|The Newlife™ series treatment is a nonsurgical, non-invasive fat reduction procedure
that uses high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to permanently
destroy targeted subcutaneous adipose tissue in the abdomen, flanks,
hips and thighs. A single treatment may result in an average waist
circumference reduction of 1 to 2 inches or about one dress or pant
size in 1 treatment. Individual results may vary.|
How does the Newlife™ Series treatment work to destroy fat?
The Newlife™ system focuses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy at a precise depth (1.3 cm) within the targeted adipose tissue in the abdomen and flanks, without harming the skin or surrounding tissues and organs. This causes thermal coagulation of adipose tissue within the focal zone of the ultrasound beam. The destroyed tissue and released triglycerides are engulfed and removed by macrophages that are drawn to the treated area by chemotactic signals. The lipid-laden macrophages then move through the lymphatic system to the liver, where the lipids are processed by the body’s normal biochemical pathways. Once processed by the liver, the energy from the lipids may be used by the body directly or, as with any fat, may be stored by the body in adipose tissue if the energy is not required immediately (We strongly urge our clients to implement some sort of workout regimen within 4 hours of treatment) . Adipocytes that are destroyed in the treated area are no longer available to store fat. The damaged tissue in the treated area is resorbed over a period of approximately 8 to 12 weeks, which can yield an aesthetic body-contouring effect.
Is the Newlife™ treatment safe?
The Newlife™ treatment has a well-defined safety profile for patients who meet the treatment criteria. During treatment, patients may experience discomfort, echo or noise in ears, tingling, or warmth. The most common post-treatment side effects include discomfort, ecchymosis, erythema, and edema, which are generally described (or rated) as mild. It must not be used on pregnant women, or women who may be pregnant , or generally on the following patients: cardio paths patient with vascular diseases, patients with pacemakers, patients with thrombosis and /or thrombophlebitis, patients being treated with anticoagulants, patients who have undergone a transplant, carriers of large metal prostheses. So, if the patients has a titanium implant or the problems of liver or kidney, we do not recommend the treatment.
Is the treated fat permanently removed?
The Newlife™ treatment destroys targeted fat in the treatment areas of the abdomen and flanks. The adipocytes that are destroyed in the treated areas are no longer available to store fat, and are permanently removed over a period of 6 to 10 weeks through the body's natural healing process.
Is the treatment safe on all skin types?
Differences in the operation or effect of the Newlife system due to differences in skin type have not been observed. Ultrasound energy in the frequency range used by the Newlife system is not directly affected by melanin in the skin. All skin types have not been comprehensively tested.
Can the Newlife system be used on patients with visible scars?
It is not recommended to treat directly on top of scar tissue, as the scar tissue may interfere with the intended ultrasound delivery and focal point in the subcutaneous adipose tissue. Striae (stretch marks) are permissible to treat.
What are the benefits of using heat when treating subcutaneous adipose tissue?
By utilizing heat, the Newlife treatment creates a dual tissue response. The controlled thermal effect results in the destruction of targeted fat as well as contraction of collagen in the treatment area. (The benefit of collagen denaturization cannot be achieved with cry lipolysisor low intensity ultrasound.) The body then naturally continues the processes and permanently removes the destroyed fat tissue over a period of 8 to 12 weeks, which may leave patients with a slimmer, more contoured waistline.
What body parts can be treated?
The Newlifesystem is indicated for use in destroying subcutaneous adipose tissue just beneath the skin in the abdomen and flanks. In Canada it is indicated for treatment of abdomen, flanks, hips and thighs. In the EU it is indicated for the trunk and lower extremities excluding the lower leg (i.e., abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs and buttocks.
How long does a treatment take?
Generally, the abdomen and flanks can be treated in about one hour ( 20 MINS per area ) . Office visit time may vary depending on a variety of factors including: treatment area, level selected, and number of treatment sites.
When will patients see the full result of treatment?
Results are typically seen in 6-10 weeks after treatment. This is the time it takes for the body to naturally process the destroyed fat tissue.

Why are using Ultrasound Gel/ Lotion and maintaining contact of the treatment head to the skin important?
In order for the ultrasound energy to be transmitted into the body there can be no air or gas in the treatment path. Any air in the ultrasound beam will result in a reflection of the ultrasound energy back towards the transducer. Ultrasound gel, lotion or essence oil applied to the skin acts to remove the air between the treatment head and the patient’s skin, allowing for transmission of the ultrasound energy into the body.
