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 targeted fat cells 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 maintenance 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 body contouring 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 skin tightening 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 differ between each individual as we are all unique. In our experience, most patients see results between 4 and twelve weeks.

What Happens to the Targeted Fat Cells After Being Exposed to the High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Energy?

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 body 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 a 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 any fatty tissue 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.

Who Is a Suitable Candidate for Liposonix?

Prospective patients ought to be close to their ideal body weight, with a BMI < 30, but have specific, stubborn areas of fat accumulation they wish to address that a good diet and consistent exercise routine have not solved.

During your consultation, your doctor will evaluate if you are a good candidate, or recommend another approach for your areas of concern.

What Occurs During the Liposonix Procedure?

The procedure takes an hour or a little more, depending on the size of the treatment area. You’ll be given some pain medication before the procedure, so you’ll need someone to drive you home afterwards.

Your physician will first mark out the areas of the body to target on your skin. Then, the Liposonix system handheld device is applied to the surface of your skin and moved over your abdomen and flanks.

It heats tissue in your subcutaneous fat 1.3 cm below the skin’s surface, and you may feel mild discomfort, warmth, or tingling; however, treatment should not damage your skin or surrounding tissues.

How Long Is the Liposonix Recovery?

Post-treatment recovery downtime is minimal, and you can return to your normal activities quickly. Expect bruising, which could be extensive, and for all treated areas to be swollen and sore. Some of these side effects generally subside over the course of a week, though some RealSelf members say it took over two weeks for the bruising and soreness to dissipate. A few also said they experienced itching beneath the skin.

You can resume your regular exercise routine after one week of the Liposonix treatment.

The next 3 months is a time in which the body’s natural healing process will gradually process out the destroyed fat cells. Although the treated fat tissue is destroyed permanently, some of the patients undergo a second session of treatment in order to achieve full satisfaction. While the destroyed fat cells can’t grow back, the remaining fat cells in the treated area can expand if you gain weight. You’ll need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep up your results long-term.

What Are the Pros and Cons of Liposonix?

Pros

  • Liposonix works through the use of HIFU technology; therefore, this method is way less invasive compared to liposuction and most fat-reducing surgeries.
  • The manufacturer claims that, on average, the reduction in the size of the waistline is about 1 inch after just one single treatment hour.
  • There is minimal downtime and no risk of lumpiness or uneven reduction, as can occur in liposuction.

Cons

  • In truth, you need to be close to your ideal body weight in order to be a good candidate for Liposonix since it only treats pockets of stubborn fat. A majority of RealSelf members rated Liposonix as being not worth it, with slightly more than half saying it was worth it. Those who did not think it was worth it mentioned severe pain during the procedure, side effects such as severe bruising, itching, and swelling, and minimal results.
  • You will need to wait until your body naturally eliminates these dead fat cells, which can be up to three months after, before your final results are actually visible. From there, you can choose to have another treatment session to reach your desired body weight.

I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

I have seen Jane a few times for my skin tag removal and it’s been an absolute amazing service!! She’s been super calming and helped me every step and if I had any tension it was gone in a minute or so, she get rid of all the issues super quick and pain free and has been super helpful with the healing process afterwards too.
