Pinch an inch for Liposonix


Liposonix nonivasive fat reduction uses focused ultrasound, and the focal depth is about a half inch deep and a half inch thick. There needs to be at least an inch of thickness in the treated area for it to be an option. If you have been examined by someone who does Liposonix and told that you don't have enough, then it is probably true. Unfortunately skin laxity is a tough issue to treat, but options would inlcude Thermage or some types of laser treatments.
