WHAT IS IT?
If you are close to your ideal shape, but need a little help getting there, Liposonix may be for you. Liposonix treatments use high-intensity focused ultrasound to non-invasively get rid of targeted fat around your waistline (i.e. abdomen and love handles) without surgery. The average waistline reduction after just a single one-hour treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm.) - which typically means one dress or pant size.
HOW DOES IT DIFFERENT?
Invasive fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction, typically carry certain surgical risks and are associated with significant post-treatment recovery downtime. Even newer, minimally-invasive techniques are still surgical procedures. Unlike these types of surgical fat reduction, the Liposonix treatment is non-invasive and patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
IS LIPOSONIX RIGHT FOR ME?
Liposonix is not for everyone, but if you are close to your ideal size and have stubborn, unwanted fat around your waistline, then Liposonix may be for you. Some general factors that can help you determine if you are an appropriate candidate are:
- Be able to "pinch an inch" (2.5 cm.) of fat in the treatment area
- Have a body mass index (BMI) equal or less than 30
- Have good overall health
- Have realistic expectations about the results
DOES IT HURT?
During treatment, you may feel discomfort, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth, which are generally described as mild. After treatment, there may be some discomfort (pain), bruising, redness, and swelling, which are generally described as mild.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks, which is how long the body takes to remove the destroyed fat tissue through its natural process.
