Cold laser therapy employs the use of light waves to help destroy non-essential fat cells, basically eliminating fat from the cells in such a way that it doesn't return. Laser procedures are normally performed in the doctor's office and each session lasts less than 30 minutes. The benefits of cold laser therapy are becoming well known. For many people, noticeable improvement can be seen in just a few hours, with some procedures causing a size reduction of just short of an inch after a procedure.
The technique is minimally invasive. The light waves do the work and they are designed to travel through tissues without causing damage to the surrounding tissues. This results in a reduced risk of infection, no scarring and a much shorter recovery time. Procedures like liposuction can require taking a few days off of work or resting for several days after the procedure. Many procedures can result in discomfort that lasts for several days. Cold laser therapy allows the patient to go home and return to their daily activities in a much shorter period of time. It offers no pain and discomfort. It also leaves no bruising or redness.
Firmer Skin and Tissue
Cold laser therapy removes the fat and may actually create an environment that helps to strengthen the tissues in the surrounding area. When certain types of lasers are used, the stimulation of collagen that results may actually help to firm and tone muscle tissue as well as the skin. This reduces the dimpling of the skin, making it smoother and younger looking. Cold laser therapy, when used in conjunction with other fat removal techniques, exercise, and a nutritious diet, will help you fine tune your figure, giving you a new lease on life and giving you an opportunity to feel good about the way you look.
Targets Hard to Reach Areas
You can exercise for hours every day and try fat loss techniques that are tried and true, but there will always be areas of the body where the weight will just not want to leave. These are the areas that normally do not benefit from exercise and tend to be the harder to reach areas where it can be difficult to perform a cosmetic procedure. Cold laser therapy can be used to target these areas, removing the fat pockets and streamlining the body so that it has an all around youthful appearance.
Less Down Time
Many people put off having certain procedures performed because they can't miss work or they are worried about the side effects and the risk of infection. With cold laser therapy all of these things are a thing of the past. Healing time is relatively short and most people can return to their normal, daily activities immediatley. Cold laser therapy offers no side effects and no risk of infection. It also requires no preparation on your part.
Cold laser therapy is a technological advancement that allows doctors to target hard to reach, stubborn areas of body fat. If you are close to reaching your ideal weight and still have problem areas that nothing seems to take care of, talk to your doctor about cold laser therapy and find out if it is right for you. The benefits are many and the risks are relatively few. Every person will react differently to the procedure, but the results are often similar and are easily noticed after just one or two sessions.
