If the surface to be treated is important (abdomen, thighs ...), we use focused ultrasound.HIFU waves (high-intensity focused ultrasound) have significant penetration, and in turn, create significant heat. The treatment exposes the treated zone to a certain type of long-length sound waves, the high-intensity focused ultrasound. Sound waves focus on sub-cutaneous fat, and by raising the localised temperature, ‘burn’ the fatty cells without damaging the surrounding tissues.
After about two weeks, the destroyed cells are naturally eliminated. The first results start to be visible, but you must wait for three months to see optimal results. This treatment is a bit more painful than the other solutions, and can result in redness or swelling.
It is not recommended for the obese in case it leads to fat fibrosis, hormonal troubles, or coagulation. One single treatment usually suffices.
