Non-surgical reduction of localized fat
True beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes

When the liposuction surgery is not indicated or is not desired by the patient there is one method of non-surgical reduction of subcutaneous fat that uses ultrasound and radio frequency. These forms of energy, if concentrated, are damaging the cells of the subcutaneous fat causing cell death. The anatomical regions to be treated are divided into areas that have a central region of 3 cm in diameter. The handpiece of the equipment will be applied interchangeably on all these areas in order to obtain a uniform effect. During each application, the hand-piece first sucks in the skin and subcutaneous and then starts emitting an ultrasound, and radio-frequency, which are concentrated in the center of the hand-piece. The treatment is a little uncomfortable and the result can be seen not earlier than 1 month after the first application.
