There are a number of weight loss techniques on the market, some more dubious than the others. However, ultrasonic fat cavitation is one of those procedures that are marked with clear science that makes sense at first glance.
WHAT IS FAT CAVITATION?
Ultrasonic fat cavitation is a non-invasive, painless procedure used to effect the breakdown of fat cells, a procedure called lipolysis. The fat cells are broken down into triglycerides, which the body can then convert into glycerol and fatty acids, which can either be metabolised or excreted.
Of all the methods of weight loss that target fat, fat cavitation is backed up by solid science. The procedure uses ultrasonic waves of 1 MHz and 40 kHz to break down the fat cells in our body. Because of the low frequency of the acoustic waves, they can safely penetrate the skin and get directly absorbed by the fat. The procedure does not cause damage to blood vessels, nerves, or connective tissue.
BENEFITS OF FAT CAVITATION
The best method for weight loss is dieting and exercise. Keeping a healthy lifestyle and diet is the best way to maintain good health and weight. However, many people who are overweight find it hard to even get started. Surgical weight loss options like liposuction are expensive and risky. To the contrary, fat cavitation is painless and does not require any recovery time. Because the ultrasound waves break down the fats naturally, the by products are either metabolised by the body as nutrition or excreted.
The procedure is scientifically proven to work and because it simply starts a natural process by which the body burns fats, it has no side effects whatsoever. The process of lipolysis starts about 6 hours after the procedure has been completed. Ultrasound fat cavitation is effective for small areas at a time, such as upper arms, shoulders, love handles, and buttocks. A full course of the treatment typically spans anywhere between 6 to 10 sessions with a week between each session. Each session typically lasts 30 minutes.
Ultrasound fat cavitation also does not have any impact on the nervous system. Therefore, once your fat is gone it stays gone (as long as you do not put it back there).
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
Ultrasound fat cavitation does not rid your body of “weight”. It simply converts fats into energy directly without having to put your body in caloric stress. So, after your session, you are expected to get some healthy activity and exercise to actually use up the newly freed up energy. If you do not do this, your body will re-convert that energy into fat and you would have wasted your money.
Ultrasound fat cavitation typically costs around $250 to $350 per session. These services can be availed in either clinics or in wellness spas. Do remember before you go in that no procedure can miraculously zap excess weight. In the long run, maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle is the key to staying fit and not overweight.
