LiposonixLiposonix® is an innovative, non-invasive fat reduction system made effective with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, called HIFU. This technology, which gained FDA approval in 2011, has been proven successful at effectively penetrating the skin to reach fat cells deeper in the dermis. The high intensity focused energy makes all the difference, significantly improving the predictability of treatment. During treatments, ultrasound energy reaches past the surface of the skin to destroy targeted fat cells safely and naturally. In the two to three months following treatment, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body.
Liposonix® treatments are completed in our office within about an hour. The duration of treatment depends on the size and number of areas to be treated. Common areas on which Liposonix® efficiently handles unwanted fat include the stomach and the flanks, where love handles develop. The power of ultrasound energy, however, can also tighten areas such as the arms and thighs. One of the best things about non-invasive fat reduction with Liposonix® is that normal activities can be resumed right away.
Our patients love the results they see from Liposonix® treatment. After one session, it is possible to experience a full-size pant reduction, or about 2.5cm from the waist. After just one treatment, fat cells are permanently destroyed in the treated area. It is possible, however, to undergo a second session after three months to achieve even better results.
Because heat from ultrasound energy encourages the production of collagen, the skin is also tightened as fat cells are reduced. Individuals whose skin has lost a great deal of elasticity, however, may achieve the best results combining Liposonix® with a specific skin-tightening treatment such as Thermage.
Liposonix® is a great way for those who are near their ideal proportions but want to eliminate smaller areas of stubborn fat. This treatment is not intended as a weight loss tool, but can be a wonderful adjunct to healthy diet and exercise. Liposonix® is safe on all skin colors.
