Stemming from the success of our HIFU Face and Neck Treatment, Body HIFU is the latest technology in targeted fat removal and body sculpting. Launched in 2017, the treatment is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction and offers visible outstanding results without having to go under the knife. For people who don’t want to face the risks of liposuction or other invasive surgeries to target their unwanted fat then Body HIFU can be an incredible, non-surgical alternative.

In a survey carried out in 2015 by YouGov, it was revealed that more than a third of people in the UK are unhappy with their body weight and image. With many people finding that they pile excess fat around their belly when they gain weight, it’s no surprise that belly fat is one of the most problematic areas for many people and can cause feelings of low self-esteem and self-consciousness. With the aspiration to feel and look good in and out of our clothes, having a flatter belly is really desirable for most people and it can be frustrating that this is the most difficult area to reduce. Belly fat is the layer of subcutaneous fat that sits around our midriff and may even be referred to unflatteringly as a ‘muffin top’. For some people, even with a healthy change in diet and increased exercise, it can still be incredibly difficult to target this stubborn belly fat when trying to lose weight and achieve a flatter tummy.

Body HIFU uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound to penetrate through the skin layers to reach the unwanted belly fat tissue without harming the skin or the surrounding tissues. The treatment delivers a 24 line matrix of focused energy (at a depth of 1.3cm) the controlled thermal effect results in the destruction of targeted fat as all as a contraction of collagen in the treatment area allowing the skin to tighten. Belly fat can be effectively reduced as well as other problem areas such as the arms and thighs which can also be very difficult areas to lose weight from naturally.


Other Fat Reduction Treatments may use low intensity focused ultrasound and, as a result of this, may require multiple treatments. HIFU is unique as the intensity of the energy used means that it only requires one treatment to see instant results. In one go, you can non-invasively target and destroy your subcutaneous fat to have an instantly tighter, more toned body.

Body HIFU delivers exceptional results without the risk of surgery. After just one treatment clients, on average, see a waistline reduction of 1 inch (2.5cm) which typically means one dress size.

What is Body HIFU?

Body HIFU uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound energy. This energy penetrates through the skins’ layers and into the targeted fat tissue without harming the skin or surrounding tissues. Other fat reduction treatments that use low-intensity ultrasound require multiple treatments however HIFU non-invasively destroys targeted subcutaneous fat and delivers outstanding results after a single 1-hour treatment. The average waistline reduction after just one treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) which typically means one dress size.

How does Body HIFU feel?

Body HIFU is a non-invasive treatment but may cause the client slight discomfort. You may feel a slight pain, warmth or heat, as the Body HIFU is applied. Any discomfort is usually very brief, the level of discomfort usually depends on the area being treated, the clients’ own sensitivity, and also the settings that are being used, (though these can be altered to suit the client’s needs).

Is HIFU safe?

Body HIFU is completely safe. The procedure is performed worldwide and Ultrasound Energy is used in a wide range of medical procedures. It is a much safer alternative to very invasive liposuction surgery and it means you have none of the risks associated with going under general anesthetic.

What areas of the body can be treated with HIFU?

  • Stomach
  • Arms
  • Thighs

How long does HIFU treatment take?

The procedure as a whole lasts between 45-90 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.

What can I expect when I have my treatment?

There will be an initial consultation with a Skin n Tonic Aesthetics Practitioner to discuss your concerns and goals. During the treatment, a handheld device is placed over the selected treatment area. This device delivers High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound to the skin. The procedure is not painful though some clients may experience slight discomfort or a prickling sensation over sensitive areas.

What results can I expect?

Body HIFU delivers exceptional results without the risk of surgery. After just one treatment clients on average see a waistline reduction of 1 inch (2.5cm) which typically means one dress size. You will notice a tighter, more toned appearance to the skin, and body fat will be immediately reduced for instant results.

What happens after HIFU treatment?

Once the treatment is over clients may experience some redness or tingling, however, most are able to return to their day-to-day activities immediately with little to no downtime required (another huge difference to invasive surgery which can have a much longer recovery time).

The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive facial treatments. SMAS is the same layer which is tightening during conventional facelift surgery. Unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no time off work.
