Ultrasound therapy is a noninvasive rejuvenation treatment based on producing controlled damage. This controlled damage triggers tissue remodeling and/or tightening, and that, in turn, leads to cosmetic improvement. The means to achieve such controlled damage include various forms of directed energy such as lasers, plasma, radiofrequency and others. Ultrasound fat reduction is used for this purpose as well.
How Are We Using Ultrasound for Fat & Cellulite Reduction?
Ultrasound is not new, however, we are currently studying ultrasound in combination with other therapies to improve skin quality and tone. Additionally, we are studying ultrasound therapy in combination with bio stimulation for fat reduction.
Ultrasound can be calibrated to target subcutaneous fat tissue rather than the skin. One approach is to use the settings that cause fat cells in the target area to burst. The fat is thus released and metabolized by the body. Another mode of treatment is used for cellulite, in which case the goal is not so much to eliminate the fat cells but to trigger the remodeling if the connective structures within the fatty tissue, restoring it to a healthier, more regular state.
