Have you noticed that extra love handle or muffin top peeking out of the top of your pants? In your busy schedule, it can be hard to find time to keep up with a fitness routine. Whether you exercise a little, a lot, or not at all, you want to look your best. Sometimes diet and exercise are just not enough to get the shape you want. When you can't seem to get rid of that last little bit of fat, the Lipocel treatment can help.

The Lipocel treatment is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that can get rid of targeted fat around your waistline and other problem areas. Our body disposes of these destroyed fat tissues through natural metabolism. The treatment is completed in just one  visit, and lasts about one hour. With little to no downtime or aftercare, you can resume your active lifestyle right away.

Liposuction is a surgical method to remove excess fat from the body. Being a surgical procedure, there is always a possibility of infection, side effects, complication and importantly, a longer recovery period.

The Lipocel treatment uses advanced ultrasound technology to permanently destroy that unwanted stubborn fat.

PROCEDURE: The Lipocel treatment uses non-invasive high-intensity focused ultrasound to get rid of targeted fat from body areas. Skin is not damaged as targeted fat beneath the skin is permanently destroyed by the ultrasound energy. Typically a Lipocel treatment is completed in about one hour. Most patients see maximum results in 8-12 weeks. This is the time it takes for the body to naturally remove fat cells that were destroyed during treatment.

DO’S AND DONT’S: Since the Lipocel treatment is non-invasive, there is little to no downtime. Many people go back to work or resume normal activities the next day. One should not eat food one to two hours before as well as after the procedure. You don't need to do anything out of the ordinary. There is no special post-care required, but it is recommended that you maintain the same diet and active lifestyle you had before the treatment - if not better!

COST: The Lipocel treatment is appreciated for its proven efficacy and safety standards in re-defining contours of your body. The treatments are cost-effective and offer excellent value, with the advantage of being a non-surgical intervention.
