With summer right around the corner, many of us are anticipating the bathing suit season with a bit of trepidation. Perhaps the sedentary months of winter have led to a few extra pounds that you are working on losing before the sun comes out to stay. If your weight loss efforts have not been successful in eliminating isolated fat bulges in problem spots like your waist and abdomen, New Visage has the solution. Liposonix is the latest in non-surgical body contouring and promised to trim down those curves in time for beach weather.
What is Liposonix?
Liposonix is a non-invasive method of body sculpting that uses targeted ultrasound energy to eliminate fat cells in those stubborn bulges. The procedure has been used overseas for many years and was approved for use in the U.S. in 2012. With plenty of research to back up its safety and efficacy, it’s no wonder Liposonix is becoming the new go-to body contouring treatment today.
Liposonix offers similar results to liposuction, but without the anesthesia, incisions and downtime that typically accompany a surgical procedure. This treatment has currently been approved for reduction of the abdomen and flank areas. The procedure works on all skin tones and types, and is equally effective with male and female patients.
The Magic of Ultrasound
Ultrasound technology has been used for decades as a diagnostic tool and in medical treatments. Now, ultrasound has made its place in the aesthetic industry with its ability to rejuvenate the skin and sculpt the body through elimination of unwanted fact. The ability to target the ultrasound energy to a specific location allows us to use the energy to permanently destroy fat cells so that they can be eliminated through natural body processes.
Using a handheld applicator, the ultrasound energy can be delivered deep beneath the skin’s surface without actually penetrating the skin. This means patients can enjoy significant body contouring results without the need for anesthesia or waiting for incisions to heal. The results appear gradually over time, so you may look like you are pulling some extra hours at the gym, rather than indulging in a cosmetic treatment.
Fast Procedure, Fast Results
A Liposonix procedure may take approximately one hour to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. Patients may feel some slight discomfort as the ultrasound energy is delivered, although the uncomfortable sensations will not last long. The staff at New Visage has numerous options in pain management to help make this procedure as comfortable as possible for you.
After the treatment, you are able to return to your regular activities right away. Redness and mild swelling are common after a Liposonix treatment, but will subside within a few hours after the procedure. Some patients may also experience bruising in the treatment area a few days after the treatment, but this side effect will resolve on its own within a week or two.
Results of Liposonix usually become evident within 8-12 weeks after treatment. At that time, you will likely notice you can fit into a smaller clothing size comfortably. You may also see that your abdomen is flatter and firmer, as the ultrasound energy works deep in the collagen layers underneath the surface of the skin to produce excellent results. As long as you maintain a healthy weight after your treatment, those results should be permanent.
