New i-LipoXcell

The Harley Medical Group | Non Surgical Fat ReductionWHAT I-LIPOXCELL DOES

I-LipoXcell is a clinically proven, extensively tested, and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared treatment. There are up to three stages for the treatment which combines Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), vacuum massage and radio frequency to achieve*:

  • Body shaping
  • Fat reduction
  • Cellulite improvement
  • Skin tightening

Your counsellor will advise you which stages are right for you to ensure you receive the best possible results.

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW*

  • Safe, comfortable & affordable treatment
  • Immediate results, improving with each session
  • Targeted fat reduction and cellulite smoothing treatment
  • Clinically proven: ultrasound imagery shows up to 30% reduction in the fat layer depth after just one treatment
  • Safe results by bio-stimulation of natural metabolic pathway rather than tissue destruction
  • Excellent value and compares favourably with other laser techniques

 

How it works

i-Lipo uses a clinically-proven technique which stimulates the body’s natural response to fat-burning using low-level laser energy, targeting particular areas of the body where excess fat has built up. When the body needs to draw upon stored energy reserves, it releases fatty acids and glycerol to be metabolised and to create energy. The laser treatment stimulates fat cells in the body to begin the process in a controlled way.

The process

The treatment will consist of the following four elements:

Body Analysis

Prior to treatment your body fat will be analysed to ascertain fat / muscle mass, your body fat will then be broken down into Essential Fat, Reserve Fat and Excess Fat allowing your practitioner to assess your responsiveness to the treatment. 

The process is completely painless*, a near infrared light beam is aimed at the mid-point of your bicep and the light reflected is measured - fat absorbs the light beam and muscle reflects it.

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

LLLT pads, each with 15 laser diodes of varying nanometers, are placed on the area to be treated.

The laser stimulates a chemical change inside the cell that creates pores in the cell wall and triggers a breakdown of the enclosed Triglycerides (type of fat found in blood) into fatty acids and glycerol, which are released from the cell. 

Lymphatic stimulation with low levels of laser during the treatment will support the removal of fat via the lymphatic system to the body's tissue. This will then be used up during your recommended post treatment exercise. 

A gentle thermal heating of the area will be applied to stimulate the underlying tissue and aid fat release from the cells.

Ultra Vacuum Massage

The treatment results are enhanced when followed directly with vacuum massage, which provides additional lymphatic drainage to the treated tissues*.   

The vacuum and knuckled rollers work the tissue to enhance blood flow bringing oxygen and nutrients to the location and aiding in the removal of toxins and waste products.

Radiofrequency

High frequency radio electric waves are focussed deep into the dermis which result in a thermal energy being produced in the tissue. This causes*:

  • Existing skin collagen to contract and tone tightening the skin
  • Creation of new connective tissue fibres
  • Stimulation of cellular functions and improved blood circulation to support cell lipolysis (the breakdown of lipids)

*ILipoXcell results and benefits vary and are different for every individual. Specific results cannot be guarantee.

 

Benefits 

There are numerous benefits to this treatment for fat removal in addition to it being painless, fast and clinically proven to be highly effective*:

  • Able to easily target stubborn pockets of fat with no downtime.
  • A risk free, FDA cleared laser treatment.
  • Optimum and long term benefits’ will be maintained through healthy diet and excercise.
  • Fat cells are not destroyed, and unlike other methods there is less risk of future storage around vital organs.

  • Suitable for all skin types and tones.

Aftercare

iLipo Aftercare

Non invasive liposuction is not a weight loss tool but should be used to treat stubborn pockets of fat that healthy eating and exercise combined have not been able to address*.

Before treatment Advice

The treatment is non-invasive so does not require much preparation but we do have some pre treatment recommendations:

  • Wear loose fitting and comfortable clothing.
  • Do not apply any creams/oils on the day of treatment or any sun tanning lotions to the area during the treatment course. 
  • Don't eat a heavy meal (carbohydrate or fat rich) less than two hours prior to your treatment
  • Don't cut the calories either! Eat sensibly and avoid restricting your calorie intake
  • Keep well hydrated to support lymphatic drainage
  • Avoid caffeine or fizzy drinks as these can have a bloating effect

Essentially think about how you would prepare for a gym session, the preparation for your treatment is much the same. 

After Treatment Advice

As a safe and painless treatment, i-LipoXcell has no down-time which means you can return to your normal activities immediately, however for optimum results we do have some post treatment recommendations:

  • Continue to keep well hydrated throughout that day
  • Do not eat a heavy meal but rather opt for something light that is low in carbohydrates and fat.
  • Increase physical activity within two hours of treatment to help 'burn-off' released fat call cells is essential. While a gym session would be the ideal if you can't fit this into your schedule a brisk walk is a good alternative, but any cardiovascular exercise for 30-45mins will suffice.

Maintenance

Laser lipo does not alter your body's genetics by removing fat cells as surgical Liposuction will, in order to maintain the results achieved  we recommend a healthy lifestyle of exercise and balanced diet is maintained. However we understand that there are times in our lives when a healthy lifestyle gets put on hold, holidays for example, so maintenance options are available.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long will it take?

Non surgical liposuction treatment time will depend on the area size being treated, your nurse wil be able to advise you at your free, no obligation consultation. We would request you allow approximately an hour from start to finish.  

At The Harley Medical Group we recommend a course of eight treatments, for optimum results you would have two treatments a week for four weeks. 

For further treatments to new areas we recommend a two week break.

How many iLipo treatments will I need?

Most clients see noticable results after their first treatment, you can expect to lose a minimum of up to 2cms per treatment, for optimum results we recommend a course of eight treatments*. We recommend a course of eight because each person reacts differently to the treatment depending on their weight, body shape and area treated. Some patients see fast, impressive results to begin which settle towards the end of the course while others notice little difference at the start but see significant results at the end.

I have just had a baby, can I be treated?

It is possible to treat a lady 6 weeks postpartum for non invasive lipo, there are no contraindications. However, at The Harley Medical Group we will not treat you if you are breastfeeding as your fat will be in 'storage mode' for the baby and you will not see the best results possible. 

Does it matter if I have tattoos or body piercing?

Yes this is a consideration for treatment. 

The low-level laser technology (LLLT) cannot be used over tattoos, if you have a tattoo we will not treat this area. If you have a small tattoo we can treat around the area. If you are thinking of getting a tattoo in the treatment area you may want to consider postponing until you have undertaken the full course, approximately four weeks. 

Areas with body piercings can be treated but the jewellery must be removed wherever possible, if this is not possible we will cover the piercing with surgical tape and avoid the area during your treatment. 

Can laser lipo be used for male chest reduction?

Gynaecomastia is an increasing issue for men of all ages, degrees of fitness and backgrounds; we are often asked about treatments to help with male breasts, or 'moobs'.

I-LipoXcell can be used to treat male chest reduction. 

Come for Free Consultation at your local clinic, where your practitioner will be able to advise the right treatment for the best results. 

Can you treat all skin types including Asian / Afro Caribbean / Dark skin?

At The Harley Medical Group we treat all skin types, tones and colours.

Will I see dramatic results?

This is a difficult question to answer as it's relative to your expectations. Most of our clients see an average loss of two centimeters per treatment*.

There are also several things to consider*:

  • Laser Lipolysis should not be undertaken as a weight-loss tool but should be to remove stubborn pockets of fat as part of a healthy lifestyle. We would not expect to drop multiple dress sizes as this is not a healthy or responsible approach to weight loss. 
  • It is a course which will reduce fat in the area treated a bit at a time it can feel like the treatment is not as effective as you would like, but when measurements are taken before and after a significant decrease in mass has been recorded in all patients. 
  • The treatment is part of a healthy balanced lifestyle, you should maintain a steady calorie intake both before and after the treatment. Increased calories or reduction in exercise during the treatment may result in no noticable fat reduction, this is because the non surgical liposuction is counteracting the change in your lifestyle to maintain a balance.

What is the difference between surgical and non surgical liposuction?

First off we should say that technically "Liposuction" refers to a surgical procedure, "Non Surgical Liposuction" is really a fat reduction treatment, rather than strictly being a form of Liposuction.

There are numerous differences between surgical and non surgical liposuction, which procedure is right depends on patient requirements and expectations. Your nurse will talk you through all your options at your free consultation but the following are some of the points of difference:

Non Surgical Fat Reduction (Liposuction)*

  • Does not remove but normalises fat cells, fat cell empties, the cell doesnt need to grow again as not removed or damaged, it will simply refill if weight is put back on.
  • Depending on the area treated can be performed in under an hour and requires no anaesthetic
  • Non invasive procedure 
  • No downtime, following your treatment you can return to your normal daily activities
  • Can treat all areas of the body - except female breasts
  • The treatment can also tighten skin, so it can be performed on all skin elasticity types
  • Subtle, though noticeable results
  • Smooth and even results

Surgical Liposuction*

  • Removes fat cells - fat will not develop again in the area treated.
  • Will take up to approximately two hours and requires a general anaesthetic
  • Invasive procedure
  • Downtime directly after surgery, recovery for up to two weeks
  • Designed to treat larger areas with greater fat deposits
  • ​Will not tighten skin - only recommended for patients with good skin elasticity
  • More dramatic and defined results following swelling

What does iLipo treat?

ILipo has been widely tested internationally and clinically proven for*:

  • Body shaping
  • Fat reduction
  • Cellutite improvement
  • Skin tightening

 

*ILipoXcell results and benefits vary and are different for every individual. Specific results cannot be guaranteed. 

Is laser lipo safe?

I-lipo is a clinically proven and FDA* cleared treatment for fat reduction. It requires no incisions to be made into the skin removing risk of wound infection. As it is a non invasive liposuction it removes risk to internal organs which is a possibility with a surgical procedure, moreover as cells are not destroyed unlike other methods there is less risk of future storage around vital organs.

*US Food and Drug Administration 

What's the difference between iLipo and Vaser lipo?

There are numerous differences between iLipo and Vaser liposuction - the main being one is surgical (Vaser lipo) and the other non surgical (iLipo). Your nurse will be able to answer all of your questions at your free consultation but we will address some key differences*:

Vaser Lipo*

  • Surgical procedure that requires incisions and anaesthetic
  • A little soreness or discomfort around treatment area reported for several days after procedure 
  • A few patients experience bruising for up to four weeks
  • Causes some swelling 
  • Fat cells are remove, not reduced, so fat will not return to the treated area unless considerable weight is gained

iLipo*

  • Non surgical treatment that does not require anaesthetic
  • A painless procedure with no downtime or recovery time
  • There may be redness which disappears within a couple of hours
  • Causes no swelling
  • Tightens skin as part of the treatment - additional alternative treatments are not required 
  • Treatment course and a healthy lifestyle will yield optimum results, additional treatments can be acquired to maintain results. 

 

*ILipoXcell results and benefits vary and are different for every individual. Specific results cannot be guarantee.

Will I have bruising or swelling?

This is non surgical liposuction, there are no incisions  to cause bruising or swelling. You may experience some redness directly after the treatment if you have sensetive skin but this resolves quickly*. This indicates the increase of localised blood flow to the tissue by the massaging action and radiofrequency treatment stage.

 

*ILipoXcell results and benefits vary and are different for every individual. Specific results cannot be guarantee.

I've been looking for 'lunchtime lipo', is this it?

I-Lipo is a clinically proven, quick, painless and effective fat removal treatment with no downtime*,  it can be taken in a lunch time allowing you to return to normal workday activities after.  

It is worth remembering that some cardiovascular exercise is required for optimum results within two hours of your treatment.

What Should I Know About Fat Cells? 

Fat cells are not just storage bins for excess calories. They are very active cells that produce a variety of substances that influence your body weight, how many calories you eat, and how those calories are used as a source of energy. Health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, liver disease, cardiovascular disease, and certain types of cancer, can arise when these cells begin to secrete too much or too little of these substances.

You are born with a set number of fat cells. If you eat more calories than your body needs, your fat cells stretch to store these extra calories as triglycerides. You can gain new fat cells if the existing cells have enlarged to their maximum size. Once created, fat cells remain in your body forever; they may shrink in size when you lose weight, but they never go away — unless they are removed by liposuction.
