Microcurrent Lipolysis (For weight loss & Cellulite)

This is a trial I did based on a technique discussed in the world of microcurrent therapies, using microcurrents to destroy cellulite and fat cells

The case presents an overweight young man in his 30s with abdominal obesity. The person had multiple micocurrent sessions delivered via Tennant’s biomodulator Pro; each session is 90 minutes composed of different frequencies applied to the abdomen every 30 minute, to overcome the phenomenon of tolerance (the body adapt to the current like any drug)

Since the whole technique is new and there is a room for trial & error, I used 7 sessions cycle to observe the changes. The images show almost 50% reduction of abdominal fat within the first 7 sessions, and up to 70% reduction of abdominal fat within the second 7 sessions  

Although I didn’t find a solid explanation of how this works by the publications I read about such a technique, I believe it is the same mechanism used to destroy fat cells via “Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction” (UAL). In UAL, the fat cells are exposed to an alternating ultrasound waves with certain frequency that causes a phenomenon known as “Cavitation

Cavitation can be defined as a peculiar activity induced by the application of ultrasound waves in a liquid or liquid-like material that contains bubbles or pockets of gas or vapor. The alternating ultrasound frequency between positive and negative pressure causes compression & refraction of fat cells; when these fat cells reach the maximum bubble expansion limit, they burst releasing their content into the periphery, which will be then absorbed by the body

As a general rule in energy medicine, the drug you deliver is the “Frequency” of the wave you expose the tissue to. This frequency can be delivered via any wave (Ultrasonic, electric, magnetic, or photonic)

Below is another case of 28 years old female with mild thighs cellulite treated with microcurrent therapy for 7 sessions; the ultrasound images clearly show reduction of the subcutenous fat by 35.7% within the first 7 sessions
