Ultrasound is one of the safest technologies used globally. The technology is used in infants as well as pregnant women with the objective of imaging. When ultrasound beams are focused on a specific point, similar to the way a magnifying glass works, it is termed as High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HiFU
Some of the most commonly used applications of HiFU are:
- Elimination of Uterine Fibroids
- Treatment of prostate enlargement
- Breaking of Kidney Stones and
- FAT reduction
How does this technology work on targeting and reduction of FAT?
Our body develops FAT cells from birth till puberty. Excess calories are converted into FAT and stored in the FAT cells. The number of FAT cells do no increase in adulthood. The storage of FAT may directly increase the size of the FAT cells. OBESITY is simply the excessive collection of FAT in the FAT cells. The FAT right under the skin is called the subcutaneous FAT while the FAT around organs is Visceral FAT. Cellulite type of FAT is usually seen on HIPS and THIGHS and is more common in women.
Hifu target the FAT cells right under the skin i.e. the Subcutaneous FAT. HIFU concentrates up to 1000 beams of ultrasound energy with extreme precision at a targeted depth in the body. The FAT cells are destroyed and FAT is drained through the lymphatic system naturally. Once destroyed new FAT cells are not formed in adulthood. This technology is globally used for targeting and reduction of Subcutaneous FAT.
What are the benefits of High-Intensity Ultrasound technology?
There are multiple benefits of treatments taken HiFU. Some of the most favourable benefits felt globally are:
- Highly targeted Subcutaneous FAT reduction.
- The number of FAT cells are permanently reduced
- The technology is completely safe and has no side effect.
- The treatments are walk-in walk-out treatments with no down time.
How Safe is the treatment and the Technology?
The HiFU technology at Define Aesthetics is CE certified and completely safe with absolutely no side effects.
What can I expect during and after treatment?
HiFU treatments are walk-in, walk-out treatments. During the treatment, one has to simply lie down and relax. Slight heat is felt on the body part where treatment is taken while undergoing the treatment. There is absolutely NO_PAIN or downtime with the treatment. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. The result is reduced FAT cells and INCH LOSS.
