Laser Therapy Q & A

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy harnesses the power of cold laser light to rejuvenate tissues and melt away unwanted fat. The experts at Lifestyle Rejuvenation Medical Group use Erchonia lasers, including Zerona-Z6 for nonsurgical body contouring and the FX635, which is the first and only laser to be cleared by the FDA for treating nociceptive musculoskeletal pain.

How does laser therapy help me heal?

The drug-free, nonsurgical Erchonia cold laser resolves chronic pain by reducing inflammation and increasing circulation to torn, fatigued, or stretched soft tissues. The laser energy targets your cells without heating the surface of your skin, so you stay comfortable during your 20-minute treatment for:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Other musculoskeletal pain

By healing the source of your pain, you avoid the need for potentially addictive opioids and possibly damaging surgery. After a few cold laser treatments, you should be pain-free and ready to get back to your favored sport or other activities.

How does laser therapy sculpt away excess fat?

The Zerona-Z6 cold laser targets its energy to the adipose (fatty) layer of your tissue. The laser emulsifies the fat and empties the fat cells so that they shrink. Your body processes the emulsified fat through your lymph system, which excretes debris and toxins. 

The entire process takes weeks to months, though you may notice a difference in the circumference of the treatment area in as little as two weeks. The emulsified fat leaves your body permanently through urination and other excretion pathways.

How much fat can I lose with laser therapy?

In a double-blind, randomized trial, patients lost an average of 3.72 inches of fat with Zerona. Patients in the control group only lost 0.5 inches. Use Zerona to remove fat from your:

  • Hips
  • Waist
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Chest (gynecomastia)
  • Back and bra fat
  • Knees
  • Ankles

Your expert can treat multiple areas at a time. Each fat-removal session takes about 20 minutes. You return to normal activities directly afterward.

Does the fat grow back after laser therapy?

If you eat more than is right for your body after your body-contouring treatment, your fat cells may swell again. Lifestyle Rejuvenation Medical Group also offers nutrition and fitness coaching to help you keep your well-earned shape.
