With I-Lipo, our San Diego clients can get the results of liposuction surgery – but without the pain, needles or downtime.

I-Lipo is a revolutionary, non-invasive fat reduction procedure that has the power to:

  • Reduce unwanted fat
  • Smooth the appearance of cellulite
  • Reshape the body

In other words, I-Lipo offers the comprehensive approach our patients need to shape their ideal bodies. It’s designed to target specific problem areas throughout the body, and is commonly used to reshape the upper arms, chin, abdomen and thighs.

How does it work?

I-Lipo emits ultra-low levels of laser energy, which penetrates the skin and is absorbed by your fat cells. This process opens up pores in the walls of your fat cells, allowing the content to break down and clear away. While the inner components are naturally metabolized by the body, the fat cells shrink and collapse.

The procedure is so effective because it harnesses a natural process within the body. It doesn’t damage any surrounding structures and your skin, blood vessels and nerves all remain unharmed throughout the treatment.

I-LIPO vs. Liposuction

When compared to traditional liposuction and other non-surgical fat-reduction techniques, I-Lipo in San Diego is a cut above the rest. Here’s a closer look at what sets this approach apart from the competition:

  • Smooth, reduce and reshape

I-Lipo has the power to reduce fat, improve cellulite and contour the body. This powerful, three-pronged approach results in a dramatic improvement in your appearance.

  • Targeted treatment

The design of the I-Lipo device results in highly targeted fat reduction and cellulite smoothing benefits. As such, the treatment is more effective.

  • Sustainable results

I-Lipo harnesses fractional fat reduction methods, which leads to body contouring results that our La Jolla clients are able to sustain long-term.


I-Lipo has been extensively studied and the procedure has been found to produce comparable results to liposuction surgery.

In fact, just one treatment is associated with a 30 percent reduction in the fat layer depth, with a larger reduction achieved with each additional session.


I-Lipo will be done in the privacy of one of our treatment rooms, while you lie comfortably on the table. During the procedure, laser pads will be placed on each treatment area for ten minutes. You may feel a gentle warming sensation as the laser releases unwanted fat. After each session, you will need to engage in light exercise to accelerate the removal of released fat from the area.

The entire treatment experience will take between 45 and 60 minutes, depending on the size of the targeted area. Multiple I-Lipo sessions will be necessary to achieve your ideal results. In general, we recommend a course of eight treatments over a four-week period to most of our La Jolla clients.

Treatment Options

I-Lipo offers a range of devices for fat reduction, cellulite smoothing and body shaping, depending on your goals. Here’s a quick look at your options:

  • I-Lipo

I-Lipo is the traditional version of this procedure, which uses low levels of laser energy to break down and release the contents of unwanted fat cells.

  • I-Lipo ultra

In addition to clearing away the contents of excess fat cells, I-Lipo Ultra uses a suction hand-piece to smooth cellulite and reshape the body.

  • I-Lipo Xcell

I-Lipo Xcell incorporates four powerful technologies for smart body fat analysis and measurement, fat reduction, IR vacuum massage and skin tightening.


Your I-Lipo results can endure for a very long time if you continue to eat well and exercise often following your appointment. Results may be seen immediately and will continue to improve as you complete more treatments.
