Using sound waves to melt the fat
LipoSonix is used for body contouring. It reduces fat volume by focusing high-intensity ultrasound energy on the problem-area, causing no harm to the skin or surrounding tissue and organs, while disrupting fat cells. Once these have been broken down, one of the body’s debris-collection systems, macrophages, rid the body of these cells. As the fat is disposed of, patients begin to notice a marked decrease in local fat volume.
