Ultrasound in fat reduction uses ultrasonic waves to liquefy fats in a specific region. Typically, two types of treatment. An internal (ultrasound-assisted liposuction) and an external type which is an ultrasound-assisted fat reduction. The external method is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses sonic waves to break down fat in the body. Using a paddle-like instrument to emit ultrasonic vibrations outside the body and through the skin, fat is broken down and eliminated.
However, the vibrations used can potentially disrupt a patient’s nervous system resulting in a loss of sensation. External ultrasonic waves can also result in bruising and skin necrosis and best to consult a trained and certified doctor for the best suitable treatment.
