Know All the Dangers of Lipocavitation

Lipocavitation is an aesthetic treatment indicated to eliminate localized fat and cellulite, especially in the regions of the belly, thighs, flanks and back, which does not hurt and helps to shape and define the body. Lipocavitation is done using an ultrasound device, which helps to destroy accumulated fat locally. This treatment is safe and has no health risks, does not cause burns, nor does it increase cholesterol, but it must be performed with a trained professional so that the procedure has the expected effect.

As with any cosmetic procedure, there is always a risk of not working or not getting the expected results, and this can happen when the person does not follow all the necessary guidelines during their treatment period, which includes drinking plenty of water and green tea, eat well and it is essential to have lymphatic drainage and moderate or high intensity exercise within 48 hours after each lipocavitation session.

But for this treatment to be risk-free, it is necessary to follow its contraindications

Although Lipocavitation is a procedure with few risks, it is contraindicated in some specific cases, such as:
