This treatment is the application of a 635nm low intensity laser, which has been shown through extensive research to cause the fat within the adipocyte (fat cell) to leave the cell and accumulate in the interstitial space around the cells.
In contrast to high power, high heat lasers that are used in various medical procedures, the low-level laser used for this treatment has no thermal effect on tissue. Instead, the non-invasive laser helps the body absorb fat by stimulating its biological function. Excess fat is then removed naturally by the body’s lymphatic system and subsequently excreted without the negative side affects and down time associated with more invasive procedures such as liposuction.
