The Liposonix is a safe non-surgical treatment which utilizes high-intensity focused ultrasound to treat and eliminate stubborn fat. It is perfect for people close to their ideal size and shape – but need help where diet and exercise just won’t work.
How does Liposonix work?
Using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), it permanently destroys subcutaneous adipose tissue. The Liposonix system offers precisely focused delivery of energy that does not harm surrounding skin, tissue, or organs.
When will I see results?
Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks (which is the time needed for the body to naturally process the treated fat). Best results have been seen after 6 months.
Liposonix is not liposuction or surgery, is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and exercise and is not a way to lose weight. But it is a quick, easy way to help you slim that last inch and hit your personal shape goals.
What can I expect to feel during the procedure?
Your doctor moves the head of the Liposonix system around the area to be treated, and treats for 30-60 minutes.
Pain is generally experienced over certain sensitive areas, but pain medication is usually prescribed by the administering doctor before the treatment starts. During treatment, you may feel a cold, spiking and hot sensation.
How long is a typical Liponsonix treatment?
Generally one hour, possibly longer depending on the size of the area.
What can I expect after the procedure?
Over the next 8 to 24 weeks, your body naturally processes and permanently removes the destroyed fat tissue.
With less fat, your body is naturally slimmer, with a sleeker, more contoured waistline.
After treatment, there may be some discomfort (pain), bruising, redness, and swelling, which are generally described as mild.
How is Liposonix different?
Invasive fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction, typically carry certain surgical risks and are associated with significant post-treatment recovery downtime. Even newer, minimally-invasive techniques are still surgical procedures. Unlike these types of surgical fat reduction procedures, the Liposonix treatment is non-invasive and patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
With many other non-invasive fat reduction technologies, such as radiofrequency and lasers, energy is highly absorbed or scattered near the skin surface, thereby limiting penetration into subcutaneous fat tissue and delivering only temporary results. Ultrasound energy, on the other hand, can be used to penetrate through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissues. Other ultrasound body contouring technologies often use low-intensity, low-frequency, or unfocused energy which can require multiple treatments and lead to unpredictable results. The Liposonix system uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to permanently destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver uniform, predictable results after a single one-hour treatment.
How can a Liponsonix treatment help me?
If you’re close to your ideal shape, but need a little help getting there, Liposonix may be just the right treatment for you. Liposonix treatments use non-invasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound to permanently get rid of targeted fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) without surgery. The average waistline reduction after just one treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) – which typically means one dress or pant size.
