LipoSonix – Washington, D.C.
The Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery is the first practice in the Washington, DC Metro area to offer LipoSonix, a revolutionary, non-invasive way to eliminate unwanted fat bulges.The LipoSonix™ system is an FDA-cleared device that uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) energy to non-invasively reduce fat in the skin of the abdomen and flanks.
The LipoSonix™ system focuses the energy at a specific depth within the fat layer without harming the skin or surrounding tissue. The body then naturally processes and permanently removes the destroyed fat over a period of 8-12 weeks. A single treatment typically reduces waist circumference by approximately 1 inch.
A good candidate should have at least 1 inch of “pinchable” fat and a BMI (Body Mass Index ) of less than 30. The skin in the treatment areas should be free of scars and have good skin tone (not too “saggy”). The LipoSonix™ treatment is not intended for weight loss and can not be performed if you have a hernia in the area to be treated. Patients should not be taking anti-coagulants or other medications that impede coagulation or platelet aggregation.
If you are interested in noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction, please schedule a consultation at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, D.C. today.
