Ultrasonic cavitation is a non-invasive, cosmetic treatment that targets specific areas of the body that are prone to holding stubborn fat pockets. Ultrasound Cavitation utilizes low-frequency sound waves and, in some cases, a light vacuum suction device. 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 fatty acids into the bloodstream. Once this disturbance of the fat cells occurs, the body is able to process the fatty acids through it’s waste-disposal system, otherwise known as the lymphatic drainage system.
Ultrasound Cavitation is a safe and effective therapy to combat fat pockets around the body. Patients can expect to see optimum results between 10-12 sessions. The exact number of treatments needed will vary due to factors such as age, weight, and the area being treated.
Treatment duration is 60 mins.
What is Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasound Cavitation uses leading edge technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system, the lymphatic drainage system. Generally one fat cavitation treatment lasts 60 minutes where a single part of the body is treated. 48 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat. The minimum suggested number of fat cavitation sessions is 8, however most patients are more satisfied with 12.
Which treatment areas are most effective?
All those areas with localized fat pockets. Areas such as thighs, abdomen, flanks, buttocks and upper arms are the most effective treatment areas.
How does Ultrasound Cavitation work?
Our Master Body Contourist will apply Ultrasound Gel to the treatment area, followed by the Ultrasound Cavitation hand piece. This specially designed hand piece will transmit low level ultrasonic waves which consist of compression and expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. This back and forth cycle then causes an infinite quantity of micro-cavities or micro-bubbles that gradually enlarge. This progressive enlargement results in micro-bubbles which start to collide and implode, producing shock waves that favor emulsification and elimination of fat tissues (this process is known as “cavitation”). The fatty acids spilled then easily vacuumed out from the body using the lymphatic drainage system and bowl.

Frequently Asked Questions
No, Ultrasound Cavitation is a painless treatment and is often referred to as “Lunchtime Lipo” as it can be done any time of the day without any downtime, pain or recovery. Mild redness may appear as blood flow increases. The heat from the Radio Frequency is comparable to a hot stone massage and considered of therapeutic temperature. This treatment is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia – it’s non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or the need for any post-operative course) and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment.
Ultrasound Cavitation is not considered a weight loss method but rather to reshape and contour the body. It is particularly useful in the reduction of adiposity, “love handles” that aren’t responding to diet and exercise. Ultrasound Cavitation can also be successful in removing cellulite and preventing fat cells from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system.
Ultrasound Cavitation causes an emulsification of the fat, converting it into a substance easy to eliminate through the urinary and the lymphatic system.
Advantages over other treatments:
- Non- invasive treatment
- No need for hospitalization or anesthesia
- No scars or long term marking of the skin
- Mild to no discomfort
- Elimination of the fat through a natural process
- 60 min per session
Preparation before each treatment:
We recommend a low calorie diet and consumption of at least 1-2 gallons of water before and after your treatment session. Drinking water is crucial in order to eliminate the fat acids. Regular exercise such as walking or other aerobic activities should also be maintained in order to help the lymphatic system naturally process the fatty acids after each treatment. Use of an infrared sauna within 48hr-72hrs following each treatment is a great way to increase the elimination of the fatty acids drained.
Possible treatment areas:
- Abdomen & Arms
- Flanks / Love handles / Muffin Top Midback / Bra Fat
- Outer Thighs (saddle bags)
- Inner Thighs
- Back of the Thighs (under the buttocks)
- Front of the Thighs
Ultrasound Cavitation yields immediate results resulting in inch loss for most patients. We recommend patients schedule 1-3 sessions per week and not less than 8 to 12 sessions to see significant results.
Once patients reached their desired outcome in their chosen treatment area, maintenance treatments consist of 1 session per week to maintain patient satisfaction.
Warning: PLEASE NOTE: You must be a healthy, qualified candidate to receive Laser Lipo treatments. You are NOT a good candidate if you are pregnant or nursing, if you have large metal implants near the treatment area, or if you have any serious medical condition such as uncontrolled diabetes or high blood pressure, heart disease, liver or kidney failure, epilepsy, a pacemaker or other electronic devices, etc. If you are in doubt as to whether you can receive treatments, please consult your physician first.
