Q. What is Cellulite?

Cellulite equals fat cells (adipocytes) which are located in the subcutaneous tissue (just under the skin and above the muscle. Cellulite is due to an excessive caloric intake causing the fat cell to store triglycerides. These adipocytes infiltrate the dermis between the bands of collagen and cause the skin surface irregularities. Cellulite is also linked to poor functioning of the circulatory system. Decreased circulation results in a loss of collagen elasticity and poor tone of the vascular walls, which together causes an increase in capillary permeability. As a consequence, there is an outflow of liquid from the circulatory system producing visual swelling known as edema. So, cellulite is a combination of fat and water underneath the skin resulting in dimpling, bunching, and other unattractive skin irregularities.

Q. How does LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream work?

First the LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream is formulated to be absorbed through the skin and to disrupt the fat cell membrane. This causes the cells to shrink and releasing their fatty content.

Second, an inflammatory response ensues, allowing the debris to be “cleaned up” by the macrophage cells. This inflammation is responsible for some redness and soreness and readies the region for local tissue retraction.

Lastly, new collagen is deposited in the area, causing skin tightening with denser, firmer skin character. The fat and cellular debris that are removed are collected as waste and excreted through the body’s normal metabolic pathways (urine and feces).

LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream Cellulite is specifically formulated to avoid the formation of new fat cells, reduce the existing adipocytes and enhance blood flow. This results in a visually noticed slimming effect, as it also acts at a local level diminishing the already existing fat deposits.

Q. Is LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream safe?

Yes. Over 5,000 patients in our private aesthetic medicine center have successfully and safely lost their cellulite and fat deposits skin irregularities.

Q. Does LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream hurt and what are the side-effects?

LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream is massaged on the treated area using your fingertips. All patients experience only mild discomfort that is very tolerable. Expect your skin to feel warm and turn pinkish-red. The color change or warm sensation usually begins within minutes and may last for up to an hour. Most patients experienced mild to significant sensation of skin tightening in the treated area lasting upto 12 hours. These side-effects are normal, expected, and a good sign that fat reduction and skin tightening is occurring. Occasionally, an itching sensation is described as the inflammation resolves. This reaction is temporary.

Q. How soon will I see LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream results?

Q. Is LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream the same as Liposuction or Mesotherapy?

No. LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream is massaged onto your skin allowing for absorption. 'Liposuction' and 'Mesotherapy' are both invasive. Liposuction involves 'operating-room surgical cutting', and mesotherapy involves injecting medications into your body.

Q. What are the areas that can be treated with LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream?

LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream is ideal for treating practically any localized fat deposit; such as the lower eye pads, chin, jowls, cheeks, abdomen, upper/lower back, upper arms, hips, thighs, knees, buttocks, love handles, gynecomastia, surgical deformities and uneven contour from liposuction.

Q. Is there down time with LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream?

There is virtually “no downtime” since patients are able to return to work or normal activity on the same day as their treatment. This is one of the advantages of LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream versus surgical liposuction. Perhaps that is why some patients have dubbed this procedure the “break-time lipo”.

Q. How do I know if I am a LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream candidate?

The ideal LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream candidate is healthy and is within range of their medically ideal body weight with respect to their height. LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream is not for those seeking to lose weight. LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream is not a weight loss alternative program. LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream works best for those with isolated fat deposit areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Q. What can I do to lose weight before I can qualify for LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream?

We prefer that after seeking consultation from your primary care physician, that you embark on a balanced diet and moderate exercise program. Some weight management dietary supplements such as LipoErase® Rx and Miracle Protein may be suitable.

Q. What is LipoTherm™ and DermaLift™?

LipoTherm™ is a patented process which uses a combination of LipoErase® Rx Anti-Aging and Weight Management Supplement, Miracle Protein, and LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream; and either the Sciton 1319, 1064 lasers or the Thermage NXT. This combination therapy is clinically proven to SHRINK FAT WHILE TIGHTENING skin. The anti-aging process of collagen remodeling and skin tightening due to increased collagen stimulation in the deeper layers of the skin may continue for up to six months post treatment.

The Sciton lasers and Thermage NXT devices are FDA Class 1; unlike the Syneron Velasmooth Cellulite laser which is an FDA Class 2 device which can be purchased and used by non-physicians such as aestheticians, massage therapists, and spa investors. The clinical results between the Sciton laser, Thermage, and Velasmooth are significantly different according to the FDA and subsequent LipoZap patients. We certainly saw the difference clinically on our patients way before LipoZap, that is why we only use Class 1 devices.

Our patented The "System and Method for the Removal of Wrinkles from Human Skin" process combines Thermage, Erbium, 1310, 1064, LipoErase® Rx Weight Management and Anti-Aging Supplement, Miracle Protein, and LipoErase® Anti-Cellulite and Firming Cream resulting in a noticeably healthier, softer, smoother, vibrant, tighter, and less aged skin immediately within the first week. This patented process is known as: "DermaLift™", and "LipoTherm™."

DermaLift™ results in smooth, tight, skin. DermaLift™ is ideal for body areas needing lifting, toning, and skin tightening without fatty tissue removal. DermaLift™ is ideal for the faces, breast, tummy, and any Cellulite prone area.

Our physicians are one of the first five Southern California physicians to be granted and certified in the use of the Thermage NXT. Our physicians have performed thousands of Thermage Non-Surgical Lifts of Eyes-Faces-Neck-Arms-Thighs-Butts-Tummies-Breasts-Hands since its first introduction and use under general anesthesia beginning in 2002. Now, Thermage NXT Non-Surgical Lifts are in-office procedures that can usually be performed in one hour with immediate noticable results. Our physicians use LipoErase® Cream in combination with the Sciton 1319 and 1064 lasers,or Thermage NXT for wrinkle removal and dermal thickening. These laser treatments can usually be performed in 15 minutes per area. The Thermage NXT, 1319, and 1064 laser technologies require virtually NO DOWN TIME and patients can return to normal activities immediately.
