i-Lipo™ is the latest in laser lipolysis, offering you a way to achieve inch loss and body contouring with no pain, no needles and no down time.
How does it work?
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, thus 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. A period of exercise post treatment will ensure the complete metabolism and thus elimination from the body of the freed fatty acids.
The i-Lipo system has many advantages over other similar systems.
Here are just a few!
Independent clinical studies have shown i-Lipo to be, in some cases, comparable to results achieved by liposuction. 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 neighboring 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 treatment. Typically a 2-4cm loss in abdomen circumference can be achieved with every treatment. A course of 8 treatments are recommended over 4 weeks with 2 treatments per week.
*Individual results vary and are not guaranteed.
How long will the results last?
Assuming that weight, diet, and exercise are maintained, booster treatments may not be needed. One treatment performed periodically is a good incentive to keep you in control.
Targeted fat reduction
i-Lipo can target fat reduction in specific problem area. 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.
Areas that can be treated include:
* Stomach/abdomen * Thighs * Buttocks * Love Handles * Top Arms *Double Chin
* Back Fat
PRE AND POST I-LIPO PROCEDURE
It is essential that you follow these instructions for optimal results from i-lipo treatments!
One week prior to treatment
Liberal water intake: More than 32 ounces/day
Take all medications, even diuretics
Watch appetite. Do not binge eat!
Use Cell U Lift Creme twice daily on the area to be treated (May be purchased in Spa for $79.00)
Do not drink alcohol the night before i Lipo.
Morning of treatment: prior to i-lipo treatment
Drink 24 oz of water before the procedure
Do not take diuretics until day after treatment (eg. Lasix, maxide, hydrochlorothyazide)
Take normal medications
Remove jewelry in the area of treatment, ex belly button rings, earrings
Wear clothing that will easily expose the area of treatment
During i-lipo treatment
Empty bladder immediately before i Lipo
Turn off phone and relax
Remember, i-lipo does not hurt!
Immediately after i-lipo treatment
Apply Cell U Lift Creme (May be purchased in Spa for $79.00) over area treated, and massage toward the lymph node where the stimulator was.
Within 2-3 Hours after Treatment: You must participate in aerobic exercise—walk on a treadmill, cycle, run, or participate in any aerobic exercise that can burn 400-600 calories. The longer the exercise the more likely it is that the fat that was mobilized will leave the body permanently!
Drink another 36 ounces of water after iLipo.
Do not drink alcohol! Do not binge eat!
Day after i-lipo treatment
Continue liberal water intake
Resume all medications, even diuretics
Control appetites as it may be increased from rapid fat loss…do not increase normal calories!
Use Cell U Lift Creme (May be purchased in Spa for $79.00) twice daily over the area of treatment, and massage in.
