Ultrasound Cavitation Liposuction
What is Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasound Lipo is a new technology for breakdown of the fat deposits. This procedure does not involve invasive surgery – there is no need for anesthesia, hospital stay and no down-time. This unique Cavitation technology provides a non-invasive method to breakdown stubborn fat deposits that never seems to disappear no matter what your diet is or how hard you exercise. The most problematic body areas are abdomen, flanks (love handles), inner thighs, buttocks, inner knees, under chin and upper arm. Ultrasonic slimming machine is the latest development, combining Bipolar RF and Tripolar RF technology. It is significantly more effective for fat burning, body shaping, skin tightening and cellulite reduction.
High-intensity focused ultrasound
In HIFU therapy, ultrasound beams are focused on diseased tissue, and due to the significant energy deposition at the focus, temperature within the tissue can rise to levels from 65° to 85°C, destroying the diseased tissue by coagulation necrosis. Higher temperature levels are typically avoided to prevent boiling of liquids inside the tissue. Each sonic beam theoretically treats a precisely defined portion of the targeted tissue, although in practice cold spots (cause by, among other things, blood perfusion in the tissue), beam distortion, and beam mis-registration are impediments to finely controlled treatments. The entire therapeutic target is treated by moving the applicator on its robotic arm in order to juxtapose multiple shots, according to a protocol designed by the physician. This technology can achieve precise ablation of diseased tissue, therefore is sometimes called HIFU surgery. Because it destroys the diseased tissue non-invasively, it is also known as “Non-invasive HIFU surgery”. Anesthesia is not required, but should be recommended. The treatment can be combined with radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
What is the Ultrasound Cavitation Treatment Like?
Ultrasonic Cavitation is a newer, non-invasive surgical technique which uses an ultrasound Cavitation machine which emits ultrasonic waves to cause breakdown in fat cells, while leaving all other tissues intact. It is selectively target fat cells only by operating only at a specific, narrow band of frequency. Once the fatty cells die off, they are absorbed into the blood stream and excreted in your urine. What’s more, Cavitation is 100% outpatient, barring any rare complications. There is 0 recuperative time, other than following a few simple rules. Treatment starts with the target body area and continues with circular movements of the applicator over the treatment site. Weekly treatments are beneficial to aid in final results. Treatment duration for each target area can vary from 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fatty tissue. Treatment areas are: abdomen, arms, thighs, flanks (love handles), back (fat beneath the buttocks).
How does Ultrasound Cavitation Liposuction work?
Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency ultrasound. The ultrasound field creates the bubbles in the liquid which gradually grow and implode at certain size. The energy in the form of heat and pressure is released. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of Cavitation easily and selectively breaks them down. The Cavitation treatment does not require any special pre-treatment. It starts with circumference measurement of the target body area, continues with circular movements of the applicator over the treatment site, and is finalized with another circumference measurement. The duration of treatment session can vary from 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area and the thickness of the fatty tissue. 6 to 9 sessions at 1 week intervals are recommended in order to achieve noticeable results. Further treatments may be needed to attain your desired silhouette.
The treatment does not require anesthesia. Most of the clients consider the procedure painless and comfortable. There may be a slight discomfort due to the specific noise that spreads throughout your body due to the ultrasonic treatment. This poses no physical harm and disappears as soon as you are not in contact with the applicator. You may also experience some warmth during the treatment. There is a slight possibility of mild redness, excessive thirst, and nausea immediately after the treatment which always resolves by drinking water. They are all short term effects that will disappear within a few hours. Even though the studies have proven the treatment safe, the Cavitation is not be used on clients with an acute illness, comprised liver function, severe bleeding tendencies, pace makers, or during pregnancy. The Cavitation treatment yields long-lasting results. Most of the clients experience toning effect after a single session with increasing results after each visit. The results may vary with different tissue structure, body area, age, metabolism, and medications. Proper diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve final results.
Benefits of Treatment:
- Improve blood circulation & lymphatic system
- Promotes elastic effect to the skin texture
- Body shaping and tightening
- No surgery / No pain
- Remove fat cells permanently
- Strengthen and tightening Connective tissue
- No anesthesia
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments varies from person to person and from body area to body area. Your lifestyle and immune system also play a vital role in treatment progress. We highly recommend a daily nutrition plan consisting of fresh produce in combination with vitamin supplements and exercise. Ultrasound Cavitation Liposuction is more effective if combined with ND-Yag Laser, Radio Frequency, IPL, Thermo-C System, Lymphatic drainage and RF.
