Safe and Painless

i-lipo is a safe and painless low level laser diode system that can be used on all skin types and body areas. There is no downtime and following treatment you can return to normal activity. Results can be seen immediately following treatment.

Typical results are a 2-4 cm loss in abdomen circumference after every treatment. Eight treatments are recommended, two per week for four weeks.

Treatment targets problem areas

i-Lipo targets specific problem areas. Laser pads are positioned on the targeted areas such as the upper arms, chin, abdomen, or thighs. Instead of exercise reducing overall body fat, i-Lipo can reshape individual problem areas.

The FDA scrutinized a double-blind, placebo controlled randomized study before they gave clearance. The FDA validated the use of the i-Lipo to specifically target chosen anatomical areas for fat reduction.

The iLipo beat the placebo by 72% and gained FDA Clearance. This 72% difference between the treatment and placebo groups is more than double the % difference defined by the FDA as demonstrating a significant result from treatment.>

Frequently Asked Questions about i-Lipo

What is iLipo?
i-Lipo is a low-level laser that targets the triglycerides located inside the fat cell and pulls them out into the bloodstream. If you think of the fat cell as a grape, once the triglycerides are pulled from it then the fat cell shrinks, similar to a raisin. These triglycerides will circulate in the bloodstream for about 2-3 hours after your session. During this period, you will need to do at least 30 minutes of cardio exercise at moderate intensity. You do not need to target the treated area during your exercise.
How long do the i-Lipo sessions last?
Each i-Lipo session lasts 20 minutes.
How often do I have to come in for i-Lipo treatment sessions?
It is recommended that you do your sessions twice per week. You must put a minimum of one day in between your treatments. Some clients prefer to come 3 times per week with a day in between each session so that they can complete their treatment course over a shorter period of time.
Does Laser Lipo hurt?
There is absolutely no pain with the treatment. There is no downtime afterward.
Do I have to exercise after iLipo? What if I am unable to exercise?
Cardio exercise at moderate intensity is required within 2-3 hours after your treatment in order for the treatment to work. Any triglycerides that are not burned off during exercise will just move back into the fat cell, causing it to increase in size. Therefore, if the triglycerides are not eliminated during exercise, the initial decrease in size will not last. Check with your doctor if you are unsure about your ability to exercise.
Is i-Lipo and Laser Liposuction permanent?
i-Lipo is a fat-reduction procedure. It is not a fat-destruction procedure. What this means is that the fat cells in the treated area will still remain after your sessions, they will just be smaller. However, if your weight remains stable, you will maintain the results you achieve. But if you do gain weight, you can gain it in the area that was treated. i-Lipo is different from fat-destruction procedures like liposuction or CoolSculpting in that with those procedures, you can no longer gain weight in the treated area. For example, if the abdomen has the fat cells destroyed, then later the client gains 20 pounds, he cannot gain weight in the abdomen because there are no fat cells in that area. Therefore, the fat will go to an area where there are fat cells, and the client will have no control over what area that will be. Gaining weight after a fat-destruction procedure can lead to undesirable body shapes, and treating problem areas with i-Lipo instead does not pose this risk.
Is it safe?
Yes. i-Lipo is FDA approved to treat all areas of the body except the female breast.
Does i-Lipo really work?
Yes! Some body areas respond more quickly than others, and results can vary among individuals.
