We are the first practice in Miami to have the Liposonix treatment which uses noninvasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound to permanently destroy targeted fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) without surgery, which may leave you with a slimmer, more contoured waistline.
The average waistline reduction after a single, 1-hour treatment is about 2.5 cm or one dress or pant size. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks (which is the time needed for the body to naturally remove the treated fat). Office visit time and individual results may vary.
The Liposonix treatment is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, or a way to lose weight but allows you to get rid of fat that will not go away no matter how many crunches you do.
During treatment, you may feel discomfort, pain, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth. After treatment, you may experience minimal discomfort, bruising, redness, and swelling, which are generally described (or rated) as mild.
How is Liposonix Different?
The Liposonix treatment is unique because of its high-energy output and high frequency; creating a thermal effect that permanently destroys the targeted fat in the abdomen and love handles. Also it has the unique ability to focus its energy at specific depths in the fat without damaging surrounding tissue or non-targeted areas.
Compared to the Liposonix treatment, low-energy systems such as laser or radio-frequency are not able to reach the fat located deep below the outer layers of skin. This is because the energy these systems use is reflected and absorbed by the skin. The Liposonix system uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy, which is not reflected and absorbed by the skin but penetrates through the skin layers and into the targeted fat without harming skin or surrounding tissues
