The Liposonix nonsurgical fat removal device from Solta Medical is now available in the United States. The device uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to permanently destroy fat cells 1cm to 2cm below the surface of the skin. Results become visible two to three months following the procedure. Clinical studies demonstrated an average 2.6cm reduction in waist circumference following a single Liposonix treatment. “Liposonix is a significant advance for people who want a safe, effective and convenient way to get rid of that last unwanted inch around the waist,” says Anne Chappas, MD, director of Union Square Laser Dermatology and assistant clinical professor at New York University School of Medicine.
