Benefits of LIPOcel treatment

If you have stubborn pockets of fat that just don’t budge no matter how much time you spend in the gym or watch what you eat, you are not alone. Nearly everyone has areas they’d like to streamline and contour on their body—that’s where LIPOcel™ non-invasive fat reduction treatment comes in! Offered at image Dermatology™ P.C. in Montclair, NJ, LIPOcel treatment can help you lose unwanted inches, and more importantly, gain the self-confidence you deserve!


LIPOcel works to reduce unwanted fat and cellulite by using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to heat the fat cells in the targeted area. The heat causes the fat cells to break down, after which they are flushed out through your body’s natural elimination processes. For those familiar with CoolSculpt, which uses cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells, you can think of LIPOcel as the exact opposite – but with similar slimming effects!


LIPOcel is backed by scientific studies that show that HIFU has a significant effect on the body contours, removing unwanted cellulite and fat. On average, patients see about 10 percent of their results nearly immediately after the treatment, and then the remaining fat and cellulite loss appears over the next eight weeks. In addition, LIPOcel:

  • Is non-invasive
  • Requires no downtime
  • Is comfortable – it has contact cooling systems that are designed to keep your skin cool while internally heating your fat cells with higher energy
  • Does not require anesthesia
  • Does not require long treatment times

In addition, LIPOcel is highly versatile and can be used in several different areas, including the stomach, back (including bra rolls), love handles, thighs, chest, arms, and more.

LIPOcel™ is a great way to eliminate those extra inches by melting the fat under your skin. Watch this video as Dr. Jeanine Downie from Image Dermatology® explains all you need to know about LIPOcel™.

What is LIPOcel™?

LIPOcel™ technology is pretty interesting, different, and unique. It is a high-frequency ultrasound that melts fat under the surface of the skin.

It can be used in males and females, in all ethnicities, and it can be used on young and older people.

What are the areas LIPOcel™ can be used on?

The most common place I do LIPOcel™ is the abdomen. The second most common is the back. The third most common is the inner thighs.

Typically we do a minimum of three treatment sessions, and then you will see your best results in about 8 to 12 weeks after.

What is the process before and after LIPOcel™ treatment?

We measure each patient, weigh each patient and take great photographs before we start the procedure so that we can track their progress.

Obviously, with the LIPOcel™ or any fat-melting technology, you have to make sure that you watch your diet.

You have to make sure that your inches are going down and be smart about your food choices while you’re doing the LIPOcel™ so you can get the best results.

Is the procedure of getting LIPOcel™ painful?

This is a fun, interesting, newer technology and is not painful. It is something where patients can drive to the office, get the procedure and drive back on.

Depending on where you have the fat and how much fat you have, the procedure itself takes roughly 35 minutes, sometimes almost a full hour.

So we recommend people come a minimum of once every two weeks. It’s a minimum of three treatment sessions and can be up to six treatments or more.

The LIPOcel treatment technique is quick but effective. After preparing the treatment area by marking it and spraying water on the area, we will use the LIPOcel handpiece to focus the high-intensity ultrasound energy in your unwanted fat and cellulite. It typically takes about 30 minutes per treatment area. During this time, you may feel a heating sensation or ache in your muscles in the area being treated, but many patients are completely comfortable and find it painless. After the treatment is complete, your skin will likely be pink for a short time, but it will dissipate quickly.

Each patient’s treatment plan varies, but most patients can achieve the results they are seeking with one to three treatments that are spaced one month apart. Dr. Downie will help you determine the right number of treatments to help you reach your fat reduction goals.

LIPOcel works the best on subcutaneous fat, which is the fat that is stored between your muscle and skin. It is not as effective on visceral fat, which is the type of fat that surrounds your internal organs in your abdomen. Also, it is important to understand that LIPOcel cannot take the place of a healthy diet and regular exercise. It cannot treat obesity and should be used in combination with a healthy lifestyle to help you achieve the best results. Dr. Downie will conduct a thorough evaluation and discuss your goals with you before your treatment to determine if LIPOcel or another body contouring treatment is right for you. We offer a number of fat reduction and body sculpting options to suit a wide variety of body shapes and fat loss goals.
