LIPOcel™ non-invasive body contouring treatment for fat reduction in Montclair, NJ
LIPOcel body contouring: how it worksLIPOcel 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!
Benefits of LIPOcel treatmentLIPOcel 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.

What to expect during and after your LIPOcel treatmentThe 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.
Am I a good candidate?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.
