What is I – Lipo
i-Lipo is fast becoming the easiest and most pain free way to reduce fat. It can be performed on most parts of the body and can be done in your lunchtime.
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, so 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. Light exercise post treatment can accelerate the breakdown and removal of fat from the area.
What are the benefits?
- Cost effective
- Targeted inch loss
- No needles, pain or surgery
- Quick results
- May get an inch loss immediately
Is i-Lipo permanent?
Clients can expect to lose between 200 to 400 calories on their target area per treatment (equivalent to 30 to 45 mins of fat burning exercise). This circumferential fat loss is highly achievable.
Non-responders are primarily limited to those who experience thyroid dysfunction, anti-inflammatory disorders and/or persons who have other medical conditions that continually work against the laser technology
Once fat is reduced – calories will only return if calories introduced to the body, exceed calories out.
Is i-Lipo safe?
Our laser stubborn fat and cellulite reduction technology is a skin contact low level laser system that is clinically proven to achieve results. As well as being FDA approved, independent clinical studies have shown our laser to have no identified 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. It can be used on all skin types and body areas and you can return to normal activity immediately after a treatment. Most people feel very little during the treatment and find it quite comfortable and relaxing. The typical sensation felt is slight warmth where the treatment pads are in contact with your skin.
Why is exercise required after a laser stubborn fat and cellulite reduction treatment?
Exercise creates a signal to our bodies demanding ‘extra energy’. Normally, the body responds to this demand by releasing stored fat content to be used as fuel. This release can be from any stored fat content around the body. Through the use of low level lasers, laser fat reduction mimics the body’s natural fat burning process, allowing clients to target an area of their body for fat release even before exercise. Exercising after a laser fat reduction treatment will accelerate the “burning” of fat content that is transported around the body.
What’s the difference between i-Lipo laser and alternate cellulite and fat reduction technologies?
There are many differences between laser fat reduction and other cellulite and fat reduction technologies, the main difference being that our laser technology is a targeted form of fat reduction, meaning it can mark specific areas of concern. By positioning the laser pads directly on the regions of concern, our laser fat reduction technology can target areas such as the double chin, upper arms, abdomen or thighs. This means fat can be broken down and removed from almost every body part where there are specific concerns. The biggest advantage to i-Lipo laser is that there is zero down time for clients. Instead, you are actually encouraged to exercise immediately after your treatment to speed up the lymphatic drainage process! This is also a great advantage over diet and exercise alone, as laser fat reduction has the ability to shape and contour individual areas with its innovative design.
Which areas can i-LIPO treat?
Thighs, buttocks, stomach, calves, knees, arms, “love handles”, hips and the chin and neck.
Who is i-LIPO suitable for?
It works equally well for men and women. There are a few medical conditions that would prevent treatment. You will be given a full medical questionnaire will be completed by your i-LIPO therapist at the first consultation. Best results are achieved by healthy adults who wish to spot reduce particular problem areas.
How many treatments will I require and how often should I have them?
For maximum results a course of 8 treatments is recommended per body area, twice per week.
How long is a treatment session?
A typical i-LIPO session takes 30 minutes. 30-40 minutes of exercise is then necessary either immediately after, or within a few hours of i-LIPO. The aim is to burn 300 calories after each i-LIPO session to assist with the removal of fat stores through energy use.
