Chromogenex are delighted to receive FDA clearance to market the successful i-Lipo low level laser diode device for circumference reduction of the waist. The i-Lipo is the first direct skin contact laser device for fat reduction and body contouring to receive such approval for circumference reduction. Results from a recent double-blind, placebo controlled randomised study of 34 volunteers were scrutinised by the FDA; the measurement data and patient satisfaction evaluation of treatment outcome validating the use of the i-Lipo to specifically target chosen anatomical areas for fat reduction.
Of the 34 male and female participants recruited onto the study, 19 were randomised into the treatment group and 15 into the control group. The treatment group received 8 20-minute laser treatment sessions, scheduled over a 3-4 week period, each of which were followed by a period of post-treatment exercise. The control group undertook an identical scheduling and exercise program, but using a sham light diode device. Participants were unaware of their group allocations until after the end of the study.
The individual success criteria for the study participants was to achieve a minimum reduction of 4.0cm (1.5 inches) from the circumference measurement of the waist from baseline following the course of 8 i-Lipo treatments. 79% (15 of 19 participants) of the test group achieved and surpassed this reduction, while only 6.7% (1 participant out of 15) of the control group achieved the target. This 72% difference between the two groups is more than double the % difference defined by the FDA as demonstrating a significant result from treatment. Comparison of the test group and control group mean circumference reduction from baseline measurements to the end of the treatment phase demonstrated a mean difference of -3.8cm between the two groups. This result is extremely statistically significant and gives a confidence of >99.99% that a participant undertaking i-Lipo will achieve a greater circumference reduction than a participant undertaking exercise alone in a 3-4 week period.
This study supports previous study data completed in France and the UK and from the current i-Lipo devices already placed in over 1000 commercial clinics worldwide.

How does it work?
The i-Lipo emits low levels of laser energy, which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them though channels in the cell membranes. The fatty acids and glycerol are then transported around the body to the tissues that will use them during metabolism to create energy. This process of fatty acid release is a natural response of the body when the body needs to used stored energy reserves, thus i-Lipo is not creating any unnatural reaction in the body nor does it affect or damage any surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves. A period of exercise post treatment will ensure the complete metabolism and thus elimination from the body of the freed fatty acids.
The i-Lipo system has many advantages over other similar systems.
Here are just a few!
Independent clincal studies have shown i-Lipo to be, in some cases, comparable to results achieved by liposuction. Ultrasound imagery shows up to 30% reduction in the fat layer depth after just one treatment. Additional treatments improve results further. Results can be seen immediately after each treatment as the fat cell contents are released. Light exercise post treatment can accelerate the removal of the released fat .
Compared to surgical liposuction and other Ultrasound or laser techniques i-Lipo is much more affordable with similar results.
Safe and Painless
i-Lipo uses low levels of visible red laser light to create a safe and painless bio-stimulation effect in the targeted fat tissue. This stimulation is of the normal chemical pathways which the body uses to free up energy resources when required, so i-Lipo does not produce any abnormal effects in the body or damage body tissue such as cells, blood vessels or neighbouring nerves or vital organs. The treatment can be performed on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored and you can return to normal activity immediately after treatment.
Results can be seen immediately after treatment. Typically a 2-4cm loss in abdomen circumference can be achieved with every treatment. A course of 8 treatments is recommended over 4 weeks with 2 treatments per week.
Targeted fat reduction
i-Lipo can target fat reduction in specific problem area. By positioning the laser pads on the target area such as chin, upper arms, abdomen or thighs fat can be broken down and removed specifically from that area. This is a big advantage over diet and exercise which can reduce overall body fat but not shape individual areas.
The system has been designed with a four pad option totaling 36 individual treatment Lasers enabling operators to reduce treatment time.
“The i-lLpo is amazing! It’s an affordable, painless and effective procedure to offer your clients!”
Dr Chantelle Eybers
“i-Lipo is a technology that really works as a targeted fat reduction system. Each of my patients loose between 2cm – 4cm per session. It is a great asset in each business to motivate patients to reach their ideal body with optimum health and wellness. Having visible results in the first session is a fantastic way to motivate patients to stay fit and maintain a healthy eating plan not only during the 8 treatment sessions, but long after the completion of the treatment course.”
Dr. M.E.Voshol-Botha, South Africa
“My girlfriend and I regularly use the gym; however we have both struggled to lose fat around the stomach area. After reading reviews online we decided to try iLipo. The dietary advice greatly helped us with our goals. Towards the end of the treatment we could see a noticeable difference in our target areas. I lost 25cm and my girlfriend lost 12.5cm. We would recommend the nutritional packs during the course of the treatments.”
“I have always had a problem with fat thighs! I am of medium build and no matter how much exercise I do I could not reduce the size of my thighs. I had heard about iLipo but was very sceptical about it working! I had a consultation and decided to start the programme. I got amazing results straight away and after 3 weeks I lost 7lbs in weight, 18cm across my thighs and toned my overall body. I feel great and would recommend this programme without hesitation.”
K Brookes, Hertfordshire
“I was amazed that after one session I had lost 13cms, sounds an awful lot but in context, consistent over a period of time (4 weeks). I dropped a dress size! Absolutely fabulous!!!”
M Choy, London
“I would highly recommend this Ultra i-lipo to anyone interested in pursuing technology that delivers on its promise. In my opinion, there is no competition whatsoever when faced with the question, “Which fat reduction laser should I purchase”? In fact, we are currently exceeding over 20 cm of subcutaneous loss on average over eight (8) treatments. Our clients are ecstatic, so are we.”
Joseph D. Whitehead, Laser Clinic of Chesapeake
“Our customers are our biggest fans of the i-Lipo, anything you would refer to your family and friends speaks for itself.”
Kaitlyn Bradley, Sewickley Chiropractic Center, Sewickley, PA
” We have had a great success with the cold laser. Everybody loses inches and the best outcomes are with the patients who are on the low carb diets. We and our patients are very pleased and would recommend iLipo to every practice that has active weight loss program.”
Always sceptical with these sorts of things especially when on offer….
So like anyone else who sees a bargain, I snapped the i-lipo offer up as Summer was just around the corner. I was amazed that after one session I had lost 13cms, sounds an awful lot but in context, consistent over a period of time (4 weeks). I dropped a dress size!
What was even more beneficial was the personal training sessions that went with it. I thought I was relatively fit prior to coming here until I met Stephanie. She works out on a different level and I have to say that although it can be intense and sometimes downright difficult, it is actually enjoyable so much so that I purchased 10 more personal training sessions. Stephanie does push the boundaries and is able to utilise all of the equipment in the gym which is fantastic.In total I lost over 7lbs which was pretty amazing, I didn’t diet – just became more aware of what I was eating. The exercise definitely helped and that is down to Stephanie. She is utterly brilliant and I will endeavour to keep my sessions with her as they really do make a difference. Absolutely fabulous!!!M.C. London
“I have been in practice for 15 years and have owned 10 offices in 6 states, employing laser therapy in almost all of them. When the “laser fat reduction wave” began I was hesitant to purchase other units based on the fact that I understand the parameters that enable lasers to obtain biochemical effects. The other products were just not comparable, and did not work as well. I gained competitive advantage by getting better results with superior equipment. The i-lipo is that equipment.”
Dr Anthony J DiCesaro III
Our clients are losing an average of eight inches in four weeks.”
Rachel Schinosi, Owner – Cosmetic Solutions Canonsburg, PA
“We are very impressed with iLipo, ultrasound scans at our clinc show a 30% reduction in fat after just one treatment”
Mr Chris Griffin, Consultant Gynecologist, Midland Ultrasound and Medical Services
“My average patient loses about 6 inches in 8 treatments. The least was 1 inch and the most was 12 inches. We take three measurements on the abdomen, and combine the results. We had one patient that came to us for a consultation and decided to take the 6 Zerona treatments first and then the 8 i-Lipo treatments. When she came back, we could not see any so we gave her a 1st treatment and she lost over two inches from her tummy.
We are very happy with the i-Lipo, and will try to purchase another very soon.”
Dr. Burch, Florida
