Cavitation is a procedure, which uses ultrasound waves of low frequency (30-40kHz). The waves move in the target tissues with high velocity. In these frequencies the targeted fat tissue experiences changes without affecting the blood vessels, which because of the different composition and density of their tissue react differently to the ultrasound waves.
The back-and-forth motion causes the creation of tiny vacuum bubbles (cavities) in the interstitial fluid of the targeted area. These bubbles oscillate and expand with great speed, because of the sound field, applying pressure on the walls of the fat cells until they burst. The rupture of the bubbles creates a shock wave which causes [...]
