Non Invasive Liposuction
Low level lasers have been utilized as effective treatments in fat reduction for several years. The i-Lipo low level lasers are released through the treatment pads, triggering a chemical signal in the fat cells that breaks down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, which are released through the cell membranes. Fat content is then transported around the body to tissues where it will be "burned off" during a period of post-treatment exercise.
Exercise creates a demand in our bodies for extra energy. The body responds to this demand by releasing stored fat content to be used as fuel, but the release can come from anywhere in the body. Through the use of low level lasers, i-Lipo mimics the body's natural fat burning process, allowing you to target an area of your body for fat release even before you begin exercising.
How many treatments will I need?
Treatments are strcuctured into courses of eight. Your number of treatments, however is a determined at your consultation and is based on your requirements and goals. We suggest two treatments a week over four weeks to complete a course of treatments.
How long is each treatment?
i-Lipo laser tretment takes just 20 minutes. The length of time for your post-treatment exercise to "burn off" the free fatty acids is determined at your consultation and is based on your requirements and goals.
Is it comfortable?
Most people feel very little during the treatment and find it comfortable and relaxing. The typical sensation felt is a slight warmth where the treatment pads are in contact with your skin.
It is suitable for everyone?
i-Lipo can be used on both men and women and can treat all areas of the body except the female breasts. As with any treatment, people with certain medical conditions should not use i-Lipo. Your i-Lipo practitioner will go through a full medical questionnaire and consultation prior to treatment to confirm suitability.
Is it safe?
Yes. Independent clinical studies have shown i-Lipo to be completely safe with no side effects. The laser simply triggers a natural reaction of fat cell release. The process does not cause any damage and cells remain intact, just smaller, giving immediate results.
How long will the results last?
Results are long-term, provided your calorie intake and eating plan is stable, and you engage in regular exercise. Further treatments can be performed to correct diet indulgence or target another area of the body.
When will I see results?
Often results can be seen immediately and improve with every treatment. Over the course of eight sessions, you can achieve dramatic reshaping of the body and fat reduction.

What is Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasound Cavitation is a relatively new aesthetic treatment. Using leading edge technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system. Generally one fat cavitation treatment lasts 25 – 30 minutes where a single part of the body is treated. 72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat. The minimum suggested number of fat cavitation sessions is between 6 and 10.
Which are the areas where treatment is more effective?
All those areas with localized fat: thighs, abdomen, flanks, and buttocks are the most popular but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body.
How does Ultrasound Cavitation work?
Our therapist will apply a specially designed hand piece to your skin. The hand piece will then transmit low level ultrasonic waves which consist of compression – expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. This back and forth cycle then causes an infinite quantity of micro-cavities or micro-bubbles that gradually enlarge. This progressive enlargement finishes as micro-bubbles start to collide and implode, producing shock waves that favor emulsification and elimination of fat tissues (this phenomena is called “cavitation”). The liquid is then easily vacuumed out from the body using the lymphatic and urinary system.
Is ultrasound cavitation painful and safe?
No, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable. This treatment is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia – it’s non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or the need for any post-operative course) and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment.
Can you lose weight with ultrasonic cavitation?
Cavitation is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, the famous “love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise. Treatments remove cellulite preventing fat cells from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system.
Fat is a solid substance right? How can it be eliminated through the urine?
Because ultrasound cavitation causes an emulsification of fat, converting it into a substance easy to eliminate through the urinary and the lymphatic system.
What do I need to do before my treatments?
We recommend a low calorie diet and drink at least 1.5 litres of water before and after the session. Drinking water is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat. Regular exercise such as walking or other aerobic activities should also be maintained in order to help the system to naturally process the fat after the treatment.
Number of treatments and treatment frequency for each area?
• Ultrasound Cavitation: 6–12 treatments spaced 72 hours apart.
Advantages over other treatments:
• Non invasive treatment
• No need for hospitalization nor anesthesia
• No scars nor long term marking of the skin
• Very little discomfort
• Elimination of the fat through a natural process
• 20-60 min per session
Preparation before each treatment:
Drink at least 1.5 to 2 litters of water a day a week before your treatment. Choose an area you wanted to treat and start moisturizing that area thoroughly everyday and at night. Hydration will help make the treatment a lot more successful.
