Ultrasonic aesthetic cavitation is an effective way to reduce localized fat. This technique was developed in Italy just 5 years ago (in Italian it's called "Cavitazione Estetica")
Ultrasonic cavitation reduces the presence of fat cells using special techniques of manipulation, by using a device that is used against the skin on the area where you want to treat adiposity. This equipment works with ultrasound that form vapor bubbles in the tissues surrounding the fat cells which, through a physical process called cavitation, collapse and implode. The implosion due to cavitation damages only the fat cells, thereby reducing localized fat, leaving critical surrounding structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue unharmed.
The physical principle of cavitation was not used until recently, in aesthetic medicine. After the destruction of fat cells, there will be a transformation of the fat in liquid (diglycerides) that will be eliminated through the lymphatic system and the urinary tract. With ultrasonic cavitation the fat cells are submitted to a pressure that breaks their membranes, unleashing the destruction of fat deposits. The fat content - triglycerides- is fragmented into diglycerides, that are expelled through the urine. A low calorie diet and drinking at least two liters of water before and after each session is recommended , since it is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat.
Ultrasonic cavitation sessions typically last 35 minutes, where only one area is worked: abdomen, buttocks, inner or outer area of the legs are the most common ones. In each session there is a reduction in volume of up to 2 cm. Sessions must be completed every 72 hours, the time needed for the body to eliminate fat. It is recommended to achieve between 6 and 12 sessions of ultrasonic cavitation, depending on the area treated and the condition of the patient. The minimum recommended session is six.
