Welcome to the newest generation of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) devices- a non-surgical option, exclusive to medical clinics, for the safe removal of unwanted fat cells.

Health Canada approved for treatment of localised fat deposits of

  • Abdomen
  • Waist and flanks (love handles & muffin top)
  • Hips & Buttocks
  • Thighs (saddle bags, inner thighs, banana roll beneath the buttocks)

The Liposonix device generates high intensity ultrasound beams that are brought to a focus at a predetermined depth below the skin surface, causing a localised rise in temperature, which in turn destroys the targeted fat cells, ablating a band of fatty tissue about 0.8cms in width. These damaged fat cells are then ‘mopped up’ by white cells over the next 8-12 weeks, as the fat cells are flushed out, the treated area undergoes shrinkage.

Studies of 200 cases revealed an average waist reduction of 1 inch (some persons noting reductions of up to 5cms) with one treatment. A second treatment can be carried out if required at 12 weeks.

Treatment is performed in office

Ideal candidates for treatment are

  • at or near their ideal body weight, with localized fat deposits in the above areas
  • the adipose tissue to be treated  must be at least 1 inch thick
  • do not have any large surgical scars in the proposed treatment area
  • do not have rolls of fat in the treatment zone
