We know that lasers are a valuable tool to reduce inflammation, pain and stimulate tissue healing. Yet, there is a lot of confusing information about the therapeutic effect of extremely lasers in the range of 5 to 30 milliwatts for fat reduction.
This clinical trial described and evaluated the effectiveness of the Erchonia “Zerona” Laser System for fat reduction and body contouring. Circumference measurements revealed no statistically significant reduction in fat. Ultrasound measurements also did not reveal a statistically significant reduction in fat layer thickness.
Research does document the effectiveness of high powered, hot lasers to dissolve fat which can then absorbed by the body. Cool lasers have been proven to make tissue look better but we believe that is due to its effect of stimulating collagen production. I am sorry to say that there is no proof at the present time that cool lasers can get rid of those love handles!
