Abstract

Obesity and struggle with its consequences, also aesthetic type resulted in the growing development of methods of body shaping, contouring shapes, increasing skin firmness and skin tightening. The reason is the increasing in recent years, public demand, especially in developed countries. Development of aesthetic dermatology is driven by the search for therapeutic options with minimal invasiveness, enabling the reduction of excess body fat, to obtain a slim figure and reduce the laxity of the skin without the need for surgery. Current high frequency sound wave is an alternative method of treatment for patients with less severe defects. The continuous development of new technologies in the future will improve treatments for increasing the effectiveness and consistency of the results, while maintaining a favorable profile of the associated side effects.

AIM:

The aim of the study was to evaluate the behavior of the selected parameters of fat tissue in patients undergoing fat reduction BTL Exilis device.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

The study included a 50-member group of women who are patients of the Specialist Clinic Al-Med in Kolobrzeg. Test was performed twice blood biochemical parameters before the first day of treatment and ten days after the fourth treatment.

RESULTS:

The results showed no statistical significance of the blood biochemical parameters in all subjects such as total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and the activity of enzymes AST and ALT.

CONCLUSIONS:

No changes in biochemical parameters of lipid organism in the group of patients indicate the safety of therapy carried out by means of a device emitting high-frequency power and ultrasound. The treatment was evaluated by respondents as effective.
