LipoSonix VS Liposuction
Surgical 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 radiofrequency 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.
How is a LipoSonix Treatment Different?
Many nonsurgical treatment systems do not penetrate and destroy the fat found beneath the skin. Most of the energy from these systems is absorbed by the skin tissue (dermis and epidermis) not the targeted fat tissue underneath.
The LipoSonix treatment is unique among body-contouring technologies. By using a high-energy output and a high frequency, the LipoSonix treatment creates a thermal effect that permanently destroys the targeted fat in the abdomen and love handles.
The LipoSonix treatment is also unique because of its ability to focus its energy at specific depths in the fat without damaging surrounding tissue or non-targeted areas. This efficient delivery of energy into the fat tissue can result in a treatment time of about 1 hour (office visit time may vary).
OTHER ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGIES
Compared with other ultrasound body-contouring technologies, the LipoSonix treatment uses higher energy and higher frequency to create a controlled thermal effect to destroy targeted fat in the treatment area.
LASER AND RADIO-FREQUENCY (RF) TECHNOLOGIES
Compared to the LipoSonix treatment, low-energy systems such as laser or radio-frequency have less penetration into the targeted fat. This is because the energy these systems use is reflected and absorbed by the skin. The LipoSonix system uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy, which penetrates through the skin layers and into the targeted fat without harming skin or surrounding tissues.
Appropriate Candidates For the LipoSonix Treatment
These candidates must be able to:
What Can I Expect?
Your health practitioner moves the head of the Liposonix system around the area to be treated, and treats for 30 to 60 minutes depending the size of the area to be treated.
During treatment, you may feel some discomfort, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth, which are generally described as mild. And does not require anesthetic treatment prior.
After one LipoSonix treatment, 91% of patients surveyed in a clinical study reported improvement in their abdominal flatness. In fact, one treatment of about one hour may result in a patient reducing their waistline by an average of 2.5 cm, or about 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). Individual results and office visit times may vary. LipoSonix is not liposuction or surgery, is not a replacement for 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.
