Getting older can often be a good thing – you can finally say that you know yourself, you know what you want and what you love, and you don’t waste time on things that don’t matter to you. Getting older, however, has its bad sides too: our eyesight gets weaker, our skin loses its youthful glow and elasticity, and we put on weight much easier because our metabolisms slow down. Diet and exercise are effective, but sometimes we need better and faster results. In comes fat cavitation and saves the day.
The Definition of Fat Cavitation
This is a revolutionary procedure that started in Europe and quickly spread all over the world. Fat cavitation is here to help you get rid of excess fat without the extensive risks which liposuction has. It doesn’t require anesthesia and leaves no scars behind. What is more, most patients say that this procedure isn’t uncomfortable and it doesn’t have downtime, but it results in instant fat-cell loss.
The best thing is that it’s not only effective for fat reduction, but it can help with cellulite treatments as well. Ultrasound is used to destroy fat cells in specific parts of the body, and the treatment is straightforward and easy to undergo.
The Way the Treatments Work
Fat cavitation treatments are done with low-frequency ultrasound which resembles the ultrasound machines that are used to monitor the baby during pregnancy. They can target specific areas where stubborn fat cells are stored and they won’t affect the surrounding tissue and muscles.
The ultrasound puts a strong wave of pressure against the fat cell membranes which causes them to disintegrate and become liquid. Your body is then able to use its lymphatic system to move this liquid all the way to the liver, and liver recycles it and uses as energy.
Target Problem Areas
The best thing about fat cavitation is that it can be used on any area of the body which has more than 3cms of fat. This means that if you struggle with fat on a particular part of your body: stomach, arms, calves, thighs, buttocks, and back, you will be able to treat it without affecting the surrounding tissue.
While the procedure is considered painless and comfortable, you might experience a slight discomfort during the treatment because there will be a specific noise spreading inside your body. Still, it isn’t harmful in any way and the moment the applicator isn’t in contact with your skin, the noise stops.
When the Magic Starts Happening
Sessions aren’t too long, approximately 40 minutes each. While the results will be visible immediately afterward, they won’t last, so it’s recommended you undergo at least 8 fat cavitation treatments. One treatment per week is enough, so after two months you will have lasting results. While there won’t be any downtime, there might be some redness after the procedure in the treated area, but it’s not permanent. Any of the symptoms should be resolved within two hours after the treatment is finished.
Before and After Treatment
Before the procedure, you should be moderately active (walking, riding a bike, or swimming regularly) and eat a healthy diet. You will need to drink more water to help your body process the excess fat, and you should avoid alcohol as it limits liver function.
Also, you should avoid tanning at least a week before the treatment because it can make your skin sensitive to the ultrasonic waves. Afterwards, keep drinking at least eight glasses of water and exercise regularly.
Stubborn cellulite and fat aren’t always dangerous for our health, but they are annoying and can ruin your self-esteem. If you need a helping hand to get back in shape and finally get your youthful figure back, don’t hesitate to consult a professional. Sometimes we only need a little ‘magic’ touch to make our dreams come true.
