How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?

How Cavitation Works?

Ultrasonic cavitation relies on ultrasound technology to break apart fat cells.

Ultrasound waves are sent deep into the layers of your skin, causing a disruptive vibration. Fat cells then break apart from each other and are dislodged from your dermal layers.

After a few days, the fat cells are absorbed by your lymphatic system and drained as waste from your body.

What Happens During An Ultrasonic Cavitation Session?

The procedure for ultrasonic cavitation is pretty straightforward.

You should sterilize the area of your treatment using alcohol. Using a handheld ultrasound device, they’ll slowly go over the target area of your body.

You may hear a buzzing from the ultrasound machine. Treatments typically take between 40 minutes to an hour.

Targeted Areas For Ultrasonic Cavitation

Ultrasonic cavitation is also frequently performed on the:

  • stomach
  • hips
  • face
  • neck
  • upper arms
  • thigh areas

What Ultrasonic Cavitation Side Effects?

Ultrasonic cavitation is considered a low-risk treatment for most people. Common side effects include:

  • redness
  • bruising
  • headache

In some cases, the skin won’t absorb the fat evenly after it breaks down. Lumps, bumps, and valleys on your skin can appear after ultrasonic cavitation treatment.

These skin irregularities may be resolved by followup treatments. 

What To Expect After Ultrasonic Cavitation

But don’t expect to see results right away. Right after your treatment, your body might feel puffy or swollen. It takes time for your body to break down and dissolve the fat cells that have been dislodged.

You may also require repeated treatments to see visible results. Most candidates for this treatment see their final result within 6 to 12 weeks. On average, treatment requires 1 to 3 times for visible results.

Results of this treatment are permanent, as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise. If you have a sedentary lifestyle, fat deposits may return to areas that have been treated.
