Aura Skin Spa now offers our patients help with that stubborn fat on their waistline with LipoSonix®. This non-surgical method of fat reduction utilizes advanced ultrasound technology to destroy unwanted fat.

What Are The Benefits Of LipoSonix®?

This new innovation in fat reduction is used to reduce stubborn fat around the abdomen and waist. Patients notice improvements after a single one-hour session and are enthused by the procedure because it is totally non-invasive and has no recovery time.

How Does LipoSonix® Work?

Using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy, subcutaneous fat cells are disrupted and then eliminated, improving body contour. Here is how the LipoSonix® system works:

  • fat_sonix_s1

    1. The head of the device is placed over the treatment site.

  • fat_sonix_s2

    2. HIFU energy is targeted to the treatment area, beginning a process that leads to the destruction of fat cells underneath the outer surface of the skin.

  • fat_sonix_s3

    3. Once hit with the HIFU energy, the targeted fat forms a lesion while the surface skin is unharmed.

  • fat_sonix_s4

    4. The body then eliminates these fat lessions through its natural elimination and healing mechanisms. The result is a thinner waistline and a more contoured figure.

What Is HIFU Technology And How Does It Work?

Other non-invasive fat reduction techniques use lasers and radio frequency energy. The energy emitted with these technologies can be absorbed by the cells on the skin surface. This creates two problems. First, it limits the energy that penetrates the targeted fat tissues below the skin surface. Second, it can inflame and damage the surface skin. In contrast, LipoSonix® treatments use high-intensity, focused, ultrasound energy to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and reach the targeted fat tissue without affecting the surrounding tissues or the skin layers.

Am I A Good Candidate For LipoSonix?®

Although LipoSonix® has promising results, not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure. If you are close to your ideal weight, but have unwanted fat around your waist that you’ve been unable to get rid of with diet and exercise, then LipoSonix® may be the right procedure for you. Generally, you are a good candidate for the procedure if:

1. You are able to pinch about an inch (2.5 cm) of fat at your waistline.

2. Your body mass index is less than or equal to 30.

3. You are in good overall health.

4. You are realistic with your expectations of the outcomes of the treatment.

What Results Can I Expect From My LipoSonix®Procedure?

Results from the procedure usually become noticeable after 8 to 12 weeks, which is typically the amount of time needed for the body to process and eliminate the targeted fat.

Schedule an appointment with us at the Aura Skin Spa to see if LipoSonix® is right for you! It could be the perfect way to get rid of that stubborn waistline fat, without surgery.
