The skin tightening treatment is designed to sculpt, lift and contour for transformative results.
01: What is Liposonix?
Liposonix is one of the state of the art treatments available on our non-surgical treatment menu that delivers an intense high frequency ultrasound to target and destroy undesired and stubborn fat cells in a non-invasive treatment under 60 minutes.
02: How does it work?
Administered to any chosen area, Liposonix targets the subcutaneous fat (below the skin’s surface) to tighten and tone from the inside out. Fat becomes destroyed through the method of thermal coagulation which is caused by the ultrasound frequency. The energy delivered to the fat, treats the fat tissue directly and is naturally removed through the body’s waste processes.
03: What does the procedure involve?
Each treatment will be determined initially at your consultation, this is to ensure you understand everything about the treatment, receive answers to your questions and determine the right approach for you and your desired results. Following this, the practitioner will use the Liposonix machine and safely pass over the areas that are being treated. Once the fat cells are diminished, the body’s natural healing processes will take shape and over the following weeks, the lymphatic system will gradually remove the destroyed fat cells from the treated area.
04: Who is suitable for the treatment?
Any ideal candidate that can essentially pinch the fat in the area. However, suitability will be determined during your consultation.
05: Are the results immediate?
Results can be seen after just one treatment but we do recommend at least a course of three over the following months. The results are undeniable with many patients noting a significant fat loss on the areas treated.
06: How long do the results last?
Due to the nature of fat cells, they can develop and disappear over the course of time so we do recommend that alongside the treatment a healthy diet and lifestyle is achieved for long lasting results.
07: Is any downtime required?
Minimal downtime is required, although some patients experience mild discomfort in the following 1-2 weeks after treatment. If there are any concerns, please contact our practitioners.
08: Is more than one treatment required?
Liposonix just requires one treatment however more treatment sessions have been added if patients want to enhance their results.
09: Is the treatment painful?
The treatment can be slightly uncomfortable but most patients find it manageable – if not, then we can recommend pain medication to help.
10: What are the risks?
Generally bruising, swelling and tenderness toward the treated area.
