I-lipo is a new revolutionary system that uses low level lasers for smoothing cellulite, fat reduction, and body shaping treatments. The I-lipo uses photobiomodulation to stimulate the body’s natural process for releasing stored content in the adipose cells. Every day, the human body is storing excess calories from your diet in the adipose tissue. The brain is in control of when the contents are released, and then metabolized into energy.
How it works?
When the laser paddles are placed on the skin, the cold red laser beams penetrate the skin just deep enough to reach the layers of fat. When the light hits the fat cells, a rapid chain of events takes place. Firstly, pores form on the cells causing them to spill out. The water, Glycerol and fatty acids move into the interstitial space beneath the fatty layer in the skin. Then further water, fatty acids and Glycerol spill out. The adipocyte cells are therefore reduced in size.
These effects do not affect the neighboring structures such as the skin, blood vessels or nerves.
The lymphatic system then removes the fat through the venous system, where they are processed in the same way as fatty foods that are digested.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend 2 treatments per week for 4 weeks.
Can I have more than one course?
Yes but it is essential to have a two week gap between courses.
Do I have have to workout after i–lipo treatments?
Yes you must work out at least within 12 hours of receiving your treatment. If you are not willing to work out and modify your diet, it is best you do not perform this treatment. Working out after I-lipo treamtents gives the body a way to metabolize and excrete the fat that is broken down. If you don’t do a workout after your I-lipo session, you run the risk of the released fat being absorbed by other cells since your lymphatic system is not actively draining it.
Why do I have to workout after I-lipo treatments?
Once the fat cells are broken down after I-lipo treatments, the contents of the fat cells need a way to exit the body. If they do not exit the body within a few hours, they get reabsorbed by other fat cells. A brief workout immediately after an I-lipo treatment ensures that the fat is excreted via the lymphatic system.
Can I have more than one area treated at one time?
Yes if you are prepared to do more cardio vascular exercise.
Will the inches stay off after a treatment?
If you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine then yes.
What actually happens to the fat?
The fat cells are undamaged; but due to the reaction of the laser light on the cell it will empty the contents. The contents consist of Water, Glycerol and free fatty acids. Following a treatment, the Glycerol is rapidly absorbed by the body. The water carries the free fatty acids, through the lymphatic system, through the kidneys and are then passed out of the body in your urine.
Does the treatment hurt?
No. There is no pain at all.
Will I have to keep coming back to keep my results?
No, you can retain the results subject to your lifestyle – healthy eating and exercise plan.
How can I monitor my results?
At every session you will be weighed and measured and you will be photographed before your first treatment and following your last.
