Cavitation

Cavitation

Cavitation is a revolutionary technology that thanks to low-frequency ultrasonic waves produces microscopic microbubbles, which break the membranes of adipocytes, without damaging the adjacent structures, and respecting the integrity of the lymphatic and blood system. It is recommended in very specific areas. It is a neither invasive, nor painful treatment, being scientifically tested.

Areas to be treated: hips, inner knee area, flanks and abdomen.

The treatment may be performed by using two methods:

  • by means of fixed devices; using plates that emit ultrasonic waves in the areas to be treated with variable intensity
  • by using mobile manipulation for inaccessible areas.

The result can be further optimized by applying ultrasonic hydrolipoclasy that consists in infiltrating a hypotonic solution prepared by the medical practitioner. It is a good solution for localized fat and compact cellulite. It has no risks as long as it is made by expert hands and under aseptic conditions. In this case, we recommend between 6 and 8 sessions every 15 days. The selection criteria for the application of one technique or another are prescribed by the medical practitioner. The cavitation technique includes a 30-minute lymphatic drainage performed with pressotherapy or vibrational therapy. The duration of the complete treatment in consultation is one hour and a half.
