PILOT STUDY FINDS LOW-LEVEL LASER IRRADIATION SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCES CHOLESTEROL AND TRIGLYCERIDE SERUM LEVELS
Wausau, Wisconsin – April 1, 2009. Recent studies demonstrating that laser irradiation has the ability to alter the function of certain transcription (i.e., communication) factors involved in the expression of specific genes prompted researchers to evaluate the efficacy of laser therapy in the reduction of cholesterol and triglyceride serum levels, according to ground breaking scientific data presented at the 29th Annual Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) in National Harbor, Maryland.
Lead researcher Ryan Maloney, Medical Director of Erchonia Medical Inc., McKinney, Texas, explained that his clinical study was originally designed to investigate how dissolved fat affects body chemistry. However, while monitoring lipid and cholesterol levels, the research team discovered a trend indicating that laser use could disrupt cholesterol formation.
Where does the Fat go
Is it safe?
Yes, there is no risk involved in using the Zerona® low-level laser therapy and it is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as tumescent liposuction and lipodissolve and other non-invasive devices like the Accent, VelaShape, and Thermage ,which rely on heating the tissue and can cause discomfort. None of these have the proven data showing how fat cell size is reduced like the Zerona®. The Zerona® treatment is 100% non-invasive and causes no bruising, scaring and zero downtime. During the treatment you will feel no discomfort, no anesthesia will be used and you can assume normal activities immediately following each treatment.
Are there any side affects?
No. The treatment process is completely non-invasive and there are absolutely no side effects beyond loss of inches and fat.
