Lipo cavitation treatment is a non-surgical technique that helps reduce fat from specific body parts, such as arms, trunk, abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs. The treatment consists of the generation of vacuum microbubbles utilizing ultrasound. When they implode, they break the adipocytes’ membranes (fat cells) and are released naturally in the body without affecting the surrounding tissues, subsequently eliminating through the urine.
This technique is entirely painless and without risks to your health.

Depending on each case, the drainage can be done manually or mechanized (pressotherapy, Endermologie). In this way, it not only drain and treat localized fat but also model the body to achieve a more proportionate silhouette, reduce cellulite, and improve the appearance of the skin so that the final result is truly spectacular.
The results are visible after 1 to 2 sessions. From the first sessions, the patient observes a significant reduction in the volume and contour of the body while the skin becomes smoother. In a few sessions, the figure remodels without pain or risk.
Typically one session is performed every 7 to 15 days. To accurately determine the frequency and number of sessions, it is necessary to previously make an anthropometric diagnosis of the body and analyze each case. This way, we design a personalized treatment plan to achieve an effective and lasting result.
