Cavitation FAQ Science

Cavitation Research / Inch Loss

When choosing a non-invasive surgical procedure, we like our patients to have peace of mind, which is why we provide links to independent research journals that closely resemble the treatments we offer.

Reduction of Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue Using a Novel Vacuum-Cavitation Technology (Smiljanic Jasminka, MD)

Cavitation Research Results: “ Eight (8) female patients aged 35-64 years were involved in the study… All patients experienced a notable reduction in the fat thickness within the treatment site. The mean reduction in circumference after a single treatment was 2938+0,623 cm. The ultrasound measurement results showed the mean subcutaneous fat thickness reduction of 2,96+2,01mm… No significant changes in cholesterol, triglycerides, and liver markers was observed. Side effects were limited to slight erythema that persisted up to 1 hour after treatment.” Original Cavitation research journal

Structural Changes of Fat Tissue After Nonaspirative Ultrasonic Hydrolipoclasy (Fúlvio B Godoy)

“This makes the already swollen adipocytes become more susceptible to the action of ultrasonic waves; and, due to the phenomenon of cavitation, “explode,” releasing fat from within. These will be removed from the site via the lymphatic system.”

“The Wilcoxon test was conducted, and a difference was found between the treated side and the corresponding control side on the number of viable cells. The treated side showed a smaller number of viable cells compared to the control side both immediately after treatment and 3 days later. Also occurring 3 days after treatment was the migration of lymphoid cells and fibroblasts, which shows the local inflammatory process and conjunctive neoformation. Soon after treatment there was fluid accumulation within adipocytes.” Original Cavitation research journal

Cavitation and separated flow in a simple homogenizing valve and their influence on the break-up of fat globules in milk (L. W. Phipps)

Flow separation and cavitation effects in a simple homogenizing valve have been studied visually and recorded photographically. The degree of separation depended upon the profile of the seating inlet boundary, the pressure loading and several other interdependent factors. Cavitation did not occur independently of separation; conditions would be suitable for microscale cavitation to occur within the separated flow itself… Original Cavitation research journal
