Waistline Reduction with Liposonix Treatment at SL ClinicWednesday, January 06, 2016
I have received a lot of love this Christmas and New Year, and while I treasure the care from loved ones, there is another type of l...
What is Liposonix?
Liposonix treatment has 10 years of research and testing behind its development. It has a well-defined safety profile during and after treatment with very good patient satisfaction, and it has been available in Europe, Japan and Canada for several years. It was available in the US starting in January 2012.
Is it the same as Liposuction? (i.e. sucking fat out of the body)
It can help you lose one dress or pant size without surgery, but if you are looking for crazy huge reductions associated with surgical liposuction, then please do have a consultation with the doctor to talk about your specific situation. However, the great news is that it does not have the uneven or lumpy results that you see from Liposuction, nor saggy skin. It is also customizable to address specific problem areas.
Why SL Clinic?Dr Gabriel was very professional, yet really sweet and gentlemanly. His easy-going demeanor makes it a breeze to share your concerns without feeling shy or insecure and he dispenses sincere, genuine advice. I would highly encourage everyone to give him a call for consultation. After all, having treated many patients with Liposonix, Dr Gabriel knows what is best for you. You can also rest assured that the cost for Liposonix at SL Clinic is the lowest per treatment area.
What is my main area of concern?
Dr Gabriel said that the treatment is ideal for active healthy individuals who have at least 1 inch or 2.5 cm of fat to lose in their abdomen or flanks, and there are noticeable results after just one treatment. I was definitely excited to say "bye bye" to this side view..... permanently!
What is the treatment like?
And let me be upfront here - there will be discomfort. This is, after all, fat-busting using advanced technology. But as they say - no pain, no gain. To get rid of stubborn fats that are literally so difficult to remove, this is really the least amount of effort. Yes, it is worth it!
The intensity of the Liposonix ultrasound energy will also be adjusted according to your threshold - the highest intensity was used on me as my threshold for pain is relatively high. The areas that gave a greater tingle were the sides of the lower abdomen but the rest of the areas were less of an issue for me, thankfully.
How long will it take before I see results?
It has been 8 weeks since I did the treatment ,and guess what, I already physically felt the results in week 6 when I realised that I could zip up my skirt and pants easily (I could not even pull the zipper up fully last time!)
Do I need to do any special post-care?
For those of you who have stubborn fat that you wish to get rid of without having to undergo surgery, Liposonix treatment is an alternative solution that you might want to consider.
