Liposonix is an amazing new device that can reduce fat entirely without surgery and in one easy treatment. Liposonix works by focusing a high-energy beam of ultrasound down to a point below the skin. For it to work properly, at least one inch of fat thickness is required. Although one inch does not seem like a lot, many people considering liposuction for specific areas do not have even that much. On the other hand, Liposonix is great for someone with a moderate amount of fat who does not want to undergo liposuction surgery and does not want even a day of downtime. If you consider that with one or two Liposonix treatments, you may equal liposuction results, without any penetration of the skin at all, then the argument in favor of Liposonix is quite compelling. Although Liposonix works just as well if you have a lot of fat, since only a pre-determined thickness of fat is removed with one treatment, results may not be as marked as with one liposuction treatment which does not have such limits. In such cases, another treatment after 12 weeks would be expected to yield additional benefits. Another advantage of Liposonix is that if you are not a good surgical candidate due to medical problems, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, you are probably still a candidate for Liposonix. Unlike the near-instant gratification with liposuction, 8-12 weeks are required for the fat to be completely removed from the body.
