Liposonix® Slimming & Fat Loss Treatment
Liposonix® is a safe, non-invasive aesthetic treatment and method of fat loss which has been approved by US FDA authorities especially for waist reduction (https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/cdrh_docs/pdf10/K100874.pdf). Although the technology is widely utilized to treat fat loss around the waist, it is also used to treat pockets of fat elsewhere around the body.
Other areas treated by Liposonix® for fat loss:
- Thighs and calves
- Love handles
- Bra bulges
However, not everyone’s body is the same and not everyone has a large volume of fat that can fit into those devices. This is where Liposonix® comes into play.
With a hand piece area of 5 x 5 cm, Liposonix® can treat any area of fats which have at least a volume of 5cm x 5cm x 2.5cm(1 inch). We all know about those small stubborn bra-bulges or underarm fats, which can now be treated by Liposonix® effectively.
It is also suitable for those fit individuals with just small pockets of fat on the tummy and love handles, who wish to get that nice contour.
Is Liposonix® suitable for both men and women?
Throughout the years this technology has been used to treat deposits of fats located on bodies of both males and females. Men and women who are too busy to get rid of that last pouch of fat on their bodies. Even after working out and following strict diets in the past.
Somehow if there still are pockets of fats on the body, this machine can be used to treat, and blast away fats, the results though take longer than the more permanent and immediate method of fat removal, liposuction.
People from all walks of life utilize this advanced radiofrequency technology to break through barriers of fats.

What makes Liposonix® effective in removing fats?
Other fat reduction technologies, such as radiofrequency and lasers are often ineffective because the energy is highly absorbed or scattered near the skin surface.
This limits the penetrative power of the device and thus fails to successfully address fatty deposits beneath the skin.
However, the device, uses ultrasound energy, which effectively penetrates through the skin layers and into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissues.
Other ultrasound body contouring technologies often use low-intensity, low-frequency, or unfocused energy which can require multiple treatments and lead to unpredictable results.
The system uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to non-invasively destroy targeted subcutaneous fat and deliver uniform, predictable results after a single one-hour treatment.
5 Frequently Asked Questions About Fat Reduction
- Are weight loss treatments safe?
The safety of treatment with the Liposonix® system was assessed through 24 weeks post-treatment. There were no serious adverse events or unanticipated adverse device effects related to treatment with the investigational device.
- Is the treatment painful?
Almost all patients report experiencing no pain. Liposonix® by its nature is completely non-invasive. During the treatment you may experience certain sensations on your skin, these include pricks, tingles and temperature changes varying from warm to cold.
- How does Liposonix® really work?
The Liposonix® fat loss device focuses high-intensity ultrasound energy at a precise point (1.3 cm) within the targeted fatty tissue in the body without harming the skin or surrounding tissues and organs. This causes thermal coagulation of fats.
The destroyed molecules of fats are gobbled up and processed by your body’s macrophages that are drawn to the treated area by certain biochemical signals. The lipid-laden macrophages then move through the lymphatic system to the liver, where the lipids are processed by the body’s natural biochemical pathways.
Adipocytes that are destroyed in the treated area are no longer available to store fat.
- I would like to view before and after pictures of this treatment, how do I do that?
To view successful Liposonix® cases (before and after pictures) you would be required to visit a clinic personally, this is due to impositions by the Ministry of Health upon all private clinics and hospitals in Singapore.
- What is the price of a treatment?
The cost of Liposonix® is calculated on a “per session and per area” basis. Each session may be focused on targeting several areas of your body. Therefore in order to find out the fees associated with this procedure, the best way is to discuss it directly with the surgeon.
