HIFU - Fat Reduction
HIFU is a permanent fat loss treatment. Using heat destroys the fat cells in a specific target area like the lower abdomen or the thighs. Not only does it destroy fat, but it also boosts collagen growth which makes the skin tighter. It also doesn’t require any downtime.
HIFU fat reduction has grown in popularity. While high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) has been used for over half a century to treat malignancies non – invasive methods, it was only recently explored as a tool for selective adipose tissue ablation. HIFU works by concentrating high-intensity ultrasonic waves at the level of subcutaneous adipose tissue, resulting in localized inflammatory cells and contraction and thickening of surrounding collagen fibers while sparing the surrounding tissue.
Research revealed the safety and efficacy of HIFU for abdominal and flank fat reduction. These trials consistently demonstrate a decrease in abdomen circumference of at least 2 cm following a single therapy. Mild, temporary procedural, and post-procedural discomfort, erythema, bruising, and swelling are the most common negative impacts. HIFU is a safe and effective method of reducing abdominal fat. When it comes to cosmetic treatments for skin tightening, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new technology that some consider a painless and comfortable option for facelifts. It is also applied for other purposes such as total face rejuvenation, lifting and tightening, and body contouring.

How does HIFU treatment work?
HIFU works by delivering a 24-line matrix of focused energy at a depth of 1.3cms to target and break down specific areas of fat in the fastest possible time. The high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in heating under the skin to effectively destroy fat cells and tighten skin.
What are the Results of HIFU?
The results of HIFU treatment can be seen within 4 to 6 weeks as the body needs time to naturally process and remove the destroyed fat cells out of the body.
