What is HIFU Non surgical fat reduction?

The Ultraformer III is a high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) device that is designed to reduce adipose (fatty) tissue, promote contouring and stimulate skin rejuvenation.

Our medical-grade device delivers ultrasound energy at precise depths of the tissue. This creates heat which stimulates the break down of fat and promotes tissue remodelling in the body, helping to lift and tighten loose skin.

What are the benefits of Non-Surgical Fat Reduction?

  • Non-invasive fat reduction procedure with no needles
  • Improves body contour by breaking down stubborn fatty areas
  • Tightens loose and sagging skin
  • Improved skin texture
  • Increases blood circulation
  • No downtime after treatment

How does it work?

The Ultraformer III uses high-intensity ultrasound to heat targeted areas, creating a coagulating effect on the deeper layers of the skin. We use multi-depth cartridges to directly transfer ultrasound energy into the deeper layers of the treated area to trigger collagen renewal and fat breakdown.

MMFU (Mirco Macro Focused Ultrasound) technology transfers an equal distribution of ultrasound energy into the subcutaneous tissue, getting the temperatures to 65-75°C. This heat causes fat reduction by shrinking stubborn fat cells that are difficult to burn off, even through strenuous exercises and weight-loss regimens. Although the temperature is high for the break down of fat, the top layer of the skin is not affected, so there is no burning or discomfort after the procedure.

The results from the first HIFU treatment is an immediate visible tightening and lifting effect. The treatment continues to work for up to several months, further stimulating your collagen production. Patients will see long-lasting lifting and tightening and a reduction of fat in the area for some time after the session. 

Our aesthetician can vary the intensity of the treatment and control the depth that the device delivers the energy. Ranging from 13mm-6mm, we can treat on both a superficial level and a much deeper level for varying results, depending on the individuals’ concerns.

High-intensity ultrasound can be used for the following treatment areas, to help lift, tighten, and contour the body:

  • Thighs
  • Stomach
  • Upper arms
  • Love handles
  • Beneath the buttocks
  • Elbows
  • Knees
  • Bra fat

What to expect from the treatment?

Average fat reduction treatment times range from 15 to 40 minutes. No downtime is needed post-treatment as you can return to work or attend a yoga class on the same day. Ultrasound gel will then be applied, and the treatment will start.

You will feel the heat and a mild tingling sensation as the device is moved over the skin. It can feel like a hot elastic band on your skin, and should only be minimally uncomfortable. Your aesthetician can go slowly and reduce the intensity if you feel any discomfort.

You will notice positive changes following the procedure, which will gradually enhance over 4-12 weeks, depending on your treated area. Some patients may experience slight redness and swelling on the treated areas ranging from a few hours up to a few weeks. There may be some temporary bruising and numbness on the areas treated, but this clears quickly.

Approximately three treatments are recommended to achieve the desired results. Up to 3 cm of fat can be removed.

How much does Non-Surgical Fat Reduction cost?

Large Area 3 Sessions – From £1,850

How safe is high-intensity ultrasound?

HIFU is very safe if treatments are carried out by highly trained aestheticians who have had 1:1 training with the manufacturers of the device. The equipment we use is the Ultraformer III, an FDA (Food & Drug Administration) medical-grade device.

In our opinion, this is the best in the industry offering the most painless and effective results. There is no downtime, no incisions, no scarring and no rest or recovery time needed. As the device is highly focused, it only treats the areas of concern.

Andy's waist contouring

As I hit my 40’s I noticed stubborn pockets of fat around my abdomen and flank area that would not clear, despite having a healthy diet and exercising.

My jeans felt tighter and I could no longer wear fitted T-shirts as I felt my belly popping out.

Andy underwent HIFU non-surgical fat reduction around his abdomen and love handle/flank area.

He had 3 sessions 4 weeks apart.

  • Slimmer waist
  • Reduction in lower abdominal fat
  • Improved skin quality

I’m really happy with my results. Being a guy I felt a little nervous and I wouldn’t normally consider these types of treatment, however, I really needed the extra help to slim my waist. The team made me feel really comfortable. I’m back to how I felt in my early 30’s. Thanks Look Lovely London for helping me shift that extra weight. And my jeans fit great again too!

Non-Surgical Fat Reduction FAQs

Non-surgical fat reduction is a minimally invasive treatment. High intensity focused ultrasound is used to selectively break down fat cells in specific areas in the body. This reduces the size of fat pockets without surgery or downtime.

We have carefully selected what we believe to be the most effective HIFU system on the market. Our non-surgical fat reduction device is one of the only FDA approved devices in the industry. It can penetrate high-density fatty tissue and targets the body’s subcutaneous fatty layers at three different depths. The device can slim areas, contour and remove stubborn fat.

Yes, nonsurgical fat reduction is highly effective in the right patient. There is a wide range of non-invasive alternatives to fat reduction that can give results however we believe the Ultraformer HIFU device offers the best available in the industry. For the best results, we recommend a healthy active lifestyle alongside treatment to aid the elimination of the waste from the body once the HIFU breaks down the fat cells.

We recommend three treatments every 4-weeks taking 12-weeks to get maximum results

Non-surgical fat reduction is safe, causing minimal pain or lasting side effects. The high-energy ultrasound delivers macro energy into subcutaneous fat to selectively remove fat cells.  This achieves localised destruction of fat at precise tissue depths, without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues. Therefore there is no burning of the skin or downtime as the energy focuses deeper in the fat layers.

There is no recovery time following treatment. You can have this treatment in your lunch hour. Some patients experience a mild bruised feeling for up to one-week post-treatment.
