What is Lipo Cavitation Treatment?

  • Lipo Cavitation is a non-intrusive treatment; you won’t be poked, prodded, or injected with anything. Instead, a medical professional uses an ultrasound device to perform the procedure.

During the Lipo Cavitation procedure, a small amount of gel is applied to the skin in the area where excess fat needs to be removed. Then the ultrasound handheld device is applied to the skin during a 20 to 30-minute treatment session. It’s a painless outpatient procedure that doesn’t require anaesthesia and has very few known negative side effects.

How Does Lipo Cavitation Work?

An ultrasound device called a transducer, used in Lipo Cavitation procedures is calibrated only to target fat cells. When ultrasonic waves are directed to the area of fatty tissue you want to remove, they damage the fat cell membranes. Because the device is calibrated only to target fat cells, no other damage will occur to surrounding tissues or organs.

During the Lipo Cavitation procedure, ultrasonic waves begin to break down the fat cells being targeted. This causes the release of triglycerides and other fatty substances that are a key component of the flabby body tissue. During the week after a lipo cavitation treatment, your body will process the excess triglycerides and fatty body substances through normal physiological processes.

How Many Lipo Cavitation Treatments are Needed?

Most people who choose to have Lipo Cavitation will see measurable reductions in fat within the first week. 

However, a treatment schedule of 10 to 20 weekly sessions is typical to achieve desired weight loss* and body composition changes, according to a study in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery.

Before your first treatment, you’ll meet with your doctor for a physical exam and consultation. In most cases, the ideal candidate for Lipo Cavitation is someone who is at least moderately active and follows a healthy diet. Lipo Cavitation is not intended to treat* morbid obesity but works most effectively to remove* unwanted fat from targeted areas of the body. If you are a good candidate for lipo cavitation, your doctor will discuss your goals and desired body image, and then establish a treatment plan to meet your needs.

What Can Areas of the Body be Treated with Lipo Cavitation?

Common treatment areas of the body, where Lipo Cavitation is used, include the abdomen, face, neck, back, cheeks, thighs, chin, hips, upper arms and buttocks. It has also been used for treating men to reduce excess breast tissue in overweight men.

What to do Before and After Treatment Lipo Cavitation?

Ideally, Before Lipo Cavitation, you should already be moderately active and eat a healthy diet. In the week before a treatment session, most doctors will recommend that patients drink about eight glasses of water daily, avoid Alcohol, and tanning. And it’s important to follow these recommendations. Adequate fluids are needed to help your body process the excess fat and triglycerides that will be released as a result of the Lipo Cavitation procedure.

You must avoid Alcohol as Alcohol will limit liver function needed to process these substances. Tanning before treatment can make your skin ultra-sensitive to the ultrasonic waves used in the treatment.

After Lipo Cavitation treatment, you must continue to drink adequate amounts of water and getting regular exercise to help your body process the excess triglycerides and fatty substances to be released from your body to benefit from the Lipo Cavitation treatment fully.

What are the Side Effects of Lipo Cavitation Treatment?

The known side effects of Lipo Cavitation are minimal, compared to surgical liposuction. For most people, the treatment is painless and doesn’t require any recovery time. You may experience temporary short term skin sensitivity, mild bruising, fluid build-up, or blisters where the transducer was used.
