HOW IS LIPOSONIX DIFFERENT?
Non-Surgical – Non-Invasive
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.
Patients come in all shapes and sizes, and so does their fat. Other non-invasive body contouring devices can be limited in their ability to treat certain areas of fat and may require several hours and/or multiple treatment sessions to adequately address problem areas. The Liposonix system is highly versatile, allowing control over precisely how and where energy is delivered, for a truly customized treatment in a single one-hour session.
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.
What Can Liposonix Do For You?
If you’re close to your ideal shape, but need a little help getting there, Liposonix may be 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 a single one-hour treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) – which typically means one dress or pant size.
Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks (which is the time needed for the body to naturally process the treated fat). 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 is the Liposonix treatment?
The Liposonix treatment uses non-invasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound to get rid of fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) without surgery. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks.
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 permanently 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 waistline.
How is the Liposonix treatment different from other fat reduction products/procedures?
Unlike some other fat reduction procedures that often require multiple treatments to see results, with the Liposonix treatment, you can reduce your waistline by an average of 1 inch (2.5 cm), or about one dress or pant size, with a single one-hour treatment. Office visit time and individual results may vary. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks.
How long does a treatment take?
A Liposonix treatment of the abdomen and love handles is completed in about one hour. Office visit time may vary. Your healthcare professional can give you a better estimate after evaluating you.
How will my doctor know if the Liposonix treatment is right for me?
Your doctor will decide if the Liposonix treatment is right for you based on an evaluation of a number of factors, including the amount of fat in the area to be treated and your overall health.
