Liposonix is a new, state-of-the-art fat reduction device in Minnesota that can remove fat without surgery. Liposonix system uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy that penetrates through the skin layers and into the targeted fat without harming the skin or surrounding tissues. The destroyed fat can be removed by the body’s natural metabolic processes. Liposonix is FDA approved for the removal of fat deposits in the abdominal area but is proving to be equally effective in other areas of the body, such as the flanks and thighs.
Liposonix is different from the liposuction procedures. Liposonix is completely non-surgical, and it doesn’t have the surgical complications as those in liposuction.
Liposonix does cause pain with the original protocol in some patients, but we use a painless protocol. Our patients in Minneapolis and St Paul don’t have any pain during treatment with our pain management protocol. You can see slight bruise and swelling following the procedure as the body adjusts to remove the “waste” fat cells. Destruction of the unwanted fat cells is permanent. Most patients are able to return to normal activities – including work – on the same day and resume full exercise regimens within a week.
