Preparation for Liposonix Treatment

 

Individual results may vary.
 

​​​​What is Liposonix treatment?
Liposonix is a safe and an effective non-invasive treatment involving minimal downtime, where the patient can immediately return to their daily activities. It is a safe and effective treatment in reshaping or reducing excess fat tissues. It is not particularly recommended for fast-tracking weight loss. On the other hand, the treatment procedure can increase the patient’s motivation to maintain a regular exercise plan and a nutritiously balanced diet. 


Who should receive Liposonix treatment?
Those who want to eliminate excess body fat to gain their optimal body weight and contoured shape are considered good candidates for Liposonix treatment. Prior to treatment, a BSL Clinic’s dermatologist will first conduct a patient assessment to recommend the most effective and appropriate form of treatment. Patients with concerns regarding their potential treatment can speak to the Clinic’s dermatologist, to understand whether or not the results are effective. 

Is a blood test required?
Yes, a blood test is required. A blood test is used to determine the levels of platelet, blood coagulation (PT, PTT and TT), electrolytes, liver function and pregnancy.  Potential blood-related infections including HIV and hepatitis B are also tested. These blood tests are conducted to ensure the safety of the patient prior to treatment.  

Should medications be avoided before treatment?
There are certain medications that are to be avoided, including: 
•  Fibrinolytic medications, which can interfere with blood coagulation (aspirin, warfarin)
•  Analgesic (NSAID)
•  Vitamin E
•  Liver medications including herbal remedies 

What are treatment costs?
Treatment costs are determined after a patient assessment has been conducted. 

What does a treatment feel like?
A combination of local anaesthesia and sleeping pills are administered. There is minimal downtime involved and the patient can immediately return to their daily activities after the completion of treatment. 

What are the risks and side effects?
Understandably, all treatment procedures involve a degree of risks, but preventative measures are carefully considered and undertaken to minimise these risks. BSL Clinic’s dermatologists are well-trained and highly-experienced in their specialised field to ensure that these treatments are of high quality.

What needs to be done before treatment?
Incorporating a regular sleep routine and reducing stress levels are vitally important. Good preparation - both physically and mentally - will assist in a significant way, in determining the final outcome of the treatment. Patients are assessed on an individual basis before treatment is conducted. 

What is the required recovery time?
It is recommended that the patient take at least 2 to 3 days off of work for recovery to complete proper wound dressing, care and rest. However, the patient can immediately return to their daily activities after the completion of treatment.
