HIFU Body Lifting
GLC HIFU Body Lift
The latest technology to target focused areas of fat quickly is HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound). HIFU works by delivering focused energy at a precise depth of 1.3cm and 8mm to destroy fat cells. The high frequency of ultrasonic wave heats the underneath of the skin, effectively destroying the fat cells and tightening the skin in the area. Damaged cells are then flushed away through a natural removal process through the lymphatic system over 3 months.
How this tech works
The HIFU hand-piece delivers focussed ultrasound waves to a specific depth to cause necrosis of the fat cell. The controlled movement of the hand-piece 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 8mm under the skin leaving the skins surface unaffected. 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).
