What is cavitation?

Cavitation is an apparatus method of ultrasonic liposuction, one of the modern methods of local fat deposits affection and cellulite treatment. Сavitas (from Latin) means cavity, emptiness. The method of acoustic cavitation is used in hardware cosmetology. The essence of the technique is the impact of low-frequency ultrasound on adipose tissue, during which the cavitation effect occurs: formation of a large number of microcavities followed by their collapse. During collapse, a hydrodynamic impulse is formed, the impulse destroys adipocyte membranes (fat cells) and releases triglycerides from the cells. Products of fatty tissue decay are excreted through lymphatic and circulatory systems. Other cells and tissues (muscle fibrils, epidermal cells, endothelium of vessels, etc.) are not damaged during cavitation as they are much stronger and have a high elasticity coefficient. In addition, by means of ultrasonic waves and cavitation effect, it is possible to ensure the destruction of fibrous carcass forming cellulite zones, improve metabolic processes, enhance microcirculation and lymphatic drainage of tissues.

Duration of one session is 40 minutes. 2-7 sessions are recommended as ideal course duration. The procedure is comfortably tolerated. Subjectively, during the procedure, a patient notes a feeling of heat and light itching in the area of exposure, as well as low-frequency ultrasonic vibration, which in some cases may cause discomfort. The effect of ultrasonic liposuction is equated to surgical one, as the destroyed fat cells in the treated area are not restored after the procedure. Clinically, volume and weight reduction occurs during the first week after the procedure, prolonging and increasing within 1-2 months. To enhance the effect of complex therapy, it is recommended to follow the drinking regime, motor activity, use drainage procedures (LPG, pressotherapy - excretion of fatty cells decay products).
