Ultrasonic cavitation is different and comparatively easier and more effective than other forms of fat reduction treatments. With zero downtime or recovery, a significant amount of fat is melted, and the results are long-lasting, provided that proper care is taken after the service.

How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Melt Fat?

Ultrasonic cavitation uses ultrasonic technology (low-frequency sound waves) to break and melt fat cells. During the session, ultrasonic waves are sent into the layers of fat deep under the skin, causing a high level of vibration. The fat cells then break apart and turn into liquid. This is then normally drained out of the dermal layers. The sound waves can easily destroy the fat cells without causing any damage to the surrounding cells or organs.

A few days after the treatment, the fat cells that were affected are absorbed by the lymphatic system and drained as waste from the body. During the service, you might hear a buzzing sound from the ultrasound machine. The session will last for between 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the condition and the size of the target area.

Ultrasonic cavitation uses a high rate of frequency that it destroys a large number of fat cells, and clients are most pleased to see the results and in some cases an increase in metabolism. The functionality makes it convenient to use ultrasonic energy on different parts of the body. The sound waves destroy subcutaneous fat cells in the cell membranes through microscopic implosions. Once the fat cell is destroyed, the fat is distributed between other cells, where it turns to protein, fatty acids and glycerol. The fatty acids are left to decay and are eventually removed, whereas the glycerol is taken to the circulatory system and converted into energy.

Unlike other treatments, ultrasonic cavitation does not involve the use of knives or surgical incisions. The service simply uses cavitation technology that allows for the non-surgical removal of excess fat deposits in the body. The most common target areas include the upper arms, abdomen, thighs, cellulite and love handles.


Most people are able to see immediate results after the first session, which can improve later on after the client receives a few more sessions. The results of ultrasonic cavitation vary for each individual, depending on the medical history, weight, body type, and target area. For example, some people lose more weight more dramatically compared to others. Nonetheless, you will notice a reduced circumference and an overall contoured appearance. It is recommended to have 6-10 sessions for optimal resutlts.
