How Liposonix Works?

With many other non-invasive fat reduction technologies, energy is highly absorbed or scattered near the skin surface, therefore only producing temporary results. With Ultrasound, the energy can be penetrated through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without harming the skin or surrounding tissue. The Liposonix system uses high intensity focused ultrasound energy to permanently destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver uniform, predictable results after one, single hour treatment. Results are typically seen in 8-12 weeks. This is NOT a liposuction or surgery, or a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and is NOT a way to lose weight. It is a quick and easy way to help you slim that last inch to hit your personal shape goals.

Who is Liposonix for?

  • Who are in good general health
  • Who are close to their ideal shape or weight, and who are looking for assistance in shedding those final few inches or pounds
  • Who are unable to shed those final inches or pounds with proper diet and exercise
  • Who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or less
  • Who are able to pinch the area of tissue they are looking to treat between their thumb and finger, measuring one inch at the minimum
  • Who have realistic expectations and goals for the procedure
  • Who don’t have time to undergo a long post-surgical recovery

What is Liposonix like?

The whole Liposonix procedure takes one hour to complete, and patients are able to return to normal activity immediately afterwards. Many patients find that a one-time treatment is sufficient to achieve their desired results. Other patients find that the treatment was so effective for their abdomen, they decide they would like to receive the same treatment for their inner thighs.

During the procedure, it is normal to experience feelings of coldness, warmth, tingling, prickling, or discomfort. However, most of the patients describe these sensations as mild.

What is the recovery process of Liposonix like?

Because Liposonix is a non-surgical treatment technique, there is no down-time following the procedure. Patients are able to return to normal activity immediately, and continue the healing and fat removal processes without the typical care and consideration that comes with a recovery period.

Post-procedure you can expect to have some discomfort or pain, swelling and bruising of the treatment site, and reddening of the skin. Similar to the sensations experienced during the procedure, patients often describe these symptoms as mild.

Depending upon the individual, the final results can be seen 8 to 12 weeks following the procedure.
