Ultrasonic Cavitation vs Cryolipolysis: Which Is Better?

Side by side comparison of an Ultrasonic Cavitation and Cryolipolysis treatment with the title "Cavitation vs. Cryolipolysis"

Are you looking for non-invasive treatments to shape your body?

Or are you wondering which body contouring treatment is more effective?

In this article, we will explore the advantages of both Ultrasonic Cavitation (ultrasonic lipolysis) and Cryolipolysis (fat freezing), so you can choose the best treatment for your needs.


Fat freezing uses controlled cooling to destroy fat cells. This treatment is best suited for the spot reduction of fat. We recommend 1-3 treatments for optimal results, with full effects taking up to 3 months. As this procedure destroys fat cells, results achieved through cryolipolysis are permanent.

Ultrasonic Cavitation

Ultrasonic Cavitation uses ultrasound waves to rupture fat cells, causing their contents to spill out. The body then removes the waste over the next three days. Results are almost immediate, with 6-10 treatments recommended for optimal results. The fat cavitation treatment is better suited for larger areas of the body.

So, which is better?

In a 2019 study, a team of four Egyptian researchers from the Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, revealed that both Ultrasonic Cavitation and Cryolipolysis are safe and effective fat reduction procedures. However, Cryolipolysis showed slightly better results compared to Ultrasonic Cavitation.

It comes down to your specific needs. Are you looking to flatten out stubborn fat bulges for a more contoured appearance, or are you looking to reduce the overall fat over a larger area?

As long as you are using each treatment for its intended purpose, you really can’t go wrong with either option.
