Deep Slim is a treatment based on Focusing High Intensity Ultrasound (HIFU). It is a novel technique that completely eliminates the pain most harmful to health and the one that most favors overweight, improving the silhouette and body composition.. The Dra. Hernandez, renowned specialist in Nutrition and Dietetics and director of the Nutrition and Anti-Aging and Body Aesthetic Medicine service of the Tufet Clinic, explains its benefits.


It has been recently verified in various scientific studies that to fight against obesity and overweight it is important to eliminate white fat, not brown or brown fat. The latter, unlike white, has the ability to burn lipids and maintain body temperature.

There is a new high precision integral remodeling technique that acts on this white fat in a totally controlled way, and without side effects for the rest of tissues. This technique is performed using a device called Deep Slim by Medikalight that emits High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). This technique is capable of selectively destroying fat cells concentrated in the abdomen, arms and / or knees, but leaving tissues such as skin, blood vessels and nerves intact.. The novelty that Deep Slim brings, then, is that it is a non-invasive and painless technique that respects fat cells of high biological value (brown or brown fat) and improves the body composition of the body and the health of the person.

Deep Slim helps eliminate localized white fat


How fat is generated and how Deep Slim helps in its elimination

Fat performs important functions, both metabolic and endocrine. It is the brown fat, in fact, that is activated by the cold, generating heat instead of only being stored. It is when the percentage of white fat increases over brown fat when the body has more difficulty losing weight. In fact, people with obesity lose the ability to activate brown fat with cold, transform white fat into brown and lose weight with this process.

Deep Slim by Medikalight allows to control the level of white fat percentage of the body and selectively destroy fat cells of lower biological value , while maintaining, in turn, the beneficial function of fatty tissue. The waves of ultrasonic energy converge so that Deep Slim only targets the target fat cells, white fat adipocytes more sensitive to high temperatures and the effects of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound .

These high intensity ultrasound act creating an implosion of micro-bubbles whose energy breaks the uniocular globules of lower quality fat. The fact that ultrasound is emitted in the form of an inverted pyramid creates small lesions in the adipose tissue at different depths in a very controlled way thanks to the selective emission frequency and the precise Tracking System. The remains of destroyed cells are then processed naturally and metabolically by the body.


Reduce up to 2.5cm in a single session: how Deep Slim is applied

The HIFU technology of Deep Slim by Medikalight has been endorsed by several clinical studies. With its application can be reduced up to 2.5cm in a single session. The results will be visible after one month of the session, and increase after the third month.

The technique is applied by a thin layer of ultrasound gel in the area to be treated. Then sweeps are made by the specialist in Nutrition and Dietetics , and Body Aesthetic Medicine. These sweeps act at three levels of depth in the skin, getting the eliminated fat does not reappear. It is a process that lasts between 30 and 45 minutes, although both this aspect and the intensity of the ultrasound will always depend on the needs of the patient.

It is important to note that it is a totally painless treatment that does not produce bruising or swelling in the patient. Its application does not require anesthesia or sedatives either.
