Objective: This study was conducted to ascertain the efficiency of combination therapy of High Focal Ultrasounds HFU with Cold Laser 635 nm on adipose tissue (cellulite and fat) located on belly, hips and legs.
Group of selected patients: 50 patients were of different age groups ranging from 25 to 55 years, and five of them were men. Their Body Mass Index (BMI) values ranged from 17.9 to 32.5. They went through four to six sessions depending on their availability. Some even chose the ultrasound-laser combination and only laser within 72 hours and then again the two-phase session. And some only underwent ultrasound + laser once a week for reasons of agenda. The study was conducted from January to end of February 2010.
Results: The sonography showed that already after the second session “large fat bulges were ripped open”, as well as septa between them, and there appeared a linear layout in which the cells were generally smaller and organised in lines, while upon the first examination the layout was very chaotic.
Conclusion: Combination of action of HIFU on fat cells, with biostimulation by Laser 635 nm reduces cellulite tissue thickness. The linear layout of the cells improved the orange skin appearance on the dermis.
