Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much you exercise or how carefully and healthily you eat – one stubborn area of body fat just refuses to budge. And if you’re aiming for a particular look and want to take control, a non-invasive technique can help you do just that.
What Is Fat Cavitation?
Fat cavitation, also known as body cavitation or ultrasound cavitation, uses ultrasound technology to convert fat stores into liquid. This helps your body process the fat stores much easier through the liver, where they are removed as a waste product through the urine.
Exercise and a healthy diet combined make it easier to remove some areas of fat than others. The stomach, for example, holds onto fat with a tighter grip than, say, the face or arms. So, despite leading a healthy lifestyle, it can be difficult to achieve your ideal aesthetic.
With fat cavitation, you can direct the ultrasonic waves toward stubborn fatty areas or cellulite, giving you more control over your body.
What Areas Of The Body Will Fat Cavitation Help?
Fat cavitation is good for areas of the body that can build up fat stores and develop cellulite easily. Areas such as the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, and hips are great places for fat cavitation. It’s not possible to use this technique on bony areas, such as the head and neck.
How Long Does Fat Cavitation Take to Work?
Fat cavitation is a unique journey for every client. It depends on the body area as well as the amount of fat being treated. Some clients may see a noticeable difference after the first session; however, it can take up to 3 sessions before you see any results.
The complete fat cavitation course can take as few as three sessions up to as many as 12 – the exact number will depend on the individual circumstances. It’s advisable to leave some time between sessions, with 72 hours as the minimum recommended break. This is to give your body time to work through the liquified fat without overwhelming your liver. It also gives you time to recover from the effects of pressure applied during the sessions.
Once you have completed your sessions, it’s important to note that increasing calorie consumption or reducing exercise can result in fatty stores building up again.
What Is the Recovery Period?
The ultrasound technology used during fat cavitation means applying some pressure onto your body to penetrate deep into the fatty stores. This can leave you feeling tender, sore, and possibly bruised after each session. These effects don’t last long but are a common side effect of fat cavitation sessions.
Unlike liposuction or other invasive methods, as a non-invasive (non-surgical) method of controlling fat and cellulite, there is no healing time associated with fat cavitation.
What Should I Do After Fat Cavitation?
Maintaining your exercise and healthy eating plan will prevent new fat cells from being produced. In the days after your session, you can do some intense cardio to help your body burn off the fat faster. You might also consider a lymphatic massage to help recover from the sessions.
Is Fat Cavitation Worthwhile?
If you already lead a healthy lifestyle and are looking to remove stubborn areas of fat and cellulite, fat cavitation can help you define your body shape and create contours where you want them. It doesn’t work well on its own for weight management or weight loss, as any excess of calories can lead to fatty deposits building up again.
As a non-invasive procedure, some may find it preferable to invasive surgical techniques that require – sometimes significant – recovery periods.
