i-Lipo™ is the latest in laser lipolysis, offering you a way to achieve inch loss and body contouring with no pain, no needles, and no downtime. How does it work?
The i-Lipo emits low levels of laser energy, which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them through channels in the cell membranes. The fatty acids and glycerol are then transported around the body to the tissues that will use them during metabolism to create energy. This process of fatty acid release is a natural response of the body when the body needs to used stored energy reserves, thus i-Lipo is not creating any unnatural reaction in the body nor does it affect or damage any surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels, and peripheral nerves. A period of exercise post treatment will ensure the complete metabolism and thus elimination from the body of the freed fatty acids. Why i-Lipo? The i-Lipo system has many advantages over other similar systems, here are just a few…
Independent clinical studies have shown i-Lipo to be, in some cases, comparable to results achieved by liposuction. Ultrasound imagery shows up to 30% reduction in the fat layer depth after just one treatment. Additional treatments improve results further. Results can be seen immediately after each treatment as the fat cell contents are released. Light exercise post treatment can accelerate the removal of the released fat.
Compared to surgical liposuction and other Ultrasound or laser techniques, i-Lipo is much more affordable with similar results.
Safe and Painless.
i-Lipo uses low levels of visible red laser light to create a safe and the painless bio-stimulation effect in the targeted fat tissue. This stimulation is of the normal chemical pathways which the body uses to free up energy resources when required, so i-Lipo does not produce any abnormal effects in the body or damage body tissue such as cells, blood vessels or neighboring nerves or vital organs. The treatment can be performed on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored and you can return to normal activity immediately after treatment.
Results can be seen immediately after treatment. Typically a 2-4cm loss in abdomen circumference can be achieved with every treatment. A course of 8 treatments is recommended over 4 weeks with 2 treatments per week.
Targeted fat reduction.
i-Lipo can target fat reduction in a specific problem area. By positioning the laser pads on the target area such as chin, upper arms, abdomen or thighs fat can be broken down and removed specifically from that area. This is a big advantage over diet and exercise which can reduce overall body fat but not shape individual areas.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How many treatments will I need?
Treatments are structured into courses of eight. Your number of treatments, however, is determined at your consultation and is based on your requirements and goals. We suggest two treatments a week, over four weeks, to complete a course of treatments.
How long is each treatment?
An i-Lipo laser treatment takes just 20 minutes. The length of time for your post-treatment exercise to "burn off" the free fatty acids is determined at our consultation and is based on your requirements and goals.
Is it comfortable?
Most people feel very little during the treatment and find it comfortable and relaxing. The typical sensation felt is a slight warmth where the treatment pads are in contact with your skin.
Is it suitable for everyone?
Lipo can be used on both men and women and to treat all areas of the body except the female breasts. As with any treatment, people with certain medical conditions should not use i-Lipo. Your i-Lipo practitioner will go through a full medical questionnaire and consultation prior to treatment.
Is it safe?
Yes. Independent clinical studies have shown i-Lipo to be completely safe with no side effects. The laser simply triggers a natural reaction of fat cell release. The process does not cause any damage and cells remain intact, just smaller, giving immediate results.
How long will the result last?
Results are long-term, provided your calorie intake and eating plan are stable, and you engage in regular exercise. Further treatments can be performed to correct diet indulgence or target another area of the body.
When will I see the result?
Often results can be seen immediately and improve with every treatment. Over the course of eight sessions, you can achieve dramatic reshaping of the body and reduction in cellulite.
