What is Liposonix Non-Surgical Liposuction and Fat Reduction?

Liposonix is a high-frequency focused ultrasound device for the permanent fat reduction of localized unwanted areas of contour concern. Liposonix is one of the ultrasound treatment devices that can be used to permanently reduce fat in those Toronto non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction patients that want to avoid surgical intervention.

How is Liposonix® performed and how does Liposonix fat reduction work?

Liposonix is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment procedure for permanent fat reduction of localized fat areas. The Liposonix ultrasound transducer is placed over the soft tissue area to be treated and contoured.  Non-invasive ultrasound waves are then sent across the skin into the areas of unwanted fat where permanent fat destruction occurs.  Liposonix accomplishes its non-surgical fat cell destruction through a thermal mechanism, using the heat at the point of focused ultrasound to thermally destroy the fat cell permanently.

UltraShape, the other high-frequency focused ultrasound device, uses a gentle cavitation at the point of focused ultrasound, rather than heat, to result in permanent fat destruction and fat reduction.  The Liposonix procedure uses a small amount of ultrasound gel under the transducer and the treatment is performed by sending static, stacked pulses over each treatment square and the transducer is passed over the area where the unwanted fat is to be permanently destroyed.

Who is a candidate for Liposonix fat reduction treatments?

Liposonix and UltraShape high-frequency focused ultrasound candidates are those individuals who desire a noticeable reduction in localized fat, but do not want to undergo minimally-invasive liposuction, using SmartLipo, BodyTite or VASERLipo procedures. Liposonix high-frequency focused ultrasound patients must be realistic as to the noticeable but modest fat reduction results that can be achieved.  In general, in one hour, after one treatment, a reduction in one dress size can be  achieved with permanent fat reduction. Contraindications for Liposonix include those individuals who may be pregnant and any localized areas of infection, inflammation or skin cancer over the areas to be treated.

What kind of anesthetic is used for the Liposonix fat reduction treatments?

The Liposonix ultrasound treatment is acceptably tolerable, with modest pain, without any local anesthesia or anesthetic required.  The thermal destruction mechanism does result in a degree of discomfort that is often treated with simple oral, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and an oral narcotic. Most aesthetic treatments, such as Botox Injectable, soft tissue fillers and laser treatments have some pain associated with the procedure but achieve excellent results.

Is the Liposonix fat reduction treatment painful?

Liposonix treatments result in a very modest degree of discomfort and most patients find this degree of discomfort entirely acceptable. Most aesthetic treatments, such as Botox Injectable, soft tissue fillers and even laser hair removers result in a very modest degree of discomfort and Liposonix is very similar in this regard.

How long does the Liposonix fat reduction procedure and program take to perform?

Liposonix permanent focused ultrasound fat reduction and other focused ultrasound devices, such as UltraShape and VaserShape, require a series of one to three treatments, with each treatment separated by approximately two to six weeks, depending upon the ultrasound technology.  In general, patients notice the results of their focal fat reduction after a single treatment and a one-hour one treatment can result in a one dress size reduction through permanent fat reduction.  Optimal results are often achieved at the SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction fat reduction program by combining focused ultrasound treatments with other technologies such as permanent reduction radiofrequency, such as BodyFX or hypothermal techniques, like Zeltiq to achieve the optimal non-surgical liposuction fat reduction.  Each treatment takes approximately one hour and common treatment zones include the lower and upper abdomen, the hips and the outer and inner thighs.

How long is the recovery following my Liposonix fat reduction treatment?

There is no down time following the Liposonix focused ultrasound treatment for unwanted fat and patients can return to normal activities immediately.  Occasionally, there is some redness and swelling and some patients will experience very modest bruising in the area of a Liposonix treatment.

What kind of results can I expect following my Liposonix fat reduction treatment?

Most patients will see a noticeable reduction of one dress size after a single treatment.  Most SpaMedica patients undergo a series of treatments involving high-frequency focused ultrasound, like Liposonix or UltraShape in combination with permanent fat reduction radiofrequency treatments to both tighten the skin and optimize the number of fat cells that are destroyed with the non-surgical SpaMedica liposuction program.

What are patients saying about their Liposonix  fat reduction treatment?

Most patients find their SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program to be very successful.  SpaMedica focal fat reduction patients are selected based up on their desire to achieve a noticeable and significant reduction in their focal fat without undergoing liposuction surgery and, as such, the vast majority of patients are very happy with their program.

How long will the results from my Liposonix fat reduction treatment last?

Liposonix and UltraShape are both high-frequency focused ultrasound systems, one thermal and one cavitational, that result in a permanent death of the fat cells that are exposed to the energy.  As such, those fat cells that have died and will never return.  However, just like liposuction patients, Liposonix and UltraShape patients need to monitor their weight very carefully postoperatively to avoid any unnecessary excess carbohydrates going to either the area of treatment or to other areas which will affect their contour.  If Liposonix patients monitor and control their weight, the fat reductions achieved should be permanent.

Is there any maintenance required following my Liposonix treatment?

The Liposonix focal fat reduction is permanent in nature and, as such, no maintenance is required to keep the dead fat cells away.  However, subsequent Liposonix or synchronous permanent fat reduction treatments can achieve more permanent fat reduction.  In general, SpaMedica will treat the skin overlying any non-surgical liposuction area as well, with very effective and efficient, non-invasive radiofrequency skin heating devices to achieve tight skin in addition to fat reduction.  It is recommended that maintenance skin tightening treatments be performed once every three to four months to keep the skin tight and firm over the permanent reduction zones.

How much will my Liposonix fat reduction treatment procedure cost?

In general, SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction programs are programmatic and multi-treatment in nature with two or more devices. Toronto non-surgical liposuction fat reduction patients that undergo their SpaMedica program will receive one to two procedures such as Liposonix or UltraShape and BodyFX in a combination of treatments that generally requires between three to six treatments.  The total treatment cost is generally charged per zone and the treatment price depends on the size of the zone and the number of technologies needed to optimize the permanent focal fat reduction.  In general, the treatment programs cost less than $2,000 per zone, which is about one-third, or 30%, the price of a liposuction procedure.
