Laser therapy is used to treat…
• Pain reduction
• Improved healing time
• Decreased swelling
• Increased circulation
Cold laser therapy is effective at reducing pain and facilitating healing and weight loss so that you can feel and look better and lead an active lifestyle. The lasers work by emitting certain wavelengths of light that penetrate deep into the skin with very few side effects.
Laser therapy can offer pain relief for back and neck pain, muscle pulls, arthritis, extremity pain, fibromyalgia and joint pain. The light emitted from the laser painlessly penetrates the skin and facilitates healing on a cellular level.
It works because each cell has a section that is sensitive to various wavelengths of light. The light sensitive areas of the cells convert the light into energy so that it can be used to heal the damaged tissues, which can result in a dramatic decrease in pain.
While individual results may vary, patients who undergo cold laser treatments for injuries can notice a dramatic reduction in pain and swelling along with improved circulation to the injured area and reduced healing times. This can allow our patients to get back to leading an active and product life much sooner than with traditional therapies alone.
Low level laser therapy can also be used for successful body contouring to help some individuals lose weight and inches, and its effectiveness has been proven via research studies. In a 2011 study, 40 individuals received either laser therapy or a placebo therapy, and the results were measured. After eight, 30 minute treatments, the participants lost almost an inch in their waist circumference and appeared visibly thinner. Participants were asked not to change their diets or exercise routines for the study, so the results were purely based off the laser weight loss treatments.
Laser weight loss therapy effectively drains fat cells of their fat. It can be used to reduce fat in the abdomen and thighs, and there are no side effects. Some individuals also report a decrease in hunger and a motivation to embark on a healthy diet and exercise regimen, and the more treatment sessions an individual undergoes, the more dramatic the results. On average, individuals lose between .12 and .13 inches per session.
It is important to note that the treatments do not kill or remove fat cells, as with liposuction. Instead, the lasers “punch holes” in the fat cells, which causes them to deflate. This shrinks the cells and results in lost inches and weight, and because no fat cells are removed, if weight is regained, it will not appear in new areas of the body.
This procedure works best in individuals who are motivated to lose weight and have already embarked upon a weight loss journey, but are not seeing the results they desire or are having trouble with certain spots, including the lower abdomen and upper thighs.
