What is ultrasonic cavitation?

Up until recently, liposuction was considered the most popular way for body contouring. However, this invasive procedure is associated with a long recovery, adverse events, and complications, which created a demand for non-invasive pain-free methods of fat reduction and body sculpturing. In recent research, doctors compared invasive (liposuction), semi-invasive (lipolysis), and non-invasive (cryo lipolysis, radiofrequency, and ultrasonic cavitation) methods for fat reduction and determined, that non-invasive methods appear to have better efficacy in the body circumference measurements [1].

The latest and most promising (according to research [2]) non-invasive technology is Ultrasound Lipolysis, also called Ultrasonic Cavitation. This method uses ultrasound to liquefy fat cells. High-intensity focused ultrasound waves make a vibration, creating air bubbles that expand and burst, forcing adipose (fat cells) membranes to burst, releasing free fatty acids and glycerol (see figure 1). Water-soluble glycerol then is used to generate energy in the body, whereas fatty acids get absorbed by the liver like any other fatty acids you get with your food. 

During cavitation only adipose (fat) tissue is affected, because it has a much weaker membrane, leaving other tissues completely unaffected.

Cavitation slimming machines: who can use them and how to choose

So how this technology is applied in practical terms? By Ultrasonic Cavitation Machines aka Lipo Cavitation Machines. 

Cavitation slimming machines: who can use them and how to choose

There are many types and forms of these machines from small hand-held wands to complex machines with many different probes and settings. However simple or complicated, the principle is the same. All machines have wands with metalheads transmitting high-frequency sound waves. To perform the treatment you need to press the wand to your skin lightly on the wanted area and move the wand imitating massage movements.

⚕ Important to know before:

  • It is best to avoid using Ultrasonic Cavitation during pregnancy and lactation.
  • Avoid using Cavitation machines if you have circulatory or liver conditions.
  • Do not use it if you have a pacemaker.
  • Consult with a doctor if you have diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or skin sensitivity to light or heat

When choosing an Ultrasonic Slimming machine you need to consider several things. 

Type

You can have a single wand ultrasonic cavitation machine, a machine with additional RF (radiofrequency) probes, vacuum RF, EMS (electro-magnetic stimulation), or laser-lipo features. 

Ultrasonic cavitation is a great way to sculpt your body to the desired form, however, it is not a weight-loss procedure. So to see consistent results you need to follow a balanced diet, exercise routine, perform lymph drainage massage, and drink a lot of water. If you are naturally good at following all the rules, you will see great results using a simple single-wand cavitation machine.

If you know you might struggle with maintaining your routine, additional features in your beauty machine will greatly help flush liquefied fat from your body. 

RF (radiofrequency) feature will assist your lymph system, so it is easier for your body to get rid of destroyed fat cells. EMS (electro-magnetic stimulation) stimulates your muscles in a particular area that you can use to increase your exercising time. And laser-lipo will target fat cells with laser precision.

You can read more on laser-lipo machines in our other article.

The infrared feature is a great addition to any beauty device (in ultrasonic cavitation machines it is usually paired with RF), the light is well-known for its healing powers. You can read more on Infrared light therapy in our article.

Frequency range

Most lipo cavitation machines operate on sound waves frequencies 20 – 40 kHz. The way the method works the lower the frequency, the deeper it penetrates (see figure 2). So adjusting the frequency during the procedures will help to target different layers of fat deposits. It is best to avoid machines with a frequency capacity of 60Hz because the waves generated at this frequency range are too weak to reach fat deposits.

Additional functions

Infrared light is a great feature to have in your cavitation machine. Infrared promotes the production of collagen, helps reduce inflammation, and improves skin appearance. 

Most body sculpting machines are also equipped with RF (radiofrequency) probes that help your lymphatic system flush destroyed fat deposits faster. 

Another additional feature can be laser lipo pads (these pads also target fat cells only with laser powers), a vacuum wand (that can help bring fat deposits closer to the surface), EMS electrodes (to stimulate your muscles).

💡 Tips:

  • Most cavitation machines require the use of gel or cream for lubrication and there are many suggestions to use fat burning creams or lotions. However, it is best to use water-based ultrasound gel which performs as a conductor and will increase the force of cavitation.
  • When using a machine with several features always start with lipolysis (cavitation and laser lipo) then vacuum, and RF to finish. This way you destroy the fat cells first, and then help your body to flush them from your system faster.

All cavitation machines produce high shrieking noise during the procedure and you will hear ringing in your ears that can last up to 24 hours.

Best home cavitation machines for slimming and body contouring

One of the best cavitation machines in 2021, this lipo cavitation body slimming machine has two modes of operation — Ultrasonic cavitation to destroy fat cells and RF (Radio Frequency) with Infrared light to help the lymphatic system drain fatty acids faster and tighten the skin.

Very popular among professionals this machine has Ultrasonic cavitation, vacuum RF (radiofrequency), multipolar RFs, and laser lipo features. It needs a little more practice to get used to it but will give great results (and LED touchscreen helps you to navigate easily).

To start the treatment, use laser-lipo handles and cavitation first. The machine operates on 20 – 40 kHz frequencies, so it is best to start with moderate intensity (it will have deep penetrative force) and build it up every other session. Use it for 30 minutes maximum total (if you are using the machine on several areas in one treatment, you should divide the time between all areas).

After cavitation, you can use RF (radiofrequency). All RF probes (except vacuum) come with Infrared light so it helps not only to drain fat faster but also tightens and improves your skin, promoting collagen production. HUANSHI Professional Body Slimming Machine has three RF probes with different frequencies, so you can use this feature on the body, neck, and face.

With this machine, you can have complete professional whole body and face treatments at your home, however, you need to follow the instructions carefully, maintain the order and the length of all procedures.

Just 20 minutes per session 2 times a week is enough to see steady positive results. 

Enshey body slimming machine is powerful enough for professional salons and compact enough for at-home use which makes this ultrasonic cavitation machine a truly universal device.

Scientific trials of ultrasound cavitation for body sculpting

The clinical trials of ultrasonic cavitation for fat loss showed that treatment provides significant satisfying results in a circumferential reduction without any serious adverse effects (see figure 3). Patients had a reduction in fat tissue by 2 cm or more across the abdomen, flanks, hips, and thighs. The results were consistent with each device used and none are associated with any adverse effects. In the review from 2015, the data was gathered from 31 studies (27 clinical studies and 4 chart reviews) with a total of 2937 patients. 843 patients were treated with HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound aka Ultrasonic Cavitation). All the studies varied in the treatment regimen, treated areas, and follow-up times, however, a vast majority of patients experienced positive results without any noticeable side effects [5].

In a study on 30 healthy patients (both males and females), the efficacy and safety of HIFU were satisfactorily confirmed. The patients underwent 3 treatments, 1 per month (only ultrasonic cavitation was performed), and were followed up 1-month post last treatment. The subjects were treated on the abdomen, thighs, flanks, inner knees, and chest (males only). In the outcome, all patients showed a significant reduction (2.28+/-0.80 cm)  in thickness of the fat layer within the treated area, and circumference reduction was 4.95+/-1.99 cm. However, the patients showed no change in their weight during the treatment and follow-up period. No adverse effects were observed either (figure 4, 5) [8].

In fact, Ultrasonic Cavitation is the only body sculpting treatment that can produce significant results in a single treatment. Early clinical data on this method support its efficacy and safety for body sculpting. 

Additionally, only radiofrequency, low-level laser therapy and cryo lipolysis have been approved for use in the United States [6]. 

In another review, that focused on technology assessment of non-invasive methods for weight-loss and body shaping, 23 studies on lipolysis were examined. Ultrasonic with Radiofrequency method showed an overall 2.7 cm reduction in the circumference of the abdomen area, and the pooled estimate reduction in fat layer thickness was 78%. It also showed that non-invasive methods appear to have better outcomes, specifically in the circumference measurements of the body shape. They are also cost less compared to invasive intervention (liposuction) [7].

How to use fat cavitation machines for the best results

Cavitation machines are great devices to help reduce the fat appearance and sculpt your body, however, you will not see the results if you do not follow certain rules:

  1. First of all, you need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Cavitation does not burn the fat, it simply breaks it apart. After that, your lymphatic system needs to flush it out.
  2. Drink plenty of water to help flush away broken fat cells. It is recommended to drink half a gallon (2 liters) of water before the treatment, and 4 cups (1 liter) after. 
  3. Massage the area after the session to help the lymphatic system move faster.
  4. Exercise (and it is best to do it right after the treatment). You can choose any type of exercise from cardio to yoga or simply stretching, but keep your body moving for at least 30 minutes a day.
  5. Avoid greasy, heavy food, alcohol, and sugar for 24 hours before the procedure.
  6. Do not eat 2 hours before and 1 hour after the treatment.
  7. Focus on one (two for bilateral parts) area per session. 
  8. Use your ultrasonic cavitation device every two-three days switching the area you treat. You can have 3 sessions for up to 30 minutes each per week.

Before and aftercare

Ultrasonic fat cavitation is a safe and painless procedure that requires minimum effort. To start the session apply some cream or gel on the area you are about to treat, turn on your device, select your settings and you are good to go. 

After the session simply wipe out the head of the cavitation machine with a dump cloth to remove remnants of the product you used and put it away till the next use. 

Summary

Body sculpting non-invasive procedures are becoming increasingly popular among men and women alike. Ultrasonic cavitation for far reduction is a safe and painless treatment for both men and women that helps to reduce circumference measurements and improve skin appearance. The ultrasonic cavitation machine will be a great addition to your body care routine as it not only helps to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat but also improves skin appearance and increases metabolism. 

FAQ

🩺 What are contraindications to cavitation machines use?

It is highly recommended to avoid using cavitation devices during pregnancy and lactation periods.

The contraindications also include using a cardiac pacemaker, liver condition, diabetes, cardiovascular disease or circulatory condition, skin sensitivity to heat and light. You should consult your doctor before using Ultrasonic Cavitation machines if you have any of those conditions.

🤕 Is cavitation a painful procedure?

Ultrasonic fat cavitation is a completely pain-free procedure. The cavitation slimming machines use ultrasonic waves to break fat cells and you will not feel any discomfort during the procedure. However, every machine has recommended time duration for the procedure and you should not exceed the recommended time not to put too much stress on your liver.

🔥 Does Ultrasonic Cavitation burns fat?

No. The Ultrasonic Cavitation breaks fat cells, so the liver can digest them. That is why a balanced diet is important to ensure lasting results.

⌛ How fast can I see the results?

You will see the difference immediately after the treatment, however for steady results, allow 3 – 6 sessions.

🤔 Is Cavitation better than fat freezing?

The fat is only suitable for freeze if you can grab a good handful of it. If the deposits of fat are more widespread, the Cavitation is often a much better choice.
