If you're an active person who exercises regularly and eats a healthy diet, the persistence of love handles, a muffin top, or other pockets of fat can be frustrating. If this sounds like you, you're not alone. The growing popularity of laser fat reduction at our practice in Houston, Pearland, and Webster, TX indicates that frustration is very common. Fortunately, we have a solution. i-Lipo is a non-invasive treatment that doesn't require downtime and is clinically shown to reduce fat and cellulite when combined with exercise.

Men and women who are concerned about stubborn fat bulges that don't respond to exercise and diet are excellent candidates for the laser fat reduction treatment with i-Lipo. You should be at or near the weight you expect to maintain and be in good overall health.
We use the i-LipoXcell system. This advanced procedure can target fat in the following areas:
i-Lipo is an innovative procedure that offers patients an alternative to liposuction. First, we use the system's laser to analyze and measure the body fat in the area you want to target. Next, we deliver infrared laser energy to your fat cells. The energy stimulates the cells and prompts them open pores that release the fat out of the cells. Then, we use radiofrequency energy to help tighten your skin and minimize the appearance of cellulite. Over the following days, your body naturally eliminates the released fat, and your cells shrink, helping you lose inches and achieve better contours.
Benefits of the treatment include:
The i-Lipo laser fat reduction treatment combines 4 technologies to promote tighter skin, minimize cellulite, and reduce pockets of stubborn fat.
Patients are relaxed and comfortable throughout each treatment, which typically take about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area. You'll decide on the number of treatments that is right for you during your consultation, but it is usually recommended that patients undergo 8 treatments performed twice weekly over 4 weeks to see the best results. Only 1 area is treated per day in order to maximize the burning of fat.
Our fully trained medical aesthetician begins the procedure by gently attaching the device to the treatment area. Some patients report feeling a warm sensation where pads contact the skin.
Exercising after your treatments can help you achieve your cosmetic goals and maintain your results. When combined with regular exercise and a nutritious diet, i-Lipo treatments deliver long-lasting, impressive results.
Because the procedure is non-invasive, there is no downtime following the treatment. You can return immediately to your normal daily activities. In some cases, we may recommend a short period of exercise after undergoing the procedure to enhance the fat metabolism process triggered by i-Lipo.
