San Francisco, California (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Today, California Skin Institute is announcing the latest addition to their extensive line of body sculpting treatments: Liposonix Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Treatment. Liposonix employs high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to permanently destroy targeted fat cells without the complications involved with surgery.
“This new procedure is an innovative and revolutionary solution for those who have stubborn areas of fat that just won’t go away despite exercise and dieting. Liposonix involves no surgery, and is ideal for those patients who are close to their ideal shape and are reluctant to undergo surgery. The procedure takes approximately one hour and, while individual results can vary, the average patient achieves a waistline reduction of approximately one inch (or one pant or dress size) within 8-12 weeks after receiving a single treatment,” said Dr. Greg Morganroth, the President and Founder of California Skin Institute.
The Liposonix system technology from Solta Medical, a global leader in the medical aesthetics market, was developed over a period of 10 years by leading scientists and ultrasound experts with more than 200 years of combined experience in the field of therapeutic and diagnostic ultrasound devices. It works by focusing ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin in order to heat only targeted fat tissue – similar to how light from the sun can be focused with a magnifying glass to create heat.
The treated fat tissue is removed through the body's natural healing process, leaving the patient with a thinner, more contoured waistline. Patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the Liposonix procedure and no special diet or exercise program is required in order to achieve results. Clinical studies of more than 200 patients, conducted using the Liposonix system, showed an average waist circumference reduction of approximately one inch (2.5 cm) at 12 weeks after a single Liposonix treatment.
“Our patients love Liposonix because it delivers results without the necessity of surgery or the risks associated with typical fat-reduction procedures. Liposonix is not liposuction, and it involves no invasive surgery whatsoever. However, as is the case with other fat-reduction procedures, it should not be considered a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and exercise, and it is not a way to lose weight. Liposonix is a quick, easy method for helping patients slim that last inch and hit their personal shape goals.”
