A slim physique is always in style—especially when it comes to the waistline. A troublesome area for men and women both, the abdomen often holds and stores unwanted fat. For just this reason, “we offer Liposonix in our practice,” says Dr. Karlinsky. With its fat melting ways, Liposonix is “designed to help re-contour an area of the body which are resistant to diet and exercise”—proving itself “a wonderful tool to help people eliminate stubborn fat pockets.”
How Liposonix Works?
Liposonix utilizes high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to target specific pockets of fat. A small, handheld device sends short bursts of ultrasound energy to the targeted area, disturbing and permanently destroying the fat cells. Over the next eight to twelve weeks (*), the body naturally processes and removes the treated fat. A safe treatment, Liposonix penetrates the skin’s surface, targeting “fat cells which are 1.3 centimeters below the surface of the skin.” Precise in its accuracy, Liposonix effectively destroys fat cells without harming the skin or surrounding tissues.
Completely Customizable to Your Needs
Liposonix is a highly versatile treatment. With Liposonix, your physician is able to control how and where ultrasound energy is delivered. Dr. Karlinsky explains, “because of the size of the transducer, we can customize the area to be treated based on the individual.” Whereas other fat reduction treatments are limited to certain areas, Liposonix allows for “a more customized treatment depending on the individual and the areas which need to be addressed.”
Results After Only One Session
Liposonix boasts: One treatment, one hour, one size smaller. When asked, 91.3% of patients reported a noticeably flatter abdomen after only one treatment. On average, patients experience a waistline reduction of one inch—the equivalent to about one pant size. As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important “to have realistic expectations.” Although results are noticeable after one session, Dr. Karlinsky reminds us to “keep in mind that it may take more than one treatment to remove all the unwanted excess fat in the area you are treating”.
Are You a Candidate for Liposonix?
There is a good chance you are. Dr. Karlinsky explains, “as long as you have about an inch of fat that you can pinch off in the area that bothers you, it should respond well to Liposonix.” Further qualifications include:
- Body Mass Index (BMI) equal to or less than 30
- Overall good health
- Realistic expectations
