What is it?
The ultrasounds create heat within the tissues as well as a compression and decompression effect, which causes the formation of microbubbles in the cells. When these microbubbles implode, they damage the cells in which they were formed, which dissolve.
It is possible to "calibrate" the ultrasound in order to harm only the fat cells, causing them to break and release their content, which is then expelled through the metabolism.
Another weapon against cellulite
What is it?
Ultrasounds are calibrated so as to affect only the fat cells. The effect is similar to liposculpture surgery, but is not invasive and is performed on an outpatient basis.
The cavitation treatment is indicated for adiposity in the buttocks, thighs, abdomen, arms and legs. In general, it is excellent in combating cellulite.
A gel which favors the transmission of ultrasound within the tissues is applied to the parts to be treated. Through the use of a hand piece, we allow for the penetration of ultrasounds with slow, circular movements. It is important that the physician has properly set the power and depth of the action of the waves depending on the defect to be corrected. At Academia Day Clinic, the specialists are highly skilled and delicate during these operations.
After treatment, a massage that promotes drainage of the treated area is recommended. The effects of cavitation can be increased by associating it with other treatments, such as carboxytherapy.
From 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the treated area and the depth of cavitation.
Some people show a loss of a few centimeters from the very first session. In general, we foresee 5-6 sessions every 7-15 days.
Throughout the year, it is possible to undergo 2-3 cycles of cavitation.
The treatment removes existing fat cells but doesn't prevent the formation of new ones.
If maintenance is not performed or if correct nutritional and physical habits are not adopted, the lipid droplets that are eliminated can recreate in time.
Treatment with cavitation is generally very well tolerated. Although it is very rare, the patient may ask that the session be interrupted. A swelling of the treated area may appear, although it disappears within 7-10 days.
For a pure measure of caution, it is preferable to abstain from treatment during pregnancy, and if you suffer from severe lipid disorders, liver disease, and kidney disease.
