In 2013, people in Minnesota are very excited in the new non-surgical fat reduction alternatives to liposuction. Liposonix is an amazing technology for non-surgical fat reduction available in Minnesota now, and it can reduce fat entirely without surgery and without down time.
Liposonix is a great addition for body contouring in Minnesota that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to disrupt adipocytes percutaneously. It delivers energy across the skin surface at a relatively low intensity, but brings this energy to a sharp focus in the subcutaneous fat. At the skin surface, the intensity of the ultrasound energy is low enough so that no damage occurs. The focusing of the ultrasound beam at specific depths beneath the epidermis, combined with proprietary application techniques, results in adipose tissue disruption. Once adipocytes have been disrupted, chemotactic signals activate the body’s inflammatory response mechanisms. Macrophage cells are attracted to the area to engulf and transport the lipids and cell debris. This results in an overall reduction in local adipose tissue volume. Some fat acids released from the damaged fat cells are probably cleared through lymphatic system. The clinical and histologic studies show exactly what happens under the skin. The histologies show clearly that adipocytes are disrupted by HIFU. The pathologies show the melting lesions in the fat tissue, but they are always at a safe distance from dermis or the epidermis. The correlation between focal depth, energy levels, and clinical results is evident. The average circumference reduction after treatment of the abdomen and waist is 1 inch or more. Liposonix also helps to tighten skin by its ultrasound thermal effect, which adds the benefit in body contouring.
Liposonix is a safe and effective technology for nonsurgical body sculpting by reduction of fat deposits. Shu Cosmetic Surgery encourages people in the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas to try it by offering 50% discount for the 2nd area from April to June.
