I-LipoŽ, Do You?

The non-invasive laser
irradiation for targeted fat cell depletion, inch loss
I-LipoŽ is not another
gimmick filling the cosmetic surgery/contouring market.
I-LipoŽ is a non-invasive treatment for unwanted fat
areas, meaning no needles, no suction tube under your
skin, no knives, no pain and no down-time. I-Lipo has
received FDA clearance for circumferential reduction and
is the first non-invasive skin contact system to receive
If this sounds too good
to be true, realize that there are not only prizes at
prestigious cosmetic events, but also placebo controlled
studies. This means that the effect of the method was
compared to a sham set up. The comparison showed a
measurable and immediate reduction in the circumference
measurements of the patients with the active treatment.
The difference was 2.4 cm which is almost an inch. This
was only after 1 treatment, the full treatment consists
of 8 twenty minute laser sessions and a 10-15 minute
ultra suction/massaging of the broken fat cell content
into the lymph system.
Central Florida UroGynecology we have numerous success
stories. One of my favorite stories is from Ann, who
gave me permission to share her story. Ann is a classy
octogenarian, with nice well fitted clothes. She and I
also noticed a significant flattening of her abdomen! After her
third session, Ann decided to walk off her calories
while shopping, only to have her previously well-fitted
pants fall to her knees in the store.
I-LipoŽ is a
non-invasive laser diode system, being used for fat
reduction and body reshaping. The laser stimulates the
contents of the fat cell to come out of the cell,
through its cell membrane pores. In liposuction as the
Smart LipoŽ this is used to eliminate the need for
prolonged tunneling. The I-LipoŽ has advanced this
technology to a non-invasive body reshaping treatment.
The I-lipoŽ uses 650 nm
visible red laser diodes, a wavelength that has been
shown to target the mitochondria (functions in energy
production in the cell) of the adipose (fat) cells. Too
complicated? It produces an enzyme that breaks down the
bulky triglyceride into glycerol and fatty acids and
this will escape through the pores. The lymphatic system
will take this up. That is why one single diode laser
probe is also placed in each groin when the abdomen is
treated or nearest lymph node for other targeted areas.
difference with the Cerona laser treatment is that the
I-Lipo is placed directly on the skin, has 7 times more
laser diodes and was specifically developed for the
non-invasive release of fat cell content.
The difference with
Smart-LipoŽ is obviously that the I-LipoŽ is
non-invasive, no cutting, no suction, no pain. Also
I-LipoŽ works like a targeted exercise and does not
remove fat cells, but make them smaller. The advantage
is that the fat cells will not return in another area of
the body, like was shown in a new England Journal of
Medicine study to be happening a year after liposuction.
Published results of 20
patients after 1 single I-LipoŽ treatment of the abdomen
show a 2.25 cm (0.98 inch) to 12.75 cm ( 4.9
inches)decline of circumference of 3 added areas over
During I-Lipo you can
specifically target unwanted fat deposits. Patients will
lose weight, fat content and will reduce their body fat
index. It can add to a healthy life style or give that
quick result that will motivate you to continue to live
a healthy lifestyle.
For the real skeptics,
who think that the loss of inches is purely temporary or
contributed to water loss: there is continued loss with
additional treatments and fat loss has been confirmed by
ultrasound observations. In other words a course of
I-Lipo in conjunction with an appropriate diet and
exercise regimen will offer the ability for significant
long-term reshaping and contouring of certain chosen
areas of the body.
When is I-LipoŽ good
for you? For everybody who has unwanted fat areas it
will offer a significant advantage. However if you want
to lose weight, would like to start living and eating
healthier, it will provide you with a great jump start
and incentive. If you are working out and have those
areas that do not seem to slim like the rest of your
body, I-lipoŽ will work great for you also.
Okay, I will admit it,
I used it to, and guess what, some of my patients
noticed it and have signed up for I-LipoŽ too.
