Liposonix®: “Custom Contouring™”
"1 treatment | 1 hour | 1 size smaller™"
Liposonix® is a non-surgical treatment that helps men and women take control and achieve a body shape that is more ideal for them. Developed for people who lead a healthy lifestyle by eating right and exercising, but still have “an inch to pinch” around their waist, Liposonix® is the non-invasive way to conveniently whittle down that last stubborn inch. Scientifically proven, the hour-long treatment leaves behind the desired slimmer, more contoured waistline. Those with more than one inch to lose will still benefit but may want more than one treatment.
The Liposonix® system is the go-to solution that is clinically proven to effectively get rid of that unwanted inch around the waist or those love handles, giving men and women an added boost of confidence in their shape. Unlike other non-invasive fat reduction treatments, Liposonix® is a custom contouring solution designed to selectively target and permanently destroy unwanted fat tissue around the waist.
By using advanced high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology, Liposonix® destroys fat below the skin in one hour-long treatment. Over a period of 8-12 weeks, the body naturally processes and removes the fat tissue.

How Liposonix® Works
Liposonix® penetrates and destroys the fat found beneath the skin, using advanced high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology to create a focal zone of heating, resulting in a dual tissue response: thermal destruction of targeted fat cells and contraction/thickening of subcutaneous collagen and tightening of elastin. A unique pattern delivery system within the treatment head delivers the energy in a controlled, consistent manner. Targeted fat cells are permanently destroyed without harming the skin, and the body naturally processes and removes the fat tissue over a period of 8 to 12 weeks.
A single treatment results in an average reduction of one dress or pant size (1 inch). Clinical studies showed an average waist circumference reduction of approximately 2.6 cm (1 inch) after a single Liposonix® treatment.
How is Liposonix® different from Coolsculpting (Zeltiq)?
• Liposonix® results are smooth; Coolsculpting often leaves lumpy results.
• Liposonix® generates heat to destroy fat. Coolsculping freezes fat.
• Liposonix® tightens the overlying skin. Coolsculpting does not tighten skin.
• Liposonix® actually sculpts the treated area. Coolsculpting does not sculpt; it destroys blocks of fat.
What is the Liposonix® system?
The Liposonix® system uses non-invasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to get rid of fat on the body without surgery.
What are the typical results of the procedure?
Individual results and office visit time may vary among patients, but on average, a single treatment around the waist results in an average reduction of one pant or dress size (1 inch or 2.6 cm).
When will I see results?
Most patients see maximum results in 8 to 12 weeks. This is how long it takes for the body to naturally metabolize the destroyed fat tissue. The targeted fat cells are permanently destroyed, but surrounding fat cells can grow if a person overeats. The best way for patients to maintain their results is to stick with a healthy lifestyle.
Can I get a Liposonix® treatment instead of liposuction?
The Liposonix® treatment can help you lose one dress or pant size without surgery, but a single procedure may not produce the same dramatic fat reduction associated with surgical liposuction. Dr. Cadoux or his staff would be happy to discuss the different approaches with you during your free consultation.
Can I get a Liposonix® treatment if I’ve already had other procedures?
If you have had surgery or have scars in the treatment area, Liposonix® may still be right for you. Liposonix® is not used directly over scars but can be used adjacent to scars. We encourage you to make an appointment for a free consultation so we can discuss your specific situation.
Is the Liposonix® treatment safe?
The Liposonix® system has more than a decade of research and testing behind its development. The treatment has a well-defined safety profile.
Are there any side effects?
After treatment, you may experience temporary redness, bruising, some discomfort, and swelling. The skin over the treated area may be mildly sensitive for several weeks.
What does the Liposonix® treatment feel like?
During treatment, you may experience discomfort, pain, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth. Oral pain medication is often used for the procedure. After treatment, you may have temporary redness, bruising, some discomfort and swelling.
How long does the treatment take?
Typically a Liposonix® treatment of the abdomen and flanks is completed in about one hour. This may vary depending on the treatment area and your specific needs.
Will this treatment leave saggy folds in my skin?
This is unlikely. The Liposonix® treatment actually tightens the skin and does not produce the saggy skin that you often find with surgical liposuction procedures or Coolsculpting treatments.
Will the treatment leave an uneven or lumpy looking result?
Unlike many liposuction procedures, the Liposonix® treatment produces smooth results due to its unique, advanced delivery technology. No cases of uneven or lumpy results have been reported.
What will I need to do after the Liposonix® treatment?
There are no special requirements. However, post-treatment care is at the discretion of your healthcare professional. Patients are informed they may resume regular activities right away. Patients are advised to maintain (if not improve) the same diet and exercise routine they observed before treatment – but they don’t need to change these things for the treatment to work.
Who are the potential candidates?
The Liposonix® treatment is for patients who want to reduce stubborn fat and who do not want to undergo surgery. Men as well as women can benefit from the treatment. The Liposonix® treatment is not a means of weight reduction or a replacement for a healthy lifestyle.
