Nowadays, there are many ways to get rid of body fat deposits.  Ultrasound or ultrasonic cavitation is one of the effective methods to make your body slimmer. Cavitation is a method of ultrasound liposuction; it is also called non-surgical liposuction.  It is an apparatus-supported method. A high-intensity ultrasound wave (30 – 40 kHz) coming through the transducers of the device destroys the fat cells. Ultrasound creates cavitation microbubbles in the fat layer making it softer, which facilitates displacement of cells forming the fat tissue with their contents removed through natural metabolic processes in the course of the following lymphatic drainage massage or pressotherapy.


Indications for cavitation treatment?

• Clearly noticeable cellulite
• Persistent fat accumulation on the abdomen, thighs and hips, sides, back and other troublesome localized areas
• Unsuccessful preceding liposuction (the necessity to rectify post-surgery defects).

Side effects

As a rule, ultrasound cavitation procedure is painless. The only discomfort can be tinnitus or buzzing in the ears caused by the ultrasound exposure. However, it should be kept in mind that the excretion of the fat cells from the body results in an increased load on the liver, gall bladder and gastro-intestinal tract. To reduce the load, it is necessary to follow recommendations given by the specialist. When undergoing the cavitation treatment, it is required to follow the water consumption rate – no less than 2 liters per day.

How often can you have the cavitation treatment?

  • Specialists remain unanimous on this issue, one time in 5-7 days, alternating that with lymphatic drainage procedures or vacuum massage. During this period, the lymphatic system will manage to excrete the decomposition products of the fat cells that have been exposed to ultrasound. That has a positive influence on the body metabolic processes, as well as eliminates the occurrence of edema.  After completing the course of treatments. To prevent skin laxity, cavitation can be favourably combined with other procedures: radiofrequency lifting, mesotherapy, LPG-massage or body wraps.

Contraindications to cavitation

  • As any other up-to-date methods employed for body sculpting, ultrasound liposuction has a number of contraindications.
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Kidney and liver diseases, hepatitis, urolithiasis.
  • Blood-clotting disorder
  • Diabetes, osteoporosis
  • Infection diseases and tumors
  • Uterine myoma, oncological diseases
  • Menstruation
  • Feeling unwell and fever
  • The intake of anti-febrile medicines and painkillers within 10 days prior to cavitation

It is important to understand that ultrasound cavitation is just an auxiliary method. For its effectiveness and maintenance of the result, it is to be combined with a diet and physical activity. It is also important to drink minimum 2 liters of pure water per day. In addition to cavitation, it is recommended to have a course of lymphatic drainage massage, for degradation of the fat tissue requires the excretion of fat cells out of the body. It can be done by applying manual lymphatic drainage massage, LPG massage, other vacuum roller massage or pressotherapy.
