Liposonix Overview | FAQ
Lasting one hour
One size smaller
Liposonix is a non-invasive and non-surgical fat reduction treatment. It is great for those who are close to their ideal shape, but have stubborn areas of fat that just won’t go away no matter how much they exercise or diet. Liposonix delivers results without the risks typically associated with surgical fat reduction procedures. It is not liposuction, or a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and exercise; but it is a quick, easy way to help you slim that last inch and hit your personal shape goals!
Liposonix uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to permanently destroy targeted fat cells without surgery. It works by focusing ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin in order to heat only targeted fat tissue. The treated fat tissue is then removed through the body’s lymphatic system, our natural healing process.
The procedure takes about one hour and patients typically achieve a waistline reduction of approximately one inch (equivalent to one pant or dress size) within 8-12 weeks after receiving a single treatment. During the treatment, patients may experience some discomfort, prickling, tingling or warmth. After the treatment, patients may experience temporary mild redness or minimal bruising, and swelling. There is no special post-care, diet, or exercise program required in order to achieve results and most patients typically resume normal activities immediately after their Liposonix procedure.
Liposonix is not intended for those that are pregnant or suspected to be pregnant. It is also not recommended for those who have a BMI >30 (may consider liposuction), or for those who cannot “pinch an inch”.
