Liposonix Northern Virginia
In the battle to look your best, there’s nothing more frustrating than that stubborn “last inch” you’re trying to shed — especially around your waistline. The Custom Contouring™ capabilities of the Liposonix® System target and eliminate fat around your waist — in your abdomen and in the dreaded love handles — to help noticeably slim your waistline.
The Liposonix system is powered by high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to permanently destroy subcutaneous adipose (fat) tissue. The hand piece focuses energy precisely at specific depths, creating a rapid rise in temperature only at the targeted area. Tissue outside of the treated area is unharmed. By utilizing heat, the system creates a tissue response resulting in the destruction of targeted fat as well as contraction of collagen in the treatment area.
Liposonix is a safe alternative to traditional liposuction because it is non-surgical and non-invasive. There are no incisions created on your body; instead, it uses high-intensity focused ultrasound to treat and eliminate the stubborn fat. It’s perfect for people close to their ideal size and shape — but need help where diet and exercise just won’t work. Sometimes, you need just a little help getting to your ideal shape — a Liposonix treatment may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Body Contouring Technology
There’s a lot of buzz around the various new innovative fat reduction technologies. It seems like scientists are finding new ways, all the time, to kill fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue. Liposonix throws its hat into the ring with its new ultrasound technologies.
Penetrating Deeper and More Effectively
Until recently, fat reduction was on that list of surgeries that had to make a choice between invasive but effective, and noninvasive but all too mild.
Particularly, radio frequencies and lasers have had difficulty penetrating the dermis deeply enough to effect more than mild change. There were results, but the fat was still too stubborn.
Ultrasounds, however, penetrate skin without actually harming it. Though Liposonix is not the first fat reduction treatment to use ultrasounds, it is the first to use ultrasounds with the intensity and precision to target the fat and eliminate it within the course of a single treatment session.
What Makes Me a Good Candidate for Liposonix?
Of course, the day still hasn’t come where non-invasive fat reduction treatments are, without question, more effective than liposuction.
Liposonix works best as a product that gets you the last mile and a half. It’s particularly useful for stubborn problem areas, like love handles, and a single treatment session can reduce waist size from one inch to nearly two inches.
The results can take a few months to show, as the body needs to filter that fat through the lymphatic system.
Liposonix could case redness, swelling and bruising immediately after the procedure, though this usually goes away after a few hours.
