Ultrasound waves have been used in medicine with great success since 1980 for the disintegration of kidney stones (ESWL). Now we use optimised ultrasound waves to reduce fat cells. Recently ultrasound based machines such as ultrashape, liposonix, ulthera and accent ultra have become available for body contouring.
Our machines address the underlying causes of cellulite and body fat.
We achieve this with a combination of Ultrasound, radio-frequency, Cryo [cooling] and Vacuum massage.
Radiofrequency waves heat up the tissues under the superficial skin layers to stimulate collagen synthesis and also have an effect in reducing superficial and also deep fat. Subsequent massage aids in removal of fat from the body.
Laser assisted liposuction
A tiny laser fibre is used to melt the fat under local anaesthesia and then tiny canulae are used to suck liquified fat out. This is the GOLD-Standard fat reduction option and you can find out more under surgical treatment options.
We do also offer injections to reduce fat.
Despite advances in technology and success in fat reduction non-invasive methods of fat reduction provide modest results at best and we do not recommend these as treatment of choice. We have seen several patients who have tried these treatments elsewhere and have been dissatisfied with results. They do have their place in carefully selected patients and we firmly believe that Tumescent liposuction remains the treatment of choice as it provides best results with outstanding safety record.
Why not come and see us to start your fat reduction treatments. We will guide you to best treatment for the unique you.
