How iLipo Ultra Works
Low level lasers have been utilized as effective treatments in fat reduction for several years. The i-Lipo Ultra low level lasers are released through the treatment pads, triggering a chemical signal in the fat cells that breaks down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, which are released through the cell membranes. Fat content is then transported around the body to tissues where it will be "burned off" during a period of post-treatment exercise.
Infrared laser vacuum massage is performed after the laser treatment to enhance lymphatic draining, mobilising the released fat from the target area. This also enhances circulation in the area, promotes collagen growth and assists in the breakdown of fibrous cellulite tissue to achieve a slimmer, firmer and smoother looking skin.
How does it really work?
i-Lipo™ is a new revolutionary system that uses low level lasers for smoothing cellulite, fat reduction, and body shaping treatments. The i-Lipo uses photobiomodulation to stimulate the body's natural process for releasing stored content in the adipose cells. Every day, the human body is storing excess calories from your diet in the adipose tissue. The brain is in control of when the contents are released, and then metabolized into energy. You can compare the adipose cells to a re-chargeable battery, sometimes used and sometimes stored up depending on diet and exercise. i-Lipo is used to trigger the release of the contents, without exercise, and is able to target the precise stubborn areas. i-Lipo is non-invasive with no pain, no needles, and no downtime.
Patients can expect results of losing 1-2 dress sizes during their course of treatments. i-Lipo is best paired with with a change in lifestyle to maintain your results, typically just simple diet and exercise.
If you prefer the layman’s explanation… it works by placing the laser paddles on the skin, the cold red laser beams penetrate the skin just deep enough to reach the layers of fat. When the light hits the fat cells, a rapid chain of events takes place. Firstly, pores form on the cells causing them to spill out. The water, Glycerol and fatty acids move into the interstitial space beneath the fatty layer in the skin. Then further water, fatty acids and Glycerol spill out. The adipocyte cells are therefore reduced in size. A short workout is all thats needed to increase the heart rate and metabolize the released contents into the lymphatic system where your body using your kidneys gets rid of it.
Well, as many of you may have already experienced, there are several persistent fatty areas on the body that refuse to go away no matter how hard you try with work-out, cardiovascular activity or diet. This is because these specific areas are by nature the least likely to respond to these types of treatment. And that’s exactly where i-Lipo focuses its energy as it is designed to remove fat cell contents permanently.
Laser Lipo Advantages
Effective addition to dieting plans
Only 30 minutes per session
No Unsightly Scarring
The i-Lipo system has many advantages over other similar systems. Here are just a few!
Independent clincal studies have shown i-Lipo to be, in some cases, comparable to results achieved by liposuction. Iths fully FDA approved for "fat reduction". 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 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 neighbouring 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 the treatment. Typically a 2-4cm loss in abdomen circumference can be achieved with the first treatment and 1-4cm on folling treatments depending on the individual. 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 specific problem area. By positioning the laser pads on the target area (and the lymphatic laser nodes on the lymph nodes) 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.
The system has been designed with a four pad option totaling 36 individual treatment Lasers enabling operators to reduce treatment time. We also have a small two pad system to treat smaller areas like the neck.
