20 Questions About Ultrasonic Cavitation 1

Table of Content

1.What is a cavitation machine?

A ultrasonic slimming machine is able to break down fat cells under the skin. Using ultrasound technology, cellulite and localized fat can be reduced without surgery. It works by applying pressure to fat cells through ultrasonic vibrations. The constant high pressure breaks down fat cells into liquid and excretes them as waste through urine.

This treatment can be combined with other weight loss programs such as balanced meals to help eliminate excess fat. This method is good for removing body fat, compared to other invasive procedures. It’s important to note that if you eat a high-calorie diet, it may cause your weight to rebound.

Currently, the frequencies of cavitation are 25k, 30k, 40k, 60k, and 80k. Among them, 40k and 80k are the more common device on the market. Both 80K and 40K cavitation machines have their advantages, as shown in figure 1.

2.Do cavitation machines actually work?

Yes! Medical grade cavitation machines are very popular in the market. Ultrasonic cavitation uses radio frequency and ultrasound to form bubbles around the deposited fat of the skin. Then as the bubbles burst, the cellulite is broken down into the interstitium and lymphatic system, where it is expelled. Fatty deposits are converted to glycerol and free fatty acids, which are subsequently excreted as waste.

3.How to test cavitation machine?

After receiving the machine, you should first test whether the machine is damaged. By plugging in the power cord and turning on the switch according to the instructions, you can start the machine. To know if the cavitation handle is working properly, drop water on the cavitation probe.You will see the water is atomized if the machine works.

4.Why does cavitation make noise?

After testing, you may feel that the cavitation probe makes a sound when it works. In fact, this is the sound of ultrasound. Ultrasound passes through the epidermis at a frequency of 40kHz and acts on the fat cells in the dermis, and the high-frequency vibration causes the fat cells to rupture. Sometimes patients feel that tinnitus is due to the micro vibration of fat cells. So it is normal for us to hear noise during ultrasonic cavitation therapy. If you feel it is uncomfortable, we recommend you choose the 80K cavitation machine, because the sound of the 40K cavitation probe is louder than that of 80K.

5.How to reduce noise?

  • Please remember to take off metal parts such as jewelry
  • Konmison’s ultrasonic cavitation machine (JF738) can choose the working time and working modes. You can choose interval or continuous working mode to find the most comfortable treatment mode

Take exercise

The cavitation machine is a non-invasive and safe slimming method. No recovery time is required after the treatment. It is recommended to do at least 20 min exercises post-treatment. This is to accelerate the consumption of stored energy. It will help you to gain a better slimming effect.

Drink water

After the effective ultrasonic cavitation machine destroys the fat cells, your body needs to expel the fat cells through the lymphatic system. Drinking plenty of water helps increase the rate at which the lymphatic system drains fat cells. It is convenient for you to see the therapeutic effect you want to achieve.
