iLipo: The New Trend in Fat Removal

by fat.com
​i-Lipo is the new technology sucking out the fat of millions of Americans. For those patients who have extensively dieted and exercised with seeing little to no results, iLipo might be a perfect solution.  Liposuction is a terribly painful and evasive procedure that is expensive and risky. The down time associated with the surgery is enough to turn away any working professional or parent. iLipo is the newest laser technology that has been gaining popularity over the last four or five years.  Since the procedure is done via a tiny laser, it is completely non invasive and relatively painless compared to traditional liposuction. Even “Smart Lipo” is slightly invasive. There are no surgeons, no anesthesia, no bruising, and no risk of infection with iLipo.

Very low levels of laser energy are emitted to the problematic areas creating a chemical signal to the fat cells.  The cells release their fatty contents. Results vary from patient to patient, however in general a thirty percent or 2-4 inch reduction in circumference can be expected after one treatment. Patients can undergo as many treatments as they’d like.  Standard procedures will be performed 2 times a week for one month. Treatments normally last approximately 25 minutes.  

The advantages of iLipo are endless. You can go have your treatment on your lunch break, without having to worry about any down time or physical symptoms. The procedure itself feels like a gentle warming sensation sweeping across your body. Since it is this quick and easy, who needs to exercise! iLipo ranges in cost depending or area and amount of fat to be removed. Research your local clinics to compare pricing and reviews!
