The procedure is technically known as ultrasound cavitation or ultrasonic cavitation and is considered the primary alternative to liposuction. Ultrasonic cavitation works by breaking down fat deposits with low-frequency ultrasound waves. It removes fat without surgery, hospitalization, anesthesia, or a recovery period that interrupts the patient’s daily life. These factors make it an attractive treatment for fat reduction.


How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?

Ultrasonic cavitation sounds like a complicated process, but it is actually very simple. Lipocavitation treatments use ultrasound waves to travel through the skin to reach the underlying fat layer. These waves create vibrations and pressure that break down fat cells into liquid glycerol and fatty acids. The body then reuses the glycerol and excretes the fatty acids. Ultrasound produces a small amount of heat, improves circulation and speeds up waste disposal.


Everyone has different weight loss goals – whether it’s reducing fat throughout the body or just tweaking problem areas. That’s why a cavitation treatment program is determined by your individual needs and can fit into your life. Typically, the program involves two non-surgical treatments per week for one to two months. Initial results will begin to become noticeable a few days after completing the first session. For optimal results, approximately 10 sessions are required; however, this varies from patient to patient.


Targeted Areas of Ultrasonic Cavitation


As a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, ultrasonic cavitation can be used to target and shape specific areas of the body. Generally, it is used to reduce fat around the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, back, buttocks and waist.

Ultrasonic Cavitation: Side Effects

Safety is a key consideration when undergoing any treatment. Firstly, patients usually do not feel any pain throughout the procedure, making it a very comfortable fat reduction treatment. You may feel a small amount of heat from the ultrasound and some reddening of the skin, but these effects are temporary and usually not painful. What’s more, there is no recovery period afterwards.


Additionally, ultrasound cavitation is FDA-approved and is minimally harmful. Because cavitation is non-surgical, patients can continue their daily lives after each treatment. Keep in mind that you may experience minor side effects such as skin redness, bruising, or skin irritation.
