Liposonix® uses ultrasound, but at a higher intensity and deeper penetration. The ability to penetrate deeper allows selective destruction of fat cells. After the procedure, the fat cells that have been treated will slowly dissolve and are absorbed by the body and naturally excreted out. Most patients will start to see results at approximately 8 weeks but many report that it can take 4 months or longer. Liposonix® is also non-invasive, so patients can resume normal activity on the same day. It can be painful so normally patients are sedated and given pain medication to help tolerate the procedure.
