M.E.L.T. RF and Ultrasound Device

Our manufacturer is committed to a guarantee of patient health and well being and fully complies with EU Directives on the quality control and safety of electro medical devices.

The M.E.L.T RF and Ultrasound Device machine received the CE Mark in 2008 classed as a 2b equipment.

The letters CE are the abbreviation of French phrase «Conformité Européene» which literally means «European Conformity». CE Marking on a product is a manufacturer’s declaration that the product complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation.

The M.E.L.T machine is proven to be safe and clinically effective in an independently controlled multi-center trial which established :

  • Histological and clinical evidence of disrupted adipose tissue with no damage to neighboring blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue.
  • The majority of patients for varying indications report no pain or discomfort during or following treatment sessions.
  • Urine and blood samples confirm that the levels of fat expelled from the body after a M.E.L.T session falls within safe limits.
  • No serious treatment-related adverse effects have been reported.

INFRA RED (IR) energy heats the deep subcutaneous tissue, thereby triggering the release of lipids (lipolysis). The IR simultaneously increases blood circulation and lymphatic drainage and reduces swelling in the interstitial dermis.


ULTRA SOUND facilitates deeper penetration and more sustained heat. The introduction of ultra sound waves in fatty (or adipose) tissue increases the lipolysis previously triggered by infrared and generates greater fat release. The M.E.L.T technology focuses the ultrasound frequencies to pinpoint fat cells which allows for more targeted slimming and body sculpting in problem areas.


RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) in turn heats the tissue protein in a controlled manner, thereby tightening existing collagen fibers and increasing the production of néocollagène in the dermis. The RF increases the heat previously generated by the application of infrared and ultrasound, to further stimulate the release of fats, reduce cellulite and tighten the skin.

The pulsed waves of these energy types converge in a confined focal volume causing a non-thermal, mechanical destruction of fat cells. The fat cells are emulsified by the ultrasound frequencies, leaving everything else in the body, nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues, intact. The destroyed fat cells are then dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then moved through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver where they are metabolized and excreted by the body.

In 2006, an independent multiple treatment clinical trial, “Body Contouring by Non-Invasive Focused Ultrasound”, included 30 patients that underwent 3 treatments at 30 day intervals. Results showed 100% response rate with no adverse effects on patients following the 3 treatments. The study also demonstrated a mean fat thickness reduction of 2.28 cm and a mean circumference reduction of 3.95 cm. The results of the study were published in the April 2007 issue of Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, the journal for the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery.
