What is Liposonix?
Liposonix is a nonsurgical fat-reduction treatment that uses high-intensity ultrasound energy (HIFU) to destroy fat cells. Your body flushes out the damaged cells in the coming weeks, for a permanent reduction of fat in the treated area. This body-contouring device is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the abdomen and love handles, and it’s intended for pockets of stubborn fat that resist diet and exercise—not as a weight-loss solution.
What happens during a Liposonix procedure?
What can you expect during Liposonix recovery?
Post-treatment recovery downtime is minimal, and you can return to normal activities quickly. You may have some bruising, and treated areas will be swollen and sore to the touch a day or two following the procedure, but these side effects typically disappear in less than two weeks. You’ll be able to resume your regular exercise routine a week after the Liposonix procedure.
Tip: While the eliminated fat cells can’t grow back, the fat cells that remain in the treated area can expand if you gain weight. You’ll want to maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep up your results long-term.
Both Liposonix and CoolSculpting provide non-invasive fat reduction sans surgical risks. While Liposonix damages fat cells with ultrasound energy, CoolSculpting works with cryolipolysis—aka destroying fat cells with extreme cold.
Results from both non-invasive fat reduction technologies come several weeks down the line, after your body has had time to flush the targeted fat tissue from its system. The HIFU technology of Liposonix may also help tighten the skin, whereas CoolSculpting only addresses fat.
