Currently available technologies for performing aesthetic body sculpting are either noninvasive but require multiple treatments to achieve relatively superficial effects or very effective but also invasive and sometimes associated with serious complications. A new, noninvasive alternative is to ablate adipose tissue using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). When focused within subcutaneous adipose tissue, HIFU quickly raises the local temperature, resulting in instantaneous cell death via… CONTINUE READING
