Cavitation is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses ultrasound technology to reduce fat cells in targeted parts of the body.
It is the preferred option for anyone who does not want to undergo extreme options such as liposuction, as it is does not involve any needles or surgery.
In addition to that, it has zero recovery time and is painless - often taking less than an hour. The session usually feels like a massage with a handheld device, and you see a reduction of 1-4 cm's with every session in the treated area.
An ultrasound device similar to that used in pregnancy scans is applied to the targeted area, along with a specially designed cream. This device transmits concentrated levels of ultrasonic energy that target and destroy subcutaneous fat cells in the fat cell membrane. The fat is then dispersed into surrounding cells and recycled into proteins and glycerol.
Hydrogenation is the chemical process that changes liquid oils into solid fats. The tide is turning against trans-fats. Since January 2006, all food manufacturers are required to list trans-fat content on food labels.
Ultrasonic refers to sound frequency. An Ultrasonic Cavitation handpiece will make a sound we cannot hear while it is vibrating. We measure the vibration times per second as sound frequency, and refer to this as Hertz. Humans can hear from 20 hertz to 20,000 hertz. We are unable to hear anything above or below these levels. Therefore, sound waves with frequency above 20,000 hertz we call Ultrasonic. A Megahertz is 1,000,000 hertz; we refer to as MHz. Usually an ultrasonic frequency of 1 MHz to 5 MHz is used for various medical treatments. The lower the megahertz the stronger the treatment. It is highly penetrative and directional.
The vibration of ion (positive and negative alternation of sound waves) produces a strong wave of pressure to fat cell membranes. Usually a fat cell membrane cannot withstand this pressure, it will explode into the liquid content. This liquid product leaves the body through the normal channels of the body's metabolism.
Ultrasonic Cavitation results are due to the quantity of fat cells being destroyed and removed from the body's environment for fat storage.
Ultrasonic cavitation technology enables concentrated sonic energy to be directed only at localized treatment areas, and is thus capable of selectively disrupting the subcutaneous fat cells through thousands of microscopic implosions impacting the fat cell membranes.
After breakdown of adipose tissue (fat cell membrane), the fat is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where they are enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water-soluble glycerol travels into the circulatory system used for new energy generation whereas the insoluble free fatty acids enter the liver where they are decomposed like any other simple fatty acid.
The treatments are non-invasive, no freezing, no bruising, and completely pain free with guaranteed results.
