What is HIFU body sculpting?

High-Intensity Frequency Ultrasound (HIFU) is a body contouring treatment meant for permanent fat loss. It uses heat to destroy fat cells in a specific area of the body. Also, it increases collagen growth to make the skin tighter and firmer. Moreover, it is a non-invasive technique that requires no downtime.

It works with the help of fractional ultrasound energy that beams through the skin’s surface towards deeper tissues (mostly body fat). At 60C to 70C, the beams burn persistent fatty areas. It can include the stomach, thighs, or back. What these beams do is that they dissolve fatty cells. Over time, the body eliminates them.

HIFU body sculpting is meant for tightening excess and helping with cellulite reduction. In addition, it will help in smoothen the lumps on your skin. However, it is imperative to mark and measure the areas that have to be treated beforehand. Usually, pictures are taken to track the progress of the treatment. The procedure might take up to one hour, depending upon the size of the area that needs to be treated.

The best advantages of HIFU are that it does not hurt and it is safe. While it is mandatory to get it done by expert professionals, the procedure is mainly harmless. You might experience some tingling sensation which may make you uncomfortable. The degree of the sensation depends on the target area. But it does not have any long-term harmful effects.

Which areas can be treated?

  • Back fat
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Cellulite
  • Stomach

Also, it depends on where you are getting the treatment. Different centres offer different treatments. In addition, you must remember that it is more of a tightening treatment and less of a fat reduction treatment.

If you want to go for fat reduction, then EMS body sculpting is recommended for you. Like HIFU body sculpting, it does not have any downtime. It is also a non-invasive treatment. What happens in this treatment is that it causes muscle contractions at a sonic speed. Whether it is HIFU or EMS, you can always ask the experts and visit the website of St. Mary Medical Centre for more details.
