A non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment that permanently destroys fat cells with good long lasting results.
The abdomen, love handles, arms, thighs, and fat pads under the armpits are just a few areas that Liposonix can treat.
A consultation with Dr. Alvin Wong is essential to accurately understand your concerns and explain where and how this non-surgical treatment can help remove fat for you.
The Liposonix treatment uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy (HIFU) to permanently destroy fat cells.
After HIFU precisely targets the treatment area, fat cells in that area are disrupted and over 2-4 weeks are processed and metabolised naturally by the body.
Few non-invasive body contouring treatments can compare with Liposonix in terms of efficacy.
This treatment is safe. Liposonix has 10 years of research and testing behind its development. It has a well-defined safety profile during and after treatment, and has had very good patient satisfaction. Treatments have been available in Europe, Japan and Canada for many years now with good results.
Liposonix is FDA approved for the removal of fat and is only available in selected medical clinics. This treatment can only be performed by specially trained medical doctors.
The skin is cooled before HIFU focused ultrasound waves melt the fat in your problem areas. You may experience a deep heating sensation during the session. The procedure will always be performed at a level where you do not experience unbearable discomfort. Generally the higher the level of treatment, the better the results but discomfort also increases. The level of treatment most suitable for you is selected through a medical consultation with Dr. Alvin, and can continue to be tailored during the treatment itself.
Typically a Liposonix treatment is completed in about one hour. The fat is destroyed in just a single treatment and there is no surgery involved.
After treatment there may be mild redness and slight bruising. These will disappear after 3 days.
Since the treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive there is little to no downtime.
Most people can resume regular activities right away.
Individual results will vary, but all patients selected according to strict guidelines will see improvements and size reduction.
Clinical studies have shown an average waistline reduction of one dress or pant size (1 inch or 2.5 cm reduction). Aesthetic outcomes have been very good for these clients and even more so if a healthy lifestyle is maintained after the procedure to maintain results.
