Ultra Sound Cavitation & Lymphatic Drainage
Ultrasound Cavitation Treatments
The Harrow Clinic offers Ultrasound Cavitation is a technique used for fat reduction. It’s a very smart way of reducing fat from localised areas such arms, abdomen, love handles, legs and bum. It’s a nonsurgical procedure without anaesthesia, pain free and comfortable, without any cuts or scars. It’s a safe treatment that won’t affect your vascular system or lymphatic system.
A fully trained therapist will apply a gel and the ultrasound hand piece into your skin. Specific parameters of ultrasound cavitation are selected by your therapist to ensure that only the targeted area is being treated. The ultrasound cavitation hand piece once in contact with your skin delivers ultrasonic low level waves that travel at high speed cycles compressing and expanding forming pressure effects around the liquid molecules and fat cells. This continuous process will result on micro bubbles that increase in size and run into each other and burst. This process doesn’t affect skin tissue. The ultrasound waves will disrupt fat cells membranes. The adipocytes (fat cells) contain triglycerides that are released into interstitial fluid and are processed by your metabolism pathways. In order to understand better, the cell membranes of the adipocytes are compromised and triglycerides are released in our body. This will begin the process of breaking them down.
