Liposonix is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy (HIFU) to permanently destroy fat cells. The first step of the procedure involves marking the specific part of the body to be treated with the use of a surgical pen. Next, the Liposonix device is directed at the targeted area by focusing high-intensity ultrasound waves to the areas impacted by excess fat. The ultrasound energy penetrates the fat layers 1-2cm below the surface of the skin. Over the next eight to 12 weeks, the natural healing process of the body eliminates the disrupted fat cells.
