Based in Annapolis, Maryland, our medical director is Steven J. Saltzman M.D., a Johns Hopkins University trained physician and board certified Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine specialist. In addition to the many clinical studies that document the dramatic results obtained with the i-Lipo laser, there are additional benefits to our full integrative and natural medical program.
We have much to offer our patients:
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.
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 consutation prior to treatment to confirm suitability.
i-Lipo laser treatment 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.
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.
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.
Treatments are structured into courses of eight. Your number of treatments, however, is 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.
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.
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.
