Liposonix: Q&AAsk a Question

TruSculpt is the newest of the non-invasive fat technologies and I prefer it because it uses uniform heating of the fat using RF technology and can be applied evenly. It works really well on thinner patients also which coolsculpting cannot do becuase there is not enough fat to pinch into the handpiece. TruSculpt is a one hour treatment with no pain unlike some of the other treatments and it really works well.
Although both Liposonix and cool sculpting are both effective in destroying fat cells, the superior technology of high frequency focused ultrasound in Liposonix allows for more exact treatment of specific areas of fat. Prior to purchasing this system, I did research both machines and spoke to doctors in other states that had both systems but preferred liposonix treatment over the cool sculpting.
Before purchasing the Liposonix system, we researched alternative non-invasive treatments. I am glad that I waited for the introduction of the Liposonix system to the United States. For non-invasive contouring,the Liposonix system, in my opinion, is superior.
Both procedures are nonivasive methods of permanently reducing localized fat, and the abdomen is the most commonly treated area. Liposonix is usually done in a single session, and because it uses focused ultrasound the treatment can be mapped out with precision, Coolsculpting (Zeltiq) is more of bulk reduction with an area rather than a specific layer of fat. What both teatments have in common is that there is a period of a few weeks to months to see the final effect.
