The bottom line!

The bottom line!

Body Renewal is excited to offer the next step in multi-modality therapy in treating body problems. We call it the Bottom Line! Any treatment modality on its own can make a big difference, but in our eyes it's not sufficient. Ageing bodies have different forms and grades of resistant fat and cellulite and thus success needs a combination of treatments that include reduction of fat cells, collagen stimulation and increased circulation At Body Renewal, i-lipo is commonly performed with other body shaping treatments for best results especially for resistant fat and cellulite. This combination is one of the most widely used and most effective methods of achieving a significant aesthetic improvement within 2 to 6 months when the effects of collagen stimulation, improved circulation and remodeling become evident.

For cellulite and body sculpturing, i-lipo Ultra uses non- invasive laser lipolysis technology with suction and Lipomassage. It can be safely combined with Carboxytherapy, Radiofrequency, Lipodissolve and Mesotherapy. For patients with Stretch marks, Carboxytherapy therapy into the stretch marks stimulates collagen production which then remodels and shrinks the stretch mark to improve the appearance.

At Body Renewal, with a combination of treatments, in 1 to 2 months we can take a good body and turn it into a Perfect body: slim, firm, smooth and sculpted

The i-lipo is a low level laser (LLLT) system, also often referred to as a cold laser. This low dose of light targets the adipose (fat) cells in the treatment area, creating a cascade of chemical reactions inside the cells that open transitory pores in the cell membrane and convert the contained triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol. These molecules can then easily pass through the pores in the cell wall to be taken up and transported by the body's lymphatic system for metabolism into energy during the subsequent recommended post treatment exercise. i-lipo Ultra low laser level technology (LLLT) offers patients a safe and effective non- invasive laser lipolysis option with no downtime.

Given the choice, most people would rather choose a non- invasive procedure like i-lipo Ultra to improve their unwanted fat than choose invasive procedures like traditional liposuction and invasive laser lipolysis, which are invasive procedures with post operative side effects and downtime. Liposuction is the most commonly used technique for fat reduction; however, it is associated with severe risks such as embolism, nerve compression, skin necrosis, problems with anaesthesia, infection and seroma.

Furthermore the success of liposuction and laser lipolysis is highly dependent on the skills and experience of the surgeon, therefore results can vary considerably. Hence, there is need for safer, non-invasive technologies such as Accent to achieve fat reduction and improve the facial silhouette.

The i-lipo Ultra vacuum massage combined with LLLT encourages a localized improvement of blood circulation to stimulate and restore healthy cell activity. Physical manipulation of tissue layers promotes increased circulation, to bring oxygen and nutrients to the cells and lymphatic drainage to remove excess toxins and excess fluid that might damage the cells. Temperature increases and the use of specific laser wavelengths initiate fibroblast activity to create brand new connective tissues fibres increasing tissue flexibility. The i-lipo uses LLLT which works to empty the fat contents of the target treatment area. These cells remain undamaged and can therefore be re-filled in the future if your calorie intake should exceed calorie use.

The vacuum massage handpiece captures tissue drawing it into the aperture and positioning it for optimal laser penetration. Vacuum and massage encourages optimal circulatory and lymphatic flow. Prior to each treatment, the area will be measured. Post treatment measurements will be done to show your centimetre loss. You will see results after one treatment but for long term results, a series of 8 treatments is advised, performed twice a week for a 4 week duration.

At Body Renewal we make available to you an exercise bike for 30 minute cardio session directly after your Body Shaping treatment. This is required to reach optimal treatment benefits and to maintain result.

Although single treatments of i-lipo Ultra will produce immediate results and centimetre loss a course of combination treatment sessions is advised to produce maximum benefit. For most patients a course of eight sessions is advised, performed twice per week for a four week duration. It is advised that only a single anatomical treatment zone is treated at any one time. Additional treatments or anatomical locations can be treated after the first course of sessions has been completed. Single maintenance treatments in the future can be scheduled as per your specific needs.

LLLT low level laser therapy such as i-lipo has been proven to restore a lean state adipocytes without inducing cell apoptosis. It is hypothesized that LLLT could serve as an adjunct to other dietary therapies to promote insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk of diabetes. The i lipo LLLT based on histological evidence, has proven to reduce adipose tissue fat mass of the waist, hips, and thighs while preventing fat cell death. The formation of the transitory pore within the adipocyte membrane results in adipocyte cell collapse and its return to a lean state. Reduced fat mass is associated with the synthesis of beneficial hormones like adiponectin which promotes insulin sensitivity within numerous tissues. On-going clinical trials are evaluating LLLT for potential acute and long-term medical benefits.

An article published in the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery in 2010 demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in both serum triglyceride and total cholesterol levels following a standard two-week, six treatment LLLT administration. Presently, clinical studies are on-going to elucidate the potential utility of this application.

Studies have demonstrated the physiological importance of adipocytes. Lipoatrophy, a condition in which the total number of adipocytes are reduced, reveals an association with insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, and liver steatosis.[26] Therefore, preserving cell viability while restoring a lean state is an important strategy as adipocytes exert a protective action by releasing beneficial endocrine hormones.
