Liposonix® is a proven, unique and effective aesthetic device built on ultrasound technology to deliver custom contouring fat reduction. The ultrasound energy is focused in the subcutaneous fat layer beneath the skin, eliminating unwanted fat cells around the waist. The result is slimming and smoothing with an average of 1 inch (2.5 cm) circumferential waistline reduction, which typically means one dress or pant size. This ground breaking fat reduction treatment eliminates fat, giving a slimmer, trimmer look.
How does the Liposonix treatment work?
High-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the targeted fat. Skin is not damaged as targeted fat beneath the skin is destroyed by the ultrasound energy. The body naturally removes the destroyed fat from the treatment area, which may leave you with a thinner, more contoured figure.
Is the treated fat permanently removed?
As the treatment destroys targeted fat, destroyed fat cells are no longer available to store fat and are removed over a period of 8 to 12 weeks through the body's natural healing process.
What does a Liposonix treatment feel like?
During treatment, patients may experience discomfort, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth. Patients have described different levels of discomfort depending on the treatment area, fluence level selected and the number of sites treated.
What parts of the body does the Liposonix procedure treat?
Liposonix can treat targeted areas on the abdomen, flanks, hips, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, back and flabby arms.
When can I see results and how long do they last?
Most people see maximum results in 8 to 12 weeks. This is how long it takes for the body to naturally metabolize the destroyed fat tissue. The targeted cells are permanently destroyed, but surrounding fat cells can grow so the best way to maintain your results is to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
What are the possible side effects and unwanted risks?
The most common post-treatment side effects include mild discomfort (pain), bruising, redness, or swelling.
