Liposonix the summer News!

Updated: Jun 18, 2023

Summer reminds us of the beach, holidays, bikinis and the sun. There is a whole preparation for the summer that starts as early as possible! This summer you'll be able to count on the effects of a new Aesthetic Apparatus technique that will allow you to reduce localized fat and wear the size of clothes you've always wanted!

What is Liposonix?

Liposonix is a high-frequency focused ultrasound that permanently destroys fat cells in the abdominal area, flanks and thighs. Once destroyed, fat cells are phagocytosed by macrophages and eliminated through the liver. Liposonix is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment for body shaping, cellulite reduction and skin improvement.

What types of results can I expect?

Unlike the soft ultrasound waves used in obstetric ultrasounds to monitor fetal growth, these ultrasounds have the ability to destroy fat cells located between 1 cm and 2 cm below the skin, without affecting neighboring tissues.

The treatment lasts about 1 hour and reduces the abdominal perimeter by an average of 4 to 5 cm, that is, a reduction equivalent to the size of a pair of pants. Results can be seen right after the first session, within 2 to 3 weeks, although in most cases it takes 3 to 6 months to reach the maximum final results.

Who can take Liposonix?

Both women and men can be candidates for treatments with this technique. Liposonix is indicated for cases in which there is a fat fold that can be caught with the fingers, that is, with a fat fold of at least 2 cm. Severely obese cases with a body mass index greater than 30 may be eligible for other treatments first. A prior evaluation is essential, which we recommend.

Are there side effects? It's painful?

Patients may experience some side effects like skin redness, bruising, swelling or tenderness after the treatment. These effects are mild and disappear within hours or days. Usually the treatment is practically painless.

Liposonix is therefore a treatment approved by the FDA and the studies carried out show that despite the destruction of adipose cells there is no increase in the blood cholesterol value.

Where can I do?
