Liposonix: How to lose weight fast and effectively

Many consider me thin/slim and they scoffed at the idea that I may need some weight lost or reduction methods. However I know myself better.
I have problem thighs and big arms.
My regular exercises keeps me trim and fit but it doesn’t reduce the size of my limbs; specifically the thighs and arms. Spot reduction is long considered impossible; especially in the sports world.
However technologically it is POSSIBLE.

Sigh. Look at my thighs. Bloody huge.
PS: This was just a week ago in Hong Kong for the #EscapersHK Scavenger Hunt. If you don’t already know, the Malaysia team WON! That’s us! You can read all about it here. 🙂

At the core of it, Liposonix uses ultrasound. This high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy focuses on TARGETED areas to permanently destroy targeted fat cells without surgery. To ” administer ”  this treatment, this machine by Solta Medical is used.

But it will be used directly on the skin, not through your clothes. This picture is just for illustration. 🙂

Now, not everyone who wants to have Liposonix treatment may qualify. Even before you can confirm yourself for a session, there are certain key factors taken into consideration to evaluate if an interested party is eligible for Liposonix.
So it’s not just about the money, the doctor/consultant at the centre are responsible to ensure that expectations between both parties are set right.
For one, patients to be in overall good health with a BMI equivalent or less than 30 and are NOT obese. Really fat people needs Liposuction, NOT Liposonix.

That’s because Liposonix IS NOT liposuction. Liposonix is safe, non-surgical and non-invasive treatment with Custom Contouring™ capabilities which target and eliminate fat while Liposuction is a surgical procedure which physically removes fat.

Liposonix is a treatment best for people close to their ideal size & shape; and used as the last resort when diet & exercise no longer work. In other words, the Liposonix treatment helps “get that last inch” off your body.

Also, you would be able to get back to your normal routine right after the treatment. But the full results of the treatment can only be seen seen in 8 to 12 weeks, which is the time needed for the body to naturally process the treated fat.
How is the “fat processed”?
Well, the fat tissues are ‘dislodged’ and will be removed through the body’s natural healing and elimination process, which explains the 8 -12 weeks period. And because it’s natural, the body is not “physically abused” in any way.

During my visit Dr Karen Po demonstrated how the treatment was done. First, the body of the patient is marked into areas. Then a treatment gel is applied. The device head of the Liposonix machine is placed on the targeted area and high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy are focused on the targeted fat. The HIFU destroys the fat cells under the layers of the skin.

Patient will typically feel discomfort, pain, coldness, prickling, tingling or warmth experienced during treatment. These effects are usually mild.
After treatment there may be temporary redness, bruising, discomfort, and swelling.

As for me, I didn’t have much fat on my tummy area so I didn’t qualify for Liposonix!

However, I do qualify for Liposonix on the thighs and arms. However the current treatment is for abdomen area so I’m patiently waiting for the device (same machine but smaller head) that will specifically target arms and legs.
Anyone would like to sponsor me? :DD
