Are there scientific studies to prove this works?
In the case of the market leading Laser Lipo technology (Chromogenex- i-lipo) we use, the answer is yes. Chromogenex received FDA ( US Drug and Food Administration) clearance to market the i-Lipo low-level laser diode device for circumferential reduction in the USA. Based on results from a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study of 34 volunteers, the FDA found that over 70% of participants experienced significant inch loss, thus validating the use of i-Lipo to target specifically chosen anatomical areas for fat reduction. The results represented more than double the percentage difference for meeting significant results as defined by the FDA.
Do I need to make lifestyle changes?
We really recommend you exercise after each session to maximise the impact. Ongoing it makes sense to eat well and exercise regularly to maintain the results and its going to keep you in the best longterm health. We have partnered with gyms, personal fitness instructors and dieticians in the area so we can help to set up a complete lifestyle change for you.
How many treatments will I need?
To see maximum results a course of 6-8 treatments is recommended, per body area. These treatments should be taken 2-3 times per week at regular intervals.
Which areas of the body can be treated?
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 30-45 minutes.
What inch loss could I achieve from this treatment?
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 and an exercise program is important to follow, to enable the released fat to be used up as energy. This should be done within 24 hours after your i-lipo treatment.
Does it hurt?
No. 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.
Is it suitable for men and women?
Yes. The i-lipo treatment works equally well for both.
Can everyone have the treatment?
As with most treatments in your clinic, there are a few medical conditions that would stop us from performing the treatment.
We 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.

How long will the results last?
Booster treatments are not necessarily needed with the i-lipo, as long as your weight, diet and exercise is maintained. However one treatment performed now and again is a good incentive to keep you in control.
