Body contouring is simply a fancy term used to describe the process of non-surgical fat reduction.
There are number of different aesthetic procedures that can be used to get rid of these stubborn pockets of fat that refuse to move when you’re using traditional exercise methods, but one of the best is to use HIFU to get rid of them for good.
HIFU, otherwise known as high intensity focused ultrasound, is a piece of technology which has been around for a number of years now and has quite a few different uses within both of the beauty and medical industries, but one of the things that it is incredibly good at it targeting specific cells at a much deeper level than any of its competitors without causing any risk to the surrounding cells and tissue. By going much deeper, it can target the subcutaneous level beneath the skin and actually break down the fat and in the process, tighten the outer levels of the skin.

During the treatment, the ultrasound energy causes damage to the fat cells at a molecular level, causing them to break down and disperse into your lymphatic system where it is transported to your liver. Your liver then simply processes this in the same way that it would with food that you are consuming and passes it through the body’s natural methods.
Following your treatment, you may notice a bit of redness in your skin and its very common to experience some swelling or tingling sensations in the area where you have had the treatment done, it’s important to know that these are very mild and completely temporary.
You may also notice some initial positive effects such as lifting and toning, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
ost patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual's collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body's natural aging process.
