This is a non-invasive beauty treatment that targets areas where fat has been deposited such as the belly and thighs. It uses ultrasound waves that free the fat cells and then suck them away though a tiny tube. The fat cells can then be used in other areas of the body if required.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A form of local anaesthesia is usually administered prior to the procedure. The process begins with the target area being filled with a saline solution. Then ultrasound waves are directed at the fatty tissue. This is followed by massage that loosens the fat cells for the final suction through a small tube.
This is a popular and relatively non-invasive treatment. The results can be impressive.
A number of treatments may be necessary before a result is seen. The treatment does not prevent further development of body fat, merely removes existing fat cells. There is recovery time of half a day up to 3 days.
