Research in liposuction alternatives made it even harder for unwanted fat pouches to stay around much longer. Say Hello! to Liposonix, a recently FDA approved treatment for permanent body fat cell reduction.
And how can Liposonix get rid of fat cells which up until recently required surgery? Of course with HIFU. What is this, you may ask? HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound, a technology that can be gentle (for instance to image the belly of a pregnant woman) or tough when it is used to treat tumors or kidney stones.
We use Liposonix to treat fatty tissues of the abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs, backs and even arms. Most Liposonix treatments take only 30-60 minutes to complete. And there is no recovery… “Well, does it work?”, you may want to know. It really does! Most men and women loose at least one inch (equals one pants size) in waist circumference after one single treatment. The results are mature after 2 to 3 months, but many patients see an improvement after only 3-4 weeks.
