iLipo Newport Beach
I-Lipo can be used on both men and women and can treat most areas of the body except the female breast. As with any treatment, people with certain medical conditions should not use the i-Lipo. Your i-Lipo practitioner will go through a full medical questionnaire and consultation prior to treatment to confirm suitability. I-Lipo is not recommended for patients that are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a history of malignancy, or have diabetes.
During an i-Lipo treatment a laser is used to stimulate the body’s natural process for breaking down and releasing stored content in the fat cells. Once the fat cells are broken down after i-Lipo treatments, the contents of the fat cells need a way to exit the body. If they do not exit the body within a few hours, they get reabsorbed by other fat cells. A brief workout immediately after an i-Lipo treatment ensures that the fat is excreted via the lymphatic system. Working out after i-Lipo treatments gives the body a way to metabolize and excrete the fat that is broken down. If you don’t do a workout after your i-Lipo session, you run the risk of the released fat being absorbed by other cells since your lymphatic system is not actively draining it.
The treatment is not painful. Most people feel very little during their i-Lipo treatment and find it comfortable and relaxing. The typical sensation felt is slight warmth where the treatment pads are in contact with your skin. There is no recovery period and no down time after i-Lipo sessions.
