Using treatment pads placed on specific areas of the body, the i-Lipo lasers are used to trigger a chemical signal in the fat cells that breaks down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol which can be released through channels in the cell membranes. The fatty acids and glycerol are 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. i-Lipo does not create any unnatural reaction in the body, nor does it affect or damage surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves. Because i-Lipo stimulates a natural response in the body, exercising after treatment can also help to complete this process of metabolism and to expel the freed fatty acids from their body.
i-Lipo laser treatment achieves results similar to liposuction. It is a safe and painless process, which can be performed on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored with immediate results – in four weeks it’s even possible to lose up to 24cm off your waistline.
The i-Lipo Ultra laser incorporates vacuum massage and infra-red skin tightening to target the most stubborn fatty deposits. The vacuum massage action of the Ultra enhances the removal of released fat cell contents and, by its suction action, optimises absorption of infra-red laser in the dermis to promote collagen growth and enhance blood circulation in the area. The result is a slimmer, tighter and smoother looking skin.
