Liposonix: 10 Things You Need To Know

Liposonix is the new, widely popular fat reduction procedure that is completely revolutionizing the way that men and women are shedding inches off of their waist line.  By harnessing the latest in ultrasonic technology, Liposonix is a safe, non-invasive, fat reduction procedure. So, is Liposonix the ideal solution for you? Find out by reading the top 10 things you need to know.
What is Liposonix?

Liposonix is a relatively new technology in the field of fat and cellulite reduction. By using focused ultrasonic waves of energy, Liposonix produces results comparable to traditional liposuction, but unlike liposuction, Liposonix is non-invasive. It requires no incisions, stitches, lengthy recovery times, or hefty surgeon bills.

How Does Liposonix Work?

Liposonix uses state of the art technology to focus high intensity ultrasonic energy into concentrated waves that can safely pass through the outer layers of skin tissue, penetrating the subcutaneous fat cells that lie beneath the skin’s surface. The ultrasonic energy heats up the fat cells, to the point of destruction.

Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body’s natural healing process will take over. Over a period of several weeks, the body’s lymphatic system will gradually remove the destroyed fat cells from the treatment area. These collected fat cells will then be expelled from the body as waste.

Does Liposonix Work?

Once you know how Liposonix works, the next question that most people want answered is “Does Liposonix work?” The answer is an emphatic yes! Results are consistent and undeniable. Liposonix reviews are predominately positive. The average patient will lose an inch of fatty tissue, from a single Liposonix treatment. These results have been substantiated and replicated in numerous, independent scientific studies.

One such study published in the Journal of Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery, titled “High-intensity focused ultrasound effectively reduces adipose tissue” validated the efficiency of Liposonix stating that “The average circumference reduction after treatment of the abdomen and waist is 4-5 cm. Liposonix turns out to be a safe and effective technique for nonsurgical body sculpting by reduction of fat deposits” (Fatemi A. 2009 Dec;28(4):257-62.)

Liposonix Before and After Pictures

Is Liposonix Safe?

Liposonix is completely safe. This revolutionary fat reduction technology was cleared by the FDA in 2011, “for non-invasive waist circumference reduction.” Read Liposonix’s summary report to the FDA here. Furthermore, because Liposonix is non-invasive, it is free from all of the frightening risks that come along with Liposuction and other fat reduction cosmetic surgeries that require Operating Rooms, plastic surgeons, scalpel made incisions, and general anesthesia.

What is the Liposonix Procedure Like?

During your procedure, your specialist will conduct your treatment using the Liposonix system, which consists of a cart-based machine that has a flexible device head which delivers the focused ultrasonic energy. The system looks similar to the ultrasound machine frequently used in hospital settings. During the procedure your specialist will skillfully move the device head around the treatment area. The typical Liposonix treatment takes under an hour to complete, giving way to its nickname as a “lunchtime” fat reduction procedure.

Ultimately, your Liposonix experience depends largely on the quality of specialist you choose to get your procedure from. Different medical spas will provide different experiences for their patients, but at SKINNEY Medspa, voted as NYC’s best Liposonix center, every effort is made to provide the patient with distinguishable professionalism and customer care, while also providing the patient with a luxurious atmosphere, most conducive for a relaxing, comfortable, and overall enjoyable experience.

Does Liposonix Hurt?

When Liposonix is performed by trained specialists, at a reputable medical spa, the procedure should not be painful. Occasionally, some patients might experience mild discomfort during the treatment, isolated to the treatment area. These patients compare the discomfort similar to what a sunburn might feel like. This discomfort is temporary, and if experienced, can easily be assuaged with over the counter pain relievers.

Another appealing thing about the Liposonix procedure is that it usually requires no downtime. Most patients return to their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. Some patients may feel some tenderness immediately after the treatment, and some patients may develop minor bruising around the treatment area. This is completely normal, and completely temporary. Even when patients experience tenderness or mild bruising, this discomfort is usually never intense enough to disrupt normal daily activities.

This is in sharp contrast compared to the downtime required after liposuction. Liposuction is a serious surgical procedure which requires a cosmetic surgeon to make several incisions through the tissue of the treatment area. The incisions allow the surgeon to insert a sharp suction device. Once inserted, the surgeon violently stabs at the fatty tissue in order to break it up so it can be sucked out. This results in a long, painful recovery time.

What Areas Can Liposonix Treat?

Liposonix has been approved by the FDA to treat the waist and flank areas of the body. This makes it a great fat reduction procedure for getting rid of belly fat, getting rid of love handles, as well as reducing fat on the thighs and buttocks.

After Liposonix, Will the Fat Ever Come Back?

No. This is one of the best things about Liposonix. Unlike other fat reduction exercises, diets, and technologies that have a high recidivism rate, the fat reduction from Liposonix is permanent. Liposonix does not shrink fat cells, it completely destroys them, and then uses your natural immune system to completely remove the dead fat cells from the body.

Am I Good Candidate for Liposonix in NYC?

While Liposonix is very effective at fat reduction, it is not suited for everyone who wants to lose inches off of their waste line. Liposonix is intended for healthy men and women,  who are struggling to shed that last inch of stubborn fat that has not been responsive to diet or exercise. Individuals who are significantly overweight, who have a BMI above 30 are not good candidates. Likewise, individuals need at least an inch of pinchable fat to be good candidates, as well.

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for Liposonix is to schedule a free appointment with the Liposonix NYC specialists at SKINNEY Medspa.
