Fat Cavitation

Body Contouring (Cavitation)


What Is Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation?

Ultrasonic cavitation is a weight-loss treatment that uses low-frequency sound waves to break down fat cells. The process may result in a reduction in inches on the treated areas. Unlike liposuction treatment, which requires surgery to remove fat, ultrasonic cavitation is noninvasive and involves a much easier recovery.

During the ultrasonic cavitation procedure, machines target specific body areas with low-frequency sound waves. In some cases, light suction is also used. The ultrasound waves heat and vibrate the layer of fat cells below the skin’s surface, causing them to dislodge from your skin’s layers and break apart from each other. This is known as “cavitation.” The broken-down fatty acids are then absorbed through the bloodstream and lymphatic system and burned off as energy, resulting in a slimmer figure.

How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?

Ultrasonic cavitation works by using low-frequency sound waves to break down fat cells beneath the skin’s surface. It may lead to fat loss and reduced inches in the treated area.

What should I expect from my first ultrasonic cavitation?

If you’re considering booking an ultrasonic cavitation treatment for the first time, read on to find out everything you need to know to prepare.


Prior to undergoing ultrasonic cavitation, you should not eat two hours before the treatment. Follow a low fat/low carb diet and drink at least two liters of water 24 hours before your treatment.


During the procedure, you’ll be relaxed laying and hear a buzzing sound from the machine, and you may feel a warm sensation on the skin being treated.  Treatments typically last 20-60 minutes.


The treated area may feel swollen and tender for a few days following your treatment and you may experience bruising as well as urinary and bowel movements and probably even diarrhea. You may eat food one hour after the treatment.


You will be advised to stay hydrated, follow a healthy diet and avoid alcohol and nicotine in the days following treatment. This will help the broken-down fat leave the body as energy and waste. It may be up to 6 to 8 weeks before you notice the full results of your treatment, as it takes time for your body to expel the broken-down fat.

How Long does Ultrasonic Cavitation Last?

Most ultrasonic cavitation treatments require repeat appointments to achieve the desired results. Sessions may last between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on your body weight and the areas being treated. Treatments should be completed in two appointments a week (72 hours apart each) .

Is ultrasonic cavitation permanent?

The long-term results of ultrasonic cavitation are dependent on your health and body type. The results will be long-lasting if a healthy lifestyle is maintained. However, an unhealthy diet and an inactive lifestyle may result in fat building up again in the treated areas.
