With the new year well underway, fitness buffs and health gurus are brainstorming new and inventive methods. To maintain their health while maintaining a safe six-foot distance from one another (via Nuance Health). According to the 2020 Statista Global Consumer Poll, 44 percent of U.S. survey participants want to exercise more in the new year. While 42 percent want to reform their diet by incorporating better meal options. Losing weight and reducing alcohol use were also among the most popular responses. Which isn’t surprising given that weight loss is a major New Year’s resolution in the United States.
Committing to improving your health and getting in shape is a good idea. But exercise and a healthy diet aren’t always enough (via The Healthy). Ultrasonic cavitation can help with this.
Ultrasonic cavitation is a non-invasive body shaping procedure that requires little or no downtime and has few adverse effects. Plus, you can do it yourself at home with a cavitation machine. which employs heat and sound waves to tone stubborn fat areas.
Do cavitation machines work?
Let’s get one thing straight right away: ultrasonic cavitation isn’t a weight-loss treatment. It’s more of a toner or contouring treatment for the body (via Healthline). To put it another way, it’s not a quick treatment for weight loss.
Cavitation devices break up fat cells by injecting ultrasonic pulses deep into the skin. Your lymphatic system then absorbs and transforms those spiteful fat cells into the trash (via Healthline). Having said that, research (although small) demonstrates that ultrasonic cavitation helps to reduce body fat (via the Aesthetic Surgery Journal). Cavitation may work best on “fibrotic” areas of the body, such as the chest and back, according to a study published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The face, neck, upper arms, stomach, hips, and thigh area can all be treated with this equipment.
What’s the bottom line? Although ultrasonic cavitation may not provide a speedy weight reduction solution, it is an excellent option for people who want to remove body fat without the cost or surgical risks of liposuction (via Medarts Weight Loss Specialists).
Why Intermittent Fasting Won’t Help You Lose Weight
Intermittent fasting may appear to be a dieter’s dream come true. After all, you just need to abstain from eating for a limited number of hours each day — and sure, sleeping time counts!

Then, if you stick to the common 16/8 hour schedule, you’ll have till 8 p.m. to sate your hunger, however, no late-night eating or drinking is a bummer.
Many claims about IF’s alleged benefits come from “primarily male biohackers,” according to nutritionist Alisa Vitti, founder of FLO Living. She fears that this type of diet will not only be useless but also dangerous to women.
