In the November edition of Bazaar Magazine, it is reported that ultrasound is the latest weapon for skin tightening. LipoSonix is FDA approved in the US to reduce body fat and was available in Europe for several years before that. The article says this is a non-invasive procedure that targets and heats fat to destroy the cells, which are then safely processed through the lymphatic system and then excreted from the body.
Results are seen in 2 to 3 months since fat cells take time to die but the fat reduction is permanent. "This isn't meant as a weight loss treatment and won't remove the amount of fat that liposuction would, but you can go down one or two dress sizes," says dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz of New York.
