Getting Ready For Swimsuit Season

By | Blog, Liposonix | No Comments

It’s springtime – the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and the racks at your favorite department store are full of this summer’s latest swimsuit fashions. Love it or hate it, you’ll have to try them on eventually. If the dressing room mirror is not your BFF, you can get swimsuit ready in no time with Liposonix.

Because each human body stores fat in its own unique ways, this treatment is completely customizable for tailor made results. Liposonix uses high intensity focused ultrasound technology to penetrate beneath your skin’s layers and target the specific fat tissue you wish to destroy without harming any of the surrounding tissue. Results are uniform and predictable, and a single treatment usually results in the loss of about one inch around the waistline. It’s the perfect solution for individuals who have plateaued despite a healthy diet and exercise lifestyle.

Probably the best part about the Liposonix fat loss treatment is that it is completely non-invasive. This means that you’ll have virtually no downtime following treatment and can immediately resume your normal activities. Each session requires about an hour to complete, and while many clients find that a single treatment is sufficient, others choose to continue on with additional treatments focusing on other areas. During the procedure you may experience sensations of warmth or coldness in the area, or perhaps a tingling feeling. You may also experience some discomfort or redness at the site immediately following the procedure, but generally the aftereffects are minimal for most patients. Individual results do vary somewhat but you can expect to see the final results within 8 to 12 weeks following your treatment.

Why Liposonix?

By | Blog, Liposonix | No Comments

Liposonix is a non-invasive, non-surgical fat removal procedure that is perfect for individuals who are close to their ideal shape, but who find diet and exercise aren’t helping them shed those final inches. Liposonix procedures have been successfully performed in Canada and Europe, as well as in the United States, for several years. Why do many individuals turn to Liposonix to treat the stubborn fat deposits keeping them from reaching their appearance goals?

It’s safe.

Liposonix is FDA-approved to remove stubborn fat on the love handles and abdomen. It’s important to note here that other areas of the body have not been specifically approved by the FDA for Liposonix treatment, but they also have not been purposely excluded from FDA approval. In fact, many patients undergo so-called “off label” Liposonix treatment for areas of the body other than the abdomen safely, and are rewarded with similarly great results.

Because Liposonix is a non-surgical procedure, the risk of post-surgical infection and health complications both during and post-surgery are completely eliminated.

In addition, because Liposonix uses Ultrasound technology, only the intended tissues will be targeted with the ultrasound energy, meaning that none of the other tissues in the area will be harmed during this procedure. Only the targeted fat tissue will be affected by the treatment.

Liposonix Treatment

It’s accurate.

Liposonix’s ultrasound technology is unique in that it utilizes focused high-intensity ultrasound energy to remove the unwanted fat tissue. This guarantees that the procedure will directly target the precise area and tissues you are looking to treat, and will therefore provide you with the results you expected.

It’s quick and easy.

The Liposonix procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes, and is non-surgical in nature. The great thing about this is that there’s no recovery time; the majority of patients able to return to normal daily activity immediately following the procedure.

Final results can be seen between 8 and 12 weeks following the procedure.

It can be used to treat any trouble area.

Liposonix can be used to remove stubborn fat all over the body. Regardless of where your body is holding those remaining few inches that are holding you back from reaching your ideal shape, Liposonix can prove to be an effective treatment.

It targets fat tissue on areas including the stomach, flank (or love handles), thighs, arms, back, and buttocks.

It only takes once, in most cases.

The majority of patients who undergo Liposonix only require a single treatment in order to reach their appearance goals.

Patients who have more stubborn fat on other areas of the body can choose to undergo a second treatment on a different area, usually after a two-month waiting period.

It offers individualized treatment customization.

Unlike similar surgical procedures such as liposuction, which can be limited in their range of treatment areas, Liposonix allows for greater individual customization of treatment. Liposonix practitioners are aware that one treatment approach may not be right for all; that’s why patients can be confident that they will receive a personal consultation prior to undergoing a Liposonix procedure in order to receive the exact procedure and results that are right for them and their body.

Liposonix’s individualized treatment customization, nearly unlimited range of potential areas for treatment, and its highly accessible, in-and-out nature make it the most desirable treatment option for a quick removal of the stubborn fat that is preventing you from reaching your appearance goals.
