Today, losing weight is not just a goal; it has become a way of life. When diet and exercise don't work, many patients turn to new ways to reduce weight. One such treatment is ultrasonic cavitation, a non-invasive and painless way to lose weight. This article will mainly discuss what rewards it can offer.
What is ultrasonic cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a procedure that utilizes ultrasonic waves to generate tiny bubbles in and around fat cells, causing them to burst. The remainings of these ruptured cells include free fatty acids and glycerol, which are processed by the body. That is how we eliminate otherwise difficult-to-remove fat deposits.
Ultrasound cavitation is a non-invasive procedure in which low-frequency radio waves penetrate the skin and reach fatty deposits in some body parts, such as the flanks, thighs, and upper arms. The entire process can be done in a short time at a spa center or a similar facility, and you can return to your work and life instantly. Since it takes time for your body to digest the destroyed fat, the effect of fat cavitation cannot manifest after several weeks. The procedure solves a shortcoming of liposuction: loose skin after liposuction.
Fat cavitation is a cosmetic procedure, so you must pay out of pocket instead of medical insurance. Each treatment costs a few hundred dollars, but there is a high chance that multiple treatments will be required. That will add to your final expense of ultrasonic cavitation.
Does ultrasonic cavitation work?
Like other plastic surgery procedures, ultrasonic cavitation can work, though the amount of body fat it can remove is limited. You can remove stubborn fat deposits or adipose tissue from small body areas, but it is a shaping process and should not be considered a significant weight loss.
Fat deposits removed with ultrasound cavitation are permanent. Still, if you don't maintain a low-calorie diet and an appropriate level of physical activity, your body may store new fat in the targeted area. That may cause fat to return even after ultrasonic cavitation therapy. Therefore, you should not consider getting in shape until you reach a healthy weight.
The length of the treatment depends on the location of the treatment area. Since it takes time for the body to treat the destroyed fat cells, it also takes time for the effects of a person's body shaping process to manifest. That means you may not know the validity of the session until much later. As with cryolysis, you may need to perform multiple cavitation sessions on the same body area to achieve the fat loss you want.
After your body has processed the fatty tissue, the treated areas during ultrasonic cavitation may not appear smooth. Lumps or waves may remain on the skin and must be addressed during subsequent treatments.
What are the benefits of ultrasonic cavitation?
The treatment can be used on nearly all body parts. Common treatment sites include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or back. Some spa centers or clinics can work on smaller areas like your chin or upper arms.
Unlike liposuction, ultrasonic fat cavitation does not require surgical procedures; therefore, there are no anesthesia, blood, or bandages. Instead, this treatment relies on high-frequency sound waves to help you lose inches without causing physical trauma.
You will not feel any discomfort during and after the procedure. At best, you'll feel warm as the handpiece passes through your skin.
Results are often immediately visible - sometimes, you can see the difference immediately after your first treatment. Best results are seen in as little as three days. Depending on your body composition, you may need between 6 and 12 treatments to reach your goals.
The therapy offers a practical solution when both diet and exercise fail. You can resculpt your body, eliminate cellulite, and own fair skin.
Fat cavitation therapy uses low-level ultrasound to break down fat cells into fluid while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. Once fat cells are liquefied, they are excreted through the body's natural elimination process.
Ultrasound is a medical procedure routinely used for many diagnoses and treatments. The method has few risks, especially compared to other fat loss methods that require invasive surgery.
Each treatment only takes 20-60 minutes, making it the perfect lunchtime treatment. There is no rest time; the only thing you need to do is drink plenty of water.
What should you do before and after an ultrasonic cavitation session?
The more water you drink, the better your system will be. The same goes for sweating afterward. Light exercise (about 30 minutes of walking) can be followed after treatment to boost metabolism and help the body digest fluids.
It is essential to avoid alcohol and eat a healthy diet before and after treatment. The general recommendation is to drink plenty of water after each treatment to help the body in its natural process of elimination. For best results, eat a healthy diet, avoid high-fat foods, eat more fruits and vegetables, and eat a balanced diet. Your liver has difficulty dealing with the fat it breaks down in the process, so don't drink alcohol for at least five days. Self-massage of the target area is also recommended. Pressing, kneading, and stimulating the site for 5-10 minutes twice a day can help your body release broken-down fat.
