Non-Surgical Fat Treatment – i-Lipo
Sometimes diet and exercise just aren’t enough to get rid of fat deposits in the abdomen, hips, and thighs. These “problem areas” are not only frustrating, but can often result in an individual feeling self-conscious, uncomfortable, or just generally dissatisfied with his or her physical appearance. While some patients may elect to undergo cosmetic surgery to address these issues, others are more hesitant because of the associated risks, downtime and potential complications.
At South Coast Plastic Surgery, we offer i-Lipo Laser treatment — a non-surgical solution for fat burning that can help you achieve the results you have always desired.
The i-Lipo Laser is a non-invasive fat-burning technology that uses low-level light lasers to shrink fat cells without damaging the fat cell or surrounding tissue. The fat is released from the tissue and expelled from the body through the body’s natural processes. The result is a significant reduction in fat with a healthier, more defined body contour.
So if you are searching for body contouring, cellulite reduction and a slimmer, firmer shape — all with no pain, no needles and no downtime — then this cutting-edge technology may be the answer for you.
The i-Lipo low-level light lasers are administered through the treatment pads placed on targeted areas of your body. The lasers then trigger a chemical signal in the fat tissue to release stored triglycerides, glycerol and water through the cell membranes. Fat content is then transported to tissues where the body can burn it off during a period of post-treatment exercise. Aerobic exercise within two hours of your treatment is imperative for burning off the released fatty acids.
Treatments are structured into courses of eight. Your number of treatments, however, is determined at your consultation and will be based on your specific needs and goals.
Each treatment takes just 20 minutes. The length of time for the post-treatment exercise is based on each individual patient’s body composition and desired results. The standard course consists of eight treatments, performed twice a week.
Most people find the i-Lipo treatment to be comfortable and relaxing. The sensation is usually described as a slight warmth where the treatment pads are placed.
This treatment is great for both men and women and can target all areas of the body except the female breasts.
The results are long-term, provided you maintain a healthy diet and exercise plan.
