Minimally invasive fat loss treatments are becoming a great option for busy office workers who prefer quick and painless ways to lose their stubborn pockets of fat. Such treatments, like Liposonix, can be a very feasible way to get rid of the unwanted fat.
Often known as the non-surgical version of Liposuction, Liposonix makes use of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) energy to kill off fat cells on your body. The body would then absorb those dead cells through its natural healing processes, leaving you with a slimmer waistline.
This treatment is revolutionary because the focused energy only kills off the fat cells in the area, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. As the treatment affects fat cells using ultrasonic energy, there are no incisions made on the skin, making the treatment minimally invasive.
A minimally invasive treatment has many advantages over invasive surgical procedures. Patients will not need to spend time recuperating after the procedure; they can resume their everyday life immediately after leaving the clinic. They will also avoid the ‘post-anaesthesia hangover’ – a woozy feeling a patient may feel after being injected with general anaesthesia. The treatment also takes place in a very short time: you’ll be in and out of the clinic within an hour.
Before your first treatment, you will have a one-on-one consultation with Dr Elias Tam, the resident doctor of EHA Clinic. Dr Tam has over 20 years of experience in medicine and would be the best person to address any queries or concerns you may have about this treatment. During the consultation, Dr Tam will explain to you how the treatment process works. Dr Tam can also advise you on whether this treatment is suitable for you; EHA also offers other cosmetic procedures that can reduce your waistline, such as Coolsculpting by Zeltiq.
Liposonix should not be used on tattooed skin, as the tattoos can affect the frequency and precision of the transmitted HIFU energy. Otherwise, Liposonix is safe on all skin types.
During your treatment, the Liposonix device will be used to deliver the HIFU energy directly to the selected treatment areas. Liposonix is a versatile treatment that can target different areas of the body, with the most common being the abs, thighs, hips, flanks and buttocks.
With Liposonix, you will only need one treatment to see dramatic results. The full results of the treatment should be visible within 12 weeks, but some patients see an improvement in their waistline much sooner. While most patients can get their desired result after a single session of Liposonix, some may return for multiple treatments to help them lose more fat.
Besides Liposonix, EHA Clinic also offers other fat removal procedures, such as Coolsculpting by Zeltiq, which uses extreme cold to freeze off fat cells.
Liposonix is a very effective fat removal procedure. It is approved for use in Singapore’s aesthetic clinics and is offered by EHA Clinic. Contact us at 6235 3325 today to enquire about Liposonix.
