Removing fat in different ways


Excess fat. Many people want to get rid of it. It can be a tiring and time-consuming process to burn fat. A healthy lifestyle and exercise will certainly help. There are also treatments that stimulate the breakdown of fat and thus speed up the process. We discuss them below.


HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. The treatment works on the basis of a bundle of intense ultrasound waves. These can pass through the skin up to the hypodermis to destroy the fat here.

At Skincenters, we use the UTIMIS HIFU from Korust medical. This device is designed to greatly reduce the risk of superficial burns and pain. The high frequency only affects the fat cells so you don't have to worry about damaging other elements of your skin. The fat cells reach a temperature of at least 57°C, which allows them to break down naturally and be disposed of by the body.

This treatment is suitable for treating small problem areas (arms, hips and stomach). It is absolutely not a weight loss solution.

Under no circumstances is a treatment at Skincenters a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. It remains important to watch your diet, drink enough and exercise regularly, even after the treatment.


Would you like to get rid of small or large rolls of fat quickly? Then you might consider cryolipolysis. Unlike liposuction, there are no needles, scalpels or scars involved. It is the ideal treatment for large areas such as the thighs, buttocks, love handles or stomach.

For one hour, we place an applicator on the area to be treated. It is possible to treat two areas simultaneously. The treatment causes the fat cells to cool down considerably until they crystallise. This process is known as 'apoptosis'. After this, the body disposes of the broken down fat cells.

With this treatment, you can be sure of quick and visible results. A one-hour session already results in a fat loss of 20 to 25% in the treated area.

It is very important that you maintain a healthy lifestyle even after the treatment. This not only promotes the removal of the broken-down fat cells, but also ensures a longer lasting result from the cryolipolysis.
