Fat Reduction That Fits
WHAT IS LIPOSONIX?
LipoSonix is a device that is used to permanently get rid of fat cells and reduce waist size. LipoSonix uses focused ultrasound waves to permanently eliminate fat cells in your problem areas. LipoSonix gets rid of these fat cells without surgery and with minimal side effects or downtime.
For decades, people have been trying to selectively remove fat from problem areas, using belts, injections, exercise, and many other cosmetic surgery techniques. Until now, the only way to really remove fat from a selective area was liposuction. Now there is LipoSonix.
- HOW DOES LIPOSONIX WORK?
LipoSonix uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to cause the death of fat cells safely and effectively. Focusing the ultrasound energy of LipoSonix at 1-2 cm below the surface of the skin sidesteps any trauma to the skin and makes the treatment more comfortable. The fat cells are disrupted by the HIFU, resulting in an average 4-5 cm (1.5-2 inches) reduction in waist size per one hour treatment.
- AFTER LIPOSONIX
The disrupted fat cells cause body’s inflammatory and healing responses to kick in. Macrophages engulf the fat and cellular debris. The macrophages then transport the fat through the lymphatic and venous system to the liver. The liver takes the fat and metabolizes it. Studies have not shown an increase in other body measurements after the use of LipoSonix. This means there is no measurable redistribution of the fat. We know it can’t go back to the treatment area because those cells no longer exist.
- IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR LIPOSONIX
This treatment is wonderful regardless of gender. Ideally the person’s BMI should be below 30.
- EXPECTED RESULTS
Current studies show an average decrease in waist size of 4.6 cm or 1.8 inches after 3 months. This is essentially one pant size.
- ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
LipoSonix has minimal side effects. Patients using the second generation LipoSonix machine have experienced only mild discomfort or no discomfort whatsoever.
Some patients exhibit redness, swelling and bruising after LipoSonix. Redness usually disappears after a few hours. The swelling from LipoSonix usually goes down within a few days. Compression garments or “Spanx” help reduce the swelling and often make the first day or two more comfortable. We recommend most patients wear compression garments for the first 2-3 days after the LipoSonix procedure. Bruising from LipoSonix may take up to 2 weeks to resolve. Arnica supplements taken for 3 days prior to LipoSonix treatments and continued for 2 days after LipoSonix may help reduce the bruising and swelling.
