Ultrasound cavitation is a non-invasive method, achieving very good results in the fight against cellulite and fat deposits.  The effect of cavitation makes fatty formations softer, separates them from other tissues and allows formed fluid to easily flow out of the body. As a result of the procedure, under the influence of high-frequency ultrasonic waves, adipose cells in the treated areas are destroyed and turned into liquid. The method uses controlled high-frequency waves, generating the microbubbles. These bubbles violate the integrity of the membranes of the fat cells without affecting surrounding structures, because of which the skin and muscles remain unaffected. Adipose cells turn into a liquid substance, flowing out of the body through the lymphatic and excretory systems – it is absorbed by the surrounding tissue, drained by the lymph and anything superfluous and treated is excreted in the urine. Triglycerides from released fat pass to intercellular space, where they metabolize into glycerol and free fatty acids. Water-soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as an energy source. Therefore, after the procedure, you have a sense of increased energy. The insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver, where they are processed as any other fatty acid, having been taken in with the food.

Losing weight through cavitation is an effective medical method for removing fat deposits without surgical intervention. The effect is achieved by synchronized operation of high-frequency ultrasound waves, thus ensuring preserving the integrity of other tissues. In other words, the control over the operation of high-frequency ultrasound waves, effected by a microprocessor, allows their action to be targeted just on the fatty tissues. Ultrasound waves are transmitted to the fatty tissues by ultrasonic massage, carried out by swirling motion of the nozzle.  Ultrasound waves with frequency of 40 KHz can reach and destroy at a depth of 1.5 to 2 cm of adipose tissue. For this reason the internal organs remain unaffected (non-invasive). Excess fat deposits in problem areas, abdomen, hips or thighs, are processed to reduce cellulite.

The other process, which takes place, is lipoinduction. If cavitation has failed to penetrate the adipose cell, it changes the biochemistry of membrane and after 1-2 weeks the body destroys it in a natural way and releases the fat itself over time. It is necessary 2-4 weeks to pass after the procedure, so that the body could process all waste products and decompose them.

Owing to cavitation the shape of the body may be changed, the amount of cellulite, fat formations and deposits can be reduced without having to harm the integrity of tissues, which allows conducting a completely safe procedure. Most customers reduce about 3 cm of treated area after a procedure, however additional impacts are recommended for permanent reduction by 4-6 cm. The results and their number is individual, depending on the problem/amount of available fat, metabolic rate, lifestyle/.

5 to 10 treatments are recommended. It is desirable to make them every 5-7 days.

Cavitation is effective for:

- reduction of the amount of subcutaneous fat

- removal of cellulite

- correction of defects after surgery for liposuction

After the procedure a large amount of fat is discharged, which can overload the liver with processing, therefore cavitation of the whole body is not made. A longer period of 2-3 months will be required for impact on the whole body and reduction.

One procedure lasts for a total of 40 min and treats two selected areas of the following:

- seat

- abdomen

- inner thighs

- outer thighs

- slacks

- knees

- arms

Impact of ultrasound:

- mechanical - causes micromassage on cellular level, increases permeability of cell membranes, which leads to improved metabolic processes in cells and helps distributing cellulite and fat deposits.

- thermal - increases temperature locally in tissues, which leads to speeding up of metabolic processes, lymph and blood circulation.

- physico-chemical - impacts by increasing cell division and synthesis of collagen and elastin.


- not to be applied to children and adolescents

- in the presence of high blood pressure

- malignant diseases

- pregnancy and breastfeeding

- bone fractures

- high temperature

- heart diseases

- during menstruation

- liver disease

Cavitation is recommended for overall toning and remodulation of the body. It eliminates local adipose deposits and cellulite deposits, resulting from disturbed metabolism, genetic and age changes, sedentary lifestyle, poor diet, excessive use of alcohol, carbonated drinks, heavily salted and sweetened foods. If we want to maintain our long-term results, it is necessary to follow a specific diet and movement regime, massages.

The use of ultrasound cavitation method can now move fat deposits in the body.
