Fat Reduction: Liposonix and Coolsculpting

It’s a new year, which means new opportunities to meet personal goals and stick to that new years resolution.  While you, along with many others, will be headed back to the gym to start working on that beach body, we have even better options for eliminating those stubborn fat areas with Liposonix and Coolsculpting…..the countdown to one size smaller beings.

At WDC we have not only one, but TWO amazing options for treating stubborn fat areas that just won’t seem to go away, even with all of that hard work at the gym.  In 2011 WDC was the first to introduce Wilmington to the amazing fat reduction treatment CoolSculpting, then again in 2012 WDC was the first to introduce Liposonix, another new and incredible fat loss procedure that actually works! While both treatments are unique from each other, they both produce astonishing results, eliminating fat cells in your body permanently.

What exactly do they do?  Liposonix is safe non-surgical procedure that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound to treat and eliminate stubborn fat in the abdomen and love handle area in just one treatment! Its contouring capabilities make it easy to customize any treatment to your individual needs, which is one of the many reasons why we love the Liposonix procedure.  Coolsculpting is another non-surgical option that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise.

What results can I expect?  With Liposonix all it takes is one-treament, one-hour for a waistline reducation one-size smaller (about 1 inch on average)!   With Coolsculpting, results on average are about 20% reduction of fat in the areas being treated.   Both Lipsonix and Coolsculpting results are not seem immediately, but area gradual reduction of fat over and 8-12 week period of time…so don’t wait until beach season to  schedule your appointment!

Both non-surgical procedures are no downtime, no needles, and maximum results.  While they aren’t fat loss systems, both are amazing for those stubborn fat areas that never seem to go away with diet and exercise.  Liposonix has also come out with a new and improved protocol, making the procedure much more comfortable than it has been in the past.

How do you know what procedure is right for you?  That’s where we come in…we would love to sit down with you to discuss your overall goals and determine which procedure is best and most cost effective to meet your goals.  The reason we added Liposonix to the practice after already having CoolSculpting was its ability to go where CoolSculpting could not, due to the limitations of the applicators used.  WDC has completed numerous CoolSculpting and Liposonix treatments over the years and our experience  ensures that we will find the right procedure for your needs.
