i.Lipo by Marie France Philippines

Once upon a time, we were also fit, thin and sexy. Our families and friends know my husband and I are advocates of healthy and active lifestyle – regular exercises, healthy eating, organic and eco-friendly stuff. But age really does funny things to our body! Extra inches here and there, bulges, painful joints, back aches and so much more. It used to be easy for us to lose weight and get back in ­shape. Sigh…

(Throwback 2010)

After I gave birth to our first child, I found it hard to loose the mummy tummy. It is also partly because I have undergone emergency CS and the wounds took a long time to heal. Even after a year, it was hard. I used to do some minimal functional exercises at home and would loose the tummy in no time. But after giving birth, it was hard. When we found out we are pregnant again with baby no. 2, the more I know it will be reallllllly hard.

Imagine my excitement when Janice Villanueva – the super mom behind Mommy Mundo invited me to Marie France’s launch for i.Lipo.

“It is the latest breakthrough in laser lipolysis, offering fat elimination and body contouring via low-level laser energy. It is US FDA-approved treatment that targets and breaks down fat cells in specific areas like the tummy, arms, and thighs.” There is hope!!!

I attended the press launch in Chef Jessie’s revolving restaurant in Eastwood. After a healthy lunch, more healthy treats and goodies awaited us in Marie France’s clinic.

I was very excited by this news. Since I am pregnant, I asked my ever-supportive husband to do my trial session to see if he will really loose an inch.

It is highly recommended for everyone to continue working-out since there is no downtime after treatment. Normal activities can be resumed right after the treatment. The therapist and the nutritionist also discussed proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle.

For my husband to achieve his goals, it is recommended to complete 12 sessions. It is important to note that during the whole treatment – working out, healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition and healthy eating habits are observed. The i.Lipo is there to help us reach our goals faster.

It is good to know that there are non-invasive, 100% safe and faster alternatives to loosing fats for our age group. As much as I want to go back to our old lifestyle of daily workouts, there are just things that mommies cannot do anymore due to numerous reasons. Sigh again…

How does i.Lipo work?

i.Lipo stimulates the body’s natural response to fat-burning by utilizing low levels of visible red laser light to target and eliminate low levels unwanted fat. With treatment pads placed on the problem area, i.Lipo emits laser energy to prompt fat cells to break down the stored triglycerides into fatty acids and glycerol. These are then transported to tissues for use when the body needs it energy reserves, thereby promoting metabolism. Once metabolized, these are eliminated through the body’s natural process.

Is it safe?

Very safe. i.Lipo is non-ablative and only focuses on target area. It does not affect nor damage surrounding skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves. Moreover, it can be performed on all skin types.

How long does a session take?

It varies depending on the size of the treatment area. But in general, it usually takes only 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Is there downtime?

There is no downtime. Normal activities (like chasing after this little one) can be resumed right after treatment.

So for mommies and daddies out there who are getting frustrated – there is hope for us!!!
