Ultrasound Cavitation

Ultrasound Cavitation uses soundwaves to disrupt the structure of fat cells and break them down into liquid fat, which is then removed from the body through the lymphatic system. It is a non-invasive and comfortable treatment.

Ultrasound Cavitation is an effective and non-invasive method of fat reduction. It is also known as Ultrasound Inch Loss treatment and is scientifically proven to lead to a 1-5cm reduction in the circumference of the area. Fat cells have a weak structure and the force of the soundwaves ruptures the membranes of the cells, turning them into liquid fat. Following this, the lymphatic system recognises the liquid fat as a waste product and removes it from the body. This is a gradual process, and the results will develop over the weeks after the treatment.

Clients can see significant results from only one session of Ultrasound Cavitation. However, it is important to bear in mind that while the treatment can reduce the number of fat cells within the body, the remaining fat cells can reabsorb the liquid fat. Therefore, it is best to advise that your clients undergo a course of treatments, ensuring that sessions are no more than 72 hours apart.

This procedure is ideal for clients who are struggling to lose fat despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Areas that it can treat include the abdomen, arms, legs and the back.

Excerpts

"All patients experienced a notable reduction in fat thickness
within the treatment site. The mean reduction in circumference after a
single treatment was 2,938 + 0,623 cm. The ultrasound measurement
results showed the mean subcutaneous fat thickness reduction of 2,96
+ 2,01 mm."
"No significant change in levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, and liver markers was observed. Side effects were limited to slight erythema that persisted up to 1 hour after the treatment."

Excerpts

"The treated side showed a smaller number of viable cells compared to the control side both immediately after treatment and 3 days later."
"The results shown in this paper demonstrate Ultrasonic Hydrolipoclasy as a viable alternative for the treatment of localized fat deposits without the side effects of traditional surgical procedures."
