In the battle to look your best, there's nothing more frustrating than that stubborn "last inch" you're trying to shed - especially around your waistline.
The Custom Contouring™ capabilities of the Liposonix® System target and eliminate fat around your waist - in your abdomen and in the dreaded love handles - to help noticeably slim your waistline.
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 procedures, the Liposonix treatment is non-invasive and patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Patients come in all shapes and sizes, and so does their fat. Other non-invasive body contouring devices can be limited in their ability to treat certain areas of fat and may require several hours and/or multiple treatment sessions to adequately address problem areas. The Liposonix system is highly versatile, allowing control over precisely how and where energy is delivered, for a truly customized treatment in a single one-hour session.
With many other non-invasive fat reduction technologies, such as radio frequency and lasers, energy is highly absorbed or scattered near the skin surface, thereby limiting penetration into subcutaneous fat tissue and delivering only temporary results. Ultrasound energy, on the other hand, can be used to penetrate through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissues. Other ultrasound body contouring technologies often use low-intensity, low-frequency, or unfocused energy which can require multiple treatments and lead to
unpredictable results. The Liposonix system uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to non-invasively destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver uniform, predictable results after a single one-hour treatment.
If you’re 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 (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.
Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks (which is the time needed for the body to naturally process the treated fat).
Liposonix is not liposuction or surgery, is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and exercise,and is not a way to lose weight. But it is a quick, easy way to help you slim that last inch and hit your personal shape goals.
For a treatment that's so technologically advanced, getting Liposonix® is pretty simple. All treatments begin with a physician consultation to see if Liposonix is right for you. Liposonix is a single, non-invasive treatment that takes about one hour.
Liposonix is not for everyone. But if you are close to your ideal size and have stubborn, unwanted fat around your waistline you just can't seem to get rid of with diet and exercise, then yes, Liposonix may be for you. The best way to know for sure is to schedule a consultation with a physician. There are also some general factors that can help you determine if you are an appropriate candidate.
Upon completion of a post-study survey “…91.3% of Liposonix patient subjects responded that the flatness of their abdomen had improved after just one treatment1…” On average, one hour-long treatment resulted in a waistline reduction of 1 inch (2.5 cm) – about one dress or pant size.
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.
With over 10 years of research and testing behind it, Liposonix has a well-defined safety profile. In clinical studies, Liposonix was shown to destroy only the targeted area of fat and did not damage any of the surrounding tissue. Because the results typically occur over a period of 8 to 12 weeks, the body is not overloaded with fat in the blood stream and there was no overall effect seen in liver function tests during clinical trials.
Some patients have reported discomfort (pain) during and following treatment, which is typically rated as mild. Liposonix is not for everyone – it is not intended to treat obesity or areas with too little fat. Tell your doctor if you have a bleeding disorder, are using a medication to thin your blood or prevent clotting, have had surgery in the area to be treated, or have an implanted electrical device, such as a pacemaker. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, the Liposonix treatment must be postponed. Ask your doctor if Liposonix is right for you.
The Liposonix system delivers high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy that can disrupt subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) to provide a non-invasive approach to body contouring to achieve a desired aesthetic effect. Indications may vary from country to country:
US: Indicated for non-invasive waist circumference reduction (i.e., abdomen and flanks).
EU: Indicated for trunk and lower extremities excluding the lower leg (i.e., abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs and buttocks).
Canada: Indicated for abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs and buttocks.
Your doctor moves the head of the Liposonix system around the area to be treated, and treats for 30-60 minutes.
During treatment, you may feel discomfort, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth, which are generally described as mild.
