The i-lipo emits low levels of laser energy, the fat cell membranes are disrupted releasing intra-cellular fat. This causes the cell to lose its round shape by changing the permeability of the cell membrane. This does not affect the neighbouring structures such as skin, blood vessels, and peripheral nerves. Triglycerides spill out from the broken cell membranes and are released into the interstitial space, where they are slowly transported through the body’s natural metabolic functions, with no adverse physiological effects and are used by the body as an energy source. This mechanism of action is not “liquefaction of fat” rather, it is the instant breakdown of the fat cells (also referred to as lypolysis).
Fat cells (Adipocytes) at rest
Laser energy penetrates and stimulates the fat cells
Water, Glycerol and Free Fatty acids (together known as Triglycerides) are gently released into the Interstitial space
Cell membranes become porous,
releasing their contents
More Water (blue), Free Fatty Acids (green) and Glycerol (purple) leak out. They are now transported through the Lymphatic system
Drained fat cells at rest. The waste is now on its way to be used as energy and burnt off with exercise
The laser beams have an active penetration of 9mm but continue up to 13mm with little or no effect.
