FDA Approves New Body-Contouring Laser Treatment i-Lipo Ultra

The FDA has approved a painless, non-invasive laser treatment called i-Lipo Ultra, manufactured by Zone Life, for the reduction of the appearance of cellulite and help slim specific body areas.

i-Lipo Ultra can be used in a variety of body areas that often support stubborn pockets of fat, such as the abdomen, thighs, stomach, buttocks, and chin.

During treatment with i-Lipo Ultra, low-level laser light is directed to targeted areas through four pads placed directly on the skin of the problem area for 10 to 20 minutes. The light is absorbed into individual adipose cells, temporarily opening cell wall pores to release fat. This fatty tissue is then processed by the body's natural lymphatic system, where it's broken down and released when the patient exercises. 

Because of this connection to physical activity, a 20- to 30-minute session of cardiovascular-related exercise is recommended after each treatment. 8 to 10 treatments over four weeks are recommended for the best results--less time than is needed for other non-invasive fat removal systems like Zerona.

With any cosmetic fat removal system, establishing a healthy weight, diet, and exercise program are vital to achieving good results. i-Lipo Ultra, as well as other non-invasive fat removal systems like CoolSculpting and Zerona, are designed to target areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise in otherwise healthy individuals.

If you think i-Lipo Ultra might be right for you, contact a provider in your area to learn more.
