What is ultrasonic cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation procedure is a treatment procedure which relies on simple sound surfs to flush lipids out of your body without an intensive surgical process. This means that no scars, no pain, or recovery time required. You will be in and out in a single day thus having minimal disruptions on your daily routine.
How does ultrasonic cavitation Machine work?
The machine includes a transducer which emits ultrasound. When directed to an area of your body, these high-frequency sound waves penetrate the skin and fatty layers. Ultrasound creates heat and pressure on a cellular level. Unfortunately for cellulite, it’s too much to handle.
Ultrasonic cavitation machine triggers a process called lipolysis where cellulite breaks down into triglycerides. In this form, your body is able to utilize fat cells as energy or dispose of them as waste. Either way, you can be guaranteed to lose weight in days.
How long does ultrasonic cavitation result last?
Ultrasonic cavitation process does not do away with the fat cells. Instead, it empties them of their content. This implies that these cells are still capable of storing fats again. Therefore, sticking to a balanced diet after the treatment is the surest way to ensure long-lasting results. For those who consume more calories than they burn are likely to see their improvements deteriorate over a short time.
The Benefits of Ultrasonic Cavitation Machines
1.Pain-free and non-invasive
Liposuction and gastric bypass are invasive approaches to weight loss. Since they place you under the knife, these procedures are not only painful – it also takes longer to recover. An ultrasonic cavitation machine gives you the freedom to lose weight without the lengthy recovery. You can undergo treatment and get back to your daily routine within minutes!
2. Lose weight effortlessly
Most weight loss journeys call for a strict diet or regular exercise. For those of us who are busy, it’s impossible to have time for these. But with an ultrasonic cavitation machine, you can achieve weight loss without putting in much effort.
3.Removes stubborn fat
Some fats are difficult to get rid of, even with a healthy lifestyle. This usually happens for older fat deposits called cellulite. The cavitation machine uses ultrasound to penetrate tough fatty layers and liquefy them. It has been scientifically proven to reduce fat deposits, although further evidence is needed for overall weight loss.
Ultrasonic cavitation machines cost hundreds to thousands of dollars. Compared to invasive procedures, they’re still cheaper. Dermatologists offer UCM treatment at lower rates than invasive methods. But the cost can easily pile up since it takes 3-4 treatments for results to show. If you really want to save money, might as well buy one yourself.
5.Can be used on almost any body part
Fat tends to build up in certain areas of the body like the cheeks, neck, arms, abdomen, and thighs. The great thing about this device is that you can safely use it almost anywhere.
6.Sculpts your figure to perfection
Besides weight loss, ultrasonic cavitation lets you sculpt your body as desired. You get to decide which areas to target so you can maintain a curvy figure.
7.Keeps you looking young
You don’t need to worry about wrinkling and saggy skin. An ultrasonic cavitation machine can rejuvenate your youthful glow. Ultrasound acts by toning and improving your skin’s elasticity. It reduces wrinkles and makes the skin smooth and supple.
8.Whitens the skin
Some skin machines are equipped with the added feature of whitening your skin. It would be great for people who want a lighter complexion.
Therapists have been using ultrasound to treat minor injuries for decades. It is believed that by producing heat and vibration, sound waves speed up the healing process in a targeted area.
These machines can be used to treat swelling and muscle injuries by stimulating blood flow and cell repair. Some therapists argue that ultrasound therapy doesn’t work and that the heat produced by massage produces the same effect. However, I don’t think they realize that massage can worsen injuries by causing physical trauma to the site.
Ultrasound therapy may also be useful in treating localized infections. Since it promotes blood flow, white blood cells which are responsible for fighting infection can reach the infected site faster. Of course, you’d have to use it alongside proper medical treatment.
Know What to Expect
Ultrasound fat cavitation empties out your fat cells, rather than destroying them as liposuction does.
In some ways, that’s a good thing. With liposuction, your body will continue to make fat. Since it can’t put new fat deposits in cells that have been destroyed, you may end up with fat deposits in new areas of your body. The fat will almost always come back, but with fat cavitation, at least it won’t appear where you least expect it.
To make your results last longer, you’ll need a great diet and plenty of regular exercises. If your calorie intake rises above your body’s chances to burn off fat, you’ll see the fat come back.
Is it immediate?
At times, the result of this procedure is evident soon after the first session. Optimum outcome starts to show in after 2 to 3 days. Notably, depending on your body composition, you might be required to attend 6 to 12 session before you can achieve your goal. However, as noted early this process can be accelerated when it is linked with a balanced diet. Also when compared to other weight loss mechanisms, for instance, weight lift, this procedure is easier, and it also brings about a precise outcome.
Frequently Asked Questions on Ultrasonic Cavitation
1. How often should I use it?
Dermatologists recommend using ultrasound cavitation at least four times in the first two weeks. Each session should last 10 to 15 minutes. Treatments must be spaced out every 3 to 4 days. After the first two weeks, you can limit its use to once a week.
Bonus tip: I highly recommend getting a machine with a timer. That way, you don’t end up spending less or more time than is needed for each session.
2. Which body areas can I use it on?
You can use it in almost any area of the body. The only exceptions are around the eyes and near the heart. I also noticed that it’s better to focus on one area at a time, rather than target multiple areas during each treatment.
3. Is it safe to use?
Absolutely! Remember that ultrasonic cavitation is a painless and non-surgical way of removing fat from your body. As long as you follow the recommended use and safety precautions, it’s practically harmless.
4. Does it actually work?
Several studies prove the outstanding benefits of ultrasonic cavitation. One of these studies explores the ‘Effects of Ultrasound-induced Cavitation on Human Skin Adipose Tissue’. Researchers discovered that ultrasonic cavitation is effective for localized fat reduction. They went on to conclude that it is a ‘promising and safe technology’ after noticing its positive results on participants of the study.
5. What can I expect during and after treatment?
During treatment, you might experience nausea or feel a warm and tingling sensation in targeted body parts. This is completely normal and a sign that the ultrasound is taking effect. Your body temperature will be elevated shortly after the treatment. Again, this is nothing you should worry about. It only means that your body is detoxifying and removing the excess fat.
6. When will I see results?
It depends on the individual and the machine you’re using. Some report benefits as early as the second or third treatment. Most users report visible changes after six sessions. However, the best results can be seen after 12 weeks of treatment.
7. Any precautions I should take?
- Avoid drinking alcohol days following each treatment. Your liver is working extra hard to remove fat from your body. Drinking alcoholic beverages will make it harder for your liver to do its job.
- Follow the instructions of the beauty machine you purchased. Each one has its unique manual and settings.
- Always start with the lowest setting. Slowly increase the heat according to your comfort levels to avoid burning your skin.
- Apply generous amounts of water-based lubricant on the area you wish to target. Ultrasound gel acts as a conductor and enables ultrasound to penetrate deep into your skin. If it dries out during treatment, simply add more gel.
Consult a doctor before using this machine. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, suffering from liver problems, or any chronic condition that impairs circulation and metabolism.
