Ultrasounds are acoustic waves of a frequency ranging from 16 kHz (i.e. exceeding the upper threshold of human audibility) to several dozen MHz. In nature, ultrasounds are emitted by some mammals, including bats and dolphins, and used by them for echolocation.
Ultrasounds are widely applied in aesthetic medicine and cosmetology for skin quality improvement, lifting, cellulite and body fat reduction. They are used in procedures such as cavitation peeling, non-invasive lifting (HIFU) and slimming treatments (cavitation lipolysis). Ultrasound treatmentsbring very good results and are very safe if properly selected for the problem and performed by an experienced specialist.
