To understand the process of cavitation we must first identify what Cellulite is. Wikipedia gives us this definition;
Synonyms include: adiposis edematosa, dermopanniculosis deformans, status protrusus cutis, and gynoid lipodystrophy. Descriptive names for cellulite include orange peel syndrome, and cottage cheese skin.
The use of ultrasonic cavitation systems is one of the latest and most effective technologies for fat and cellulite reduction treatments. The machines are designed to focus high energy waves which effectively creates micro bubbles of vapour inside the adiposities and in the interstitial liquids of cellulite. This creates what is well known as a “cavitation effect”. Thanks to the liquid’s alternation of several phases which are; expansion and compression, the adiposities implode with the consequent release of water and fat into the surrounding tissue. This is then absorbed and meatabolized by the liver. The body in effect, effectively eats it’s own fat instead of storing it. An increase in thermal energy would be supposed to be a result but also a feeling of unwellness may be supposed as the body is “detoxifying”. It has been scientifically proven that cavitation is a very effective tool for fat removal, cellulite reduction, body shaping and skin tightening. Hence the popularity of cellulite cavitation machines in most medspas world wide. It must be stressed though that cavitation can never solely replace a healthy high-fibre diet and suitable exercise. It is also important to stay well hydrated as this helps the metabolisim of fats in the liver.
Ultrasonic assists in the reshaping of the body. Ultrasonic treatments are a non-invasive treatment, which is comfortable and painless. Other popular names for our Ultrasonic treatments are Lipo Cavitation or Fat Cavitation. Cavitation in not limited to women, many men are now making use of avitation treatments to assist in the removal of fatty hip deposits and overly large breast tissue. It can also help to reduce the need for a Gynecomastia operation for male chest fat reduction.
