Body Contouring with LIPOcelEliminate Stubborn Fat
LIPOcel is an FDA approved treatment offered at Regenerative Medicine of Alabama, which enables the permanent destruction of fat. Because it is a non-invasive, painless and with no downtime, it is a great alternative to procedures such as liposuction. Stubborn areas of fat often remain even after the most rigorous diet and exercise routines. Because it’s impossible to spot reduce areas of fat on your own, LIPOcel is the ideal way to give your body the sleek contours you’ve always wanted, all without breaking a sweat!
LIPOcel uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to permanently eliminate unwanted fat cells and may even cause some skin tightening. This is done in a safe, noninvasive manner without surgery. LIPOcel shrinks and diminishes localized fat cells with next-generation technology that is then naturally processed by the body. The HIFU heats up the fat tissue 13 mm below the surface of the skin. This causes the fat cells to rupture and release their contents and the body’s lymphatic system then clears out the dead cells. The heat causes the fat cells to break down, after which they are flushed out through your body’s natural elimination processes.
You will first discuss your medical history with the physician to determine if you are suitable for the treatment. The physician and medical staff will explain how the LIPOcel works and potential contraindications to treatment. If you are accepted for care, our staff will conduct a series of body composition assessments that will include:
- Body Fat percentage
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Visceral Fat Level
- Skeletal Muscle %
- Resting Metabolism
- Body Age
We will take a series of sophisticated 3-dimensional photographs using the Canfield Vectra H2 camera system. This will enable the doctor to monitor your progress in an objective manner with high definition images. The software provides accurate measurements of the areas of your body that are treated and will even calculate an estimation for the amount of volume that has changed (i.e., reduced fat) from the LIPOcel treatment.
Using the LIPOcel handpiece, we will direct High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) energy into your unwanted fat after marking the treatment area and spraying sterilized water on it. Each treatment area typically takes about 30 minutes. Some patients may feel a heating sensation or a mild ache in their muscles during this time, but many find it completely painless. This treatment provides a comfortable patient experience that does not require anesthesia. With LIPOcel’s patented contact cooling system, maximum heat is delivered without causing pain or disruption to the surface of the skin.
Your skin may appear pink for a short period of time, but it should dissipate soon. There is no downtime after treatment and normal activities can be immediately resumed. The physician and staff will explain aftercare procedures to be done at home as well as lymphatic stimulation treatments done here in the office, as well as what you should avoid.
Most patients see some results nearly immediately after the 1st treatment, with the remaining fat removed over the next 2 to 3 months. Studies have shown that LIPOcel will reduce fat permanently by 20-40% with each session. You should expect to see a reduction between one to two dress or pant sizes smaller after 2 to 3 treatments.

This revolutionary treatment can give you slimmer contours by instantly destroying excess subcutaneous fat in your abdominal area (belly), love handles, thighs, bra rolls and under arms. Proper exercise and diet post procedure will enhance your results and help to maintain them.
The number of treatments required is determined by the amount of fat that needs to be removed and the area being treated. A typical treatment plan involves two to three treatments spaced one month apart in order to give your body enough time to process the fat that was previously treated. To help you achieve your fat reduction goals, our physician will assist you in determining the right number of treatments.
You are not alone if you struggle to lose stubborn pockets of fat no matter how much time you spend in the gym or how much you watch what you eat. It is common for people to want to slim down and contour certain areas of their bodies—that’s where LIPOcel’s non-invasive fat reduction treatment can help. In addition to losing unwanted inches, this treatment gives you the self-confidence you deserve.
LIPOcel body contouring can be used on many different areas of the body such as upper and lower stomach, love handles, bra rolls, under the buttocks, under arms, inner and outer thighs, around the knees, and man boobs. Fat pockets below the neck can be treated and almost anywhere on the body.
In order to work effectively, LIPOcel must be applied to subcutaneous fat, which is fat that is stored between your muscle tissues and skin. It is not effective for visceral fat, which is the type of fat that surrounds your internal organs in your abdomen. Furthermore, LIPOcel cannot replace a healthy diet and regular exercise. Using it in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle will lead to better results, but it cannot treat obesity. In order to determine whether you are a good candidate for LIPOcel, our physician will conduct an evaluation and discuss your goals with you. Depending on your body shape and fat loss goals, we have options for weight loss if you are not a candidate for LIPOcel treatment.
