Ultrasonic body cavitation is a non-invasive fat removal procedure that can help you get rid of stubborn areas of fat that other methods have not been able to remove. The process uses sound waves to target and disrupts fatty cells so that they release their contents into the body for elimination. The ultrasound works by concentrating energy in one focal point, which creates a small negative pressure or suction on the surface of the skin where it is applied, which causes nearby tissue structures to collapse and release any fluids trapped within them. Cavitation is thought to be especially effective in “relaxing” fat cells so they can be more easily eliminated from the body by exercise and diet.

What is the difference between ultrasonic body cavitation and traditional liposuction?
Ultrasonic body cavitation is a non-invasive, painless type of liposuction treatment that uses sound waves to target and disrupts fat cells so they release their contents into the body for elimination. Traditional liposuction involves the direct removal of excess fat by a surgeon using specialised surgical instruments.ultrasonic body cavitation requires no incisions and usually no anaesthesia, although local anaesthetic creams may be applied at the discretion of your practitioner to ensure comfort throughout the entire treatment process.
What areas can be treated with ultrasonic body cavitation?
Ultrasonic body cavitation works best on small to medium-sized fatty deposits that have been resistant to other weight management techniques. While it is designed primarily as a fat removal tool, it has also been used as a skin rejuvenation treatment to smooth the appearance of cellulite and fine lines.
Where is ultrasonic body cavitation performed?
In most cases, the process is performed in a specially-equipped clinic or medical facility by an experienced practitioner. A pressurised handpiece delivers the ultrasonic energy to targeted areas at depths ranging from 0.1 inches (0.25 centimetre) to 0.5 inches (1.3 centimetres), which can be performed in conjunction with deep tissue massages and other body treatments for added results.
How long does ultrasonic body cavitation last?
The effects of ultrasonic body cavitation are long-lasting and continue to improve over time as residual fat is eliminated from the skin, although they often fade after around six months, so it is important not to expect permanent results or drastic changes immediately after undergoing this treatment. Side effects are uncommon, but they may include soreness that is typically relieved by applying creams or ointments at your discretion throughout the next couple of weeks.
Who should not undergo ultrasonic body cavitation?
Ultrasonic body cavitation is not recommended for pregnant women, people with pacemakers or implants, people with certain types of skin conditions that may be aggravated by the process, or patients unable or unwilling to exercise or diet in order to support the treatment’s effects, and anyone with specific health risks. Speak with your medical practitioner to determine if it is appropriate for you.
Can ultrasonic body cavitation be combined with other weight management strategies?
An ultrasonic body cavitation is a useful tool for anyone who has been unable to lose fat using more traditional methods. As a non-invasive procedure, it does not require the commitment of time and resources needed for more extensive fat removal methods, and can therefore be used in conjunction with other weight loss treatments such as exercise regimes, diet changes, and even prescription medications. It is important to note that total results cannot be expected until you have made lifestyle changes or followed a proper exercise program in conjunction with the procedure.
Does ultrasonic body cavitation hurt?
Ultrasonic body cavitation can be performed safely with a local anaesthetic cream to minimise discomfort. However, it is important to remember that the sound waves used by the device do not penetrate the skin and can cause localised discomfort if they are applied too close to nerves and blood vessels within or around areas of fat. This is why it is recommended that you lie back during your procedure, as this will reduce the amount of pressure on nerve endings in sensitive areas, and taking deep breaths before starting your treatment will help ease any discomfort.
