For quite some time, Liposonix has been used overseas, and recently, it’s being used in America. Liposonix is commonly used to reduce cellulite, and by permanently removing fat cells, it can reduce your waist size.
The procedure involves the use of ultrasonic waves, which are focused to eliminate fat cells. If you want cellulite reduction and prefer to avoid surgery, Liposonix could be a great treatment option for you. The side effects are very minimal, and there is no downtime associated with the procedure.
For many decades, tens of thousands of individuals have tried to selectively remove fat. In the past, the only way that you could selectively remove fat from a specific area was to undergo liposuction. Today, cosmetic treatment options are different, and you can selectively remove cellulite with Liposonix.
How Does It Work?
Although it’s a very popular treatment, a lot of people still don’t know how Liposonix works. The procedure uses high-intensity ultrasound waves. Also called HIFU, the focused ultrasound causes fat cells to die, and it works safely and effectively. By focusing intense ultrasound energy about one to two centimeters below your skin’s surface, we’re able to kill fat cells while avoiding trauma and burns to the skin.
The treatment is quite comfortable, and it’s capable of removing cellulite from problem areas. The HIFU disrupts fat cells and can reduce your waist size by 1.5 to 2 inches. On average, the procedure takes about one hour to complete.
How Does Liposonix Kill Fat Cells?
When your fat cells are gently blasted with the ultrasound energy, they become disrupted and trigger the body’s inflammatory response. The fat cells become surrounded by macrophages, which are special cells within the body. These cells begin to move the cellular debris through your venous and lymphatic systems. Eventually, the fat cells are moved to the liver. Although it sounds fast, the process can take up to four weeks.
The liver handles the disrupted fat cells the same way that it handles fat cells that you eat and metabolizes them. Unlike some other procedures, Liposonix hasn’t been shown to increase the size of other areas of the body, so it doesn’t redistribute the fat cells elsewhere in your body.
Are You a Candidate for Liposonix?
If you’re interested in this procedure, you should know if you’re a good candidate. The procedure can be equally effective for men and women. Ideal candidates should have at least one inch of fat that they can pinch in a particular area.
The Liposonix procedure permanently disrupts fat cells in the treatment area. After about three months, most patients experience an average reduction of 1.8 inches in waist size, which is about one full size.
