Ultrasonic Cavitation Q&A

What is ultrasonic cavitation?

Ultrasonic cavitation is a treatment to reduce body fat without surgery, incisions, or downtime. This treatment uses cutting-edge ultrasound equipment to send targeted radiofrequency energy into fat deposits without harming or affecting the other tissue nearby. 

The radiofrequency energy causes tiny pressure bubbles within targeted fat cells. The pressure bubbles break open, forcing the fat cells to collapse. The damaged fat cell shells release their liquefied contents. This ultimately leads to a reduction in body fat and a more contoured physique. 

The radiofrequency energy also works to tighten and firm the skin, which means you don't have to worry about skin sagging as the fat leaves your body.

Which areas does ultrasonic cavitation treat?

Ultrasonic cavitation can eliminate deposits of stubborn fat — the fat that doesn't respond to diet and exercise. With ultrasonic cavitation, you can target this fat without surgery. The main treatment areas are:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles) 
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Backs of thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms

Ultrasonic cavitation can also treat other areas of stubborn fat, so if you're struggling with fat deposits in spite of weight loss and exercise, this treatment could work for you.

How long does it take for ultrasonic cavitation to work?

Once the radiofrequency energy melts the fat cells, your body eliminates that liquid as waste. It typically takes 6-12 weeks to see the final results of your ultrasonic fat reduction treatment. 

How many ultrasonic fat reduction treatments will I need?

The number of ultrasonic fat reduction treatments needed depends on how much fat you want to lose. For dramatic fat reduction, Compassionate Health Med Spa usually recommends multiple sessions at 72-hour intervals. 

What is recovery like after ultrasonic cavitation?

There's no downtime after ultrasonic cavitation, but Compassionate Health Med Spa gives you some detailed instructions to help you achieve the best results. 

This includes drinking a lot of water, as it helps your lymphatic system eliminate the fat. You may also need to wear a compression garment for a short period to move the process along.
