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.
Liposonix is an amazing new non-surgical fat reduction device available in Minnesota, and it can reduce fat entirely without invasive surgery and in one easy treatment without down time. By focusing a high-energy beam of ultrasound down to a point in the fat layer below the skin, the Liposonix system is able to non-invasively destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver uniform and predictable results.
Which one should you choose – Liposonix vs liposuction? This is not a “to be or not to be” question for people in the Minneapolis and St Paul areas. If you are significantly overweight and BMI is more than 30, and you can afford to have at least 3 days down time, and you are looking for a better result with one treatment, you may choose liposuction. We have every cutting-edge liposuction technology in our Edina office to help you to achieve your goals.
Liposonix is the better option if you have any of the following conditions:
You have at least one inch of fat thickness in the target areas, but BMI is below 30. Although one inch does not seem like a lot, many people considering liposuction for specific areas do not have even that much.
You don’t want to undergo invasive liposuction surgery.
You don’t want even a day of downtime.
You are not a good surgical candidate due to medical problems, such as diabetes.
One or two effective treatments with Liposonix in the proper candidates, without surgery at all, may equal liposuction results, and then the argument in favor of Liposonix is quite compelling. Although Liposonix is very effective in fat reduction, 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. Therefore, you may consider another treatment after 3-6 months if you are looking for the similar result to liposuction without down time.
