Lipocel Q & A
What is body contouring?
Body contouring, also known as body sculpting, is a non-invasive weight loss and cellulite reduction treatment that allows your physician to target specific areas of your body with radiofrequency energy.
Cellulite, skin laxity, and certain areas of the body often don't respond to changes in your diet and exercise routines. It can also be frustrating to commit to the changes necessary for sustainable weight loss, only to still have sagging skin on your belly or cellulite on your thighs or buttocks.
Body sculpting treatments like LIPOcel specifically target these issues to help you get the smooth, firm body you've been working to achieve.
What is LIPOcel?
LIPOcel is a revolutionary body sculpting procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to heat your skin and subdermal fat. The heat helps your body's lymphatic system work effectively, moving excess fluids and toxins out of your body.
Your aesthetic specialist at Liondale Medical uses a handheld device to direct the radiofrequency energy to your specified areas. While the treatment simulates improved drainage and skin tightening immediately, the results become more noticeable as time passes.
Most patients have an initial series of biweekly treatments to start their body sculpting experience with LIPOcel. Your aesthetic specialist advises you on how many sessions you'll need to achieve your desired results. Then, you should have touch-up appointments every six months to maintain your sculpted and cellulite-free appearance.
Who is a good candidate for LIPOcel treatment?
If you're close to your ideal body weight but are troubled by loose skin or cellulite, LIPOcel body sculpting treatments could be right for you. You should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about what body contouring can help you achieve.
LIPOcel isn't a fat removal treatment, nor is it a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise.
What should I expect during LIPOcel body sculpting?
Body sculpting treatments usually take 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area you have treated. You relax while your aesthetic specialist guides the handheld applicator device over your skin. You may notice a warm sensation; many patients describe LIPOcel treatments as feeling like a pleasant hot stone massage.
After your treatment, your skin may appear pink, but your skin tone returns to normal as your temperature regulates. You don't need to take any time off to recover after your treatment, although you should avoid demanding physical activity for the rest of the day.
