Lipolex Ultrasound Cavitation System
Ultrasound cavitation is a relatively recent body-contouring treatment now used in cosmetic clinics across the globe to reduce subcutaneous adipose tissue and/or cellulite through apoptosis. Such noninvasive procedures have become widespread in the field of aesthetic medicine and the cosmetology industry in recent years. Zone Medical has selected the Lipolex cavitation system to represent this device category, where ease of use, lightweight and portable design and optimal settings range have placed it on par with significantly higher priced machines. The price to quality ration of the Lipolex system has made this a popular choice for budget-conscious cosmetic clinics and beauty spas who would like to offer their clients a broader range of popular and current therapies.
The Lipolex cavitation system weighs just over 5 kg and boasts dual low-intensity 28 and 38 KHz output frequencies, both of which have been shown to work effectively on the reduction of subcutaneous fat and of cellulite. Low-frequency ultrasound may be used as either an aesthetic treatment or toward the alleviation of chronic pain where it is typically used as thermal treatment in many physiotherapy practices. As a safer alternative to high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), the Lipolex machine is finding its way into non-medical cosmetic clinics for the treatment of local fat pad thickness reduction where it’s gentler action avoids adipocyte necrosis. While evidence-based studies are limited, customer satisfaction in regards to the use of low intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU) continues to rise, as witnessed on all of the major social media channels.
