What is lipo cavitation?

Lipo cavitation removes excess fat, reduces cellulite, and stimulates circulation and collagen production.  The procedure uses low-frequency ultrasound to target fat cells in the bottom layer of the skin.  A few days later, the cells release fatty material absorbed by the body's lymphatic system and excreted naturally as waste.

During this process, fat cells are stressed by ultrasonic vibrations. The pressure is high enough to break down fat into liquid. The broken-down fat cells are absorbed into the body, passing through the liver and kidneys, and excreted as waste. This treatment is the preferred method for removing body fat over other invasive procedures. It is also used with other weight loss programs to get rid of excess fat. It's worth noting that your weight will return if you eat high-calorie foods. 


What are the benefits of lipo cavitation?

Age, metabolism, tissue structure, and the area to be treated can affect results, so it's essential to foster a sound diet and exercise for optimal lipo cavitation outcomes. It usually takes several sessions to achieve the best results, and after the first treatment, you will start to see good results. This procedure has several benefits that make it an increasingly popular alternative to liposuction. The details are as follows:


  • Reduce cellulite and stretch marks

Lipo cavitation reduces fat by liquefying fatty deposits, which are secreted through the body systems. It also promotes tissue and collagen regeneration and reduces the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. It also improves body contours.


  • Non-invasive procedure

It is not surgery. Thus, it uses no anesthesia, and there is no recovery period. You can return to your daily routine immediately after treatment.


  • It's painless

During lipo cavitation, the device may feel like a gentle massage. While some people may experience tingling or sensitivity, this is a painless procedure and completely harmless. The surrounding tissues, cells, and organs are not affected.


  • Good for all skin types

There is no limit to the different skin types available for lipo cavitation. It works safely and effectively, no matter your skin texture or skin tone. However, if you have any open wounds or skin ulcers in the treated area, your doctor will delay treatment until any skin damage has healed.


What are the risks of lipo cavitation?

Compared to traditional liposuction, lipo cavitation does not require surgery or anesthesia, and normal activities can be resumed immediately after treatment. This approach reduces the risks and side effects it may bring about.


The doctor will discuss your goals, assess your eligibility for treatment, and make sure you don't have an underlying medical condition. This method is not recommended for those with morbid obesity, and it works best for those who exercise regularly because it targets specific areas to remove excess fat.


Although this is a low-risk procedure, you may experience some temporary mild side effects. The details are as follows:


  • Bruising or redness

Visible bruising or redness of the skin may appear for the first few hours after lipo cavitation treatment. Some patients will have dark purple bruises or light red spots, so it varies from person to person, but it generally subsides and disappears after a few days.


  • Thirsty

Patients may feel thirsty after surgery. That is due to the natural removal of substances, so increasing water intake in the days following treatment is advisable to aid the removal process.


  • Sensitive skin  

The gel used before treatment and the ultrasound technology that penetrates the layers of the skin can sometimes cause skin sensitivity after treatment. You may experience itching or swelling, but this is temporary and will disappear in a few days.


  • Headache  

Headaches or dizziness are not uncommon, but they are caused by toxins released in the body. Staying hydrated and exercising after treatment can help excrete faster.



Q: Who is the ideal candidate for lipo cavitation?

A: Laser cavitation can give you beautiful results if you are at or near your ideal weight. It's also beneficial if you're not having success losing fat from your thighs, belly, hips, or other areas. This is also an appropriate treatment if you want dramatic results.


Q: Is lipo cavitation safe?

A: Lipo cavitation is an FDA-approved procedure that has been a breakthrough in non-surgical fat reduction technology.  Global statistics released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in 2018 show that non-invasive fat loss techniques are more attractive than surgical procedures, and the lipo cavitation market is expected to grow significantly by 2026.  


Lipo cavitation uses ultrasound waves from 40 kHz to 5 MHz to work on fat cells without causing any damage to other organs or tissue. The sound waves affect the cell membranes of fat cells, turning them into a fluid that is naturally eliminated through normal metabolic processes.


A slight buzzing sound from the ultrasound equipment can be heard during the treatment, but the patient will experience a mild discomfort and a warm sensation in the skin. Depending on the size of the surface area, an activity takes 20 to 50 minutes.


Q: How long can the result of lipo cavitation last?

A: Ultrasonic cavitation does not destroy adipocytes. You can achieve "slimming" of adipose tissue and "fitness" of the body. The method uses cavitation technology (ultrasound) to remove fat deposits, which can be difficult despite dieting and regular exercise. It just lets fat cells release their contents, which means these cells can store fat again. The effects will appear over a few weeks as your body clears the broken-down fatty tissue. It is not uncommon to reach 10 cm. Decrease at the end of the treatment course. If you adhere to a sound diet and exercise program, the results can be long-lasting. However, if a person overeats, drinks, or doesn't exercise, it's easy to deposit fat into tissues again. Final results may vary depending on an individual's tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and hormonal changes.


Q: Is lipo cavitation effective?

A: Lipo cavitation is the next best thing following RF. Unlike radiofrequency technology, which can only shrink fat cells and temporarily remove them, lipo cavitation uses ultrasound to implode fat cells and remove them permanently selectively.
