Liposonix® is a safe, non-surgical alternative to liposuction that permanently reduces unsightly fat bulges. It is a revolutionary treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to treat any area where you can pinch at least an inch of fat. In clinical studies, the average waistline reduction was one inch, which typically corresponds to one dress or pant size, however individual results may vary.
With Liposonix, we are not limited to treating certain body areas and you do not require multiple treatments – if an area has at least an inch of excess fat it can be treated. The Liposonix system is highly versatile allowing Custom Contouring of various body types and sizes.

Common Questions About Liposonix®
How Does Liposonix work?
The Liposonix system uses high-intensity focused ultrasound at a precise depth (1.3 cm) to target unwanted fat cells without harming the skin or surrounding tissues and organs. The heat generated by the ultrasound destroys the targeted fat cells. The destroyed tissue and released triglycerides are engulfed and removed by the body’s immune system. Adipocytes that are destroyed in the treated area are no longer available to store fat. The destroyed fat cells do not come back.
Is Liposonix right for me?
To be considered a good candidate for Liposonix you should be in good overall health with a body mass index (BMI) less than 30. The area that you would like to treat needs to have at least one inch of pinchable fat.
What areas can be treated with Liposonix?
Liposonix can be used to treat areas such as the abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs, outer thighs, and arms.
What can I expect DURING my Liposonix treatment?
During the treatment, the Liposonix treatment head is moved around the area being treated, and treatments typically last between 30 – 90 minutes. During the treatment, you may feel some discomfort such as a cold, prickling, tingling, or burning sensation. Over the counter pain medications are usually sufficient to tolerate the procedure. For sensitive patients, stronger medication can be prescribed.
What can I expect AFTER my Liposonix treatment?
Over the next several weeks, your body naturally processes and removes the destroyed fat cells. Post treatment, you may experience some minor discomfort, bruising, redness, and swelling, which can last a few days. Less frequently, patients can experience soreness that can last for a few weeks, or a slight change in sensation in the area that was treated for up to eight weeks.
When can I expect to see results?
Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks (which is the time needed for the body to naturally process the treated fat). Liposonix is not liposuction or surgery, is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and exercise, and is not a way to lose weight.
What other body contouring options are available?
Finesse Cosmetic Laser & Lipo Center also offers various other methods to reduce fat including minimally invasive procedures such as SmartLipo laser liposuction for people who want more substantial fat reduction. CoolSculpting® is another non-surgical option that permanently eliminates fat using a freezing technique.
