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
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.
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.
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.
We recommend 2 treatments per week for 4 weeks.
Can I have more than one course?
Yes but it is essential to have a two week gap between courses.
Can I have more than one area treated at one time?
Yes if you are prepared to do more cardio vascular exercise.
Will the inches stay off after a treatment?
If you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine then yes.
The fat cells are undamaged, but due to the reaction of the laser light on the cell it will empty the contents. The contents consist of Water, Glycerol and free fatty acids. Following a treatment the Glycerol or sugar is rapidly absorbed by the body. The water carries the free fatty acids, through the lymphatic system, through the kidneys and are then passed out of the body in your urine.
No. There is no pain at all.
The answer will be dependant upon your lifestyle.
Any cardio-vascular exercise adjusted for each clients fitness level, such as; running machine, swimming, power walking, etc. It is important to check the clients age and fitness level before suggesting any exercise. Whichever exercise is chosen must get the heart rate up to the point of perspiring.
All Laser Lipo Inch-loss treatments are not a miracle cure. However we achieve fantastic results more so with the clients that follow the advice of a sensible diet in addition the more exercise you can do the better the results.
At every session you will be weighed and measured and you will be photographed before your first treatment and following your last.
Do not sign them up for the course, as they will not gain from the treatment. After eight sessions with no visible loss it is quite likely they will want a refund. The importance of cardio-vascular exercise must be stressed to the client prior to commencing the course.
There are potentially three reasons for this: 1. Over eating or drinking 2. Under eating 3. Not exercising enough within 12 hours post treatment.
Yes, for some treatments it is necessary.
Within the consent form you must ask what medication they are on. Normally a client will be aware if it is a photosensitive medication (It will be clearly stated on the container). If in doubt either ask their doctor or check online.
The small diodes might not be placed on the lymph nodes correctly.
NO! Never take the laser above the cheek bones.
Protective glasses/goggles should be worn at ALL times.
Treatments take between 10 and 30 minutes dependant upon what system is being used. iLipo is the fastest and most effective system on the market.
Yes. The laser does not penetrate deeper than 13mm.
