Liposonix is a non-surgical, noninvasive fat reduction treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy (HIFU) to permanently destroy fat cells in just a single treatment. It 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.
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.
Benefits of Liposonix include:
- Permanently destroys unwanted fat using advanced ultrasound technology
- Targets your waistline, thighs, knees, and other problem areas
- Results are noticeable after a single treatment
- A totally non-surgical treatment with no downtime
How Lipsonix works
High-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the target fat. Fat tissue beneath the skin is permanently destroyed without damaging the skin. Your body naturally removes the treated fat, leaving you with a thinner waistline.
Q & A
Is Liposonix right for me?
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 noninvasive, so it is a great solution if you have stubborn fat but don’t want to have surgery.
What is the treatment like?
During treatment, you may experience discomfort, pain, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth. After treatment, you may experience temporary redness, bruising, discomfort, and swelling. Liposonix produces smooth results due to its unique, advanced delivery technology.
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. You should consult your doctor to discuss treatment areas and time.
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on the area you’re having treated, but treatments typically run between $2,000 and $3,000. We encourage you to come in for a consultation at which point we can give you a more precise idea of the cost.
What kind of results can I expect?
While results vary, clinical studies on the abdomen and flanks have shown average waistline reduction was about one dress or pant size (about one inch), with some patients losing up to two and one-half inches. Most people see maximum results in eight to 12 weeks, the time it takes for the body to naturally metabolize the destroyed fat tissue.
Is there downtime?
Since the treatment is noninvasive, there is little to no downtime, so you can resume your regular activities right away.
