What is ultrasonic cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is non-invasive and non-surgical fat removal treatment. There is no need for a lengthy recovery – meaning you can return to work and your normal activities. Ultrasounds waves ‘penetrate’ the skin surface to break down fat cells. Concentrated sonic energy is directed only to treatment areas which disrupts the subcutaneous fat cells. The low frequency ultrasound produces cavitation which breaks up the adipose cell membranes which cannot withstand this pressure.
Ultrasound cavitation is a form of liposuction with no incisions or needles that produces effective results.
Cavitation assists in body contouring and can help reduce and eliminate cellulite.

Ultrasonic lipo aftercare
Although the number of fat cells is reduced during ultrasonic lipo, clients are still advised to live a healthy lifestyle as this will help maintain their results. Furthermore, it's essential that you drink 2-3 litres of water a day to flush the dead fat cells out of your body. It is also important to exercise regularly as this will assist in the metabolism of the dead fat cells.
