short description that is usually easier to understand (the long description is also on this page below)
Ultrasound cavitation is a non surgical method of destroying the fat that is stored in the fat cells. This treatment is quickly growing in popularity throughout the US. Basically the ultrasonic Cavitation blasts the fat out of your fat cells- transfering thru the fat cell membrane and being removed from the body thru the liver and lymph sysytem.
Radio Frequency can help tighten loose skin.
Long (Technical) Description:
What is Ultrasound?
A MHz or Megahertz is 1,000,000 hertz and a rating of 40 KHz to 5 MHz is used in an ultrasonic treatment. This type of sound wave can destroy fat cells without causing damage to any other tissues or organs. Clients can often see results the first two hours after using Ultrasonic Cavitation and RF Therapy. Ultrasonic therapy forces a powerful sound wave to the fat cell membranes. The fat cell membrane succumbs to the pressure, is reduced to liquid, and is expelled through the body’s normal metabolic method.
Ultrasonic Cavitation destroys fat cells at such a rate and in such quantity that fat storage is significantly reduced or eliminated. Clients can see the results with the increase in their body’s fat cell metabolism.
Ultrasonic Cavitation therapy makes it possible to apply concentrated levels of ultrasonic energy to specific treatment areas. This type of therapy targets and destroys subcutaneous fat cells in the fat cell membranes through a series of microscopic implosions. Once the fat cell membrane (adipose tissue) is destroyed, the fat is discharged between the cells where they are turned into protein and then changed to free fatty acids and glycerol. Free fatty acids are moved to the liver where they decay and are removed from the body while water-soluble glycerol is transported to the circulatory system and used as energy.
Tri-polar Radio Frequency or Tripolar RF metabolizes large fat granules that were exploded by the first cavitation treatment. Heat forces collagen fibers to contract in the subcutaneous and dermis layers of the skin, which immediately tightens. New collagen is produced as fibroblast metabolism is increased, creating a long term result of smoother and firmer skin. Since RF energy affects the deeper dermal layers, a decrease in deep wrinkles and thicker and firmer skin will result. RF promotes new collagen protein which causes the original collagen protein to strengthen the skin.
Lipolysis (mono-polar Radio Frequency combined with cavitation), causes the remaining adipose tissue (fat cell membrane) to explode and forces the removal of triglycerides as well as a tightening of the skin. The sub-dermis, where cellulite is found, is heated by the ultra-power mono-polar radio frequency waves, which cause a tightening and slimming appearance on cellulite tissues.
Specifically, these currents:
1. Instantly shorten original collagen fibers, resulting in the appearance of lifted and tightened skin
2.New collagen and elastin fibers are produced, increasing the tightening of the skin
3.Fragile cells called adipocytes are stimulated to release fat into the bloodstream, removing them
