Don't be discouraged by your love handles or that last stubborn area of flab that remains on your body after you've worked so hard to get rid of it all! Mountcastle Medical Spa and Laser Center of Northern Virginia has the 4-1-1 on Liposonix, and comparable treatment options. How does it work? The machine uses high-intensity ultrasound energy to blast the subcutaneous fat at your waistline. The body then eliminates the unwanted cells, rejecting the storage of fat in the area. Simply put, It’s body contouring without the small incision scars. While Dr. Mountcastle no longer uses Liposonix technology in his practice, he wants his patients to be aware of all treatment options available on the market. Dr. Mountcastle now utilizes cutting edge CoolSculpting technology that is less painful and yields exceptionally better results. Visit the CoolSculpting procedure page to learn more about this non-invasive fat melting technology!

"I went in for a lipoma removal Dr. Mountcastle made it so fast and easy! Painless and made me feel comfortable! Wasn't scary at all! The staff is very helpful and kind!"- R.M. / Yelp / Feb 04, 2019
"I've not only visited the MedSpa for Botox for the last few years (Amy rocks - I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else!), but I recently had Dr. M remove some moles. One was on my face, so you can imagine my trepidation, but I had seen his amazing mole removal results on a friend and decided to go for it! While you have to wear a piece of medical tape for 2 weeks, which left me hiding at home for that long, everything else was perfect! Great results so far - still slightly pink, but nothing a little concealer can't fix. I can't wait to see what it looks like in a few months!! Already planning to return to have another removed. Highly recommend!"- C.T. / Yelp / Feb 03, 2019
Simply put, Dr. Mountcastle does not suggest there are any best candidates for this procedure. He performed this fat reduction treatment for over a year, and it caused more pain with substandard results compared to invasive SmartLipo liposuction. Dr. Mountcastle has even performed Liposonix on one area of the body and liposuction to another on the same patient, and the patient states they wish they would have only had laser liposuction because of the exceedingly superior results. Laser Liposuction removes 50% of the fat in the area of treatment whereas most noninvasive therapies remove 10-20%. In summary, Dr. Mountcastle does not recommend Liposonix. While CoolSculpting yields better results with less pain post procedure than Liposonix, SmartLipo Triplex laser liposuction has the best results regarding the amount of fat reduction.
Generally, most doctors will advise men and women who need or would like to lose fat in stubborn areas of the body to consider this treatment. These areas are often resistant to diet and exercise and are medically and historically proven to store fat. These candidates also:
- Have excellent general health
- Are near or have reached their weight goal
- Display significant fat around the abdominal area that exists regardless of adjustments in nutrition and diet, as well as exercise regimens
- Have realistic ideas of what Liposonix can do for their figure
DURING/AFTER THE PROCEDURE
Patients are completely awake for Liposonix similar to an in-office liposuction procedure, where the only difference is the local anesthesia that is used during liposuction. This minimally invasive procedure is generally performed in-office, as opposed to a hospital. On average, it will take approximately 1-3 hours to complete this procedure. After the treatment, patients can go back immediately to their usual activities and will begin to see results shortly after. It takes on average six to eight weeks for all of the treated fat to completely dissolve, and patients have reported being able to wear at least one size smaller after the Liposonix treatment. There are no incision marks to care for and absolutely no chance of scarring.
