FAQ

Q: How many treatments will I need?

A: To see maximum results a course of 8 treatments is recommended, per body area. These treatments should be taken twice per week at regular intervals.


Q: Which areas of the body can be treated?

A: The i-lipo course can be performed on calfs, knees, thighs, buttocks, stomach, arms and chin. The i-lipo is a multi-pad system that makes treatment fast and efficient. Typical treatment times are 10-15 minutes.


Q: What inch loss could I achieve from this treatment?

A: This will vary from person to person depending on your size, but the results from the treatment will be greatly improved by your commitment to the treatment. A healthy diet needs to be adhered to and an exercise program is important to follow to enable the released fat to be used up as energy. This should be done the same day as your i-lipo treatment.


Q: Does it hurt?

A: The i-lipo is a low level laser also sometimes known as a cold laser because most people feel very little when it is used on them. i-lipo is a comfortable relaxing treatment where the typical sensation felt is just a slight warmth where the pads are in contact with your skin. The process is extremely relaxing. The most you’ll feel is a slightly warm sensation in the treatment area. In fact, you could bring a book or your iPod and completely chill out.


Q: Is it suitable for men and women?

A: The i-lipo treatment works equally well for both.


Q: Can everyone have the treatment?

A: As with most treatments in your clinic, there are a few medical conditions that would stop us from performing the treatment. Your i-lipo therapist will go through a full health and medical questionnaire with you before your first treatment to ensure you are suitable. This will also include a detailed description of the treatment and time for any questions you may have.


Q: How long will the results last?

A: Booster treatments are not necessarily needed with the i-lipo, as long as your weight, diet and exercise is maintained. One treatment performed now and again is a good incentive to keep you in control.


Q: How safe is Laser Lipo?

A: It is completely safe, Laser Lipo low level laser technology has been studied and used for over 30 years for many biomedical purposes including wound healing, pain relief and inflammation. Don’t forget either that this is not lipo ‘suction’ or ’Smart lipo’, and therefore has none of the associated risks and problems involved.

Q: Which areas of the body can be treated?Virtually anywhere there is excess fat such as

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Bottoms
  • Thighs
  • Tummy
  • Hips
  • Waist
  • Back
  • Double chin(s)
  • Male breasts (but not female)

Q: Where does the fat go?

A: Laser Lipo treatments result in the liquefaction of fats. The liquefied fat is then drained away by the lymphatic system which is responsible for removing wastes from the body. From here, they’re delivered to the skeletal muscles where – through exercise – they’re burned to CO2 and ultimately eliminated from the body as we breathe out.


Q: What happens to the Glycerol that is released with the fat?

Glycerol is sent to the liver for gluconeogensis, a fancy word for ‘sugar making’.

Q: What happens after each treatment?

A: One can resume normal activities immediately as Laser Lipo is completely non-invasive with no down-time whatsoever. However, some form of exercise is necessary to burn of the drained fat (fuel) as energy.

 


Q: Can anyone have laser lipo?

A: Laser Lipo has no known side effects, however, there are a series of contraindications that prospective clients should be made aware of prior to starting a Laser treatment program. Here at Contours we ask you to complete a medical questionnaire just to be on the safe side.

 


Q: What results can one expect from the Laser Lipo treatment?

A: Measurable loss should always be noticed after the first treatment alone because Laser Lipo works instantly. Both male and female clients have found that those hard to reduce trouble spots can be treated quite significantly within just a few treatments. Although results can vary depending on the size of the individual, the area to be treated etc.


Q: How many treatments are needed?

A: This all depends on certain factors such as the area to be treated, your size, what you want to achieve. The standard iLipo treatment protocol is one 10 minute (8 paddle) treatment, twice a week, for 4 weeks. You can of course have more or less, and as the paying customer the choice is yours. Later if required, you can have the odd maintenance treatment if you’ve let things slip a bit. This is a cost effective means of keeping all your hard work and investment in check, should the need arise.


Q: What is Lipolysis?

A: Lipolysis is the process of targeting stored fats in fat cells. It releases the bio-available fuels (free fatty acid and glycerol) so they can be used by the body as energy.


Q: How does Laser Lipo Compare to Natural Weight Loss?

A: The science behind it lies in its ability to stimulate the release of Triglycerides from the targeted fat cells. The process of releasing water, free fatty acids, and glycerol, from the adipose cells, is not only natural, it is essential for the human body to function.

The human body is an energy machine; it intakes fuel (caloric intake), it converts the fuel into an energy source and stores it (as triglycerides in fat cells), and then releases it when the need arises (fat cells release stored triglycerides). The challenge in this incredible process is that sometimes the body stores more energy than it needs in its fat cells, resulting in an increase in an individual’s physical size. Thus, it is by targeting this excess energy storage, and by further stimulating the body to undergo its natural process of releasing it, the iLipo achieves its impressive results.

 


Q: What is the treatment process?

A: Please see our 4 Step Program


Q: Has i-lipo been around long?

A: Well firstly, please don’t confuse this with other procedures such as Lipo ‘suction’ or ‘Smart Lipo’. Both these are invasive medical procedures involving a Doctor or a surgeon. They also come with an extensive range of disadvantages and a hefty price tag. Laser Lipo or Lipolysis to give it its correct name, is a relatively new procedure that was introduced to the world market in 2007.

The technologyhas been he technology has been used for many years previously (since 1981) in the medical and physiotherapy industry, where it was found to have a surprisingly positive side effect on the reduction of fat in cells. It was then developed further, culminating in Chromogenex introducing the iLipo machine to the world market in 2007. Today’s machine is at the forefront of technology for spot fat reduction.
