Liposonix MANUFACTURER NOTES
Ground-Breaking Fat Reduction
1 Hour, 1 Treatment, 1 Size Smaller
Liposonix is effective on:
Targeting and eliminating fat around the abdomen
Targeting and eliminating fat around the flanks (love handles)
Patients that are close to their ideal size and shape – but can “pinch-an-inch” of fat in the treatment area
Liposonix can permanently eliminate fat, giving a slimmer, trimmer look.
Liposonix® is a proven, unique and effective aesthetic device built on ultrasound technology to deliver Custom Contouring fat reduction.
Liposonix ultrasound energy is focused in the subcutaneous fat layer beneath the skin, eliminating unwanted fat cells around the waist. The result is real slimming and smoothing with an average of 1 inch (2.5 cm) circumferential waistline reduction which typically means one dress or pant size. For patients with stubborn fat around the waistline (the abdomen and love handles) Liposonix can eliminate fat, giving a slimmer, trimmer look.
How does the Liposonix treatment work to destroy fat?
The Liposonix system focuses high-intensityfocused ultrasound energy at a precise depth (1.3 cm) within the targeted adipose tissue in the abdomen and flanks, without harming the skin or surrounding tissues and organs. This causes thermal coagulation of adipose tissue within the focal zone of the ultrasound beam. The destroyed tissue and released triglycerides are engulfed and removed by macrophages that are drawn to the treated area by chemotactic signals. The lipid-laden macrophages then move through the lymphatic system to the liver, where the lipids are processed by the bodys normal biochemical pathways. Once processed by the liver, the energy from the lipids may be used by the body directly or, as with any fat, may be stored by the body in adipose tissue if the energy is not required immediately. Adipocytes that are destroyed in the treated area are no longer available to store fat. The damaged tissue in the treated area is resorbed over a period of approximately 8 to 12 weeks, which can yield an aesthetic body-contouring effect.
What are the benefits of using heat when treating subcutaneous adipose tissue?
By utilizing heat, the Liposonix treatment creates a dual tissue response. The controlled thermal effect results in the destruction of targeted fat as well as contraction of collagen in the treatment area. (The benefit of collagen denaturization cannot be achieved with cryolipolysis or low intensity ultrasound.) The body then naturally processes and removes the destroyed fat tissue over a period of 8 to 12 weeks, which may leave patients with a slimmer, more contoured waistline.
