High-intensity ultrasound is used to destroy the middle and deep layers of fat. A conductive lubricant is applied, followed by pulsed, uniform, and multi-pass applications of ultrasound energy to destroy fat cells. Even distribution of fat shrinkage subsequently takes place over the next few months.

Generally, one package consists of one ultrasound session.

The treatment takes about two hours in an outpatient clinic setting.

Oral and/or inhalational anesthesia may be used.

1. 20% ~30% of fat shrinkage
