What is HIFU Body Sculpting? Everything You Need to Know
You had your baby years ago, and that mummy tummy just won’t go away. You’ve been regularly exercising and watching your diet, but the fat refuses to budge.
However, you don’t want to have an invasive procedure like liposuction. You don’t have time to recover from surgery. Do you have any options?
One non-invasive treatment to consider is HIFU body sculpting. Let’s look at how this simple treatment can help reduce stubborn fat.
How HIFU Works
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive method for improving your appearance. It is a popular treatment for wrinkle reduction, but also has applications for body sculpting.
The HIFU device delivers focused ultrasound waves to the skin. The energy heats up the tissue underneath the skin surface, causing cellular damage. This signals the skin cells to produce more collagen.
The result is skin with more elasticity and a youthful appearance.
You don’t need to do any preparation before a HIFU treatment. Although some people report a tingling sensation during the treatment, it’s generally painless.
HIFU Body Sculpting Treatment
Ultrasounds can have anti-aging applications, but clinics also use HIFU for weight loss. There are different handpieces used based on the area of the body that needs treatment. This allows the device to target with precision and protects the skin surface from damage.
In addition to signalling skin cells to produce collagen, the ultrasound waves heat up fat under the skin. The heat destroys the fat, which the body naturally gets rid of.
Body sculpting treatments with HIFU are appropriate for a post-pregnancy tummy and reducing fat in the abdomen. You can also use HIFU for contouring of the arms and thighs. Some people use HIFU on the buttocks to get the lifting effect without surgery.
In addition to reducing fat, the HIFU tightens the skin. The result is inch reduction with firmer skin in the treated area. The treatment can also reduce the crepe texture of the skin, improving the appearance of the area.
There are many benefits of HIFU over other treatments for body sculpting. Surgical body contouring treatments require anaesthesia and recovery time. They also come with high price tags.
HIFU prices are affordable, and you can go back to your normal activities after a treatment. The treatment is generally considered safe with minimal minor side effects.
One popular surgical body contouring procedure is liposuction. As with all surgeries, liposuction carries risks of complications. You can develop blood clots or infections.
You’ll also have scarring from a surgery, which some people may find upsetting. Because HIFU is non-invasive, scarring is not a problem.
Before doing any weight loss treatment, you should talk to your doctor to determine your individual risks and benefits.
