around?
Cavitation in body and face sculpting was introduced for the first time in Milan in 2005. However, ultrasound cavitation has been used for other purposes in the medical field since the 1960s.

Is Ultrasonic Cavitation painful?
No. Cavitation is a painless treatment. You will experience a harmless high frequency buzzing in your inner ear.
Let your therapist know if you feel discomfort from the amount of pressure being used.
Mild redness may appear but it is not painful. The heat caused by the equipment is perfectly tolerable.

Can these treatments be performed on male and females?
Yes, of course.

Is it possible to lose weight with Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is not a method to lose weight but rather to lose inches and re-shape the body.
The treatment is used to reduce stubborn fatty pockets that just won’t go away with diet and exercise alone.
It is up to the client to lose weight. Most clients choose to use the loss of inches as motivation to modify their own diet and exercise lifestyle to meet their weight loss goals.
