Collagen Growth

People are always looking for a way to reduce the fat on their body. What many don't realize is that fat reduction, particularly through conventional liposuction, can have some nasty after-effects. The foremost of which is damaged skin.

The best way to combat saggy, wrinkled skin stemming from a procedure is to avoid it all together. To accomplish this, your physician may reccomend Chromogenex' i-Lipo treatment. For more information, please call (408) 946-9453 or contact us online.

Collagen & Conventional Liposuction

Collagen is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that promotes elasticity. In essence, this substance gives skin its youthful and smoothappearance. As you age, your body stops producing collagen; this is why skin sags and wrinkles.

This is doubly true for how skin reacts to a conventional liposuction treatment. Because liposuction merely “sucks” fat out of your body, you're left with sagging skin, wrinkles and unsightly folds. Your body isn't producing enough new collagen, so the skin has no elasticity.

Collagen & i-Lipo

i-Lipo is unique: it provides the same body shaping and fat reduction of conventional liposuction, yet maintains healthy, supple skin. This is because i-Lipo promotes collagen growth.

This is done with low-level laser technology, also referred to as LLLT. For each i-Lipo session, several treatment pads are placed around the target area. These pads emit the i-Lipo laser, which targets and eliminates fat cells. The mild heat of the i-Lipo treatment actually stimulates your body's collagen production. By rejuvenating this natural process, you lose fat without making your skin droop or sag.

To put it another way: i-Lipo is like getting liposuction AND a “tummy tuck”, only non-surgically! i-Lipo is even making waves in the media. Take a look at this recent episode of “The Doctors”, featuring the impressive i-Lipo process:
