Do you want to shed some unwanted weight? Have you always dreamed of the perfect beach body? Are you afraid to go down to the pool on a hot summer’s day? If you answered yes to any of those questions then Coolsculpting,  Liposuction or Liposonix might be for you! These days our look is constantly on display wherever we look. From Facebook to Instagram, people can see how we’re looking whether we like it or not. For whatever reason, our generation has decided that we’re going to be obsessed with being healthy and fit and it’s almost a societal faux pas if you aren’t going to the gym at least three times a week. This definitely isn’t a bad thing for everyone to be getting in shape. However, it definitely leaves some people feeling left out. If you are one of those people who just can’t lose weight regardless of a crazy diet and insane workouts, you’re in luck! There are a couple of weight loss treatments on the market today!


Coolsculpting fat reduction is growing in popularity every day. The reason for its growing popularity is that it’s a non-invasive procedure, meaning it does not require the use of drugs or incisions.

What is it?

Coolsculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise.

How does it work?

Coolsculpting works by safely delivering precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized, killed, and eventually removed naturally by the body.


This one is probably the best-known fat reduction treatment today. It has been around the longest and still offers the most drastic results. However, it does have its drawbacks. Here is a simple guide to everything liposuction

What is it?

Liposuction, also referred to as lipoplasty, or simply lipo, is a cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat from various sites on the body. Areas affected can range from the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, to the neck, back, arms, and elsewhere.

How does it work?

Suction-assisted liposuction is the standard method of liposuction. This approach uses a small cannula attached to a vacuum device to suck the fat cells out with the use of suction.


Liposonix is a safe, non-invasive revolutionary treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound to treat and eliminate stubborn fat.

What makes it different?

Invasive fat reduction procedures like liposuction often have certain surgical risks and are associated with significant post-treatment recovery downtime. Unlike those types of treatments, Liposonix is non-invasive and patients typically resume normal activities immediately following the procedure.

How does it work?

  • Treatment applicator is placed on the area being treated
  • High intensity ultrasound energy focuses on the targeted fat, destroying fat cells beneath the surface layers of the skin
  • Treated fat cells are removed by the body’s natural processes

If you are seriously considering a fat reduction treatment, consult your doctor to explore all possible opportunities.
