1. Indiba

Indiba Deep Beauty Proionic Body Care System uses a radio-frequency wave to “burn fats”. A massage head that emits the radio-frequency energy is rolled over the midriff with a massaging action. This raises the temperature of the internal tissues, breaks up fat cells, speeds up the metabolism and drains out toxins. It works best on localised areas of fat and has shown impressive results on the tummy area.

2. CoolSculpt

CoolSculpt is a non invasive treatment that utilises a targeted cooling process to eliminate fat cells, called cryolipolysis. During the procedure, the applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling conditions that have been proven to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of the body. When fat cells are exposed to precise cooling, they trigger a process of natural removal that gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer.

3. Vaser

The Vaser Shape therapy utilises a combination of ultrasound therapy and zonal massage. Low frequency ultrasound energy is used to treat the fatty tissue layer in a non-invasive manner, heating and stimulating the fat cells, causing a “cavitational effect” to release their contents into the lymphatic system. The zonal massage then stimulates the lymphatic system to drain away excess lipids and also increases local blood circulation. Vaser Shape is also effective for skin tightening, giving the treatment area a smoother appearance and eliminating cellulite.

4.  Liposonix

Liposonix uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to non-invasively destroy targeted subcutaneous fat. Ultrasound energy can be used to penetrate through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissues. The disrupted fat cells are metabolised by the liver and excreted out of the body over a few weeks.

5. Thermage for body

Thermage works by using radiofrequency energy to non-invasively heat the deep collagen fibres in the skin and underlying tissue. This deep uniform heating action causes the deep structures in the skin and underlying tissue to immediately tighten. Over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced to further tighten lax and saggy skin and improve the appearance of cellulite.

6. Vanquish

 Vanquish uses a plate array to emit selective radiofrequency energy over a large body area to reduce fat. It goes beyond just removing fat from the fat cells. It actually eliminates the fat cells. It focuses energy by choosing the correct radiofrequency specifically for the impedance of fat. Fat has different absorption properties due to its diminished water content and this device takes advantage of this to selectively heat the fat without affecting the skin, surrounding tissues and internal organs.
