Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Treatments Options
If you can pinch an inch then you might be able to do either Liposonix or Coolsculpting, both are non-surgical body contouring options. Liposonix uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound to destruct the fat, while Coolsculpting utilizes cold to destruct the fat. With Liposonix you can lose approximately 1 inch in 1 hour with 1 treatment. With Coolsculpting you can lose about 20%/30% of the fat treated. Either option is not going to yield immediate results as the body has to naturally remove the treated fat. This generally takes 8-12 weeks to be completed. Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see which option is best for you.
The Answer May Be Both
In our office at Key Laser we have had considerable experience with both Liposonix and CoolSculpting.The answer here is easy, the ultrasound energy of Liposonix can reflect off of bone, making treatment over bony areas, such as the ribs a lot more uncomfortable, whereas, with CoolSculpting, this is perhaps the easiest and most comfortable area to treat.The recommendation (1) CoolSculpting for the Bra Fat and Love Handles and (2) Liposonix or CoolSculpting for the Abdomen.
