Tired of that cellulite? Want to be summer ready?

We do have some dataTrusted Sources from studies that support ultrasonic cavitation as a less invasive alternative to surgical liposuction.

What is ultrasonic cavitation treatment? Ultrasonic cavitation, also called ultrasonic lipolysis, is a body contouring treatment that is used to remove fat deposits under your skin. It can also be referred to by brand names, such as Lipoxin or Ultra Shape. This procedure is a safer alternative to surgical options, like liposuction. The treatment uses ultrasonic radio waves to break apart fat cells, which are then absorbed into your body by your lymphatic system. Ultrasonic cavitation is different from other similar treatments, like ultrasound liposuction, because it doesn’t require any incisions. This means recovery is easier. It also means that results might be less noticeable. The ideal candidate for ultrasonic cavitation:

  • is in good overall health.

  • doesn’t smoke.

  • has realistic expectations.

  • is already within 15 pounds of their goal weight.

Ultrasonic cavitation is meant to target small areas of fat and help contour your body. It isn’t a treatment for people who are trying to lose a lot of weight. The verdict is still out on how well ultrasound cavitation works. There’s promising evidence to suggest that this is an effective body contouring treatment. If you’re considering this treatment for yourself, keep reading to find out everything you need to know about the costs, side effects, procedure, recovery time, and more.

How much does ultrasonic cavitation cost? Ultrasonic cavitation is considered an elective cosmetic procedure. That means that you’ll have to pay for the treatment, as well as any associated costs, completely out of pocket. Insurance doesn’t typically cover body contouring, which includes ultrasound cavitation. The average cost can vary widely and depends on:

  • which machine is used for the treatment?

  • the experience level of your provider

  • how many treatments do you need.

The average cost of nonsurgical fat removal treatment is $1,300. There aren’t a lot of additional costs for this treatment besides your provider’s fee. No anesthesia is typically necessary. Ultrasonic cavitation appeals to many people partly because the recovery time is minimal. This treatment is advertised as a “lunch break procedure,” meaning that your appointment can usually be completed in less than an hour. You can drive immediately afterward, and you can even return directly to work after having it done.
