Traditionally, fat removal has been achieved through methods like liposuction, which are invasive and require significant downtime.
What is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
A Modern Approach
Ultrasonic cavitation is a non-invasive method that uses ultrasonic waves to break down fat cells, offering a less risky and more comfortable alternative to traditional methods.
The Science of Ultrasonic Waves
How They Work
Ultrasonic waves are sound waves with frequencies higher than the upper audible limit of human hearing. These waves have the ability to penetrate skin and fat layers, targeting fat cells specifically.
Mechanism of Fat Removal
The Process Explained
The ultrasonic waves cause the fat cells to vibrate and heat up, eventually breaking them down into free fatty acids and glycerol, which are then naturally eliminated by the body.
Benefits Over Traditional Methods
Why Choose Ultrasonic Cavitation?
