The second generation Liposonix system specifically indicated for waist circumference reduction is FDA-approved and is available for treatment in the USA. LipoSonix works by attacking fat cells with high-intensity non-invasive focused ultrasound. Ultrasound waves are directed through the skin to fat cells beneath the skin, which are then broken down or emulsified. Scavenger-like cells called macrophages engulf the emulsified fat and cell debris, which are then ultimately removed from the body naturally.
Why Should I Consider Liposonix?
According to LipoSonix, this procedure can be effective at destroying excess fat at depths of an inch or more without doing any damage to the epidermis (the skin’s topmost layer). A reduction in the appearance of cellulite may accompany an overall reduction in fat. In contrast with other non-invasive body-contouring systems on the market today, the Liposonix system is highly versatile, allowing control over precisely how and where energy is delivered, for a truly customized treatment in a single 30-60 minute session. If you are getting close to your weight loss goals, but need a boost to cross the finish line – Liposonix may be for you. Results are generally seen 8-12 weeks post treatment, after your body naturally processes the destroyed fat treatment.
What is the Procedure Like?
The doctor moves the device head, similar in size and shape to an ultrasound device used to view a woman’s progress during pregnancy, around the area of treatment(s) for 30-60 minutes. Patient’s who have experienced Liposonix have described feeling mild discomfort such as cold, prickling, tingling or warmth during while treated. After treatment, some patients may have some mild bruising, redness, swelling and discomfort.
