At Fresh Laser Spa, we use Ultrasound Cavitation for Body Sculpting
Cavitation refers to the scientific phenomenon that occurs in the fat cells. To break it down, sound = vibration. The ultrasound handpiece emits a specific frequency of vibration (High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound) into the fat layer, that causes immense pressure to build up inside the fat cells. Because our fat cells are designed to expand and contract very slowly as we put on weight or lose weight, they cannot withstand the intense pressure and break apart, releasing the contents. In this instance, the individual fat cell walls are destroyed, and can no longer contain fat. Treatments are normally limited to 10 minutes per segment, with a maximum of 4 segments treated per session. A 4-7 day gap is generally enforced to ensure adequate elimination of released fats, membrane, and toxins that may have been contained inside the fat cells.
