Ultrasonic cavitation, also called ultrasonic lipolysis, is a body contouring treatment that is used to remove fat deposits under your skin. It can also be referred to by brand names, such as Liponix or Ultrashape.
This procedure is a safer alternative to surgical options, like liposuction. The treatment uses ultrasonic radio waves to break apart fat cells, which are then absorbed into your body by your lymphatic system.
Ultrasonic cavitation is different than other similar treatments, like ultrasound liposuction, because it doesn’t require any incisions. This means recovery is easier. It also means that results might be less noticeable.
The ideal candidate for ultrasonic cavitation:
is in good overall health
has realistic expectations
is already within 15 pounds of their goal weight
Ultrasonic cavitation is meant to target small areas of fat and help contour your body. It isn’t a treatment for people who are trying to lose a lot of weight.
Cryolipolysis is a scientific mechanism behind CoolSculpting, one of the most popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment. that involves CoolSculpting. Essentially, Cryolipolysis is the reduction of fat cells via exposure to cold temperatures. Often called “fat freezing”, Cryolipolysis is empirically shown to decrease resistant fat deposits that can’t be taken care of with exercise and diet. The results of Cryolipolysis are natural-looking and long-term, which provides a solution for notorious problem areas, like belly fat.
CoolSculpting uses an applicator to isolate an area of fat and expose it to precisely controlled temperatures that are cold enough to freeze the layer of subcutaneous fat but not cold enough to freeze the overlying tissue. These “frozen” fat cells then crystallize and that causes the cell membrane to split.
Destroying the actual fat cells means they can no longer store fat. It also sends a signal to the body’s lymphatic system, letting it know to collect the destroyed cells. This natural process takes place over several weeks and culminates once the fat cells leave the body as waste.
Cryolipolysis has some things in common with liposuction, mainly because both procedures remove fat cells from the body. The biggest difference between them is that Cryolipolysis causes metabolic processes to eliminate dead fat cells from the body. The liposuction uses a tube to suck fat cells out of the body.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
Electrical muscle stimulation, also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses.
The impulses are generated by a device and are delivered through electrodes on the skin near to the muscles being stimulated. The electrodes are generally pads that adhere to the skin. The impulses mimic the action potential that comes from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract.
