Liposonix Vs Zeltiq. Which is a Better Permanant Fat Removal for Belly and Love Handles? And Prices.

Liposonix vs. Zeltiq for fat pad reduction


Both Liposonix and Zeltiq or Coolsculpt are approved by the FDA for fat pad reduction. Both offer intriguing technology where high intensity high fluence ultrasound in Liposonix permanently melt away fat layer an inch beneath the skin vs. destruction of fat cells via a process call cryolipolysis where fat tissues are frozen between applicators. While both devices can achieve reduction of a dress/pant size or more in 3 months, Liposonix may offer better body contouring and less demarcation of treated areas.

Liposonix for belly and love handles


Both Liposonix and Zeltiq are FDA approved technologies to reduce localized fat. I have researched both technologies and even had treatments with both devices prior to purchasing Liposonix.  With Liposonix, the treatment area is defined by where your fat is located rather than what can fit into the suction device. Hope this helps.

Liposonix vs Zeltiq Coolsculpting for nonivasive body shaping


Both Liposonix and Zeltiq are FDA approved technologies for noninvasive localized fat reduction in a single treatment. Liposonix used focused ultrasound so it can be targeted to specific layers and areas with precision. Zeltiq can only be used where the fat layer can be pinched between 2 paddles, and it may take a few sessions to get all areas desired.

We have tested both.


At our clinic in Alpharetta, Georgia, USA, we have tested both the Zeltiq and Liposonix devices. We found the Zeltiq results to be a disappointment. However, our patients are very happy with Liposonix.
