If you have stubborn fat around your waist, thighs or buttocks and your healthy diet or exercise regime is making little impact then Liposonix can help sculpt the areas into shape. The ideal candidate for this treatment should be able to ‘pinch and inch’ in the area of concern, anything less than an inch probably does not need to be treated, but this can be determined by your aesthetic practitioner.
Liposonix uses advanced ultrasound technology to break down and eliminate unwanted fat cells. The technology is called High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and is responsible for destroying fat cells safely and effectively. The ultrasound energy is focused 1-2cm below the skin’s surface, which avoids burns or trauma to the surface and makes treatment more comfortable.
During your procedure your practitioner will move the head of the Liposonix system over the area to be treated for 30-60 minutes. The HIFU disrupts stubborn fats cells, which are then attracted by the body’s inflammatory and healing responses and transported to the liver where they are metabolised naturally.
With one treatment you can hope to see immediate results, with the final results visible after three months, which is the time it naturally takes for the body to metabolise the fat. As the fat cells have been destroyed, there is no redistribution of fat and it can’t return to the treatment area because those cells no longer exist. You will need to maintain your results with a healthy diet and exercise. For optimal results we recommend combining this treatment with Thermage, although your practitioner will be able to suggest the best course of action.
