Cosmetic Centers of Hawaii offering Lipsonix


Cosmetic Centers of Hawaii now offers a new non-surgical fat reduction solution. Liposonix, the latest in non-invasive fat reduction technology, uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to permanently destroy targeted fat cells without surgery.

“Liposonix is a revolutionary non-surgical solution for people who are close to their ideal shape, but have stubborn areas of fat that just won’t go away no matter how much they exercise or diet. The procedure takes about one hour and, while individual results can vary, patients typically achieve a waistline reduction of approximately one inch (equivalent to one pant or dress size) within 8-12 weeks after receiving a single treatment,” said Dr. John Stover of Cosmetic Centers of Hawaii.

The Liposonix system technology from Solta Medical, a global leader in the medical aesthetics market, was developed over a period of 10 years by leading scientists and ultrasound experts with more than 200 years of combined experience in the field of therapeutic and diagnostic ultrasound devices.

It works by focusing ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin in order to heat only targeted fat tissue – similar to how light from the sun can be focused with a magnifying glass to create heat.

The treated fat tissue is removed through the body’s natural healing process, leaving the patient with a thinner, more contoured waistline.

Patients typically resume normal activities immediately after the Liposonix procedure and no special diet or exercise program is required in order to achieve results.

Clinical studies of more than 200 patients, conducted using the Liposonix system, showed an average waist circumference reduction of approximately one inch (2.5 cm) at 12 weeks after a single Liposonix treatment.

Liposonix specifically targets the abdomen and waist.

According to Stover, combining Liposonix with surgical liposuction for other areas of the body, along with the hCG diet, can be an effective way to reach an ideal weight. Cosmetic Centers of Hawaii is the only place in Hawaii offering all three of these treatments.

“Our patients are very happy with Liposonix because it delivers results without the risks typically associated with surgical fat reduction procedures. It is not liposuction or surgery, is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle and exercise, and is not a way to lose weight. But it is a quick, easy way to help patients slim that last inch and hit their personal shape goals,” Stover said.

Established in 2003, Cosmetic Centers of Hawaii offers three locations on the Island of Hawaii – Hilo, Kona and Waimea.

Stover, D.D.S., M.D., Ph.D., and his staff offer an array of aesthetic treatments and cosmetic surgery procedures including oral and maxillofacial surgery, facial and general cosmetic surgery, non-surgical cosmetic procedures, complete dermatology care, spa services and the most complete laser center in the state of Hawaii.
