Why Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Destroy Fat Cells


Over my decade in the aesthetics industry, I’ve seen the rise of various body contouring technologies. Ultrasonic cavitation stands out as a favourite among our clients at Wellaholic. This non-invasive treatment uses ultrasound waves to break down fat cells, which are then eliminated by the body.

While it sounds straightforward, there’s a lot beneath the surface that many don’t know. I have unique insights into the procedure from working at Laser Clinics Australia and now leading Wellaholic in Singapore. From the science behind it to the unexpected benefits and considerations, I’m excited to share what I’ve learned.

I’ll provide more information about ultrasonic cavitation in the next article. You’ll understand what to expect and how it can help with your body goals.

In Singapore, about 30% of Singaporeans are overweight and 10% are obese, according to the data from Healthhub

Yes, 30% of Singaporeans are Overweight!!

As an aesthetic professional with over a decade of experience, I’ve seen first-hand the struggles many of my clients face when it comes to managing their weight and achieving their ideal body shape.

Obesity rates are on the rise in Singapore, with over 30% of adults now considered overweight. According to Healthhub (, about 30% of Singaporeans are overweight and 10% are obese. Globally, the numbers are even higher: about 39% of adults are overweight and 13% are obese as of 2019.

Small Changes, Big Difference: The Power of Consistency

At Wellaholic, we take a holistic approach to weight management. It’s not just about the number on the scale, but helping clients make sustainable lifestyle changes. We offer help with nutrition and diet, as well as personalized fitness plans. Small changes ppractisedconsistently can make a big difference over time.

From Fat Freezing to Radiofrequency: Exploring Body Contouring Options

For those stubborn fat pockets that don’t respond to diet and exercise, body contouring treatments can help. Non-invasive options like cryolipolysis (fat freezing) and Radiofrequency are popular as they require no downtime. However, it’s important to have realistic expectations – these are not weight loss solutions, but best used for body sculpting on those already close to their ideal weight. A series of treatments is usually needed for optimal results.

What is Ultrasound Cavitation?

As an aesthetic professional with over a decade of experience, I’ve seen the growing popularity of ultrasonic cavitation for body contouring. This non-invasive treatment uses low-frequency sound waves to break down fat cells, which the body then eliminates through its natural waste processes. It’s an attractive option for those looking to target stubborn fat pockets without surgery or downtime.

The Science of Ultrasonic Cavitation: How It Works

Ultrasonic cavitation can treat various areas like the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and arms. During the procedure, an ultrasound device is moved over the skin, emitting sound waves that penetrate the fat layer. This process causes the fat cells to vibrate and eventually rupture. Over the next few days, the body flushes out the liquefied fat. While you may see some improvement after one session, a series of treatments is usually recommended for optimal sculpting.

Realistic Expectations for Ultrasonic Cavitation

As with any aesthetic procedure, it’s important to have realistic expectations. Ultrasonic cavitation is not a weight loss solution, but best for reducing small areas of fat resistant to diet and exercise. It works well for people who are near their ideal weight. Side effects are minimal, mainly limited to temporary redness, mild bruising or skin sensitivity.

Ultrasonic cavitation works best on parts with localized fat. Such areas include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, hips, and upper arms

Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?

Ultrasound cavitation is a noninvasive way of reducing fat on your body. It uses sound waves to break down fat cells in specific areas. It is different from liposuction, which removes fat cells surgically.

How long does it take to see results from ultrasound cavitation?

Ultrasound cavitation does not give instant results. It takes time for your body to process and eliminate the fat cells that have been disrupted by the sound waves. You may see some improvement after one session, but you will likely need multiple sessions to achieve your desired outcome. The full effect of the treatment may take weeks or months to appear.

How do individual factors affect ultrasound cavitation results?

Ultrasound cavitation results may vary depending on your personal characteristics and lifestyle. Factors such as your health history, body type, diet, exercise, and skin elasticity can influence how well the treatment works and how long it lasts. You may need more or fewer sessions than others to reach your goals. You may also need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to preserve your results.

Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation, a cutting-edge procedure, is gaining traction in the field of non-invasive fat reduction. This innovative method employs low-frequency sound waves to disrupt fat cells, transforming them into a liquid state, while leaving the surrounding tissues unscathed.

The Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation Process

Using low-frequency sound waves, the cavitation process targets fat cells under the skin, causing them to rupture and release their contents. The body then naturally eliminates this fat through the lymphatic system. I love that there’s no surgery, anaesthesia or downtime involved. My clients can pop in for a quick 20-60 minute session and then get right back to their day.

While cavitation isn’t a magic bullet for major weight loss, it’s excellent for reducing fat in problem areas like the stomach, thighs and arms. Most of my clients see measurable results after the very first session

A series of treatments can lead to some impressive body contouring, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. So if you’re at or near your ideal weight but struggling with lingering fat deposits, come see me to find out if cavitation could be right for you!

While ultrasonic cavitation can be effective in reducing the appearance of fat, it is important to note that a balanced diet is the only way to ensure lasting results.

1. Make Sure You Are Ideal for Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation

While generally safe, it’s important to be a good candidate for ultrasonic cavitation to get optimal results. Ideal patients are in overall good health, non-smokers, and already close to their target weight. This treatment works best for reducing small pockets of fat, not major weight loss. It’s also crucial to commit to multiple sessions and maintain a healthy lifestyle, as results develop gradually over weeks.

As with any procedure, there are some risks to consider, such as temporary bruising, redness, and skin sensitivity. Rare but potential complications include uneven fat removal or skin damage if the device is used improperly. Always work with an experienced provider who can evaluate your suitability for the treatment. With realistic expectations and proper care, ultrasonic cavitation can be an excellent option to refine your figure without surgery or downtime.

The more water you consume, the easier it becomes for your body to remove fatty acids that your fat cells turn into.

2. You Have to Commit to the Process of Ultrasonic Cavitation

Ultrasonic cavitation can be an effective treatment for reducing stubborn fat deposits, but it requires commitment and consistency to see optimal results. As an aesthetic director with over a decade of experience, I’ve seen how important it is for clients to fully dedicate themselves to the process.

The ultrasound energy from cavitation breaks down fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. However, this doesn’t happen overnight. It typically takes several weeks and multiple treatment sessions to notice significant changes. Sticking to a regular treatment schedule, as recommended by your provider, is key.

Just as important is maintaining a healthy lifestyle in between and after your cavitation treatments. This means eating a balanced diet, staying well-hydrated, and exercising regularly. These habits help your body more efficiently flush out the released fat and keep the weight off long-term. Cavitation is not a magic solution – it works best when combined with an overall dedication to wellness. So if you’re considering this treatment, be prepared to put in the effort beyond just showing up for your appointments. The results are worth it!

At Wellaholic, we take every precaution to ensure your safety and minimize any potential risks. Our skilled therapists are trained in performing lipocavitation with precision and care. During your consultation, we will assess your individual circumstances, discuss any concerns you may have, and provide personalized recommendations.

3. Prepare for the Cost of Ultrasonic Cavitation

Understanding the Costs: Factors Influencing Ultrasonic Cavitation Pricing

When considering ultrasonic cavitation as a body contouring option, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of the associated costs. Several factors can influence the pricing of ultrasonic cavitation treatments. Let’s explore them in more detail.

Variable Factors Affecting Pricing

  1. Location: The cost of ultrasonic cavitation can vary based on the geographical location of the treatment facility.
  2. Targeted Area: The specific area of the body being treated can impact the overall cost. Larger areas may require more time and resources, resulting in a higher price.
  3. Number of Sessions: The number of sessions needed to achieve optimal results can influence the overall cost. Depending on individual goals and body composition, multiple sessions may be recommended.

4. Know What to Expect with Ultrasonic Cavitation

Ultrasound fat cavitation empties out your fat cells, rather than destroying them like liposuction does.

In some ways, that’s a good thing. With liposuction, your body will continue to make fat. Since it can’t put new fat deposits in cells that have been destroyed, you may end up with fat deposits in new areas of your body. The fat will almost always come back, but with fat cavitation, at least it won’t appear where you least expect it.

  • Ultrasonic Cavi 360 uses ultrasound cavitation technology to break down fat deposits in body.
  • Patients can see immediate result and will continue to see results in reduction of fat over a few weeks.
  • Ultrasonic Cavi 360 is a much safer alternative to other surgical options such as liposuction.
  • This fat cavitation treatment is ideal for targeting small areas of fat for better body contouring and sculpting.

To make your results last longer, you’ll need a great diet and plenty of regular exercise. If your calorie intake rises above your body’s chances to burn off fat, you’ll see the fat come back.

5. Check if You are Suitable for Ultrasonic Cavitation

White fat is primarily composed of simple, single-chambered fat cells, contributing to 6-25% of body weight in adult men and 14-35% in adult women.

Smoking and its Impact on Treatment

To maximize the effectiveness of your treatment, it is highly recommended to either be a casual smoker or refrain from smoking altogether. Smoking can have negative effects on your body, including impairing blood circulation and hindering the body’s natural healing process. By avoiding smoking, you create a healthier environment for your body to respond well to the treatment.

Weight Considerations for Optimal Results

Being within 8kg of your target or optimal weight is ideal before undergoing the treatment. This weight range ensures that the treatment can be more targeted and tailored to your specific needs. When you are closer to your target weight, it allows for better body contouring outcomes and enhances the effectiveness of the treatment.

Excess Fat and the Need for Multiple Treatments

If you have more than mild excess fat in the areas to be treated, it’s important to note that you may see less noticeable improvements after a single treatment. In such cases, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results. Each session builds upon the previous one, gradually reducing the excess fat and improving the overall appearance. It’s essential to have realistic expectations and understand that consistent treatment sessions are key to achieving great results.
