Measurable results were seen after one treatment using a high-intensity focused ultrasound device to reduce fat around the bra line on women's backs, researchers say. The best results were seen after eight to 12 weeks, and the best candidates for the treatment have a body mass index lower than 30 with about 2.5 centimeters of isolated fat and no wounds in the target area. The device is already FDA-approved for treating abdominal fat.
