Pockets of stubborn Fat, Body Sculpting,
Targeted Fat Removal
3D-HIFU is the latest technology used
to target specific focused areas of fat in
the fastest possible treatment time. This
technology works by delivering focused
energy at a depth of 1.3cm and 8mm to
destroy fat cells. The high frequency of the
ultrasound wave results in heating under
the skin, effectively destroying the fat cells
and tightening the skin in the area treated.
The damaged cells are flushed away via
a natural removal process through the
lymphatic system that continues for up to
How this tech works
The HIFU handpiece delivers focussed
ultrasound waves to a precise depth
to cause Necrosis of the fat cell. The
controlled movement of the handpiece
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. However 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).
What areas can be improved with
This treatment is great for busting those
unwanted stubborn pockets of fat.
Recommended areas for treatment are

Can I combine 3D-HIFU body with other
3D-HIFU body is best for targeting stubborn
pockets of fat, however if you wish to have
more of an overall fat reduction treatment
your therapist may recommend combining
your 3D-HIFU body treatment as part of
a treatment course incorporating other
technologies for a more complete fat
reduction treatment. The beauty of 3D-lipo
is that each technology can be combined to
enable you to target your needs and devise
a specific and bespoke treatment plan for
you ensuring maximum results.
What will I experience during treatment?
A handpiece will be placed on the skin, this
is the handpiece used to target focussed
energy to the fat cells. The handpiece is
placed on the area of treatment and held
there for approximately 2 minutes, this will
be repeated 3 times per treatment area.
During treatment, you may feel the warmth
of the handpiece, and it some cases it may
get slightly hot and uncomfortable. You
may also feel a slight vibration and tingling
sensation, although this is completely
