Liposonix Permanent Fat Removal
For all of you interested in losing inches from a stubborn area without invasive surgery, this is the most effective non-invasive, FDA-approved option with no downtime. For many years patients had to go up to Canada or Europe for this unique non-invasive treatment, when the lasers were being manufactured in our own backyard (Bothell, WA). It cleared FDA in January of 2012 to be used in the US. The Engineer behind the technology is Dr. Quistgaard who holds a B.S. degree in mathematics and computational sciences from Stanford University and M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Washington.
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. High-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the targeted fat. Skin is not damaged as targeted fat beneath the skin is permanently destroyed by the ultrasound energy. The body naturally removes the destroyed fat from the treatment area.
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 2.5 cm, or about one dress or pant size, with a single 1-hour treatment. Office visit time and individual results may vary. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks. There is some discomfort during the procedure, some bruising post procedure, but no downtime and life as usual as soon as treatment is over.
HOW IS LIPOSONIX DIFFERENT?
Non-Surgical - Non-Invasive - FDA Approved
Invasive fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction, typically carry certain surgical risks and are associated with significant post-treatment recovery downtime. Even newer, minimally-invasive techniques are still surgical procedures. Unlike these types of surgical fat reduction procedures, the Liposonix treatment is non-invasive and patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Patients come in all shapes and sizes, and so does their fat. Other non-invasive body contouring devices can be limited in their ability to treat certain areas of fat and may require several hours and/or multiple treatment sessions to adequately address problem areas. The Liposonix system is highly versatile, allowing control over precisely how and where energy is delivered, for a truly customized treatment in a single one-hour session.
With many other non-invasive fat reduction technologies, such as radio frequency and lasers, energy is highly absorbed or scattered near the skin surface, thereby limiting penetration into subcutaneous fat tissue and delivering only temporary results. Ultrasound energy, on the other hand, can be used to penetrate through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissues. Other ultrasound body contouring technologies often use low-intensity, low-frequency, or unfocused energy which can require multiple treatments and lead to unpredictable results. The Liposonix system uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to permanently destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver uniform, predictable results after a single one-hour treatment.
What can Liposonix do for you?
If you’re close to your ideal shape, but need a little help getting there, Liposonix may be for you. Liposonix treatments use non-invasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound to permanently get rid of targeted fat around your waistline (abdomen and love handles) without surgery. The average waistline reduction after just a single one-hour treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) – which typically means one dress or pant size.
Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks (which is the time needed for the body to naturally process the treated fat). Liposonix is not liposuction or surgery, is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and exercise, and is not a way to lose weight. But it is a quick, easy way to help you slim that last inch and hit your personal shape goals.
Is Liposonix right for you?
Liposonix is not for everyone. But if you are close to your ideal size and have stubborn, unwanted fat around your waistline you just can't seem to get rid of with diet and exercise, then yes, Liposonix may be for you. The best way to know for sure is to schedule a consultation with our office. There are also some general factors that can help you determine if you are an appropriate candidate.
Candidates for Liposonix treatment must:
Be able to "pinch-an-inch" (2.5 cm) of fat in the treatment area
Have a body mass index (BMI) equal to or less than 30
Have good overall health
Have realistic expectations about the results
Upon completion of a post-study survey “…91.3% of Liposonix patient subjects responded that the flatness of their abdomen had improved after just one treatment” On average, one hour-long treatment resulted in a waistline reduction of 1 inch (2.5 cm) – about one dress or pant size. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks, which is how long the body takes to remove the destroyed fat tissue through its natural process.

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 permanently 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?
