The health benefits of balanced nutrition, a solid exercise routine and adequate our countless. From your muscles to your heart, and from your gut to your brain, we all know the hard work pays off and helps us live stronger lives. Sometimes, though, we like to bear witness to the aesthetic fruits of our labor and, unfortunately, most of us have those “stubborn” areas where excess fat and cellulite just like to post up camp regardless of what we do. You will always hear that there is no “one exercise” to target fat loss from a specific area, which is accurate…but what if there was one TOOL? We strive to help our clients feel bold and confident in their skin every day, and with LIPOcel we now have yet another way to help you achieve that!

LIPOcel is a state of the art, non-invasive treatment used for targeted fat reduction. Using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), precise thermal energy is delivered to the subcutaneous fat layer and those fat cells are diminished. What remains is then naturally expelled by the body’s elimination processes! Imagine you are outside using a magnifying glass to burn a hole in piece of paper on the sidewalk. All the photons from the sun’s rays are focused on one small spot created by the convex lens. An extremely high heat concentration is generated directly towards this one dot, which then starts an isolated burn. LIPOcel technology works in a similar way! The thermal energy from the HIFU is guided through the handpiece and targets a 3x3 inch section at a time to essentially MELT fat away! There is no crunch, punch or curl that can do that! If you’ve ever used CoolSculpt or similar treatments, you can imagine that LIPOcel is the direct opposite, using heat energy to destroy and eliminate fat cells yielding similar slimming effects.

Understandably, imagining a “targeted burn” to any part of your body may sound incredibly unpleasant. Thankfully, LIPOcel’s innovative contact cooling tool helps protect the epidermis layer and peripheral tissues. Dropping the temperature of the contact surface to about 40 degrees Fahrenheit, the contact cooling hand piece will reduce neural pain, allow for higher energy delivery, increase results, and protect the epidermis layer and surrounding tissues from ecchymosis (burns/bleeding).Backed by scientific studies, LIPOcel’s use of HIFU has a significant effect on body contours, cellulite visibility and size of fatty areas. We typically see losses between .5 to 2 inches immediately following the first treatment! The benefits continue to unfold over the following eight weeks and with continued treatment.

While efficient and effective, LIPOcel treatments are also quick and comfortable! Because of the contact cooling systems, you’ll feel minimal discomfort during the procedure. There is no anesthesia or major recovery, so you’ll be able to continue with your day as normal with no downtime! Once your treatment area is designated and prepared through section marking, your esthetician will spray the area with room temperature, distilled water. The handpiece will be applied, and HIFU will be administered for 15 to 45 seconds per section. You may feel some light pressure, mild warming, and slight vibrations during this time. You may also notice a modest ache in your muscles, but the contact cooling technology will minimize pain and discomfort. The full treatment will take between 30 to 90 minutes depending on the area(s) treated and your measurements will be accurately recorded before and immediately following each procedure!

LIPOcel is incredibly versatile in what areas it can help treat. The inner thighs, hips, arms, and flanks can be slimmed and sculpted, and the lower or upper abdomen and bra line/underarm areas can be tightened and trimmed. Before treatments you will have a complete consultation with one of our licensed estheticians to go over your goals, timelines, expectations, and ensure you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. Patients best suited for this procedure will have at least one inch of “pinchable” fat in the target area.

It is critical to understand that LIPOcel cannot replace an adequate nutrition and exercise regime and is not effective on visceral fat. But if you have stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat that just don’t seem to budge despite a healthy routine, or you’d like to contour areas affected by excess fat and cellulite, LIPOcel might be a great option to help you and achieve your desired results!
