I-Lipo Laser Lipolysis

What Is I-Lipo?

I-Lipo is non invasive, needle free, with no pain involved

I-Lipo is a relatively new development in laser lipolysis. Introduced globally in 2007 it is used mainly for the loss of weight and body contouring or sculpting. A non invasive treatment with low risk infection, the process is based on changing the “permeability of the fat cell membranes”. During the process the triglycerides through the interstitial space are filtered through to the natural metabolic functions and once absorbed the fat cells are burnt off during exercise. The I-Lipo treatment is attractive as there is no pain involved, no bruising and needle free. Studies have confirmed that the results produced by I-Lipo are equivalent to liposuction for weight loss. Ultrasound imagery has revealed the there is a 30 per cent loss in the fat layer depth after I-Lipo treatment.

The Treatment

I-Lipo creates no damage to the skin and the nerves and can be applied to all skin types. During treatment all that is felt is a feeling of warmth. After a private consultation at an established clinic focusing on the target area of the body treatment can begin. In a private room setting the diode paddles are placed on the body area to be treated. The I-lipo equipment is switched on for a duration of ten minutes for the lipolysis to occur. The treatment is relatively quick and pain free and is followed by exercise on a “vibration plate", which speeds up the natural lymphatic system. The I-Lipo treatment is usually combined with exercise and a healthy diet to ensure the best results. The recommended treatment per body area is eight treatments taken twice weekly.
