Ultrasonic cavitation – express correction of problem areas

Cavitation is a relatively new method in cosmetology. But, despite his young history, he managed to win the trust of many patients who were tired of fighting excess fat deposits using classical methods. The effectiveness of the method is confirmed by reviews from those who managed to try the technology on themselves and were satisfied with the result.

Experts note that with cavitation it is possible to neutralize the appearance of cellulite even faster than using many alternative techniques.

In addition to the fight against extra pounds in certain areas of the body, the technique successfully copes with leveling the seemingly unattractive “orange peel”. All together, this guarantees an excellent external effect, as well as elasticity of the skin, ready to absorb nutrients with a vengeance. It’s not for nothing that before and after photographs amaze with the dramatic changes.

The essence of the procedure


  • The essence of the procedure
  • How does weight loss happen?
  • Prohibitions on cavitation
  • Benefits of manipulation
  • Maximum efficiency

Initially, the principle of cavitation was used only in an industrial environment, when it was necessary to clean the surface of some parts from extensive or old contaminants. Over time, scientists realized that ultrasonic power could easily cope even with the destruction and dispersion of solids. Because of this, fuel mixtures and emulsions began to be created using a well-known physical algorithm.

After the mechanism of action was successfully introduced into devices for water purification, technicians began to think that the basics of cavitation would be useful in medicine. This is how the idea was born to extract stones localized in the gallbladder, kidneys, and bladder using the presented physical law. The same thing works for cleaning purulent cavities and for disinfecting solutions. The next step was bloodless operations, which prompted scientists to think about the possibility of using the principle in aesthetic medicine to combat fat.

Now a device for bloodless liposuction can be found in many medical centers and aesthetic cosmetology offices. The essence of the method is based on the effect of low-frequency ultrasonic waves on a specific area of ​​fat deposits. Since the action is based on acoustic waves, in a matter of minutes the device provokes the formation of air bubbles in fat cells. First, the problem cells increase in size, and then gradually displace fat molecules.

Another useful property is damage to the cell membranes of adipocytes. First of all, cells that are filled with fatty deposits come under aggressive attack. As soon as the pressure on them increases due to high voltage, the fat molecules that have fallen outside the cell boundaries flow into the intercellular space.

Then they have only one way - through the lymphatic system and blood vessels, which is the key to naturally getting rid of the hated cellulite. But the most important advantage of such a treatment program compared to other modern analogues is safety in relation to healthy parts of the body. The muscles, blood vessels, skin and ligaments surrounding the fat deposits are not affected at all by the stretching of unnecessary elements. The explanation lies in the physiological characteristics of the human body, because healthy tissues are much stronger and more elastic than those damaged by fat.

Safety has been confirmed in numerous scientific studies, which proves the productivity of the process. For such high results, you will have to pay a little more than what is offered by centers specializing in traditional options for “orange peel” removal. The price will also depend on the accompanying set of procedures.

Some cosmetologists offer various preparatory complexes, as well as rehabilitation products, to improve performance. They are aimed at restoring the skin's former elasticity, which will acquire its original elasticity instead of sagging and gray tint.


Cavitation is performed to solve problems in the following areas of the body:

  • face - for tightening contours;
  • neck - increasing skin elasticity, eliminating folds;
  • hands - fat removal;
  • abdomen and side folds - reduction in volume up to 3 cm in one procedure;


Ultrasound cavitation is not performed on the lower abdomen, in the areas where the reproductive organs are located.

  • back and buttocks - removal of fat folds and cellulite;
  • hips - reduction in volume, pronounced “orange peel” and skin unevenness.

Experts recommend cavitation if there is:

  • body mass index, BMI, is higher than normal, which indicates the onset of obesity;
  • pronounced cellulite;
  • violation of the ratio of waist and hip volumes, local fat deposits on the back, arms, legs;
  • the presence of wen;
  • subcutaneous defects after liposuction.

How does weight loss happen?

Despite many offers to conduct a cavitation session at home yourself, you should not agree to such dubious experiments with your own health. The procedure should only be carried out by an experienced doctor, who will take into account the body characteristics of each patient, recommend the best means for the rehabilitation period, calculating the number of sessions required to achieve the desired result.

To make the effect brighter, a special lipolytic gel is applied to the skin before the manipulation.

It helps reduce the percentage of friction that occurs between the working nozzle and the treated area. The gel also acts as a catalyst for the breakdown of harmful fat cells. Next, the specialist takes the device, choosing the optimal mode based on the area of ​​the skin and the degree of obesity, in order to move the working handpiece over the surface. Before making an appointment, patients should learn basic information about this innovative intervention:

  • the average period of one session is about 25 minutes;
  • the maximum duration is 60 minutes without the risk of possible overheating;
  • the interval between visits is at least 10 days;
  • the course of treatment will require 3 to 4 visits;
  • repeating the course is possible only after six months;
  • repeated therapy including a program with 1-3 sessions.

The phenomenon, adapted to the needs of those suffering from fat deposits, will be able to demonstrate the first positive changes in the very first day. And in the next couple of days, especially if you comply with all the conditions, you will be able to achieve maximum productivity. No even strong home therapy can guarantee such a good outcome of the enterprise.

Despite the fact that the measure is positioned as a fighter against fat layers, it does not have much effect on weight loss. Instead, it is working to reduce volumes. This oddity is easily explained from a biological point of view, since adipose tissue has a reduced density. This means that while packing a lot of volume, it is still quite lightweight.

If we translate the average values ​​for fat loss in its pure form, it will be about 15 cubic meters. cm of deposits, which equates to 3-5 cm of waist circumference. And to speed up the process of achieving the desired shape, you will need to adhere to the rules of an active lifestyle.

An important factor for stabilizing health and maintaining a slim silhouette is a proper diet and adherence to the drinking regime. The emphasis should be on the days before the actual visit to the medical center and immediately after. But if lifting teaches the patient to always adhere to the canons established by doctors, then the effect will be long-term, having a positive impact on well-being.

Contraindications and side effects

Cavitation is not a harmless procedure and is carried out only after consultation with a doctor. Absolute contraindications to its implementation are:

  • pregnancy and breastfeeding;
  • oncology;
  • diabetes;
  • dysfunction of the kidneys, liver, diseases of the cardiovascular system;
  • skin diseases at the sites of exposure;
  • diseases of the reproductive system;
  • osteoporosis;
  • weakened immunity, allergic reactions, chronic infectious diseases.

Cavitation is not recommended during periods of acute respiratory viral infection, menstruation, poor health, or taking paracetamol and ibuprofen.

Side effects are rare, but possible:

  1. Inflammatory reactions of internal organs due to the entry of lipids into the lymph flow.
  2. Dehydration of the body, because the breakdown of fats requires a lot of oxygen. To prevent this, it is recommended to drink at least 1 liter of water before the procedure.
  3. Increased load on the liver due to toxins during the breakdown of lipids.
  4. Increased blood sugar levels and temporary pancreatic dysfunction.

Important to remember!

Failure to follow recommendations for proper nutrition and drinking regimen after cavitation can lead to nausea, dizziness, as well as the growth of wen - benign tumors of adipose tissue.

Prohibitions on cavitation

The presented way to achieve the desired slimness is practically the only effective non-surgical method of aesthetic cosmetology that directly affects adipose tissue. What adds to its popularity is safety and relative painlessness with a shortened rehabilitation period.

Popularly, cavitation has received a second name - non-surgical liposuction, which once again proves the productivity of the method.

But before making an appointment at a cosmetology office, you should definitely make sure that the person wishing to do so does not have any possible contraindications. Relative and absolute prohibitions cover:

  • pregnancy;
  • diabetes;
  • osteoporosis;
  • oncological tumors of a benign or malignant nature of any location;
  • destabilization of the functionality of the cardiovascular system such as phlebitis, vascular fragility and hypertension;
  • skin diseases;
  • liver and kidney failure;
  • the presence of implants with metal elements.

If the patient is diagnosed with any of the above-mentioned deviations, then it is easier for him to go for a specialized massage with a smaller list of contraindications. And in some conditions you will simply need to wait for more favorable circumstances.

Separately, doctors remind you that you should not use ultrasound radiation in the area of ​​joints, eyes, ears, genitals and glands. But even if latent contraindications do not emerge during the examination, you should still first consult with your doctor about obtaining permission to undergo cavitation.

Ultrasonic cavitation or LPG massage - which is more effective?

LPG massage, endermolifting is one of the types of non-surgical hardware procedures for combating cellulite and excess weight. It can be vacuum, vacuum-roller and anti-cellulite.


The cavitation effect acts on the fat cell from the inside. Endermolifting is based on external mechanical impact on the body using rotating manipulators.

Destruction of deposits and increase in skin tone occurs due to the vacuum that the device creates when pressed. Unlike cavitation, LPG massage affects not only fat cells, but also surrounding tissues. Therefore, the procedure causes more discomfort and is more traumatic. To protect the skin during the session, the patient wears a special suit.

The choice between cavitation and LPG massage depends on what problems the patient has.

Benefits of manipulation

Complete non-invasiveness is the first positive quality of the intervention, which will appeal to those who are not ready to endure severe pain and possible scars after surgery.

The effectiveness of the technique has been proven during scientific experiments and by numerous satisfied clients. The good news is that the reduction in volumes is happening gradually. This allows the skin to adapt to changed shapes without stretching, sagging or losing its original elasticity.

When trying to remove deposits of fat on the sides of the abdomen, a person can count on the fact that the ultrasound approach will simultaneously trigger a restoration mechanism in the body.

Blood microcirculation will also improve, which will be the key to prompt delivery of nutrients to different layers of tissue.

Those who seek such help confirm that after visiting a cosmetologist they receive an even skin texture without bruising or swelling. The latter are the prerogative of massages, which are sometimes carried out with a disproportionately applied force by the master, which is not provided for in case of cavitation.


In two procedures, plus “it went away on its own,” I think I lost even more than 6 centimeters in my problem area at that time—my stomach.
This procedure will not work in real life and will only be a waste of money if lymphatic drainage is not done immediately after it. This is the law, the rule, this is how it should be.

A mandatory rule is to drink at least two liters of water per day during the entire course of procedures.

You also need to remember that centimeters are lost most successfully in the abdominal area. Hips, especially the so-called “breeches,” are very difficult to undergo this procedure.

In the reviews I saw phrases like “then it comes back”... This procedure gives an effect, but requires you to have an active lifestyle and a healthy diet.

When the device is applied to the skin, there is a very strong ringing in the head, even a squeak, I would say. Very unpleasant.

When applied to the skin, it is slightly compressed, and you need to lie on your side. This applies to procedures on the abdomen, hips and arms. It was in these areas that I had cavitation done. But not all at once. The first procedure was on the thighs, and the second on the stomach and arms.

The procedure can be done no more than once a week. It can affect the liver, there are contraindications.

Immediately after the procedure, a pressotherapy session is required. This way the procedure will be more effective. And you also need to drink 2 liters of water a day. The result of pressotherapy, cavitation and anti-cellulite massage, plus proper nutrition and a treadmill - minus 4 kg in 3 weeks and minus 5 cm in the hips.

Literally after a couple of procedures in the “abdominal and side area” I felt unwell, this happened the next day, so I didn’t realize to connect these circumstances. My heart began to ache. During the next procedure in this zone, I felt bad again... My heart lost its rhythm, I thought it was going to explode... I started to choke, only one thought flashed through my head - it’s all over for you... It turned out okay, thank God... Naturally, there was no question of continuing the course.

My impressions: cavitation, of course, gives some results, but much greater ones can be achieved with the help of long-term diets with a normal diet, or proper nutrition and sports.

Harmful? No. But it's not harmless either. The procedure has a million contraindications. It is necessary to soberly assess the state of the body. Everything related to the removal of substances from the body will work in a freelance mode.

Effective? Definitely. There can't be no effect.

Expensive? Yes. If you choose a good device and a conscientious craftsman, it will be expensive. But the closest manipulation in meaning is liposuction, it is clearly more expensive, and its safety is more questionable. But when it comes to losing weight, there is a very good and inexpensive method: don’t eat. Not eating is much cheaper than eating, and even in large quantities.

In other words, I am a supporter of this method.

When I signed up for the procedure, I was warned that I needed to drink at least 1.5-2 liters of water per day (not liquid, but pure water)... After the procedure, do not eat for 2 hours and drink at least 2-3 liters of water during the day Necessarily. The effect and the presence of undesirable consequences (nausea, headache) depend on this. After cavitation, I had a lymphatic drainage procedure.

Now about the effect... Out of 4 sessions, I have only done 2 so far, because no more than 1 time in 7-10 days is possible.

Sizes up to... waist 81... sides 91... butt 99... hip 58

Measurements after (about 2 days) waist 77!... sides 90... butt 99 (we didn’t work it out)... hip 57 (1 cm for each leg, this is noticeable).

I am not going to stop and will continue, especially since there is an effect... I note that I did not have any unpleasant sensations during the procedure (pain, burning, anything like that)... I kept the water regime... This is important.


On average, ultrasound cavitation of the abdomen in Moscow costs 3,450 rubles per session. Depending on the size of the treated area, the price can vary from 1990 to 12,000 rubles. Also, when calculating the cost, the qualifications of the specialist, the status of the clinic and the level of equipment used are taken into account.
