HOW IS THE LIPOSONIX TREATMENT DIFFERENT?
Liposonix is unique among body contouring technologies – and the difference is all about focus and intensity. Liposonix uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to create a powerful thermal effect that destroys targeted fat in the abdomen and flanks. Liposonix treatments focus energy at specific depths in the fat without damaging surrounding tissue or non-targeted areas. Treatments can be customized to target specific trouble spots, or work across large treatment areas in a single session. The result? An effective, powerful treatment delivered in just a single one-hour session.
Non-Surgical – Non-Invasive
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.
Going Deeper With HIFU Technology
Many other non-invasive fat reduction technologies, such as Radiofrequency and lasers, energy is highly absorbed or scattered near the skin surface, limiting penetration into subcutaneous fat tissue and delivering temporary results. Ultrasound energy 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 destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver uniform, predictable results after a single one-hour treatment.
A Powerful Complement
Although no other treatment works like Liposonix, there are treatments that can work in combination to create even more remarkable results. Pairing Liposonix with technologies like the Thermage® System can give patients even more dramatic results – a slimming effect boosted by smoother surface skin.
