The HIFU handpiece delivers focused ultrasound waves to a precise depth to cause Necrosis of the fat cell. The controlled movement of the handpiece results in a grid of treated fat cells. The high frequency of the ultrasound wave, results in rapid heating of the focal zone at 1.3cm and 7mm under the skin leaving the skins surface unaffected. However this energy increases in temperature as it gets deeper within the skin due to the energy of the HIFU causing cellular friction. Exposing the fat cell to this high temperature causes rapid cell death (necrosis). The handpiece is placed on the area of treatment and held there for approximately 2 minutes and this will be repeated 3 times per treatment area. During treatment, you may feel the warmth of the hand piece and in some cases, it may get slightly hot and uncomfortable. You may also feel a slight vibration and tingling sensation, although this is completely normal.
A patch test & consultation is required at least 48hrs before treatment and a £50 deposit is required and redeemable against treatment.
