Liposonix® aids in your body-sculpting endeavor

We live in a body-conscious society. One look at the TV screen or in a magazine gives an immediate reminder. If you have been striving for your ideal contours, but diet and exercise have left you with a small pooch around the middle, Liposonix® treatment may be just what you need to complete your body-sculpting journey.

Liposonix® is an innovative advancement in the area of non-invasive body-contouring treatments. It is not a surgical procedure, and is not liposuction. This treatment, performed in your dermatologist’s office, gives you the ability to reduce the fat around your midsection, the very area that tends to require the most work to become taut. There are several advantages to the Liposonix® treatment, including the fact that treatment is non-invasive. The subsequent benefit is the lack of down time after treatment. After a single Liposonix® treatment, many people experience at least a one-inch loss within a few weeks.

How Liposonix® works

Using high-intensity focused ultrasound, Liposonix® destroys fat cells that reside in problem areas such as the flanks or the abdomen. No cannulas, suction, or anesthesias are needed to complete your body transformation. No cuts are made into the skin. Using a compact handpiece, your practitioner simply directs ultrasonic energy to fat cells through the skin.

As the focused ultrasound contacts fat cells, they experience a dramatic temperature change. Patients may feel a warm or cold sensation, and mild tingling during treatment. This temperature change destroys unwanted fat cells, which are then absorbed and eliminated. A side effect of the temperature change that occurs in the treatment area is an increased production of collagen. This helps skin tighten as the reduction in inches occurs.

There are several fat-reduction treatments available today. Most of them require multiple visits. This is the beauty of Liposonix® - a single treatment will produce fat reduction. Within twelve weeks following the procedure, most patients notice they are able to drop at least one pant or dress size. Imagine, a one-hour treatment, no incisions, no recovery, just lasting results.
