THE NEW NON-INVASIVE BODY CONTOURING SYSTEM
Lipocel is a non-invasive treatment for eliminating fat in specific problem areas that defy regular exercise and a healthy diet. The treatment offers precision body contouring using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), which is able to destroy fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue and the skin. The common treatment areas are the flanks, stomach, underarms, knees and back of thighs. Lipocel helps to eliminate unwanted fat, and because it is non-invasive, it does not incur any downtime or surgery. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks
HOW DOES LIPOCEL HIFU WORK?
Lipocel treatment is safe and effective. The procedure delivers HIFU energy accurately into over 1.3cm deep under the skin to destroy fat cells, without damaging the surrounding tissue and skin.
The unique patented Lipocel contact cooling system is a great breakthrough in the use of focused ultrasound. The technology and system makes heat energy completely bearable by reducing the handpiece surface temperate down to just 5oC. The treatment is extremely effective for the breakdown of fat cells.
This lower temperature level reduces the pain experienced in epidermal and nerve areas, and also ensures that the skin’s surface is protected, while delivering higher energy into the subcutaneous fat layer for optimum results. The temperature of the subcutaneous fat cells is raised to over 70oC
by using powerful energy up to a maximum of 150 J.
WHAT IS HIFU?
HIFU is short for high-intensity focused ultrasound. It is a type of thermal or heat therapy, where the heat is focused on specific areas of fat deposits. During treatment, high temperatures of 65-100oC are generated when applying the high-intensity ultrasound energy on one spot, with the objective of burning the target fat away.
The contact cooling system protects the epidermis, reduces pain, and focuses higher energy on the problematic spot, while maintaining the handpiece surface temperate down to just 5oC.

ADVANTAGES OF LIPOCEL HIFU TREATMENT
The advantages of the Lipocel HIFU treatment include:
- Targets the stubborn fat around your waistline
- Customisable to address specific ‘problem’ areas
- Minimal discomfort and pain due to the cooling technology employed
- It allows the emission of higher-intensity energy, which leads to increased effects
- It protects the epidermis to prevent ecchymosis
- There is no downtime required because it does not require surgery
- The treatment is fast because no anaesthesia is required
- The cartridge has a long life span
SAFETY AND SIDE EFFECTS
Lipocel is backed by science and years of research. The treatment has been expansively studied, with over 10 years of research and testing behind its development.
Since the Lipocel treatment is non-invasive, there is little to no downtime. During the treatment, patients may feel discomfort, prickling, tingling, pain, cold or warmth. After the treatment, patients may experience temporary redness, bruising, discomfort or swelling. However, these will disappear after a while. In fact, many patients can go back to work or resume normal activities the next day.
