How to Trim Your Body in 60 Minutes

If you are my Facebook friend or Twitter and Instagram follower, I’m sure you remember that I’ve posted about  Liposonix about a week back. For those who have no idea what Liposonix is, well, Liposonix is revolutionary non-invasive, non-surgical spot reduction treatment.1

Having heard so much about the treatment from my fellow beauty bloggers, I decided to play paparazzi a little bit with some of my blogger friends and find out what it is really all about.

And so we went to the Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre last week. It’s located in Jalan Tun Razak, and us bloggers were welcomed by a team of staff and were briefed by Dr. Karen Po on various cosmetic procedures, and that includes Liposonix and Thermage treatment.

So, what is Liposonix? Well, according to Dr. Karen Po, Liposonix is safe, non-surgical and non-invasive treatment with Custom Contouringâ„¢ capabilities which target and eliminate fat. The revolutionary treatment uses high-intensity focused ultrasound to treat & eliminate stubborn fat. It is a treatment best for people close to their ideal size & shape – used when diet & exercise no longer work. In other words, it’s a long-term solution for a lean, trim body.

After the short briefing, we were brought into the treatment room.

Don’t mistake liposonix for liposuction, yeah. This treatment a solution for those who wants a major weight loss. Liposonix treatment helps “get that last inch”, an alternative for patients who need significant fat reduction but do not want invasive surgeries that’s usually associated with high-costs, surgical risks and side effects. Liposonix works best for those targeting love handles and fat around the waist. Patients need to be able to “pinch-an-inch” of fat in the treatment area. Patients need to be in overall good health with a BMI equivalent or less than 30.

During our visit, Dr. Karen Po demonstrated how the treatment was done. First, the treatment head of the Liposonix system is placed on the targeted area.Then, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy focuses on the targeted fat and destroys the fat cells under the layers of the skin. A continuous lesion is created on the targeted fat and no harm is done to the skin layers.

Some of my Facebook friends asked me where did the fat go since the fat was not sucked away via tube? Well, here’s an answer to that question; the fat tissues will be removed through the body’s natural healing and elimination process. There is no need for multiple treatments to see results. On average, a single hour-long treatment results in a waistline reduction of 1 inch (2.5 cm) – about one dress or pant size.

The final effect may vary with each patient. However, results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks, which is the time needed for the body to naturally process the treated fat.

Apart from the Liposonix treatment, we were also introduced to a face contouring treatment known as Thermage. Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to non-invasively help smooth, and contour the skin, as well as temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite, in a single treatment with little to no downtime. The Thermage Total Tip is effective for facial treatments because it delivers uniform, volumetric bulk heating. This heat is dispersed through the vascular structures, which are more abundant on the face than other body areas. This dispersal and uniformity of energy may lead to increased patient tolerability and allows practitioners to deliver an efficient volume of heat on the face, with highly positive outcomes.
