Latest innovation in non-invasive treatments using High Intensity Focused Ultrasonic heat energy to both permanently melt fat cells and tighten the skin together at the same time.
What is it
HIFU Body contouring is another non-invasive modality used to permanently destroy fat cells without harming the skin’s surface and comes with an added benefit of tightening the skin through focused ultrasonic heat energy. It is particularly effective in treating deposits of excess fat in small and large areas of the body (such as stomach, love handles and thighs) where it’s often hard to remove fat through diet and exercise alone
How does it work?
During a treatment, high-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the targeted fat, like the way a magnifying glass works. The energy passes through the skin and the targeted fat beneath the surface at 60-70 degrees to permanently destroy the fat cells.
Over the next few weeks & months, the body naturally removes the destroyed fat which is drained to the liver via your natural lymphatic channels and circulation, leaving you with a more contoured and firmer area treated.
Further result of skin tightening can continue up to 3 months after a single treatment, as new collagen and elastin take time to develop.
How is HIFU FAT REDUCTION different from FAT FREEZING?
Both Fat Freezing (Cryolipolysis) and HIFU Body Lipolysis are clinically-proven and safe non surgical treatments for permanent removal of fat in the treated area, however both have slightly different applications which are tailored to individual body type requirements and goals. Since everyone is so different and everyone has different treatment needs, we would love to book you in for a free consultation. This will allow us to discuss the most suitable treatment tailored for you, so it delivers the top results you are after.

During the procedure, the therapist moves the head of the HIFU handpiece around the area to be treated. Some clients experience tiny amounts of tingling, prickling, or warm sensations but these vary in severity and depending on fat thickness and the area to be treated. After treatment, there could be further mild discomfort, bruising, redness, or swelling which subsides over next few days to a couple of weeks.

Results may be seen at 1-2 weeks but are usually seen within 4 to 6 weeks, which is the time needed for the body to naturally process and flush away ablated fat cells in the treated area. Further result of skin tightening can continue up to 3 months after a single treatment, as new collagen and elastin take time to develop.
