reduce FAT

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.

Technology used

Medical Grade Techology
Our medical grade HIFU device is designed to non-invasively deliver focused, high intensity ultrasound energy directly into the fatty tissue under the skin so as to permanently destroy targeted fat cells by a process known as thermo-coagulation without causing any damage to the overlaying skin layers or surrounding tissue.

The object of the HIFU Body Fat Reduction technology is to achieve targeted reduction of fatty tissue by precisely focusing ultrasound energy to cause permanent disruption to fat cells, or adipocytes, without damage to the epidermis, dermis or underlying tissues and organs. Once the fat cells have been disrupted, chemotactic signals activate the body's inflammatory response mechanisms and the liquid fat and cell debris is transport away and flushed from the body over time. This results in an overall reduction in the volume of local fatty tissue in the treated area


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.

Everyone is different and responds uniquely to the treatment based on several factors. We recommend between 1 to 4 treatments of HIFU Fat Reduction for our clients spaced 4 weeks apart.
We will tailor a bespoke treatment plan suited to your unique requirements and may recommend combining it with other treatments to see the best results possible

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. We have delivered this treatment to several clients and most find it tolerable

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. With any treatment that works on your own body’s natural ability to heal and rejuvenate, results may vary from person to person.
