Ultrasound Fat Reduction

Ultrasound fat reduction, also known as ultrasound lipolysis or ultrasonic cavitation, is a noninvasive procedure designed to address love handles, back fat, and other stubborn problem areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. It works by breaking apart fat cells located in these problem areas so they empty their contents more readily – then having these liquidized fats removed via lymphatic drainage system for removal from your body naturally.

Ultrasound fat reduction is safe for almost anyone; ultrasound waves simply disrupt the membranes of fat cells to cause them to release their contents into lymphatic system where they are processed by body. Results can be dramatic after just one session but for maximum efficacy it’s recommended to attend regular follow up appointments for continued treatment.

Ultrasonic fat reduction may also help to minimize cellulite’s appearance if you have mild to moderate cellulite and have recently lost weight. Combine it with other treatments, like Endermologie(r), radiofrequency or sclerotherapy to achieve your desired results.

Studies have demonstrated the efficacy of ultrasound for reducing subcutaneous fat tissue thickness. Researchers in one such study observed a significant reduction in subcutaneous fat after applying 1 MHz and an intensity of 3 W/cm2 ultrasound treatment to rats’ outer thigh region; plasma lipid levels also rose, suggesting it can induce lipocavitation through ultrasound technology.

Ultrasound waves emitting from a handheld device penetrate your skin and break down fat cells in targeted areas without harming surrounding tissues; then fat cells become liquidized, ready for removal by your natural lymphatic system.

CoolSculpting, which uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells, may be another effective treatment, although it should not be seen as a permanent solution – you will still need to exercise and eat right if weight loss is an issue for you.

Both CoolSculpting and Ultrasound fat reduction procedures are FDA approved, making them safe to be done at medical spas and wellness centers. Ultrasound fat reduction is less invasive than CoolSculpting, without any side effects whatsoever; though you may feel temporarily puffy after treatment as your body breaks down fat cells to remove them; results should appear within several weeks of having undergone the procedure.
