Despite HIFU therapies generally targeting anti-aging skin problems, the technology also supports fat loss, such as fat cheeks removal procedures. HIFU, also called High-intensity Focused Ultrasound, utilizes ultrasound technology to allow for collagen production, which helps body contouring and skin laxity.

Even though HIFU is made for skin lifting by targeting various skin layers to the SMAS layer, its ultrasound waves could go deeper towards your subcutaneous layer (fat layer). As fat cells are sensitive to shifts in temperature, a sharp temperature change stimulates fat cell reduction. The ultrasound wave’s high frequency leads to subcutaneous layer heating. The thermal-induced destructed fat cells are permanently eliminated through your lymphatic system. This targeted treatment lets effective fat remodeling over the treated region.

As we age, the body naturally loses collagen. Since collagen assists in keeping the skin tight, the more fibers our body have, the firmer it is. HIFU is a non-invasive …
