Beauty Through Energy – The Evolving Role of Microfocused Ultrasound
Sabrina Fabi, MD
Julius Few, MD
Nonsurgical skin tightening and body contouring is growing in popularity due to reduced downtime and improved outcomes. Technology continues to improve and there are many options for the aesthetic practitioner including microfocused ultrasound, RF, cryolipolysis and high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology. Microfocused ultrasound (MFU) has demonstrated impressive results in skin tightening/body contouring. This option requires understanding of the specific technology, proven treatment protocols and proper patient selection. The investment for any of these technologies in the aesthetic practice is substantial and it behooves the clinician to be fully educated to make appropriate decisions. In this CME-certified course, Dr. Sabrina Fabi and Dr. Julius Few review MFU technology and how they have effectively incorporated it into their practices.
