What can HIFU ultrasound do for me?

If you’re looking to get in better shape, but need a little help getting there, HIFU Ultrasound may be for you. HIFU Ultrasound treatments use high-intensity focused ultrasound to non-invasively get rid of targeted fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) without surgery. The average waistline reduction after just a single one-hour treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) – which typically means one dress or pant size.


Why is it better than alternative treatments?

We prefer HIFU Ultrasound over surgical procedures like liposuction as you will not have the surgical risks, scarring and post-operation downtime. HIFU is also more flexible and is able to treat more areas to give a more even result.

HIFU Ultrasound delivers far superior results than other older non-invasive body contouring / fat reduction treatments like lasers or lower energy ultrasound technologies. HIFU delivers high energy into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissues.


Where does the fat go?

HIFU Ultrasound patients ask is "where does the fat go?" Having a clearer picture of the science behind HIFU Ultrasound and how fat is metabolized in the body will help you understand how HIFU Ultrasound works with your body to help change your shape.

  • The treatment head of the HIFU Ultrasound system is placed on the area to be treated.

  • High-intensity ultrasound energy focuses on the targeted fat, destroying fat cells beneath the surface layers of the skin.

  • A continuous lesion is created in the targeted fat and the skin layer is not harmed.

  • And where it goes? The treated fat tissue is removed through the body's natural healing and elimination process, leaving you with a thinner, more contoured waistline.


Is HIFU Ultrasound an alternative to Surgical Weight Loss/Liposuction?

For patients needing significant fat reduction, these invasive or minimally-invasive procedures are often associated with high-costs, surgical risks/side-effects, and extensive downtime. HIFU Ultrasound treatments are not an alternative to these types of procedures.

How about Healthy Diet and Exercise?

HIFU Ultrasound is not used for weight loss and best results are achieved when your body weight is stable and you have a healthy lifestyle. The best solution for long-term weight loss and a lean, trim body. HIFU Ultrasound can be an effective complement to "get that last inch".


How many HIFU treatments I need?

A single session of HIFU Lipo weight loss treatmentis enough to get visible results. Multiple sessions may be required based on individual requirements.
