HIFU is a highly precise medical procedure that applies high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to deliver the energy into deeper layers of skin (SMAS layer) as well as dermis layer in a non-invasive way. Compared to the lasers and RF that are designed for the immediate effect, HIFU provides a long-lasting effect as well as the immediate effects by affecting the deeper layer of skin.
HIFU treatment delivers the high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to targeted depths of the skin and generates heat lesions.
The heat lesions promote collagen and elastin remodelling in the skin by a natural wound healing process.
Skin Lifting & Tightening effects by hyperthermia & wound healing process.
Heat lesions are made when the energy generates the heat above 57 Celsius.
HIFU – Targeting at depths of 8 mm and 13 mm target the subcutaneous fat, the stubborn fat that can be difficult to get rid of around your belly, lower back, and thighs.
Visceral fat collects around your organs inside your body and can be shifted by exercise, sometimes subcutaneous fat – the fat the sits below the skin needs a bit of help!
The fat is literally melted by the High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound heat energy. Once melted it excretes via the lymphatic system and the liver and via your urine when you flush it out drinking lots of water.
The fat is PERMANENTLY destroyed! Immediate results can be seen with some people but we are all different. Optimum results are seen 8 weeks to 12 weeks after the treatment when the melted subcutaneous fat has metabolised and excreted from the body.
For some people, 1 treatment is enough and effects are permanent – providing you don’t eat lots of unhealthy foods and put the fat back on!
For some – they may require a course of treatments – 6 treatments spaced at 2-3 month intervals.
