Body Contouring Body Contouring, or Ultrasonic cavitation, is a weight-loss treatment that uses low-frequency sound waves to break down fat cells. The process may result in a reduction in inches on the treated areas. Unlike liposuction treatment, which requires surgery to remove fat, ultrasonic cavitation is noninvasive and involves a much easier recovery.
During the ultrasonic cavitation procedure, machines target specific body areas with low-frequency sound waves. In some cases, light suction is also used. The ultrasound waves heat and vibrate the layer of fat cells below the skin’s surface, causing them to dislodge from your skin’s layers and break apart from each other. This is known as “cavitation.” The broken-down fatty acids are then absorbed through the bloodstream and lymphatic system and burned off as energy, resulting in a slimmer figure.
