Ultrasonic Cavitation

Ultrasonic cavitation is a minimally invasive alternative to tumescent liposuction that uses ultrasonic waves to turn fat cells into free fatty acids, which are easier for the body to get rid of.

How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?

During an ultrasonic cavitation procedure, noninvasive machines target specific body areas with low-frequency sound waves (they’re what put the “ultrasonic” in “ultrasonic cavitation”) and, in some cases, light suction. This process heats and vibrates the layer of fat cells below the skin’s surface. The pressure eventually causes the fat cells to liquefy and release their contents into the bloodstream.

Routinely Performed on the:

  • stomach
  • hips
  • face
  • neck
  • upper arms
  • thigh areas

Quick Facts

  • Ultrasonic cavitation is a cosmetic procedure that’s used to break apart fat deposits in your body.
  • The treatment claims to work as an effective, less invasive alternative to liposuction.
  • Very few risks are associated with this procedure, but that doesn’t mean that there are no side effects.
  • Ultrasonic cavitation is advertised as being extremely convenient because recovery is minimal and side effects are rare.
