Chiropractic care takes a whole-person approach to wellness, recognizing that many factors can affect both the quality of your life and your overall health. Sound nutrition and regular exercise are core principles of chiropractic medicine, but sometimes, even diet and exercise can’t get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. At Latronica Chiropractic in Furlong, Pennsylvania, Dr. Albert Latronica offers Cavi-Lipo treatments to help patients in the Bucks County area lose those last few extra inches.

What is Cavi-Lipo?
Cavi-Lipo is an FDA-approved state-of-the-art technology designed to eliminate excess pockets of fat, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and tighten your skin without surgery. The safe, non-invasive body shaping treatment uses focused ultrasound energy to destroy fat cells without harming surrounding tissues. Unlike other non-invasive body contouring treatments that rely on heat or cold to disrupt fat cells, Cavi-Lipo’s gentle ultrasound energy destroys fat cells safely, comfortably, and without any side effects.
Cavi-Lipo can be used on any area of the body that’s affected by persistent deposits of fat or cellulite, including your belly, hips, thighs, upper arms, and chin.
How does the treatment work?
Cavi-Lipo technology works by targeting the fat cells beneath your skin with gentle pulses of ultrasound energy that bust the walls of those cells. It’s a process known as ultrasound cavitation. The fat molecules are liquefied, released from inside the disrupted cells, and over time, your lymphatic system naturally flushes the melted fat cells from your body. The same ultrasound energy that destroys fat cells also stimulates the production of collagen, leading to firmer, tighter skin in the treatment area.
Is Cavi-Lipo right for me?
Cavi-Lipo helps reduce or eliminate persistent fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. It shouldn’t be considered a replacement for a healthy lifestyle or an easy way to lose weight, because it won’t help you shed excess pounds.
Rather, it’s designed to help you get rid of those last few inches and reach your personal shape goals, while reducing cellulite and tightening trouble spots. If you’re already at a healthy body weight, Cavi-Lipo is a safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted bulges without having to resort to fat-elimination surgery, like liposuction.
What is the procedure like?
Cavi-Lipo is a painless procedure that involves laying down as the ultrasound hand piece glides over the treatment area, delivering gentle pulses of energy. The lasts about 30-50 minutes, and most patients use the time to read or rest. As a non-surgical treatment, Cavi-Lipo doesn’t require anesthetics or an incision and you can resume your normal activities as soon as you’re done.
How soon will I see results?
Although you may see results after a single Cavi-Lipo treatment, most patients see the results they’re looking for over the course of three to six sessions, each spaced at least three days apart to give your body ample time to clear the liquefied fat cells from your system. It’s important to drink plenty of water and stay active following each treatment. Dr. Latronica will give you complete post-treatment recommendations to ensure successful results.
