HIFU – fat reduction and body contouring

Jakie efekty daje zabieg?

HIFU, through the use of special parameters, is able to remove local excess fat while tightening and firming the skin over the treated areas. Thus, it allows to realistically model the silhouette without surgical intervention. In particular, the technology allows:


– reduce local excess body fat in areas such as abdomen, thighs, flanks, arms, butterflies, buttocks, knees
– ret rid of sagging skin after pregnancy and lost pounds

Dla kogo przeznaczony jest zabieg?

HIFU technology can be used all year round, regardless of the sun exposure. This treatment is aimed at people who want a long-lasting and natural effect, which is achieved even after a single treatment. It does not require a recovery period, so active patients can return to their daily activities right away.

Na czym polega zabieg?

HIFU technology uses the action of focused high-intensity ultrasound, which, reaching particular depths of the skin, induces thermal and mechanical processes. The former sets the cells into vibration, as a result of which, under the influence of increased temperature, remodeling of the skin is created. The resulting damage influences the initiation of regenerative processes. Tissues begin to rebuild.Collagen fibers are constricted. Collagen and elastin are stimulated to synthesize. Highly concentrated ultrasound also works on the superficial musculo-fascial system. Using deeper penetrating heads, ultrasound breaks up fat cells, leading to the elimination of local excess fat.


Before the procedure, ultrasound gel is applied to the cleansed skin surface. The doctor then applies the device’s head to the specified treatment area. To do this, it uses appropriately selected transducer tips that operate at different depths. They are selected individually according to the patient’s needs, anatomical structure and expected results.


Usually the procedure does not require anesthesia. Its duration ranges from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the body area. While it is in progress, the patient may feel gentle pricks and warmth. In patients who are very sensitive and afraid of pain, we can precede the procedure with the application of an anesthetic ointment.

Co będziesz odczuwać po zabiegu?

After the procedure is completed, the patient’s skin may be mildly red and swollen. The erythema usually persists until about 1h after the procedure. Note that the procedure itself does not break or damage the outer layers of the epidermis. This means that patients can quickly return to daily activities, apply makeup and continue their daily skin care.

Przeciwwskazania i działania niepożądane

Any medical procedure, including aesthetics, is fraught with the risk of side effects due to its invasiveness. The safety and comfort of the patient is our priority, so we make every effort to minimize risks at every step and immediately and professionally counteract possible complications. Exact information on each procedure, its course, preparation and possible side effects, is discussed at the consultation appointment preceding the procedure.


Contraindications to the procedure include:


– pregnancy and lactation period
– skin lesions and wounds occurring directly in the treatment area
– cancers
– active herpes
– the presence of metal parts and implants

Jak często należy powtarzać zabieg?

We can expect the intended effect after just one treatment. In patients who require more intensive stimulation, the attending physician may repeat the treatment procedure at the earliest about 6 months after the first treatment. The effect can last up to 3 years.
