Ultrasonic Cavitation is a technology for the breakdown of the fat deposits.

These procedures do not involve invasive surgery - there is no need for anesthesia, hospital stay and no down time. They provide a non-invasive method to break down stubborn fat deposits that never seem to disappear no matter what your diet is or how hard you exercise. The most problematic body areas are abdomen, flanks (love handles), inner thighs, buttocks, inner knees, under chin and upper arm.

Appointments are usually scheduled 1-2 times a week. In order to ensure maximum results, it is necessary to follow the recommended treatment schedule. The total number of treatments will vary between individuals. On occasion, there are patients that do not respond to treatments.

Ultrasound cavitation is not recommended for pregnant women, even though there is no conclusive evidence whether or not it puts the fetus in danger. According to Physicians Weight Loss Centers in Northeast Philadelphia, the sound waves released during the procedure may very likely damage the hearing of the unborn child, and have a negative effect on the child’s immune system. Also, as mother’s milk takes the necessary nutrients from her body, it may be dangerous to undergo ultrasound cavitation because toxins may end up in the mother’s milk and then enter the body of the baby while nursing.

Fat Cavitation is not a treatment for obesity nor is it a weight loss procedure. Rather is a method for ‘reshaping’ and ‘toning’ the body. It is particularly intended to reduce localized fat tissues which are resistant to exercise around the abdomen (love handles), buttocks, and thighs (saddle bags), that won’t easily go away by simple dieting and exercise.

Ultrasonic Cavitation can be used on the following problem areas:
~ Abdomen Flanks (Love Handles)
~ Thighs (Saddle Bags, Inner & Outer)
~ Buttocks
~ Upper Arms
~ Waist (Love Handles)
~ Back (Bra Line)
~ Hips (Saddle Bags)

What are the ‘contraindications’ with Ultrasonic Cavitation?

Ultrasonic cavitation treatment is not for everybody. Even though it is a safe and painless procedure, nevertheless there are contraindications for using cavitation devices for treatment of localized fat. Such contraindications will depend on the individual’s medical history. Thus people with kidney failure, liver failure, heart disease, carrying a pacemaker, pregnancy, lactation, etc. are not suitable candidates for the cavitation treatment.

What Guidelines should I follow pre-treatment and, post treatment?

Please try to drink plenty of water. Drinking water is a necessary part of the treatment to facilitate the elimination of the broken down fat. Maintain a low calorie diet for a few days after the treatment to ensure that the energy released by the treatment is properly utilized and metabolized by the body. After the treatment patients are able to return to their daily activities as usual.

However, for ultrasound cavitation to be risk-free, you need to follow the pre and post treatment instructions. These can include:

  • Not sun tanning just before the treatment (because then your skin may be damaged and you may experience pain during and after the procedure).
  • Not having a shower right after the treatment.
  • Drinking lots of water before and after (improves the chances of success).
