Liposonix in the Chicago Metro – Shape Back Non-surgically by Losing Some Inches

Liposonix® is a new fat treatment that can help you lose a few inches of fat that has failed to respond to routine exercise and healthy diet without going through a knife cut. This treatment can treat love handles or flanks, abdomen, hips and the waist area to create a trimmer look. This non-surgical treatment uses a device which delivers ultrasound energy to focused areas with unwanted fat just beneath the skin for custom contouring. This treatment is good only if you have a stable weight or closer to your ideal weight and want to lose a few inches of fat in your waist area. Most patients who have had the treatment have achieved an average of 1 inch or 2.5 cm circumferential waistline reduction. Liposonix fat treatment should be performed by board-certified aestheticians in accredited facilities or a doctor’s office. Skin Deep Medical Spa in the Chicago metro area is owned by Dr. Bloch. You can conveniently request an appointment at his facility at


Think about ultrasound energy like sunlight. A magnifying glass can focus sunlight to ignite paper. Above and below the point of focus, paper does not burn. In a similar manner, by focusing ultrasound energy, only fat near the focus point is injured. Your skin (above the focus point) and tissue (below the focus point) are protected. Your body then slowly absorbs the damaged fat. One or more treatments may be needed.

What happens during Liposonix®

Fat treatment with Liposonix takes 30 to 60 minutes. The treatment is performed while you are lying on a bed. After you undress your waist area, your aesthetician will mark out all areas that need treatment. Next, gel is applied to those areas. The marked areas are then pulsated with the handheld treatment head of the Liposonix® system. Your physician will be able to precisely monitor fatty areas on a monitor connected to the system. As the device is moved on your body, you will feel different levels of intensity. If any discomfort is experienced, you can inform your healthcare provider to adjust the temperature. Sensations of cold, tingling, pricking, heat or warmth are felt during treatment and are generally described as mild.

How is liposonix different?

Non-Surgical – Non-Invasive

Invasive fat reduction procedures, such as liposuction, typically carry certain surgical risks and are associated with significant post-treatment recovery downtime. Even newer, minimally-invasive techniques are still surgical procedures. Unlike these types of surgical fat reduction procedures, the Liposonix treatment is non-invasive and patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.

How is Liposonix® recovery?

Liposonix fat treatment has no downtime compared to invasive fat reduction procedures. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, redness and some discomfort. After 8 to 12 weeks, full results of Liposonix will be seen. This is the time when the body takes to metabolize the destroyed fat. Your physician will advise you if you need additional treatment sessions for a trimmer look. Poor lifestyle will destroy the good results.
