NON-SURGICAL REDUCTION OF LOCALIZED FAT
DEPOSITS USING MACRO FOCUSED ULTRASOUND
True beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes
The surgery liposuction is not always indicated or wanted. In these cases can be used non-surgical methods that are able to kill cells of the subcutaneous fat. Macro focused ultrasound is one of such methods. When it is focused and concentrated in a single point, it is harmful to the affected cells. The abdomen is divided into small squares that will be processed in sequence. The ultrasonic beams are concentrated at a depth of 9 or 13 mm and remove the superficial fat. The handpiece is equipped with powerful contact cooling system and it is placed in a close contact with the surface layers of skin. This allows the thermal damage to take place only in the depth and to maintain the skin temperature low. The treatment is only minimally uncomfortable, and its effect is evident completely in 2-3 months after the treatment. The treatment is recommended for those who have a greater thickness of subcutaneous fat than 2.5 cm and BMI (Body mass index – body mass index – calculated by dividing the weight expressed in kilograms by the square of height expressed in meters). The sessions can be repeated after this time interval.
