What is Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasound Cavitation is a relatively new aesthetic treatment. Using leading edge technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system. When the treatment of ultrasound cavitation is followed by a lymphatic drainage the process is faster, as the drainage is very effective at eliminating liquids. Generally one fat cavitation treatment lasts 35 – 40 minutes where a single part of the body is treated. 72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat. The minimum suggested number of fat cavitation sessions is between 6 and 10.
How does Ultrasound Cavitation work?
A fully trained therapist will apply a specially designed handpiece to your skin. The hand piece will then transmit low level ultrasonic waves which consist of compression- expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. This back and forth cycle then causes an infinite quantity of micro-cavities or micro-bubbles that gradually enlarge. This progressive enlargement finishes as micro-bubbles start to collide and implode, producing shock waves that favour emulsification and elimination of fat tissues (this phenomena is called “cavitation”). The liquid is then easily vacuumed out from the body using the lymphatic and urinary system.
