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 ® P.C. 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.

Feel free to give us a call to learn more about LIPOcel™.


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.

Dr. Downie channels in on the Good Day New York program on Fox 5 New York to talk about Lipocel which is great for any who is of a BMI that is under 30. The specially designed mechanism helps to reduce fat by using ultra sound to burst fat cells away and is great for either men or women.

From Fox 5 New York this is good day New York. We all have problem areas. Really- not me. 1 2 3 iv lost count (Laughs) wishing we could just melt away the fact. Well there is a cosmetic procedure – it’s called lipocell and that can help to take away the inches from your stomach your back your arms your thighs. Alright dermatologists and the owner of image Dermatology ® P.C. in Mont Clair New Jersey – Dr. Jeanine Downie is with us this morning to shows us how the procedure is done, but to explain to us doctor how this works – ok so Lipocell is not like freezing effect, Lipocell is a high frequency ultra sound that uses thermal energy and it bursts the fat cells apart, and once the fat cells are pulled apart, you drink water, you exercise and your blood cells get pushed not into your blood stream, and you pee and poop some of it out. It is totally safe, for both males and females of all skin types – 70 percent of the America population is overweight or obese so basically people need help to get their health back. Yeah I am just wondering if you need to lose weight should you wait to have this procedure or this will help you lose weight? This can help some people lose weight that have a Bmi that is less than 30, if they have a BMI that is more than 30 I absolutely recommend that they lose the weight first, and then it will burn along, and my patents are very very very excited about it. You want to see a demo? Yeah! We want to see a demo and I want you to tell me – because I have had Emsculpt and TruSculpt so tell me the difference between this. Ok so basically what we are doing is we cool the area so that will make it good for all skin cells, and In the transducer which is a valve the ultra sound is focusing not on the skim but on the fat below the surface of the skin and it is bursting the fat cells aside. So that is why this is great for all skin types, light and dark anybody in between – it is just that the Bmi has to be 30 or less. What’s it feel like Jeanine? What does it feel like right now? The patient is nodding their head – it can be a little pinky towards the end, iv don’t this for myself so it feels a little pinchy towards the end but completely tolerable even for men. A lot of male patients come in here and they get on the table, so this you can almost feel it burns off, and you can’t exercise for 24 hours before you do need to exercise 24 hours after. Doctor I’m just wondering what you are doing now I see somebody your esthetician is spraying water I don’t know what’s in that bottle – there is a big contraption. So this is the water that you freeze and you use it to make sure it does not get too cold or too hot so that is why it’s used. And so you start to see results in 4 weeks and the final results are in 12 depending on what you want it can be as high as $2000. Great if people want to find you where can they find you? Oh so I am at image Dermatology ® P.C. in Mount Clair New Jersey and my Instagram handle is @jeaninedownie and I absolutely need more followers. Thank you Dr. Jeanine Downie and the address is 51 park streets Mount Clair New Jersey – cost ranges from 850 to 1200 dollars per treatment session. Thank you doctor, you too Happy New Year!
