Developed by Jeisys Medical in Seoul, South Korea, the new LIPOcel body contouring system is revolutionizing the way that clinics worldwide offer fat removal. This new platform uses high frequency focused ultrasound (HIFU) to destroy fat cells beneath the skin without damaging surrounding tissue. MD360 can help you determine the benefits of LIPOcel for your practice.
How LIPOcel Works
Most fat reduction devices today use radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat up and destroy subcutaneous fat cells. However, one drawback of using RF energy is that it heats up every layer of skin that it passes through, so the device must be kept at lower power levels to avoid burning off the outer layers of the skin.
In contrast, HIFU concentrates energy in a concave wave that focuses on a single point. The device heats up fat layers beneath the skin while leaving the outer layers unaffected. This means that more energy can be brought to bear on the targeted areas, allowing for faster and better results. In addition, the LIPOcel handpiece has a cooling function that keeps it at 5°C (41°F), minimizing patient discomfort from the heat the device generates.
LIPOcel is Easy to Use for Medical Practices
The LIPOcel device is very easy to set up and operate. Unlike many medical devices that take up entire rooms and cannot be moved, LIPOcel is a single unit about 3-4 feet tall that can be moved from place to place, and only needs to be plugged into a wall outlet to operate.
Only minimal training is required to operate the device. All a practitioner needs to do is mark the body parts that will be treated, place the handpiece against the target area, and activate the switch. LIPOcel is cleared to treat most areas of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, arms, hips, and thighs. Marking and treating 40 sites on the body takes only an hour.
Patients see significant fat reduction which increases for up to 12 weeks after treatment as destroyed fat cells are gradually discharged from the body. There is no downtime, minimal risk of side effects, and the device is safe to use on any skin type.
