You eat well and exercise, but no matter how hard you try, you’re still struggling to shed those last few pounds. At Starkey Medical Esthetics in Salem, Virginia we offer a range of body contouring options to help you achieve your esthetic goals. One of our most popular services is Lipo-Vibe body slimming, a noninvasive therapy that uses ultrasonic energy to dissolve fat in target areas and smooth out bumpy cellulite.
In this blog, our knowledgeable master esthetician, Michele Meinhart, FNP answers a few frequently asked questions about Lipo-Vibe and shares some of the reasons why people love it so much.
How does ultrasonic fat removal work?
When you come in for your body slimming session, one of our team members will help you get comfortable in a private room. You won’t need any local or general anesthesia because Lipo-Vibe is a painless procedure and only takes about 20 minutes. You’ll be awake during the treatment.
Your specialist glides a small handheld device over the areas that you have designated for fat removal, such as your abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, legs, breasts, and arms. A safe burst of ultrasonic energy penetrates through your skin to destabilize fat cells, so they lose their integrity. Over time, your lymphatic system expels the fat.
Who is a candidate for Lipo-Vibe?
You’re eligible for Lipo-Vibe body slimming treatments if you:
- Are at your target weight, but have a few stubborn pockets of fat
- Are in good health with no chronic medical conditions
In general, Lipo-Vibe is not recommended if you have reduced blood flow, diabetes, coronary artery disease, or suppressed immune function.

- Is incredibly effective
- Does not require surgery or downtime
- Spot treats trouble areas
- Is approved by the FDA
- Doesn’t damage skin or nerves
