For some people, the struggle to get rid of unwanted fat is never ending. Its seems that no matter how much they diet or exercise, the fat just won’t go away. The good news is that there are solutions for this problem. One is Liposonix®, which has just arrived in the United States from Europe as an effective means of fat reduction.
How Does Liposonix® Work?
Liposonix® fat reduction works by destroying fat cells is concentrated ultrasound waves. Even though the name may remind some people of liposuction, Liposonix® is an entirely different procedure. for one, it is non-invasive. The doctor uses a handheld device over the area to be treated.
Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body simply processes and removes them like any other waste. This takes about two weeks to a month to complete, so no other body processes are interrupted by the treatment. Another benefit is that once fat cells are destroyed and removed from the body, they don’t grow back.
The secret to Liposonix® is that it works 1 to 2 centimeters beneath the skin. This means it does not affect the top layers of the skin but goes straight to the fat cells. The skin is left completely undamaged.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposonix®?
A good candidate for this fat reduction treatment is a person in good health, does not smoke and has reasonable expectations from the procedure. They have a body mass index that is less than 30. Patients should consult with our professionals to determine if they are good candidates. Liposonix® can be performed on both men and women.
During Liposonix®, the patient lies on a treatment table. The doctor marks the areas to be treated and applies the handheld device. Each session takes about an hour, and the patient can leave the aesthetician’s office right after it’s over.
Compression garments worn for a couple of days after the treatment can help ease any side effects of bruising, redness or swelling. Bruising can be eased by the patient taking arnica supplements about three days before their treatment then for two days after.
