I-Lipo

i-Lipo is a proprietary brand of laser lipolysis technology (by Chromogenex), one of many which have flooded into the market in recent years in response to increased demand for plastic surgery procedures that are fast, convenient, non-invasive, and safe. i-Lipo utilizes low-level lasers in order to liquefy fat and remove it from the body. Unlike liposuction procedures, this one doesn't involve the use of a cannula. The application of the laser is external, and the removal of the fat is done through the body's own mechanisms. Lets have a look at how does i Lipo Work and how it differs from conventional Laser liposuction:


How does i Lipo Work


Instead of using a cannula, the doctor externally applies treatment pads to the targeted areas! The transmission of low-level laser beam (650nm) brings about a chemical signal which alters the cell's chemistry leading to the release of an enzyme called lipase. This enzyme breaks down triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol inside the fat cells. Then the fatty acids and glycerol are released though channels in the fat cell membranes. After that these compounds are transported to the body tissues and are metabolised to create energy. For more info on how i Lipo laser works have a look here.

You have to follow a session of 8 treatments in order for the full results to be achieved! Finally you have to follow post treatment physical exercise in order to make sure that the body will utilize all released fatty acids to create energy!Thirty to forty-five minutes of daily exercise post treatment is recommended! i Lipo can be applied in more than one body areas (which is definitely cost effective) but it is much safer to spread out your procedures.


Benefits


The process described above is an 100% natural response of the body, when there are energy needs. This is why i-Lipo is not creating any unnatural reaction in the body (like destroying fat cells and removing them via suction) and put the body through much less stress! What is also important is that the i Lipo process doesn't cause any damage in blood cells, peripheral nerves or skin (which is a usual complication in other techniques such as ultrasonic liposuction). Due to the above mentioned benefits i Lipo is a safer way to get rid of unwanted fat comparing to other lipolysis techniques.


Results


Results should be immediately clear after treatment, and you should be able to maintain the results over the long term as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. While the number of treatments vary, a typical course is 2 treatments per week for four weeks, though it may depend on how many areas you need done and also on how much fat you need removed. The average treatment takes about 2 cm off of the waistline, so it may take a while before you start noticing dramatic results. Of course many people who want plastic surgery want instant results, but the fact is, it is simply healthier and safer to take a gradual course at changing the shape of the body.
