Body Contouring and i-Lipo Q&A

What is i-Lipo?

I-Lipo is an award-winning laser system designed to reduce body fat and help you lose inches quickly. The noninvasive treatment is safe and effective and can treat a number of different parts of your body, such as:

  • Arms
  • Thighs and hips
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  • Chin and face
  • Stomach

In addition to shrinking fat cells, the revolutionary system may also help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

How does i-Lipo work?

I-Lipo uses a low-energy laser light to shrink fat cells. When placed on the treatment area, the laser targets the fat under your skin and forces the cell to break down the fat into free fatty acids. The fat cell then forces the fatty acids out, shrinking in size, and your body gets rid of the fat through normal processing.

The laser is calibrated to only target the fat cells under your skin, so it doesn’t affect your skin, blood vessels, nerves, or muscles.

You may lose inches quickly after treatment. However, i-Lipo isn’t a weight loss system, and the ideal candidate should be close to her goal body weight with a body mass index of 30 or less.

What can I expect during treatment with i-Lipo?

I-Lipo is a non-invasive, painless procedure. During treatment, Dr. Jain places the laser wand over the fatty area, and the light penetrates the skin to target the fat. You may feel a warm sensation as the laser moves over your skin.

The entire treatment takes about 20 minutes.

After treatment, you may be able to resume your regular activities. To improve the odds that the effects will last, Dr. Jain recommends you engage in light exercise following the procedure.

How many treatments do I need?

You may see a significant improvement in the shape of your body after only one treatment. However, for best results, Dr. Jain recommends eight treatments twice a week for four weeks.

What happens after body contouring?

Though the i-Lipo system can give you the body you want, you need to continue to eat a healthy diet and engage in regular exercise to maintain the results. Your fat cells may be smaller, but if you eat more calories than you burn, those fat cells may grow. 

If you’re struggling to get the perfect body, Dr. Jain can help. Call the office or book an appointment online.
