Liposonix: Am I suitable?
The doctor will decide if the Liposonix treatment is right for you based on an evaluation of a number of factors, including the amount of fat in the area to be removed and your overall health.
Liposonix: What’s the treatment like?
Liposonix fat removal treatments are usually about an hour. The treatment head of the Liposonix system is placed on the area to be treated and then high-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the target fat, permanently destroying the fat cells beneath the surface layers of the skin – the skin layer is not harmed. The treated fat tissue is then removed through the body's natural healing process, aiming to leave you with a thinner, more contoured waistline.
Liposonix: What about after?
During treatment, patients may feel discomfort, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth. In a clinical study, the average waistline reduction after a single treatment was about one inch (2.5 cm), which is typically equal to one dress size. Most patients will see results after just one treatment but full results are usually seen in 8 to 12 weeks, though individual results will vary.
Liposonix: Are there any risks or side effects?
After treatment, patients may experience some discomfort, bruising, redness, and swelling, which are generally described as mild.
Liposonix: What will it cost me?
The Liposonix treatment is customized to your specific needs, so the cost will vary. In general, the cost is comparable to the cost of similar non-invasive procedures and less expensive than liposuction surgery.
