i-lipo Body Reshaping
The i-Lipo low level lasers are released through the treatment pads, triggering a chemical signal in the fat cells that breaks down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, which are released through the cell membranes. Fat content is then transported around the body to tissues where it will be “burned off” during a period of post-treatment exercise.
Exercise creates a demand in our bodies for extra energy. The body responds to this demand by releasing stored fat content to be used as fuel, but the release can come from anywhere in the body. Through the use of low level lasers, i-Lipo mimics the body’s natural fat burning process, allowing you to target an area of your body for fat burning even before you begin exercising.
Frequently Asked Questions:
HOW MANY LASER FAT REDUCTION TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
A course of treatment for most of our fat reduction patients consists of eight sessions. Your number of treatments, however, is determined at your consultation and is based on your requirements and goals. We suggest one to two treatments a week, over 1-2 month, to complete a course of treatments.
HOW LONG IS EACH TREATMENT?
An i-Lipo laser fat reduction treatment takes 35 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 breasts. 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 the fat reduction treatment in order to confirm suitability.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes. Independent clinical studies have shown i-Lipo to be completely safe with no side effects. The lasers simply triggers a natural metabolic reaction in fat cells to release some of their fat. The process does not cause any damage and cells remain intact, just smaller, giving immediate results.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
Results are long-term, provided your carbohydrate intake and eating plan are managed, and you engage in regular exercise. Further treatments can be performed to correct diet indulgence or target another area of the body.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Often results can be seen immediately and improve with every treatment. Over the course of eight sessions, you can achieve dramatic reshaping of the body and reduction in cellulite. Call us today at 703-273-6373 and shed those inches!
