Seattle, WA (PressExposure) February 12, 2013 -- Seattle's Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center is well-known for staying on the cutting-edge of cosmetic medicine. Demonstrating a commitment to that goal, the practice has now added Liposonix® to its growing list of featured services. Founder and director, Dr. Jennifer Reichel took a moment to explain this exciting new treatment.
"We are so excited to be introducing our patients to Liposonix," explains Dr. Reichel. "A completely non-invasive solution, the treatment uses special ultrasound energy to target fat and unwanted inches." Used specifically around the abdomen, Liposonix works to combat the appearance of a flabby abdomen and love handles. "Liposonix can also be used for unwanted fat on the thighs, lower legs, and arms" she states.
Asked to compare a Liposonix procedure to that of liposuction, Dr. Reichel offered this: "For patients with significant stubborn, exercise-resistant fat throughout the body, tumescent liposuction still remains the 'gold standard' in the industry. Liposonix, on the other hand, is best for those who need a little help in crossing the finish line - patients looking to whittle away that last stubborn inch."
Dr. Reichel also took a moment to share some of the feedback she's been getting from patients. "Since we started offering Liposonix, the response we've been getting has been overwhelmingly positive. Patients love that the procedure is only one hour long, results in no down-time and that they can see noticeable results in 8 to 12 weeks, on average."
FDA cleared, the Food and Drug Administration explains that "The Liposonix system is specifically indicated for non-invasive waist circumference reduction."
Asked to comment on the future of Liposonix, Dr. Reichel concluded with this: "Liposonix is a treatment that truly lives up to its slogan: 1 Treatment, 1 Hour, 1 Size Smaller. We can only see it growing more popular, as patients share their success stories with friends and relatives."
