Incorporating weight loss into our daily routine can be challenging and stressful, especially when we don't see the expected results. Most people express a desire to lose weight but fail to achieve their goals. If you have tried dieting and exercising before and still can not get the results you have been expecting, it's time to take other steps. That is why ultrasonic cavitation and laser liposuction are among the most popular treatments for non-invasive fat removal and body contouring.


Both ultrasound cavitation and laser lipo are weight loss therapy. The former uses ultrasonic energy to target fat cells, while the latter harnesses laser energy to penetrate the fat cell membrane. The process will help the fat cells release fatty acids, glycerol, and water into your body, allowing the fat cells to shrink and lose inches. The body then excretes stored fat through the lymphatic system or daily activities.


What are 30k and 40k cavitation machines?

30K cavitation

Before purchasing a cavitation machine for ourselves or our spa centers, we need to consider a lot, such as price, appearance, function, warranty, effect, etc. With so many different reviews, it's hard to tell which machine is the best for us, so we don't know which one we should buy. Generally, the cavitation can be roughly divided into five categories by frequency, 25K, 30K, 40K, 60K, and 80K. Among them, 30k and 40k are relatively common machines on the market. Therefore, I will give you more details on 30k and 40k cavitation machines.


A cavitation machine is a good choice for reshaping or eliminating deep-seated and stubborn fat from your body. These machines utilize ultrasonic technology. In other words, it uses different frequencies of sound waves to target subcutaneous fat cells. These machines can generate frequencies from 25kHz to 40kHz. So here comes the question: which is better?

 40K cavitation

There are many advantages of using a 30k cavitation machine over a 40k one. First, the cost of 30,000 machines is generally much lower than the cost of 40,000 machines. Second, 30k machines are smaller and more portable than 40k machines. That makes it easier to use in smaller clinics or treatment rooms. Third, a 30k machine makes less noise than a 40k machine, making it more pleasant for the patient to use. Finally, the 30k machine is as effective as the 40k machine at generating cavitation bubbles. A 30k cavitation machine has lower ultrasonic intensity but can work deeper into fat cells than a 40k machine. As explained above, 30,000 machines can go deep under the skin and magically reshape the body in a short time. If someone wants to lose weight fast and only needs a few specific body parts to get rid of fat cells, 30,000 machines will work well.


How does an ultrasonic cavitation machine work?

Ultrasonic cavitation works by removing unwanted fats and toxins through the urinary and lymphatic systems. It heats and vibrates fat cells under the skin's surface, liquefying them and releasing them into the bloodstream. Fat removal takes about three days, so treatments must be done every three days for best results. To obtain the desired effect, 8-10 cavitation treatments are recommended.


Usually, ultrasonic cavitation is regarded as an alternative to liposuction. That is another non-invasive body shaping method to reduce body fat. In this method, ultrasound converts your fat cells into fatty acids, which are then processed. Nevertheless, ultrasonic cavitation is not a procedure for fat removal. With ultrasound fat cavitation, you can measure a particular body part and know how many inches you've lost after the treatment. If you desire a firmer, more toned look, it might be the way for you.


What is laser lipo?

Lipo laser

Laser liposuction is technically a modern, less invasive surgical procedure than traditional vascular liposuction, but "laser liposuction" is now an attractive alternative to non-invasive fat loss treatments. Laser liposuction will be slightly more expensive because the production cost of laser technology is usually higher, which means the initial cost of the clinic tends to be higher. The treatment is so-called "hands-free"—that is, as a client, you're prepared by a beauty therapist and then let you relax with a vibrator attached to your body. Many patients say they can sleep comfortably during treatment and feel no pain. The laser generates heat, which causes the metabolism of fatty acids within the fat cells of the treated area. Fat cells remain intact but release large amounts of fat. The fat cell membranes become porous and spongy during treatment, allowing the contents to escape easily. Treatment intervals are approximately 48 hours, and at least six treatments are required. Laser liposuction is a semi-permanent treatment because our fat cells remain intact and can expand and contract during weight gain and loss. You may need to repeat the treatment several times a year to achieve it through the first session's fantastic effect. Large amounts of fat can be targeted in one session so that results can be seen within a few weeks.


How does laser lipo work?

Fiber optic diodes that generate a laser beam and heat during laser liposuction are placed on the client's problem area. The combined action of the laser and heat melts and liquefies body fat, making it easier for the body to absorb. Unabsorbed fat fragments enter the body's lymphatic system and are naturally excreted as waste. The fiber optic diode emits a safe laser beam and heat that penetrates deep inside the skin cells, targeting the subcutaneous fat beneath the skin cells. The laser beam is 100% effective in breaking cell membranes and dissolving the cellular material of fat cells. As fat cells melt and break down, they are used up by the body and converted into simpler molecules that generate energy for our daily activities and support our bodily functions.


What to expect from ultrasonic cavitation treatment?

Ultrasonic fat cavitation expels your fat cells instead of destroying them like liposuction. Fat almost always comes back, but with fat cavitation, at least it doesn't show up where you least expect it. To make your results last longer, you need a good diet and lots of regular exercises.


What to expect from laser lipo?

Laser lipolysis is FDA-approved for treating the stomach, waist, back, thighs, and "double chin." Most treatments take about 40 minutes. It allows you to achieve magical inch loss and body contouring with no pain, side effects, no needles, and downtime.


Which is better?

Laser lipolysis and ultrasonic cavitation generate specific results based on the amount of fat you want to remove. Factors to consider are cost, eligibility, frequency of treatment, clinic, and amount of fat loss. Remember, you may need more than one treatment to see results, so it's essential to consult with board-certified plastic surgeons to develop a treatment plan. Making decisions that work for you and your desired outcome is crucial. No option is objectively better or worse than the other; what is relevant is your expectations and how the option you choose will meet those expectations.
