Liposonix is an innovative non-surgical method for permanently reducing unwanted fat. This FDA-approved fat removal system uses ultrasound energy to gently melt away excess fat cells.
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
This is a great non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction for those seeking a modest fat reduction in problem areas.
Liposonix is ideal for treating stubborn pockets or bulges of fat that have proven unresponsive to diet and exercise, including areas like the abdomen, love handles, waist, upper arms, back, inner and outer thighs, and buttocks.
However, just about any area of the body can be successfully treated.
Liposonix is effective on both men and women. It is, however, best reserved for those of average weight who are seeking a modest fat reduction. Patients who are looking for more dramatic or significant fat removal may be better candidates for traditional surgical liposuction.
The Liposonix Process
Liposonix is an outpatient procedure performed in the office setting. During treatment, the Liposonix treatment head is applied to the skin on the treatment area where it delivers focused ultrasound energy that travels harmlessly through the skin’s surface. Deep beneath the skin, this energy targets unwanted fat cells, permanently dissolving and destroying them. The dissolved fat is then absorbed through the body’s natural metabolic process over the course of several weeks.
Treatment is well tolerated with little discomfort or pain.
Most patients describe experiencing a tingling, prickling or warm sensation.
Patients may experience some side effects such as skin pinkness, swelling, mild bruising or tenderness after treatment. These side effects are generally mild and fade within a few hours to a few days. Otherwise, there is no downtime and work and other normal activities can be resumed immediately afterward. It takes about two months before the improved body contours can be truly appreciated, and it’s been shown that patients experience an average one-inch reduction in the waist after a single treatment. An additional treatment can be performed after two months if patients choose.
