Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF ADIPOSE TISSUE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDES DE DESTRUCTION DU TISSU ADIPEUX
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and apparatus are described for modifying unwanted tissue for cosmetic reasons. The methods provide a non-invasive manner to perform body contouring by destroying adipose tissue while simultaneously causing collagen contraction in a single procedure so that as destroyed tissue is removed from a treatment volume, the volume shrinks gradually to maintain the skin tone of the treatment area.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil permettant de modifier un tissu non désiré pour des raisons cosmétiques. Les procédés mettent en place une manière non invasive d'effectuer un contour du corps par destruction du tissu adipeux entraînant simultanément une contraction de collagène en une procédure unique, de manière que le tissu détruit soit retiré d'un volume de traitement, le volume diminuant graduellement de manière à conserver la carnation de la zone de traitement.
