Primary biochemical mechanism of low-level-laser therapy for the non-invasive reduction of subcutaneous adipose tissue.


Several published studies have revealed a unique biological effect in adipocytes following low-level laser stimulation. Dr. Rodrigo Neira and coworkers (2000) were able to demonstrate that low-level laser light at 635nm emulsified isolated adipose panicles.1,2 Scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM and TEM) revealed the collapse of fat-filled adipocytes in panicle arrangements following 6 minutes of laser irradiation (Figure 1). 1, 2

Dr. Niera identified the formation of an aperture or transitory pore within the membrane of adipocytes following LLLT, and showed the… Continue reading

Local  fat  reduction  for  cosmetic  purposes  utilizes  two  different mechanisms. One  is  an  ablative mechanism  in which the fat cells are destroyed, exemplified by the combination of phosphatidylcholine (PC) and deoxycholate (DC). PC with DC is felt to cause local fat reduction secondary to the detergent action of DC, and it… Continue reading


Lipo Laser MachineA New Non-Invasive Approach for Body Contouring: the Applications of the Low-Level Laser Therapy, by David Turok, MD

American Academy of Anti-Aging Medical News – Winter 2009


Study Design

Placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized, multi-site clinical study was conducted to assess the efficacy of LLLT as an independent modality for noninvasive body sliming. The study enrolled  sixty-seven subjects between the ages of 18 to 65 years who satisfied the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Patients were asked to sign an affidavit  stating that no modifications in their daily dietary or exercise habits will be made throughout the… Continue reading

Venus Freeze at HWC PewaukeePatient demand for non-surgical, non-invasive, and no-downtime wrinkle treatment procedures has grown dramatically over the past decade as new treatments and technologies have been introduced.

The effects of dermal heating are well recognized to include immediate effects on collagen structure with stimulation of neocollagenesis (1).

These changes can help reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles. Radiofrequency (RF) energy is used in medicine for a few decades. Radiofrequency (RF) energy heats tissue through the induction of rotational movement in water molecules. These… Continue reading
