Liposonix is unique among body contouring technologies and the difference is all about focus and intensity. Liposonix uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to create a powerful thermal effect that destroys targeted fat in the abdomen and flanks. Liposonix treatments focus energy at specific depths in the fat without damaging surrounding tissue or non-targeted areas. Treatments can be customized to target specific trouble spots, or work across large treatment areas in a single session. The Liposonix treatment is non-invasive and patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound penetrates focused and volumetric ultrasound energy at precise depth (13mm, 8mm) in subcutaneous fat layers targeting fat tissue causing a non-thermal effect. The surrounding structures such as the epidermis, blood vessels and nerves will not be damaged. Meanwhile the metabolized contents (triglyceride, fatty acid) of cells will excrete outside body automatically through blood circulation and lymphatic drainage without harm to the body.
