Non-surgical body contouring procedures offer an affordable and low-maintenance way to dissolve excess fat. They’re ideal for people who want to eradicate those trouble zones (love handles, anyone?) without dealing with the pain, costs, and downtime associated with liposuction surgery. Introducing iLipo, the latest body contouring procedure on the market. iLipo first became popular in the United Kingdom and Canada before recently making its way stateside. iLipo has been proven to reduce patient body fat by 30%—that’s comparable to liposuction surgery. Read on to learn more about iLipo and how it compares to traditional liposuction and other liposuction alternatives.
What is iLipo?
iLipo is a form of laser lipolysis, similar to treatments like Zerona™ and Lipodissolve™. It uses the harnessed power of light and energy to effectively break down unwanted fat deposits. The fat is then naturally released through metabolic energy, as in natural weight loss. Unlike SmartLipo™, iLipo requires no needles, anesthesia, or recovery time. But it does require some perseverance— experts recommend 8 total sessions for optimal results. Patients will be able to attend an iLipo session and return to their regular activities immediately afterward. It’s important that patients of iLipo and other body contouring procedures have realistic expectations; a non-surgical procedure simply cannot remove large amounts of excess fat like a surgical procedure can. Looking for dramatic weight loss? Try tumescent liposuction.
How iLipo Works
iLipo uses a visible red diode laser to gently pass through the skin and reach the fat layer. The energy from the laser breaks down the existing triglycerides into fatty acids and glycerol. These materials are then naturally exerted through energy—that’s why iLipo experts recommend increasing your physical activity after an iLipo session.
iLipo Risks and Side Effects
With iLipo, you won’t have to worry about all of the major risks and side effects associated with surgery (anesthesia complications, internal punctures, infection, recovery period). Still, iLipo does have some minor side effects: discomfort after the procedure, swelling, bruising, and numbness are considered normal. More serious risks include skin burns from the laser, uneven fat distribution, and internal damage.
