The i-Lipo system emits low levels of laser energy which disrupts the fat cell membranes releasing intra-cellular fat. This causes the cell to lose its round shape by changing the permeability of the cell membrane. This does not affect the neighbouring structures such as skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves. Triglycerides spill out from the broken cell membrane and are released into the interstitial space where they are slowly transported through the body’s natural metabolic functions and are used by the body as an energy source. Light exercise post treatment can accelerate the breakdown and removal of fat from the area.

It works equally well for men and women. There are a few medical conditions that would prevent treatment. A full medical questionnaire will be completed by your i-lipo therapist at the first consultation. Best results are achieved by healthy adults who wish to spot reduce particular problem areas.
For maximum results a course of 8 treatments is recommended per body area, twice per week.
A typical i-lipo session takes 30 minutes. 30-40 minutes of exercise is then necessary either immediately after, or within a few hours of i lipo. The aim is to burn 300 calories after each i-LIPO session to assist with the removal of fat stores through energy use.
