Risks of Cavitation
Cavitation machines are a painless, non-invasive, very safe and effective way to lose fat in localized areas of the body and fight cellulite with evident results with few treatments, but there are some things that can rarely happen and that can represent risks of cavitation.
Read on to learn what side effects can occur with this treatment and how you can avoid them.
In our opinion, among the precautions you should take when receiving an aesthetic treatment, another thing to take into account is the quality of the cavitation equipment used and the experience and knowledge of the professional who will perform the treatment.
Remember that we are thinking about your wellbeing; before undergoing an aesthetic treatment, the best thing you can do is to go to your family doctor for an examination and to recommend the treatment you want to undergo or not. Now, let’s go ahead.
Reddening of the skin:
The head of the cavitating machine produces heat by means of the ultrasound emitted. In principle, the risks are minimal but for very sensitive skin or by misuse of the equipment, it could cause some erythema or reddening of the skin. Do not worry, it is a discomfort that lasts a few hours and eventually disappears without sequelae.
Bruising or swelling:
Sometimes, bruises or small swellings may appear on the skin that will usually disappear quickly.
They are always due to poor quality or poorly maintained equipment or to a bad use of the cavitator or inexperience or lack of knowledge of the professional who applies it.
Bad professionals and bad appliances:
Another possible problem related to bad professionals or poor equipment is that there may be some remaining accumulations of fat in the treated area. All this is due to poor or non-application of lymphatic drainage (in the form of manual massage or pressotherapy) essential for finished cavitation professionals. The best remedy is to perform this lymphatic drainage in an efficient and precise way.
