Most truly effective procedures that are heat-based create some level of discomfort. Liposonix is no exception in this area. However, any patient who is anxious or desires pain prevention medication can simply discuss this option with Dr. Pilest during the consultation.
This is one treatment that honestly is “no pain, no gain”. As much as we would like to offer a pain-free option, some treatments will ONLY deliver results if the energy levels are high enough to complete the desired action. Pain management is not a problem and can be implemented for this and any other procedure that calls for high energies.
Side Effects and Patient Comfort: Discomfort during treatment is generally described as pain, cold, prickling, tingling, or warmth.
Post-treatment: Side effects include bruising, redness, and swelling, also generally described as mild. In this case, bruising is a desirable side effect because it is an indication that the treatment is working. The use of any patient comfort technique during treatment with the Liposonix system is at the physician’s discretion, based on an objective medical assessment of each individual patient.
