Wellaholic conducts in-house research on slimming as part of our efforts to keep current with the latest slimming, fat freezing, body sculpting and body contouring technologies and trends. We also examine case studies, research reports from various dermatological journals and medical journals. This helps us to improve our slimming treatments to improve efficacy, safety as well as comfort for Wellaholic’s customers who choose us as their slimming service provider.

In this 2018 study by Angélica R Araújo, Natália V Moreira, Poliana R Parreiras, Samantha P de O Rocha and Eliane MS Oliveira, the team investigated the effectiveness of using high intensity ultrasound (ultracavitation) on the reduction of abdominal adiposity or fat in humans. They concluded that high intensity ultrasound proved to be effective in reducing abdominal adiposity in the subject treated in the study. The effects of ultracavitation on the reduction of waist circumference were relatively satisfactory, as well as on the reduction of the value of the skin folds and the thickness of the hypodermic layer.

Background of Research

The localized abdominal adiposity is the accumulation of fat in the abdominal region. This fact contributes so that the loss of measurements in the abdominal region does not always happen in a satisfactory way, compromising both the health and the esthetics of the individual. This, together with the current appreciation of low levels of body fat, leads people to dissatisfaction with their body’s appearance and low self-esteem.

Objective of Study

: To evaluate the effects of high intensity ultrasound (ultracavitation) on the reduction of abdominal adiposity in humans.


ultrasonic waves transform your fat cells into fatty acids. Your body can then dispose of those fatty acids

Case study, performed in a 22-year-old female, with a diagnosis of abdominal adiposity. An ultrasound examination of the bilateral abdominal wall was performed before and after treatment with ultracavitation to evaluate the efficacy of the procedure. The treatment was performed only in the left hemi abdomen; the right hemi abdomen was used for control. Three ultracavitation sessions were performed at a requency of once per week. The parameters used were: continuous mode ultrasound, 30Watts intensity, for 85 minutes per session, in an area of 100cm2. Before and after each session we performed plicometry of the skin folds in the abdominal and suprailiac regions and also the perimetry of the abdominal circumference and the right and left hemi abdomen. For the study, the volunteer also did an alimentary record and answered the International Questionnaire on Physical Activity (version 6).

Results: According to ultrasonography of the abdominal wall, there was a reduction of 9.5% in the thickness of the treated nodulated hypodermic layer and 8.1% of the untreated side. Regarding
the plicometry, there was a mean reduction in skin fold size of 15.7% on the treated side and 6.8% on the untreated side. In the abdominal circumference, there was a mean decrease of 3.7% in the total circumference; of 1.4% in the circumference of the left hemi abdomen (treated side) and 1.9% on the right side (control).


Thickness of the hypodermic layer: the thickness of the hypodermic layer of the abdominal region was determined by ultrasound examination of the abdominal wall, performed separately in the right
and left abdomen. The examination was performed by a radiologist, the day before the start of treatment (pre-treatment) and the first day immediately after the last session of the study.

Skin fold: the skin folds of the abdominal and suprailiac regions were measured using an adipometer (Innovare from the Cescorf brandPorto Alegre, Brazil). The measurements were performed in the right
and left hemi abdomen at the beginning and end of each study session, always by the same evaluator. For each fold, three measurements and the arithmetic mean considered for the analysis were made.

Abdominal circumference: Measurement of abdominal circumference (abdominal perimetry) was performed using a tape measure. Two measures were taken: one considering the umbilical
scar as a reference point and another whose reference was a point located 4cm below the umbilical scar. At each reference point, the total circumference of the abdomen (total abdominal perimetry) and
the circumference of the hemi abdomen (region between the umbilical scar and the spinal process L1 of the spine) on the right and left sides (perimetrial partial abdominal and left partial abdominal perimetrial,
respectively) measured. Measurements were performed at each treatment session, immediately before and after the intervention. In each measurement were made 3 measures and the average considered
for the analysis.

Study on ultracavitation

Results and Conclusion

High-intensity ultrasound has been shown to be effective in reducing abdominal adiposity in the treated subject. The effects of ultracavitation on the reduction of abdominal circumference, cutaneous pleural size and thickness of the hypodermic layer were satisfactory, and this feature may be an important adjunct in
the treatment of abdominal adiposity.

Ultrasonic Cavi 360 by Wellaholic to Break Apart Fat Cells

What is Ultrasonic Cavi 360?

  • Ultrasonic Cavi 360 uses ultrasound cavitation technology to break down fat deposits in body.
  • Patients can see immediate result and will continue to see results in reduction of fat over a few weeks.
  • Ultrasonic Cavi 360 is a much safer alternative to other surgical options such as liposuction.
  • This fat cavitation treatment is ideal for targeting small areas of fat for better body contouring and sculpting.
  • Ultrasonic Cavi 360 works well on upper arms, belly, love handles, thighs, and back—where fat cells accumulate.
  • The consultant will glide the cavitation machine’s handheld probe over the desired area, delivering low-frequency sound waves.
  • The wave will “vibrate” the walls of fat cells until they burst and turn into free fatty acids the body can expel.
  • Ultrasonic Cavi 360 works extremely well with WellaFreeze and WellaSculpt to accelerate fat disposal via the lymphatic system.
  • Clinical studies have shown 15.2% average fat layer or cellulite reduction in the thighs after cavitation.
The Ultrasonic Cavi 360 is an extremely safe fat loss procedure with no downtime
