What is HIFU?

May 1st, 2016 Posted by Body Contouring No Comment yet

HIFU is an acronym for high intensity focused ultrasound. It is a technology that uses ultrasound waves to noninvasively treat unwanted adipose tissue. This type of therapy also helps increase collagen and elastin production for a more youthful, vibrant look.

Is this an alternative to liposuction?
In short, no. Liposuction is a permanent procedure that provides instant results for those who have an over abundance of adipose tissue and are looking for drastic results. HIFU provides more subtle results for those who have problem areas that have not improved despite an active lifestyle and proper eating habits. HIFU is not a viable option for those with excessive visceral fat.

Are results permanent?

HIFU is a treatment that eliminates fat cells that in most cases will be permanent. The ultrasonic waves create an intensity that ultimately releases the contents of the fat cell into the body for absorption and elimination through the liver. Most cases require multiple treatments in order to achieve maximum results.
