Cavitation technology enables concentrated ultrasound energy to be directed at localised treatment areas, disrupting the subcutaneous fat cells through thousands of microscopic implosions impacting the fat cell membranes. The fat cells do not have the structural capacity to with stand this vibration and the cell membrane quickly breaks down.
After the breakdown of adipose tissue (fat cell membrane), the liquid fat is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, this is enzymatically changed to glycerol and free fatty acids.
Water soluble glycerol travels into the circulatory system and is used to generate new energy. The insoluble free fatty acids enter the liver where they are processed like any other simple fatty acid and excreted as waste in the usual way.
