Fat Reduction with Liposonix
Liposonix is a non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy (HIFU) to permanently destroy fat cells. Since the treatment is noninvasive, there is little to no downtime, so you can resume your regular activities right away.
Liposonix uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy. It is the same energy source as diagnostic ultrasound, but it is designed to very precisely target specific areas with high energy to destroy fat cells.
Typically a Liposonix treatment of the abdomen and flanks is completed in about one hour. This may vary depending on the treatment area and your specific needs. The fat is permanently destroyed in just a single treatment. Liposonix produces smooth results due to its unique, advanced delivery technology.
The treatment is ideal for active, healthy individuals who have at least one inch of fat to lose in their abdomen or flanks. It is non-invasive, so it is a great solution if you have stubborn fat but don’t want to have surgery.
While results vary, clinical studies on the abdomen and flanks have shown average waistline reduction was about one dress or pant size (about 1 inch), with some patients losing up to 2.5 inches. Most people see maximum results in 8 to 12 weeks, as this is how long it takes for the body to naturally metabolize the destroyed fat tissue.
Liposonix has 10 years of research and testing behind its development, and treatments have been available in Europe, Japan and Canada for several years. It has a well-defined safety profile during and after treatment with very good patient satisfaction.
