What Is It?
Ultrasound cavitation is a virtually painless, non-surgical body contouring technique thats performed as an alternative to liposuction.
Using ultrasound waves to turn fat cells into free fatty acids, which are easier for the body to get rid of. The low-frequency ultrasound waves, which penetrate the skin and create bubbles around fat deposits. The bubbles then burst, causing the body to get rid of them naturally through the urinary tract and lymphatic system.
How Does It Work?
Once the physician has marked the targeted areas, they will then operate the applicator in a circular movement, transmitting a low-level frequency to the desired areas.
Patients may experience a slight buzzing sound due to the sound waves; this is in no way irritable. The treatment will last approximately 20-30 minutes, although the length of time is dependent upon the individual’s fat tissue density.
