Weight gain or stubborn pockets of fat in certain areas of the body can be difficult to get rid of, despite a stringent diet or rigorous exercise. As the FDA-approved ONLipo treatment at ONLY Aesthetics promises to destroy fat cells painlessly and offer instant results without downtime, it would be worthwhile to investigate just how effective it’s purported to be.
Using a Multi-Sequential Ultrasound (MSU) technology, high-intensity ultrasound waves penetrate the skin to break down and eliminate fat up to a depth of 13mm. The destroyed fat cells are then eliminated naturally from the body. This non-invasive treatment works well on targeted problem areas, such as the arms, thighs, belly, chin, armpits, abdomen and even under the buttocks.
Having opted to try ONLipo on my upper arms, the treatment began with the application of a cool gel on my right arm first. My aesthetician then pressed the applicator firmly onto my skin and massaged it along the contours of my arm. Because the applicator is quite small, it is able to reach more specific areas and have a more focused effect than some other slimming treatments. It also felt like a massage and was completely painless. The process was then repeated on my left arm.
There was a slight redness on the areas that had been treated, but this quickly disappeared within 20 minutes. I also noticed that my arms did immediately look and feel slightly more toned and contoured. While the results are instantaneous, they can also be enhanced with each subsequent session. The total number of sessions required will be tailored to one’s goals, with the recommended interval between sessions to be a fortnight.
