What is Ultrasound Cavitation?

Ultrasound Cavitation makes use of a technology that minimises the look of cellulite on your thighs, upper arms, buttocks and abs by destroying body fat cells which also reduces the circumference of your body. Ultrasound wavelength is passed through the target areas to cause vibration in the fat cell membranes through rapid expansion followed by quick contraction. This results in the formation of a small air bubble inside that fat cell which bursts through the walls of the cell and releases the trapped triglycerides into the interstitial fluid.

This procedure affects only the weak fat cells or adipose, while the surrounding stronger tissues remain intact. The dispersed fat is eliminated through the liver. You have to follow your physician’s instructions very closely to effectively eliminate or use up the dispersed fat. Otherwise your body will start restoring this rejected fat.

Usually a lymphatic drainage procedure follows an ultrasound Cavitation treatment to effectively facilitate the drainage and elimination of fat cell liquids from your system. The emulsified fat tissue liquid is sucked out/vacuumed through the urinary and lymphatic systems.

Fat loss Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment is not recommended for lactating or pregnant women or those who are suffering from cancer, acute illnesses, epilepsy, pace makers, bleeding tendencies or liver malfunctions. Otherwise, this non surgical, non invasive procedure is absolutely safe and doesn’t even require anaesthesia as it is painless.


Application of the ultrasound Cavitation treatment ensures destruction of fat cells. But to prevent them from rebuilding inside your body, you need to take up exercise programmes and healthy eating patterns. You should not drink alcohol for 4 days after treatment. Follow up treatments may be required every three to six months to maintain fat loss.


Ultrasound Cavitation treatment owes its Australian roots to Brisbane, Queensland, where it was well received. Nowadays, this treatment has become popular with Aussies all over the country, in all the states and cities in Down Under. You should receive this treatment in a hospital or doctor’s office or in specialised ultrasonic medical clinics or spas from a qualified and experienced physician or GBG trained therapist.
