HIFU Fat Reduction

Ultrasound Fat Reduction

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

HIFU is the latest technology used to target specific focused areas of fat in the fastest possible treatment time.

The high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in heating under the skin, effectively destroying the fat cells and tightening the skin in the area treated.

The treated cells are then flushed away via the body’s natural removal process. This process continues for up to 6 months post treatment.

The Technology

How It Works

The HIFU handpiece delivers focussed ultrasound waves to a precise depth to cause Necrosis of the fat cell.

The controlled movement of the handpiece results in a grid of treated fat cells.

The high frequency of the ultrasound wave, results in a rapid heating of the focal zone at 1.3cm and 8mm under the skin leaving the skins surface unaffected.

*Disclaimer: Results vary from person to person due to family history, age and different skin types.

The Science

Focused Fat Reduction

This energy increases in temperature as it gets deeper within the skin due to the energy of the HIFU causing cellular friction. Exposing the fat cell to this high temperature causes rapid cell death (necrosis).

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate for HIFU?

The ideal candidate for HIFU,  is for a  person who is mildly above ideal weight, and cannot shift stubborn pockets of fat.  HIFU is ideal for sculpting larger areas, and the candidate should be within 10-15kg of their ideal weight range.  HIFU is not a weight loss treatment, and does not replace the benefits of proper diet and exercise.  It does not treat obesity.

How many Treatments of HIFU are recommended?

Generally anywhere between 2 to 4 treatments per area are recommended, however many clients see results after a single treatment.  It is important to come in for a thorough assessment so our Therapists can tailor a specific plan designed for you and your goals.

Are the results permanent?

Permanent, as long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long term results should remain stable.

What Results Can I Expect from the Treatment?

Results can be seen from 2 to 4 months post treatment. The average permanent fat reduction of the treatment area after just one single session is typically 2 to 4cm.  Its important to note that these treatments continue to work after you have visited the clinic, as they work on your body’s own natural elimination process.

Can I combine HIFU Fat Reduction with other treatments?

Our HIFU fat reduction treatment is best for targeting larger stubborn pockets of fat, however if you wish to have more of an overall fat reduction treatment your therapist may recommend combining your HIFU body treatment as part of a treatment course incorporating other technologies for a more complete fat reduction treatment. Body Sculpting Clinics have specific technology that can be combined to enable you to target your needs and devise a specific and bespoke treatment plan for you ensuring maximum results.

What will I experience during my treatment?

A handpiece will be placed on the skin, this is the handpiece used to target focussed energy to the fat cells. The handpiece is placed on the area of treatment and held there for approximately 2 minutes, this will be repeated 3 times per treatment area. During treatment, you may feel the warmth of the handpiece, and in some cases it may get slightly hot and uncomfortable. You may also feel a slight vibration and tingling sensation, although this is completely normal.
