The LipoSonix system is an FDA-cleared device that uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to non-invasively treat fat tissue beneath the skin in the abdomen and flanks (“love handles”). The LipoSonix system focuses HIFU energy at a specific depth within the fat tissue without harming the skin or surrounding tissue. The body then naturally processes and permanently removes the destroyed fat tissue over a period of 8 to 12 weeks.
The LipoSonix system focuses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) energy at a specific depth within the fat tissue. The heat produced by HIFU energy also leads to collagen contraction and tightening of the skin, contouring the body shape.
