liposonix

Liposonix®

Permanently reduce and sculpt stubborn pockets of fat effectively and safely with this non-invasive treatment; if you’re close to your ideal shape, but need a little support in getting there, the Liposonix treatment may be for you. This treatment uses high-intensity focused ultrasound technology to get rid of targeted fat around your waistline without invasive surgery. Our non-surgical fat removal treatment is popular among clients.

At The Skin to Love Clinic we are able to draw upon a huge wealth of expertise and experience as one of our practitioners is the trainer to other medical practitioners using the liposonix treatment in the UK and Europe.

 

Want to take the next step?

Liposonix is an FDA approved treatment which allows us to truly customise the treatment for you and your concerns by letting your practitioner control precisely how and where the HIFU energy is delivered. The ultrasound energy targets subcutaneous fat without harming the surrounding tissues or skin; this energy destroys the fat in a uniformed and predictable manner because of its focused and high-intensity characteristics.

This is designed to be a single treatment however some patients may decide to have additional treatments if they wish to boost their results even further. The results of Liposonix are permanent; the fat cells that have been treated are permanently removed from your body.

Many areas can be treated with the Liposonix treatment, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs

Are there any side effects of Liposonix?

The Liposonix procedure has a good safety profile and at The Skin to Love Clinic we are able to draw upon a huge wealth of expertise and experience as one of our practitioners is the trainer to other medical practitioners using this laser in the UK and Europe.

Consultations are an important part of the treatment process in allowing you to understand the treatment and to establish if the benefits of the treatment are outweighed by any possible side effects. During a consultation, your characteristics, such as your medical background, the amount of unwanted fat and desired treatment area, will be assessed. Your medical practitioner will be able to discuss whether this treatment is appropriate for you, as well as any suitable alternative treatments.

Your practitioner will discuss any possible side effects, questions you may have and any aftercare you should adhere to prior to you having treatment.

How does the Liposonix treatment feel?

The discomfort level of this fat reduction treatment is mild to moderate; during the procedure you may feel sensations of cool and warmth, tingling or scratching. Some areas of the treatment site may be more uncomfortable than other areas; this is normal.

How will the treated area look after the Liposonix treatment?

Redness, mild swelling and bruising in the treatment area can occur post procedure. These effects naturally reduce within a few days, often hours following the treatment. However, bruising will last for as long as a bruise usually lasts for an individual. We recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing around the treated zone immediately after your session to improve your comfort further.

When will I see my results from the Liposonix treatment?

As with all treatments, results and how quickly you see them differs between each individual as we are all unique. In our experience, most patients see results between 4 and twelve weeks.

What happens to the fat after it’s treated with Liposonix?

Your body gradually and naturally gets rid of the treated fat cells safely by your forager cells which consume the treated fat cells and naturally eliminate them. Rigorous clinical testing demonstrates that there is no impact on liver function and will not migrate to other areas.

Will I lose weight after the Liposonix treatment?

This is not designed to be a weight-loss treatment. Liposonix fat reduction is designed to sculpt and remove stubborn pockets of fat to give you a more streamlined, svelte-looking figure.

During weight loss, the number of fat cells remains the same, but they shrink in size. The Liposonix HIFU technology permanently removes some of your fat cells in the treated area.

How many sessions of Liposonix will I need?

Liposonix is designed to be a single session treatment for those who are close to their ideal weight and who have stubborn pockets of fat they wish to remove.

Some of our patients opt to have repeat treatments in the same area if they are not quite at their ideal weight or if they simply want to boost their results further. You can discuss this fully with your practitioner and make a treatment plan during your consultation.

What’s the difference between Cool Sculpt and Liposonix?

Cool Sculpt treatment uses cryolipolysis technology, also known as ‘fat freezing’. We also use cripolipolysis technology in our Cristal treatment. The Liposonix treatment uses completely different technology, known as High-Intensity Focused-Ultrasound (HIFU).

During your Liposonix treatment your practitioner passes the treatment head over your treatment areas to accumulate a therapeutic level of HIFU energy to destroy your fat cells. During a cryolipolysis treatment a set area of fat is gently vacuumed by a treatment head and cooled to destroy your fat cells.

Both technologies are non-invasive and permanently destroy your fat cells.

What happens if I put on weight after my Liposonix treatment?

If you gain weight after you’ve been treated any remaining fat cells in the treated area, and generally throughout your body, may swell and increase in size. We always recommend that if you are considering this treatment you should make sure that you are at a stable weight and follow a healthy lifestyle.

“Knowledgeable, professional and friendly staff, great atmosphere. Great after care.” Poppy

“Excellent visit as always!” Karen

“The treatment I had was a little uncomfortable but Su put me at ease and made it bearable. Would definitely have treatment again” Gemma

“Loved Jane!! I wouldn’t have gone through with the treatment if I didn’t have that initial consultation with her. She was very knowledgeable and that helped my confidence” Addie

We offer a bespoke approach to treatment, tailored entirely to your needs and desires, therefore the cost of your individual treatment will be confirmed during your consultation following a thorough assessment.

I'm claustrophobic so didn't like having my eyes completely covered, however, Jane was so patient & understanding & dealt with the situation brilliantly so I could have the treatment. It was a so easy in the end, took minutes, & nothing to worry about at all.

I cannot recommend the team the innovation and treatments more highly than at the Skin To Love Clinic. They are at the cutting edge of beauty and have new ways and procedures that make your skin look beautiful. I've spent many years on Harley and Wimpole street and assumed you couldn't get this level of investment and treatments anywhere else but the Skin the Love clinic not only offer every top treatment but the Jane and Sue are so skillful and have a real eye for what will work for you. Their mini thread lift is incredible as is their 'vampire' treatment but skin since I have moved to St Albans has improved dramatically

I have several issues with my skin and have been working with my doctor to deal with them. He referred me to a Dermatologist who advised on the treatment I needed. It took me a while to find the right place with the level of expertise that I needed and The Skin to Love Clinic ticked all of the boxes. My first experience with The Skin to Love Clinic was about 2 years ago. I had a consultation with Jane and immediately knew I was in good hands. I had a series of Fraxel laser which dealt with the issue as well as improved the quality of my skin. I am now dealing with a different issue and without hesitation made an appointment with Jane. What a relief to know that once again, I will be in the best hands and get the most appropriate treatment for my skin, not only dealing with the issue but also improving the health of my skin at the same time.About 4 years ago, I had threads from a well known Clinic in Harley Street. The process was extremely painful, left me with a lot of bruising, a disfigured face and took at least 6 weeks to recover. For the first 1 - 2 weeks I could hardly open my mouth, getting my toothbrush into my mouth was painful.2 weeks ago (with much trepidation) I had threads at Skin to Love. The difference was remarkable. This is a cosmetic procedure so when the threads are inserted, there is some discomfort. However, it was a far cry from the extreme pain from the Harley Street clinic. I had 1 pale yellow bruise about the size of 50p, no disfiguration and went out for dinner that night! My face was tender to touch for about 1 week but definitely not painful. I could see the results straight away and as time passes, it gets better. Thank you Jane for being so patient with me. I was so scared but now know I didn't need to be.

First time trying Regenlite today. Nikki was helpful explaining the process and I noticed some immediate reduction in redness on my cheeks. Nikki also recommended my next treatment for thread veins. All in all the super friendly and knowledgeable service I’ve come to rely on at Skin to Love.

Exceptionally positive experience:* A consultation is required to determine whether the requested treatment is suitable for me. This reassured me of their expertise and integrity (that they wouldn't just push any treatment on me)* Specialist Jane is clearly an expert on the Clear&Brilliant treatment and provided me with a comprehensive insight in the procedure + follow-up care and answered all my questions* Tomorrow I'll receive a check-in call, which shows their level of attentiveness* Reception staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful* So far my Clear and Brilliant treatment looks good, will see results in 2-4 weeks

I made the mistake of buying a product called Eyesential; an under eye enhancer which temporarily erases puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles in minutes and lasts for up to 8 hours. I used this product for a period of 7 years. During this time, the skin under and around my eyes became thinner, reddened, chronically dry and intensely wrinkled. I thought there was nothing I could do and would be left like this. I felt so depressed. Then one day when I was in The Skin to Love Clinic having treatment for Laser Hair Removal; I was informed about Thermage for the very first time. I now have this procedure done yearly. Jane has brought my skin back to its original state and more. My confidence has come back and I feel a so much happier. This treatment really works!

Emma is so professional and kind. At an initial consultation with her on a viral wart on my face, Emma explained my options and the procedure carefully and thoroughly. Afterwards I tried various lotions and wart removal products, but to no avail. Three months later I saw Emma again. It only took her a few minutes to surgically remove my wart. It was done with such a precision that my skin has been recovering really quickly and well. I highly recommend Emma!

Would recommend, had a consultation by the nurse , very informative and all staff are extremely knowledgeable of their treatments. Not pushy in selling products or services , the look and feel of the store is very warm and welcoming. I am looking forward to getting treatments there.Update in 4/10/2021 - after going to mobile therapists and now here, I must say there is a big difference ! much much more professional and great customer service - I have had anti wrinkle injections and was reassured this will work and it has! ( I had deep frown lines) worth the bit of extra money for sure!
