Ultrasonic Cavitation: All the Questions You Need to Ask

Jul 15,2022

"It's difficult to lose weight," a brutal truth. It's easy to say something than to do it. It's true with weight reduction in particular. We may try to own a slim figure but fail at last. No worries. Ultrasonic cavitation machine has come to the rescue. This article will list all the possible questions you may want to know before you try an ultrasonic cavitation session.

Q: What is ultrasonic cavitation?

A: First and foremost, what is ultrasonic cavitation? Ultrasonic cavitation is often touted as an alternative to liposuction. It is another non-invasive body shaping method to reduce body fat. With this treatment, ultrasound translates fat cells into fatty acids and triglycerides. The body can then treat these substances, which cannot stay in the body as fat cells do, through the body like the lymphatic system.

However, ultrasonic cavitation is not technically a "fat reduction" procedure. With ultrasound fat cavitation,  you can measure your achievement by how many inches you lose after the treatment. It might be the proper procedure if you want a firmer, more toned look.

Q: Does ultrasonic cavitation effective?

A: Yes, ultrasonic fat cavitation provides actual, measurable results. You can check the outcomes with a tape measure or look in the mirror to see how much your girth has decreased.

However, remember that it only works in certain areas, and you won't see overnight results. Be patient as you will see the best results after a few weeks or months of treatment. Outcomes may vary depending on your health history, body size, and other factors. These factors affect the results you see and how long they last. You may only need one treatment to see results. However, most people require many treatments before acquiring the desired results.

Q: How long does it take to see the results of ultrasonic cavitation?

A: You can expect to see final results three months after your last treatment, but how quickly the results appear depends on how efficiently your body's lymphatic system flushes out damaged cells. Excretion will begin immediately after a session. Drinking plenty of water, developing a healthy diet, and exercising regularly will help speed up excretion.

Q: How long does the effect last?

A: Once fat cells are destroyed, they are gone forever—the result is long-lasting. If you keep your weight stable, the effect will be permanent. However, factors like hormone level and age may also be related to weight gain. As with any shaping treatment, you must maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to stop the remaining fat cells in a targeted area from expanding.

Q: Does it destroy fat cells?

A: Yes, ultrasonic cavitation destroys fat cells. The device vibrates cells with low-frequency sound waves until the cell walls burst. When the cell membrane ruptures, it causes the inside of the cell to be exposed to the lymphatic system or the immune system. When fat cells break down, they become free fatty acids, excreted as waste through the lymphatic system.

Q: Is ultrasonic cavitation safe?

A: Ultrasonic cavitation is a safe treatment. There are very few side effects. Some users may have tiny bruising or redness, but these symptoms will vanish. However, it also carries some risks, such as the formation of lumps, bumps, valleys, hills, or depressions in the treated area. If you are worried about those complications, speak to your doctor before a session. The treatment should be painless; most people describe it as calming and relaxing. However, some people may experience extreme discomfort and pain during the treatment. As always, look for an experienced supplier with state-of-the-art equipment to help keep you safe.

Q: Can ultrasonic cavitation remove cellulite?

A: Ultrasound cavitation is used to reduce cellulite, but its efficacy is often minimal. Cellulite forms when hard bands called septae tighten the skin, causing fat to swell in some areas and dimples in others. A fat-loss machine can help reduce the fat that builds up in the fat tracts. However, it has minimal effect on the fat tracts themselves. You will have a slight smoothing impact because some lumps are melting, but if the fat cells continue to, the area grows, and the appearance of the cellulite is expected to return.

Q: Does ultrasound cavitation tighten or loose skin?

A: It is not a skin tightening therapy. Current conventional external ultrasonic cavitation devices focus energy more profoundly in the fat layer than close to the skin, resulting in a temperature change of less than 1°C. The skin shrinks when heated, which is fat cavitation does not occur. Especially in elderly patients with poor collagen, elastin, and elasticity, fat reduction treatment can cause skin sagging.

If you're concerned about loose skin, you can combine a fat cavitation session with other supplementary treatments, which heats the skin to stimulate collagen production.

Q: How much does ultrasonic cavitation cost?

A: The average cost is $525, and the cost range is $100 - $2000. The price you pay will depend on the experience level of your provider, where they practice, how many treatments you will take, and which body areas you treat.

Fat cavitation is much less expensive than liposuction, which costs an average of $6,000 because it does not require anesthesia. It's also a faster, non-invasive procedure that doesn't require as much technical expertise. However, finding an experienced provider is still wise to ensure the best possible outcome and avoid risks.

Q: How many sessions can I have?

A: We recommend 6 up to 12 treatments followed by a 4-week break to allow your body to recover. There should be 72 hours between treatments.
