Liposonix for Non-Invasive Inch Loss

by Marisa Amorasak


When it comes to non-surgical body contouring, the cat’s pretty much out of the bag: You can get rid of excess fat without going under the knife. Advanced devices use technology like radio frequencies, infrared heat, fractional lasers, and other power sources to permeate the skin and break down fat. While all body contouring procedures tout a low-commitment route to a skinnier you, not all treatments are alike. Different technologies target different types of fat, dispose of it in different ways, and therefore produce different results. It’s important to explore all of your body contouring options before choosing a treatment that best suits you. Introducing Liposonix, a new treatment designed for all-over fat reduction with zero downtime.

Liposonix Uses Ultrasound Technology

Liposonix utilizes the power of ultrasound for fat reduction. Ultrasound is commonly used in aesthetic treatments (see Ultherapy, VASER LipoSelection, and Zerona), but never for non-surgical fat reduction. Ultrasound is an ideal choice, because it penetrates more deeply than other types of energy. It passes through skin into subcutaneous fat, which is the fat that lies just below the skin. Many people find their own subcutaneous fat on their belly, hips, thighs, and buttocks to be diet and exercise-resistant. Deeper fat may also be affected. Liposonix uses high-intensity ultrasound in two distinct ways:

  1. To target and dissolve fat deposits using ultrasound vibrations and
  2. To tighten remaining tissue, for a firmer, leaner appearance

Unlike other body contouring techniques, Liposonix offers the unique benefit of versatility. Liposonix can treat virtually any of the body, with popular locations including the thighs, hips, abdomen, and buttocks. Each session takes about an hour, with most patients needing multiple sessions. Many Liposonix providers offer packaged deals to cut costs.

Liposonix Cost, Risks, and Side Effects

The average price of Liposonix is about 2,750 per session. Expect costs to differ depending on your geographical location (major cities tend to charge more) and the reputation of your provider. While many clinics offer financing options through companies like CareCredit, Liposonix won’t be covered by insurance because it’s a strictly cosmetic treatment. There are no risks associated with Liposonix, as it’s non-invasive. Most people don’t experience side effects, but when they do occur they generally include redness, swelling, and bruising at the treatment site. Avoid major physical activity and drink lots of fluids to alleviate the symptoms quickly.

Are You a Candidate for Liposonix?

Liposonix is not weight-loss surgery. But if you’re already in relatively good shape with just a bit of fat to lose, Liposonix may be a good choice for you. Expect your Liposonix results to last for as long as you can maintain a healthy lifestyle. Most Liposonix patients can return immediately to their normal schedule after a session, making it an attractive treatment for people with no downtime to spare. It’s also a quick treatment—don’t expect to stay longer than an hour. The best way to find a non-surgical body contouring treatment that fits your needs is to meet with an aesthetic specialist with experience in these types of treatments.
