HIFU is an innovative and modern technology which provides a non-invasive alternative to liposuction and other types of fat reduction surgeries. The treatment uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound to permanently destroy fat cells without harming the surface of the skin while also combining a skin tightening element to the treatment, unlike any other procedure. During treatment, ultrasound energy is
projected through at a depth of 13mm to target and destroy fat cells permanently and deliver uniform, predictable results after one single treatment.

HIFU works differently compared to many other non-invasive fat reduction technologies, such as Radio-Frequency and lasers where the energy is highly absorbed or scattered near the skin’s surface, limiting penetration into subcutaneous fat tissue and therefore delivering temporary results. HIFU ultrasound energy, on the other hand, penetrates through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue, creating a powerful thermal effect in the body which destroys fat without damaging the surrounding tissue. At the same time, high-intensity ultrasound can also speed up the bodies metabolism as well as shrink skin fibres, meaning the treatment will also work to tighten and lift the skin.


HIFU Ultrasound technology is completely safe and has been used within the medicine and the aesthetics industry for decades. It works by contracting and shortening muscle fibres, which in turn, produces the lifting and tightening effect.

HIFU destroys fat cells in different areas around the body:

Would HIFU work for me?

The ideal candidate for HIFU is a person who is mildly above ideal weight who is struggling to shift stubborn pockets of fat. HIFU works very well for sculpting larger areas, and the candidate should be within 10-15kg of their ideal weight range. HIFU is not a weight loss treatment and does not replace the benefits of proper diet and exercise.

Are the results permanent?

HIFU breaks down fat cells permanently and as long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

What results can I expect from the treatment?

Results can be seen from 2 to 4 months post-treatment. The average permanent fat reduction of the treatment area after just one single session is typically 2-4cm. It is important to be aware that these treatments continue to work over a number of months, as they work on your body’s own natural elimination process.
