I-Lipo Treatment Lexington, KY
i-Lipo is an FDA-cleared, nonsurgical fat-reduction procedure, also known as laser lipolysis. Unlike surgical liposuction, the low level laser energy of i-Lipo doesn’t remove fat cells, and it doesn’t destroy them, like many other nonsurgical body-contouring treatments. Instead, it shrinks body fat by breaking down fat cell contents called triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol. The fat cell contents are released, and your body naturally eliminates through the lymphatic system over the coming weeks and months.
The intelligent alternative to liposuction
i-Lipo™ is the latest in laser lipolysis, offering you a way to achieve inch loss and body contouring with no pain, no needles and no down time. Advanced Skin & Vein Care Centers offer I Lipo at Lexington and Georgetown, Kentucky. 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 you diet in the adipose tissue. The brain is in control of when the contents are released, and then metabolized into energy. You can compare the adipose cells to a re-chargeable battery, sometimes used and sometimes stored up depending on diet and exercise. I-lipo is used to trigger the release of the contents, without exercise, and is able to target the precise stubborn areas. I-lipo is non-invasive with no pain, no needles, and no downtime. Patients can expect results of losing 1-2 dress sizes during their course of treatments. I-Lipo is best paired with with a change in lifestyle to maintain your results, typically just simple diet and exercise. The low level laser used in i-lipo creates a photobiomodulation effect, altering the cells chemistry and triggering a release of a lipase enzyme that can break down triglyceride molecules into fatty acids and glycerol molecules. This process now makes them small enough to exit through your prose and be used as fuel by your metabolism. Naturally, your lymphatic system carries the cell contents and removes them. i-lipo maximizes the body’s lymphatic flow through stimulation of the nodes in your treatment area. It is recommended to exercise following treatment in order to burn up the newly released fatty acids and glycerol in order to completely remove them from your body’s fat storage. i-lipo is very easy to use and handle compared to other laser and light treatment systems. The practitioner only has to position the client correctly with the i-lipo device, and is then hands free to perform other treatments, maximizing your clinics earnings during treatment sessions. The i-lipo treatment is quick and simple, being completed in less than 30 minutes. The course of treatment should be 8 sessions, performed twice a week so body reshaping can be complete in four weeks. Only 1 area is treated per day in order to maximize the burning off of the contents. If there is an excess of content in need of being burned off then there is a risk that it will be stored back as fat again. Once a patient has completed a course of treatments they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep their results. After i-lipo treatment nutritional supplements are also used to maintain and encourage metabolic activity and to support a healthier lifestyle.
How does it work?
The i-Lipo emits low levels of laser energy, which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them though channels in the cell membranes. The fatty acids and glycerol are then 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 used stored energy reserves, thus i-Lipo is not creating any unnatural reaction in the body nor does it affect or damage any surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves. A period of exercise post treatment will ensure the complete metabolism and thus elimination from the body of the freed fatty acids.
The i-Lipo system has many advantages over other similar systems, here are just a few…
Independent clinical studies have shown i-Lipo to be, in some cases, comparable to results achieved by liposuction. Ultrasound imagery shows up to 30% reduction in the fat layer depth after just one treatment. Additional treatments improve results further. Results can be seen immediately after each treatment as the fat cell contents are released. Light exercise post treatment can accelerate the removal of the released fat.
Compared to surgical liposuction and other Ultrasound or laser techniques i-Lipo is much more affordable with similar results.
Safe and Painless
i-Lipo uses low levels of visible red laser light to create a safe and painless bio-stimulation effect in the targeted fat tissue. This stimulation is of the normal chemical pathways which the body uses to free up energy resources when required, so i-Lipo does not produce any abnormal effects in the body or damage body tissue such as cells, blood vessels or neighboring nerves or vital organs. The treatment can be performed on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored and you can return to normal activity immediately after treatment.
Results can be seen immediately after treatment. Typically a 2-4cm loss in abdomen circumference can be achieved with every treatment. A course of 8 treatments is recommended over 4 weeks with 2 treatments per week.
Targeted fat reduction
i-Lipo can target fat reduction in specific problem area. By positioning the laser pads on the target area such as chin, upper arms, abdomen or thighs fat can be broken down and removed specifically from that area. This is a big advantage over diet and exercise which can reduce overall body fat but not shape individual areas.
Frequently Asked Questions About I-Lipo:
What areas can be treated with i-Lipo?
The treatment works well on the abdomen, thighs, back, and hips.
How many treatments are needed?
Two-three treatments per week for a total of 8 treatments are needed for maximum results.
I have seen similar treatments, are they the same?
No, i-Lipo is different from other treatments. Some companies have tried to copy i-Lipo but do not offer the same power or treatment of 36 diode lasers.
Do I need to be on a diet for i-Lipo to work?
No, there is no need to restrict calories during the treatments, however, to maximize your results, you could decrease your caloric intake by 300-400 calories a day, which is simple to do.
Do I need to come in for maintenance treatments?
No, maintenance treatments are not necessary as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes eating healthy and being active.
How long is the treatment?
The actual treatment time will be 20 minutes. Plus time for exercise following the treatment.
Is the treatment painful?
No, a slight warm sensation is often felt.
What is the average inch loss per treatment?
This will depend on a few factors. Your measurements will be taken several times during your series. Most patients will see an immediate loss after just one treatment. We have had some patients lose as much as 5 inches (over 3 measurements) in just one treatment, however, 1-2 inches (over 3 measurements) is typical. Obviously, the more committed you are to a healthy lifestyle, the better results you will have.
