LIPOSONIX (Only Available @ Isobel's Medispa, Palmerston North)

Skin Medic now offers various cellulite reduction treatments. Liposonix a completely non-invasive, focused ultrasound technology is designed to treat troublesome areas of cellulite which does not respond to diet or exercise. This FDA approved technology is not intended as a replacement for quick weight loss, abdominoplasty or liposuction, but as a complementary body contouring procedure. Only patients with a BMI of 30 or less will be considered for treatment. The benefits of this procedure are: 1) It is completely non-invasive; 2) It can reduce abdominal circumference by several inches; and 3) There is little to no patient downtime.

The Liposonix treatment achieves targeted cellulite reduction in the areas of the abdomen, flanks, buttocks and thighs. The fat cells that are destroyed in the treated areas are no longer available to store fat deposits, and are removed over a period of 8 to 12 weeks through the body's natural healing process. A single treatment may result in an average waist circumference reduction of approximately 1-3 cm, which may leave you with a slimmer, more contoured waistline. Individual results may vary. Please contact us to find out what finance options are available for this procedure.
CRYOLIPOLYSIS (Only Available @ Isobel's Medispa, Palmerston North)

The Cryolipolysis procedure is another non-invasive procedure that delivers controlled cooling at the surface of the skin and subcutaneous tissue to destroy fat cells. Just like HIFU or Liposonix, it is not a weight-loss solution, and it does not replace traditional methods such as liposuction. Clinical studies have shown that the Cryolipolysis procedure will help to naturally remove fat cells, but as with most procedures, visible results will vary from person to person. Results are usually evident after 12 weeks. A second session may be required 6-8 weeks after the initial procedure. This will optimize the final results.
