What Is Tickle Lipo?
Tickle Lipo, also known as N.I.L. (Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture) originated in Europe. This innovative liposculpture technology sets itself apart from traditional liposuction in many ways. There is a safety feature in place to ensure non-fatty tissue is not damaged. No heat or ultrasound is used. Rather the infrasonic energy ensures healthy tissue remains for better skin retraction.
N.I.L. quickly became known as ‘Tickle Lipo” because of the tickling sensation patients experience during the procedure. Tickle Liposculpture technology produces a triple 3-D movement (rotation, reciprocation and vibration).
Removes Stubborn & Unwanted Fat
This new form of gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic surgery uses a low frequency infrasonic vibration that removes the most stubborn and unwanted fat. This state of the art machine liquefies and quickly removes your fat cells without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. Many of our patients are active Coloradans that frequently exercise, but due to genetics or other reasons, cannot tone down unwanted body parts such as love handles.
Faster Than Traditional Liposuction
The 3-D cannula motion also assists in the painless delivery of local anesthesia, decreased procedural discomfort, and shortened treatment times. The unique vibrating cannula creates a rotational vibration which speeds up the liposculpture procedure, thus making Tickle Lipo 25% faster than other traditional liposuction treatments.
Less Painful – Experience A Tickle Sensation
Are you wondering ‘How can this liposculpture procedure be performed with no systemic anesthesia?’ It’s due to the 10Hz frequency of the infrasonic vibration. This unique vibration disrupts the sensation of painful stimuli by activating the nerves that block the transmission of pain signals. While these non-nociceptive fibers refrain from sending pain signals to your brain, you will feel much more at ease and experience more of a tickle sensation.
The tickling sensation, that often causes giggling during the treatment, is known as “The Gate Control Theory”. The Gate Control Theory suggests that our spinal cords contain a neurological “gateway” that either blocks pain signals or allows them to pass on to the brain.
Pain signals triggered by small nerve fibers are allowed to pass through to the brain, while larger nerve fiber’s signals are blocked.
Greater Contouring & Smoother Results
Tickle Lipo doesn’t use heat or ultrasound, like traditional liposuction procedures (which sometimes causes uneven appearances after liposuction). Instead, Tickle Liposuction uses advanced infrasonic energy to break down fat cells. This new innovative technology immediately shuts off when non-fatty tissue is contacted, ensuring only fat destruction.
These added benefits of Tickle Lipo contribute to greater contouring abilities, smoother results, reduced swelling and less bruising.
Because traditional methods of liposuction use heat, they can cause harm to adjacent organs and non-fatty cells. While utilizing the innovative infrasonic energy to break down fat cells, this state of the art technology will immediately shut off if non-fatty tissue is contacted, ensuring only fat destruction. This safety feature ensures patients a relaxed and effective treatment.
