It’s no secret, changes in age, metabolism, hormones, and even medication can cause weight gain. Although weight gain can lower your self-confidence, it’s not just cosmetic. Weight gain can leave you feeling bloated and sluggish. Even when you maintain a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and exercises, it can be difficult to shed those last few inches. Especially in problem areas like the upper arms, abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks.
Part of the problem is shrinking muscle mass. When you were younger, your damaged muscles repaired quickly, but as you age, it takes longer for your muscles to recover. Why is that? No one knows for sure, but the gradual loss of muscle mass means that it gets harder for your body to metabolize fat. Without the ability to metabolize the fat, the body begins to store it as cellulite in some rather unsightly places. If you’re determined to remove those unwanted fat deposits, Ultrasonic cavitation can help.
What is ultrasonic cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation (also known as cavitation liposuction, lipo-cavitation, and ultrasonic liposuction) is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction used for contouring and reshaping the body. Using sound waves, ultrasonic cavitation breaks down the excess fat stored in the body so that it can be eliminated naturally. Ultrasonic cavitation is perfect for the unwanted fat on upper arms, abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks.
Benefits of ultrasonic cavitation
Ultrasonic cultivation has a number of benefits over traditional liposuction. First of all, ultrasonic cavitation is completely pain free. With ultrasonic technology, there is no need for surgery, so you also avoid the risks involved with anesthesia. Since there are no knives, there are no scares. Because ultrasonic cavitation is a non-invasive treatment, there is no hospitalization or recovery time. Your procedure won’t disrupt your usual routine.
Easy results from convenient sessions
How long before you start seeing results? Many people see visible results after their first 2 hour session. Of course, some choose to schedule shorter sessions (20-40 minutes) over a longer period of time, making it easy to fit the appointment into a busy schedule. The length and number of appointments depend on the size of the area being treated and the thickness of the fat layer. Continuing for 6-10 session can result in a reduction of several cm in circumference.
How does ultrasonic cavitation work?
The ultrasonic cavitation device uses sound waves (in the range between 40KHz and 5MHz) directed specifically at the target area. During the procedure, these pulsing waves penetrate the epidermis and target fat cells. These targeted sound waves break down the walls of the fat cells, leaving the surrounding cells unharmed. After the low frequency waves destroy the membrane surrounding the fat cell, the body turns the fluid into protein, free fatty acid, and glycerol. The body uses the protein to build and repair muscle while the free fatty acid is processed out of the body through the liver, and the glycerol is used for energy.
What is the difference between ultrasonic cavitation and laser body contouring?
Laser body contouring does not implode the fat cell wall. Instead lasers increase the body’s metabolism by heating up the cells. The heat causes the cell wall to open and for contents to leak out, making the fat cell temporarily smaller. In order to achieve any measurable results, you must undergo treatment once every 48 to 72 hours for about two weeks. With Ultrasonic cavitation, the fat cell is destroyed and leaves the body through the lymphatic system.
Achieving the best results
Just like any procedure, results will vary, but there are a number of things you can do to ensure optimal results. When scheduling an ultrasonic cavitation treatment, it’s best to eat a low calorie diet before and after the procedure. Avoid eating two hours before or one hour after the appointment. Do not drink any alcohol or caffeine the day of the treatment or within 48 hours after the treatment. On the other hand, drinking plenty of water (8 glass a day) before and after the procedure will help your body metabolize the protein, fatty acids, and glycerol that will result from the treatment. Cardio following the procedure is also recommended since it will burn the glycerol and expand the lymphatic vessels that channels the waste out of the body. When scheduling multiple appointments, you will need to wait 72 hours between procedures to allow the body to process the destroyed fat cells.
Ultrasonic cavitation is a body sculpting procedure, not a weight loss procedure. Ultrasonic cavitation simply helps you disrupt the fat storage that occurs in those hard to trim problem areas. However, with healthy diet and exercise you can maintain your desired results.
