Body sculpting HIFU is another modality used to target stubborn fat through focused ultrasonic waves, to destroy the subcutaneous fat tissue.
HIFU | Ultrasound Body Sculpting
Destroy fat cells + tighten the skin
Eliminate subcutaneous fat + tighten the skin.
*Disclaimer: Results vary from patient to patient.
Unlike fat freezing, the high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in heating under the skin, also destroying the fat cells and tightening the skin in the area treated at the same time. 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 body handpiece is a completely different treatment to face cartridge in that it penetrates at 3 different depths: 6mm, 9mm and 13mm, which act to tighten, lift and reduce stubborn areas of fat specifically for the body.
Macro + Micro Focused Ultrasound.
Our medical grade HIFU handpiece delivers macro focused ultrasound waves to a precise depth to cause necrosis of the fat cell which for some patients can result in instant, permanent fat reduction.
The high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in rapid heating of the focal zone at 3 depths;
- 9mm and
- 6mm under the skin leaving the skins surface unaffected.
The controlled movement of the handpiece results in a grid of treated fat cells making this treatment ideal for fat reduction and precision body sculpting.
Complimentary Consultation with our technicians.
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 smaller areas, and the candidate should be within 5-10kg 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.
- Not every patient will be an ideal candidate for HIFU body sculpting so it is important to book in for a complimentary consultation with one of our trained technicians.
