Low level lasers have been utilized as effective treatments in cellulite reduction for several years. The i-Lipo low level lasers are released through the treatment pads, triggering a chemical signal in the cellulite cells that breaks down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, which are released through the cell membranes. Cellulite content is then transported around the body to tissues where it will be “burned off” during a period of post treatment exercise. This also enhances circulation in the area, promotes collagen growth and assists in the breakdown of fibrous cellulite tissue to achieve a slimmer, firmer and smoother looking skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments will I need?
Treatments are structured into courses of eight. Your number of treatments, however, is determined at your consultation and is based on your requirements and goals. We suggest two treatments a week over four weeks to complete a course of treatments.
How long is each treatment?
i-Lipo laser treatment takes just 20 minutes. The length of time for your post-treatment exercise to “burn off” the free fatty acids is determined at your consultation and is based on your requirements and goals.
Is it comfortable?
Most people feel very little during the treatment and find it comfortable and relaxing. The typical sensation felt is a slight warmth where the treatment pads are in contact with your skin.
Is it suitable for everyone?
i-Lipo can be used on both men and women and can treat all areas of the body except the female breast. As with any treatment, people with certain medical conditions should not use i-Lipo. Your i-Lipo practitioner will go through a full medical questionnaire and consultation prior to treatment to confirm suitability.
Is it safe?
Yes. Independent clinical studies have shown i-Lipo to be completely safe with no side effects. The 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 Ultra is FDA cleared.
How long will the results last?
Results are long term, provided your calorie intake and eating plan is stable, and you engage in regular exercise. Further treatments can be performed to correct diet indulgence or target another area of the body.
