i-Lipo Body Contouring
Non-surgical laser liposuction
No pain, no needles, no downtime! i-lipo is the latest body contouring system manufactured in the United Kingdom and is the European leader and winner of the prestigious 'Victoire de la Beaute Award, Slimming Treatment of the Year, Paris'. I-lipo is the intelligent alternative to liposuction and has many advantages compared to other systems.
Clinical studies show that i-lipo has comparable results that are achieved through liposuction surgery. There is a 30% reduction in the fat layer depth just after one treatment, and more can be achieved through more sessions. As the fat cell contents are released and excreted through the lymphatic system, immediate results can be seen after the treatment. It is recommended to do light exercise post treatment to accelerate the removal process of the released fat.
Safe and Painless
i-lipo is a safe and painless low level laser diode system that can be used on all skin types and body areas. There is no downtime and following treatment you can return to normal activity. Results can be seen immediately following treatment. Typical results are a 2-4cm loss in abdomen circumference after every treatment. Eight treatments are recommended, two per week for four weeks.
i-Lipo targets specific problem areas. Laser pads are positioned on the targeted areas such as the upper arms, chin, abdomen, or thighs. Instead of exercise reducing overall body fat, i-Lipo can reshape individual problem areas.
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 though 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.
