Ultrasonic Cavitation FAQs

What is ultrasonic cavitation?
It is a relatively new surgical technique that allows to reduce localized fat, breaking the bonds that form the fat cells, which your body will dispose of through the urinary tract.

Since when is cavitation practiced in the world?

Ultrasonic cavitation has been presented for the first time in Milan in 2005 (under the Italian name “Cavitazione Estetica”), although the physical phenomenon called cavitation is known since the ’60s.

Is ultrasonic cavitation painful?
No, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but do not cause pain. The heat caused by the equipment is perfectly tolerable.

Is ultrasonic cavitation a safe treatment?
Yes, it is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or need post-operative course) and it allows to make full social life both before and after the sessions. But remember always to carefully choose the center where you undergo it.

Which are the areas where treatment is more effective?
All those areas with localized fat: thighs, abdomen and buttocks are the most appropriate but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body.

Can you lose weight with ultrasonic cavitation?
Cavitation is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, the famous “love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise.

What are the contraindications of ultrasonic cavitation?
There are no special contraindications, although those with cardiac and vascular diseases, pacemaker carriers and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid undergoing it. Always consult a doctor before taking the decision.

Are the results of ultrasonic cavitation similar to those of liposuction?
Yes, because it removes cellulite preventing this from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system.

The fat is a solid substance, how can it be eliminated through the urine?
Because ultrasonic cavitation causes an emulsification of the fat, converting it into a substance easy to eliminate through the urine and the lymphatic system.

Must you follow any guidelines before or after undergoing ultrasonic cavitation?
We recommend a low calorie diet and drink at least 1.5 liters of water before and after the session. Drinking water is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat.

How much time should elapse between one session of ultrasonic cavitations and the other?
The body eliminates the fat of a session in 72 hours, so we recommend an interval of 4 days between session and session.

How many sessions are usually needed?
Between 8 and 12 sessions, you will be able to appreciate the results from the third session on.

How can we improve the results?
With the application of gel during the session, based on phosphatidylcholine and carnitine.
