Liposonix is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that permanently eliminates fat cells and helps reduce waist size. Ultrasonic waves are focused directly on targeted areas of the body safely destroying fat cells giving clients a slimmer, shapelier figure. This procedure uses the same energy as diagnostic ultrasound. However; it uses high energy waves to target specific areas of the body to eradicate fat cells with minimal side effects. Compared to liposuction, Liposonix does not require surgery.
How It Works
Liposonix has become one of the commonly used procedures for eliminating unwanted body fats. The method employs advanced ultrasound technology that helps decrease fat layers called adipose tissue. It uses high-intensity ultrasound energy to get rid of fat cells around the abdomen and flank areas permanently. As the machine delivers energy just beneath the surface of the skin, it destroys fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues. Its effect causes cellulite layers to melt causing thermos-coagulation.
A treatment head is first placed on the target area. It delivers high-intensity ultrasound energy which is focused directly on the targeted fat destroying fat cells underneath the surface layer of the skin. Treated fat tissue is then removed through the body’s natural elimination process.
As high-intensity ultrasound energy destroys fat cells, it triggers the body’s inflammatory and healing responses. Cells called “macrophages” overwhelms the fat as well as cellular debris transporting it through the venous and lymphatic system. It passes through the liver where it metabolizes the fat cells.
The treatment usually takes 30 to 60 minutes per area. Patients may feel mild discomfort during the procedure. Side effects include prickling, cold, warmth, or tingling sensation. After treatment, the body undergoes a natural inflammatory response like redness, swelling, and bruising. Adipose cells are subsequently removed from the body leaving less fat in the treated area. In clinical studies, a single treatment reduces about 1 inch or 2.5 cm around the waistline. It is equivalent to one dress or pant size. The whole procedure takes 2 to 4 weeks.
Some of the benefits of Liposonix includes:
• Few side effects and small discomfort during the procedure
• Treatment time with abdomen and flanks typically last 1 to 2 hours unlike others that take up to 7 hours
• Less expensive
• Permanently destroy fats in a sculpted fashion resulting in smooth contours and natural results
• No need for any infusion of wetting solutions
• No need for any bad recovery time
Liposonix vs Liposuction
Liposonix and liposuction have the same objective which is to get rid of belly fat and other fats on other fat problem areas. However, there are several differences in terms of how fat is destroyed.
Liposuction typically carries certain surgical risks associated with post-treatment recovery downtime. Liposonix on the other hand, provides a gentler procedure using ultrasonic energy. Compared to Liposuction’s aggressive approach, Liposonix delivers a non-invasive fat reduction procedure where patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
