Slim i-Lipo is a non-invasive body contouring treatment with no anesthesia, pain, needles or downtime and is an ideal alternative to liposuction. Incorporated with 36 laser diodes to target more stubborn fatty deposits enhance lymphatic drainage, improve blood circulation and promote skin renewal.
Slim i-Lipo uses treatment pads placed on specific areas of the body. The infrared lasers creates a chemical signal and breaks down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol which are released through the cell membranes. The process of photobiomodulation in the fat cells to mimic your body’s natural process of releasing stored fats content is then transported around the body to tissues where it will be “burned off” during a period of post-treatment exercise.
Clinical studies show that i-lipo has comparable results that are achieved through liposuction surgery. There is a 30% reduction in the fat layer depth just after one treatment, and more can be achieved through more sessions. As the fat cell contents are released and excreted through the lymphatic system, immediate results can be seen after the treatment. It is recommended to do light exercise post treatment to accelerate the removal process of the released fat.
Slim i-Lipo can be done on the following areas:
- Upper Arms
- Front & Back thighs
How does Slim i-Lipo works?
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.
How soon can I see results?
Results can be seen immediately following treatment. Typical results are a 2-4cm loss in abdomen circumference after every treatment.
Eight treatments are recommended, two per week for four weeks.
