I-Lipo (Laser Lipolysis)
Laser lipolysis is now a commonly used and accepted method of removing unwanted fatty tissue. It was approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October of 2006. It works by liquefying fatty tissue, coagulating small blood vessels, and promoting tissue tightening.
I-Lipo is a new system of laser lipolysis that uses low level lasers for smoothing cellulite, fat reduction, and body shaping treatments. It is a safe and painless low level laser diode system that can be used on all skin types and body areas. Clinical studies show that it can be alternative to, and in some cases has comparable results to, those achieved through liposuction.
- No pain
- no needles
- no downtime
It is 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 can target fat reduction in specific problem areas. 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.
Ultrasound imagery has show 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.
There is no downtime and following treatment you can return to normal activity. Eight treatments are recommended, two per week for four weeks.
