This non-surgical liposuction technique is popular for localized small area. Patient can see result in few months after initial inflammatory reaction.Wide area requires multiple sessions. Cool sculpting is one of the famous brands of cry lipolysis technology.
A skin transducer emits high intensity Ultrasonic waves. They concentrate and focus 4mm to 15 mm below the skin. Release of energy will rupture the fat cells. The transducer is then advanced further to destroy fat cells layer by layer.
Ulthera is Well known example of HIFU technology.
High frequency current is passed through transducer. It is available as no polar, bipolar or tripolar. Optimum levels of radiofrequency are targeted at epidermis layer. As a result, heat is produces and the adipose layer releases fatty acids into the blood stream. It also improves collagen production for skin tightening.
Example The rm age is well known brand working on radio frequency principle.
Mechnism: The i-lipo emits low levels of laser energy, the fat cell membranes are disrupted releasing intra-cellular fat. This mechanism is the instant breakdown of the fat cells (also referred to as lypolysis).

Example is Zerona lipolysis
Mechanism of Action:
High intensity ultrasound waves cause disruption of the fat cells in the subcutaneous tissue and the broken down fat is then excreted through the lymphatic system and out of the body.

Cellulite is created when fibrous tissues under the skin stiffen, pulling down on the skin. Surrounding fat cells enlarge, pushing up on the skin. This push-pull effect is what creates the irregular or so-called “cottage cheese” appearance of cellulite.
Cellulaze is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure that is done in one session and takes approximately 2-3 hours according to these simple steps:
Small eloquent of lipolytic solution is injected in subdermal level. Phosphatidylcholine (PPC) causes the fat cellular walls to dissolve and enables processing of body fat through natural metabolic functions.
One can see result after initial inflammatory reaction. One can inject very limited amount of injection in one sitting. Injection site may be pain full for time being.
