Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Liposonix treatment?

The Liposonix treatment uses non-invasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound to get rid of fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) without surgery. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks.

How does the Liposonix treatment work?

High-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the targeted fat. Skin is not damaged as targeted fat beneath the skin is destroyed by the ultrasound energy. The body naturally removes the destroyed fat from the treatment area, which may leave you with a thinner, more contoured waistline.

How is the Liposonix treatment different from other fat reduction products/procedures?

Unlike some other fat reduction procedures that often require multiple treatments to see results, with the Liposonix treatment, you can reduce your waistline by an average of 1 inch (2.5 cm), or about one dress or pant size, with a single one-hour treatment. 
Office visit time and individual results may vary. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks. 

How long does a treatment take?

A Liposonix treatment of the abdomen and love handles is completed in about one hour. Office visit time may vary. Your healthcare professional can give you a better estimate after evaluating you.

How will my doctor know if the Liposonix treatment is right for me?

Your doctor will decide if the Liposonix treatment is right for you based on an evaluation of a number of factors, including the amount of fat in the area to be treated and your overall health.
