Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Essentially, this technology theoretically works by using a 635 nm laser to create a hole in the fat cell, ultimately causing it to deflate. Then, the lipids or fat is carried away by the body’s natural systemic flow and excreted. Common machines with this technology are known as i-Lipo or Zerona.
Does it work?
Typically, studies have shown that LLLT can work with other therapies such as liposuction. However, when used alone, its efficacy data is very limited. While a few studies have shown some inch reduction, others have shown no results thereby giving quite a mixed picture.
What are the side-effects?
There are minimal to no side-effects with this procedure.
