Weight loss is more than goal these days, it’s an entire industry so finding the right services or procedure to help you can be tricky. Many Treatments like ultrasonic cavitation can make it even trickier if you’re not even sure what that means or what it does. Put simply, ultrasonic cavitation is a weight-loss treatment that uses low-frequency sound waves to burst fat cells, almost liquifying them… making it easier for the body to eliminate it through your lymphatic system, which may result in lost inches on the treated areas and (ultimately) a slimmer figure. It’s been growing in popularity over the last few years because while traditional liposuction requires an invasive procedure to remove fat, this procedure doesn’t. To keep you informed, here are some answers to all your most pressing questions about the process below:
What is ultrasonic cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a simple procedure that relies on sound waves to flush fat from the body instead of intensive surgery.
How does ultrasonic cavitation work?
During an ultrasonic cavitation procedure, noninvasive machines target specific body areas with low-frequency sound waves (they’re what put the “ultrasonic” in “ultrasonic cavitation”) and, in some cases, light suction, and in some cases, we combine the Cavitation treatment with Radio Frequency to make it easier for the body to eliminate the fat and firm the skin at the same time. This process heats and vibrates the layer of fat cells below the skin’s surface. The pressure eventually causes the fat cells to liquefy and release their contents into the bloodstream. Proponents of the procedure believe that the body is then able to process these fatty acids through its proverbial waste-disposal plant: the lymphatic system.
How much does ultrasonic cavitation cost?
The cost of ultrasonic cavitation varies greatly depending on the treatment area, but you can typically expect to pay between $150 to $350 per session depending the size of the area to be treated. For substantial savings, check with our Facial Mania Spa team of experts for Specials.
Does ultrasonic cavitation work?
Yes, but results may vary! Depending on your individual health history and body type, along with how many treatments of Cavitation you choose to have, you may slim down more or less dramatically or have longer- or shorter-lasting results than others.
What kind of results can I expect?
Results can vary greatly from patient to patient. However, most proponents of ultrasonic cavitation claim that you may see three results:
- Tightened skin and reduced cellulite (due to the production of new collagen and elastin fibers)
- Reduced circumference in the treated area (due to fat-cell release)
- An overall contoured appearance (due to a combination of the benefits listed above)
How many treatments do I need? How often should I be treated to see results?
Although most practices that offer ultrasonic cavitation claim you’ll see results after the first session, they also caution that between 6 to 12 sessions are needed but it all depends on the amount of localized fat in the area to be treated for optimum results. The exact number of treatments needed will vary due to factors such as age, weight, and the area being treated.
