Non-surgical selective body slimming is now possible. "Liposonix is the technology we've been waiting for. We can finally remove fat without surgery," says Dr. Power. The system uses ultrasound to reduce waistline measurement by 1.5 to 2 inches with just one treatment.
Online PR News – 19-June-2012 – Marin County, CA – Marin County, CA - Injections, exercise, diets, even prayers? "For decades people have been trying to remove fat from problem areas, but until now liposuction has been the only reliable way to remove fat from a specific area," says Dr. Karron Power, Medical Director of Youth Renewal Center. "The LipoSonix is a new device designed to permanently get rid of fat cells and reduce waist size. The treatment uses ultrasound waves to slim the abdomen without surgery and with minimal side effects or downtime."
According to the manufacturer, the Liposonix device uses a special technology called High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. By utilizing heat, the ultrasound energy induces a dual tissue response, resulting in the elimination of targeted fat and tightening of collagen in the treated areas. "The ultrasound technology used to melt the fat cells is the same as that used to tighten skin," says Dr. Power. "Patients lose an average of 1.5 to 2 inches off the waist with just a single one - hour treatment. The fat cells are destroyed and the body simply clears them away. Results are typically seen in 8-12 weeks. This is how long it takes for the body to naturally metabolize the destroyed fat tissue. The targeted fat cells are permanently destroyed, but surrounding fat cells can grow - the best way for patients to maintain their results is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Patients drop one dress or pant size on average."
"We are entering an era when problem body areas will be shrunk and tightened, all in one quick, non-invasive treatment," says Dr. Power.
