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 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 use stored energy reserves. Therefore, 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. All parts of the body that store fat can be treated, except for the female breast. The abdomen, saddlebags, thighs, upper back area, neck, arms, calves and area under the chin can all be safely treated with i-Lipo.

Who’s Eligible

The pool of ideal candidates for laser i-Lipo is a little bit smaller than for traditional (surgical) liposuction because the procedure isn't perfect for extensive weight loss. It might be right for you if you're only up to about 35 pounds over your ideal weight; are more concerned with problem areas than total-body weight loss; and are in good health with good skin elasticity. I-Lipo is not recommended for clients that are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a history of malignancy, or have diabetes.

What you can expect

» Treatment: The technician applies the pads to the targeted area, inundating it with laser energy for about 20 minutes. If necessary, she may then move the pads to focus on another area and repeat the treatment. And that's about it! Most people feel very little during their i-Lipo treatment and find it comfortable and relaxing. The typical sensation felt is slight warmth where the treatment pads are in contact with your skin. 

» After treatment: A period of exercise after treatment is recommended for the following reason: once the fat cells are broken down after i-Lipo treatments, the contents of the fat cells need a way to exit the body. If they do not exit the body within a few hours, you run the risk of the released fat getting reabsorbed by other fat cells. A brief workout immediately after an i-Lipo treatment ensures that the fat is excreted via the lymphatic system. There is no recovery period and no down time after i-Lipo sessions.

» Complications: Independent clinical studies have shown i-Lipo to be completely safe with no side effects. The i-Lipo 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. The i-Lipo Ultra is FDA cleared. 

» Frequency: I-Lipo treatments are structured into courses of eight sessions. Your number of i-Lipo treatments, however, is determined at your consultation and is based on your requirements and goals. We suggest one to two i-Lipo sessions a week over four to eight weeks to complete a full course of i-Lipo treatments. You many decide that additional treatments are needed to reach your goals. 

» Post treatment expectations: Often i-Lipo results can be seen immediately and improve with every treatment. Over the course of eight i-Lipo sessions, you can achieve dramatic reshaping of the body and reduction in cellulite.

» Length of results: Because does not destroy or remove fat cells, but rather empties them of their contents, the fat cells are capable of storing fat again. However, I-Lipo results are long-term, provided your calorie intake and eating plan is healthy and stable, and you engage in regular exercise. Further i-Lipo treatments can be performed to correct diet indulgence or target another area of the body.
