involves uses an ultrasound device to perform the procedure. During the actual procedure, a small amount of gel is applied to the skin where excess fat needs to be removed. Then the ultrasound device is applied to the skin during a 50 minute treatment session.
It’s a painless outpatient procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia and has few known negative side effects. The 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 procedure, ultrasonic waves begin to break down the fat cells being targeted. This causes them to release triglycerides and other fatty substances that are a key component of the flabby tissue.
During the week after a lipo cavitation treatment, your body will process the excess triglycerides and fatty substances through normal physiological processes.
