The human body stores excess calories from your diet in adipose tissue (stored fat). When needed, those fat cells will break down their stored triglycerides into free fatty acids, glycerol and water, providing the body with energy. That same metabolic process, induced hormonally by the brain, can also be triggered by low level laser energy delivered by both i-Lipo and Zerona.
i-Lipo is a revolutionary, non-invasive technology offering convenient, safe and pain free body shaping and cellulite reduction. To achieve immediate and measurable inch loss, i-Lipo uses low level laser technology (LLLT) to stimulate the body’s natural process for releasing its stored energy from adipose tissue and shrinking those fat cells.
Patients who have received a full treatment regimen typically report a 10% inch loss. A recent study from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which included 34 volunteers, found that over 70% of participants experienced significant inch loss, thus validating the use of i-Lipo for fat reduction. I-Lipo is the first direct skin contact laser device designed for fat reduction and body contouring to receive FDA approval for circumferential reduction.
Treatment with i-Lipo
Treatment with i-Lipo takes as little as 20 minutes, can be used on all skin types, year-round, and has no down time. Two treatments per week for four weeks is recommended. Any area that has stored fat can be treated including the waistline, thighs, arms, legs and even under the chin.
Like i-Lipo, Zerona is a non-invasive, convenient, safe and pain free technology used to reduce fat and contour the body. It uses cold laser technology to emulsify fat allowing it to move into interstitial space. A recent study utilized to compare the results of those being treated with Zerona showed that on average, clients lost 3.64 inches from the circumference of their waste compared to .5 inches lost by those in the placebo group. Zerona is also FDA approved and has been featured on The Doctors as well as the Rachael Ray show.
Treatment with Zerona
Treatment with Zerona takes about 40 minutes – 20 minutes on the front and 20 minutes on the back of the targeted area. Zerona typically requires a series of 12 treatments, occurring every other day for 4 weeks. There is no down time when being treated with Zerona.
