Ultrasonic Cavitation vs. Fat Freezing, Which Is Better?

Are you wanting to reduce excess body fat using the latest beauty technology, but not sure which technology is most effective?

Ultrasonic cavitation and cryolipolisis fat freezing are both very popular choices when it comes to non-surgical body slimming treatment options.  In this blog post we will reveal how they each work and whether to choose a Fat Freezing Machine or an Ultrasonic Cavitation Machine to help you achieve your specific body contouring goals.

How Ultrasonic Cavitation Works To Permanently Remove Fat

Ultrasonic Cavitation is one of the safest and most effective non-invasive options to consider if you are looking for permanent fat removal.   Fat cavitation works by using  low frequency ultrasound waves to burst fat cell membranes, destroying the fat cells.  The dead fat cells are then gradually flushed out like typical waste via the lymphatic and interstitial systems.

How Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing Works To Permanently Remove Fat

Cryolipolysis fat freezing, on the other hand, destroys fat cells using cold temperatures. The theory that underpins cryolipolysis is that fat cells are more vulnerable to damage caused by the cold than other cells.   When fat cells become damaged due to thermal shock, the body initiates an inflammatory response, which then results in fat cell death, and the natural processing and elimination of the fat cells.

Ultrasonic Cavitation and Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing Both Work Via Apoptosis

We just learned that, while ultrasonic cavitation and fat freezing use completely different methods to destroy fat cells, they are similar in that they both permanently reduce the number of fat cells in the body.  They both do this via a process known as apoptosis.

Apoptosis is a fancy word for programmed cell death.   During the process of apoptosis, fat cells release ‘find me’ and ‘eat me’ signals, which means they can be easily found roaming phagocytes. These phagocytes then pick up the dying fat cells and break them down into smaller pieces that can easily be flushed out of the body via the metabolic system. This process of flushing the dead fat cells out of the system is a gradual one, and this is why it takes 2-3 weeks from your first session to see visible body slimming results.

Why You Should Not Combine Ultrasonic Cavitation and Fat Freezing Treatments

Modern spas and clinics serve their clients best by offering luxurious combo packages featuring the most effective beauty treatments.   For example, spas offer micro-needling and hydra facial combinations, or ems sculpting and lipo laser combinations, etc.  Such combo packages result in enhanced treatment results and happier clientele.

It would seem to follow then, that offering a combination of these two popular fat reduction methods in the same treatment course might make sense. However, this is not the case! The reason is that both Ultrasonic Cavitation and Fat Freezing are so effective, that either one will make the other one redundant!

Indeed, because both treatments rely on the process of cell death, or apoptosis, following a typical treatment session there will always be a lot of dying and dead fat cells lying around.  For example, after an hour of cool sculpting on the abdominal area, there will be a lot of dead cells in the coming days in weeks in the abdomen as a result of this fat-freezing treatment. Then if you apply the ultrasonic cavitation treatment to the same area, treatment is clearly redundant.

Which Treatment is Better For Body Fat Reduction?

While there is no point in combining ultrasonic cavitation and fat freezing treatments on the same areas of the body within the same 2-3 week time frame, there are specific advantages for choosing one over the other, depending on your body contouring goals.

Targeted Areas or Whole Body Treatments?

If you are looking to target and remove large fat bulges on a specific area of the body, then choosing cryotherapy treatment is most advisable. This is because a professional fat freezing machine can more proficiently target and surround the large fat protrusions on the body.

However, if you are looking for fat reduction all over the body, or all over a general area of the body, then ultrasonic cavitation is the best choice.

Number Of Treatments 

Additionally, if you are looking for dramatic results in the fewest number of sessions,  then fat freezing is usually the best choice. This is because, with the best quality professional cryotherapy machines, you will only need 1 to 4 single-hour treatments to achieve significant visible results.

In contrast, ultrasonic cavitation treatments need to be done at least 1-2 times per week for several weeks to begin seeing substantial visible results.
