Stephen Horwitz, located in Aventura Florida, is now offering the latest technological advancement in fat reduction technology. Treatments with the Liposonix system, which uses targeted ultrasound energy to eliminate fat cells without damage surface skin, reduces an inch of fat for most patients. Unlike other fat removal methods, Liposonix is non-surgical, typically requires only one treatment, and lets people get back to their daily routine immediately after treatment.
What sets Liposonix apart is its high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology. With many other non-invasive fat reduction technologies, such as radiofrequency and lasers, energy is highly absorbed or scattered near the skin surface, thereby limiting penetration into subcutaneous fat tissue and delivering only temporary results. Ultrasound energy, on the other hand, can be used to penetrate through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissues.
Other ultrasound body contouring technologies often use low-intensity, low-frequency, or unfocused energy which can require multiple treatments and lead to unpredictable results. The Liposonix system uses HIFU energy to permanently destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver uniform, predictable results after a single one-hour treatment.
"I'm excited about the new Liposonix system and helping patients rid themselves of that final last stubborn inch of fat around the waistline or abdomen," says Dr. Horwitz, "The results we see after just one sixty-minute treatment have been dramatic."
Liposonix is ideal for patients in the South Florida area who are close to their ideal size and shape, but need help losing the last bit of fat where diet and exercise won't work. Before treatment, all patients will require a consultation to determine if they are a candidate for this revolutionary new non-invasive fat reduction procedure. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks, after the body has naturally eliminated the fat cells destroyed by Liposonix treatment.
