I lipo is a revolutionary new therapy in the area of non-surgical cosmetic medicine. Utilising laser technology, i-Lipo reduces circumference and rebuilds your silhouette quickly and without causing any pain whatsoever.
How does i-lipo work?
I-lipo works by releasing small amounts of energy in the problematic areas of your body. These in turn generate chemical signals to the fat cells, triggering the hydrolysis of stored triglycerides into simpler, free fatty acids and glycerol. The latter then move through the cell membranes and their energy content becomes soon available for use by your tissue. And when combined with a modest amount of physical exercise, quick and easy burning of excess fat is guaranteed.
In layman’s terms, i lipo simply triggers and accelerates an otherwise fully natural process in your body, without affecting or damaging human tissue such as skin, blood vessels or peripheral nerves.
Clinical research on i-lipo
French clinical research center GREDECO has rated the performance of i-lipo in the reduction of cellulite and stored fat after eight 20-minute sessions. Fifteen patients, aged from 32 to 52, were chosen for monitoring, while the clinical trials of i lipo were focused on those areas of the body where stored fat is extremely resistant to reduction through physical exercise alone. Seven of the patients chose their thighs and eight chose their abdominal area as the area of application, while patients with known medical conditions were excluded from the trials.
Research protocol included an ultrasound measurement of the width and density of the fat tissue, a measurement of the patients’ total body weight, calculation of their body mass index (BMI), a measurement of their body composition as well as taking photographs of each body subject to the therapy. Measurements and photographs were taken before and after each session.
The results following 8 sessions were, on average, as follows:
Waist size: 105.25 cm from 109.41 cm
Thigh measurements: 60.04 cm from 61.57 cm
Fat measurement on thigh: 11.8% reduction on thighs, 11.5% on abdomen
Average weight loss: 1.4%, namely 1.37 kg (1 kg from thighs, 1.66 kg from abdomen)
Average fat content loss: 1.11 kg, 2.41% from thighs, 4.8% from abdomen
How many sessions are needed?
A series of 8 sessions in 4 weeks is recommended. Following each i-lipo session, the results are immediately visible, with a loss of as much as 1 centimeter per session.
Is I Lipo safe?
I lipo is completely safe, since it only emits low-energy infrared radiation in order to trigger fat cell activity in a safe and painless manner, in exactly the same way that the body itself acts when it needs to use up the energy stored in the fat cells. Furthermore, it is not harmful to nearby tissue, while it can be used on any skin phototype
Can it be used anywhere on my body?
I-lipo can be safely used on any area of the body with excess stored fat. With a special laser head, it can be applied with pinpoint accuracy on any area of the body, smaller or bigger, such as thighs, buttocks, arms, legs or the abdomen. This is a major advantage of i-lipo when compared to diet or physical exercise, which can of course reduce total body fat but not independently from a specific area.
What’s the difference between I lipo and other lipolysis methods?
I-lipo is an innovative new medical product that can utilize 4 different laser heads, thereby giving the possibility for a total of 36 independent therapies within a very small time span. It is also one of the few such methods, the machinery of which is manufactured in the United Kingdom by a major company in the area of cosmetic medicine.
