Our Laser Technology

Visible and Infrared light, at wavelengths from 650nm  to 940nm penetrates tissue to a depth of about 10 to 40 mm. Light at this wavelength is very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as cellulite, stretch marks, scars, skin elasticity, collagen production, wrinkles, acne and is particularly effective in removing fat from unwanted problem areas.

The diverse tissue and cell types in the body all have their own unique light absorption characteristics; that is, they will only absorb light at specific wavelengths and not at others. For example, skin layers, because of their high blood and water content, absorb red light very readily, while calcium and phosphorus absorb light of a different wavelength.

Super luminous LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are safe concentrated light sources used to produce the specific wavelengths of light that provide therapeutic benefits of light therapy without adverse side effects.

Therapeutic Effects

  • Increases blood capillary circulation and vascular activity by promoting improvement in the metabolism of nitric oxide (NO). This facilitates improved regulation of vasodilatation and leads to the formation of new capillaries - This in turn provides additional oxygen and nutrients to accelerate natural tissue healing processes and eventually evokes a cascade of beneficial biochemical processes.
  • Stimulates synthesis of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP)—an immediate energy source for muscle contraction and essential in the metabolism of all cellular processes and sustaining living systems.
  • Relaxes muscles, reduces nerve excitability and stimulates nerve transmission
  • Reduces scar tissue and stimulates wound healing
  • Increases lymphatic system activity and relieves edema and discomfort associated with swelling
  • Stimulates production of collagen—the most important component of wound healing
  • Increases RNA/DNA synthesis - this stimulates cellular reproduction and facilitates accelerated replacement of damaged cells
  • Increases production of endorphins and enkephelins from the brain - promoting mood elevation
  • Stimulates production of adrenals— which facilitate long term resilience to stress
  • Reduces inflammation and swelling in chronic conditions of arthritis, bursitis, and tendonitis
  • Stimulates fibroblastic activity - promoting repair of connective tissue and formation of collagen fibers

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to exercise during my program?

Light exercise like yoga and pilates are encouraged during your program, but not required.

What results can I expect?

During the first two weeks of their program our doctor’s lost an average of 7lbs/week! This is a typical result, as long as you do what we ask and stick to your program.

Will I be hungry during my program?

As you detox it is not uncommon to experience sugar cravings, however those are temporary and will pass. The vitamin injections you will receive help to minimize your detox symptoms and maintain your energy.

Are the injections required?

No. All services are optional. Your program will be customized based on your goals and what you’re comfortable with.

Does insurance cover weight loss?

In general, weight loss is not covered by insurance. Your initial exam, if needed, may be covered by your insurance co-pay. That will be determined at your consultation.

Are laser (LLLT) treatments safe?

Low light laser energy is part of the range of electromagnetic rays that are absolutely necessary for metabolism and growth of human beings and is also part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight minus the skin damaging UV rays, which is why NASA currently uses this type of energy in space.  It is also vibration energy, with which the human body resonates. This is the reason that it can penetrate through the skin.

I don’t know much about your laser, can you explain it to me?

Sunlight is a combination of visible, UV and infrared light.  Red laser light is longer in wavelength than visible light and starts just after the visible color of red.  Red laser light is the safest and healthiest spectrum of sunlight. Red laser light from the sun accounts for 70% of the heating of the Earth, the rest being caused by visible light.  It is therefore understood that a good combination of visible light and red laser light offer the most benefits in electromagnetic heating of objects that absorb infrared such as the human body. Other forms of heat such as fire and ceramic heaters, etc, warm a person by heating the surrounding air that touches the person which does not penetrate deeply into the body.  Red laser light heat penetrates the skin and is much more effective. Certain red laser light wavelengths also interact with living cells increasing metabolism, energy production, and causing more fuel (calories) to be burned.

What are the benefits of (LLLT)?

LLLT produces red and infrared (650nm – 940nm).  The human cells have light sensitive chemicals called chromophores which react to light in the 600nm – 900nm range. When stimulated by energy in this range, the cells produce more ATP which is the energy source that powers every muscle and increases metabolism.  Red laser light also causes DNA synthesis in the fibroblasts of the cells which makes the skin more elastic and younger looking.  In addition, near-infrared light promotes cellular healing, thus reducing the recovery time after a workout.  LLLT is used without exercise while relaxing and is very effective. Laser sessions also help to accelerate the body’s natural detoxification processes.  

How long has this technology been around?

Laser light therapy has been used in Europe and Asia since 1999.  It is only now catching on in North America.  

How many laser treatments do I need?

Treatments will vary depending on several factors including, skin tone, elasticity and cellulite grading. Multiple treatments are necessary two times per week for optimal results. Treatment times can range between twenty to forty minutes per session. Treatment sessions will vary from client to client. During your private consultation, our team can give you a better idea of how many treatments you will need to achieve your desired results.

Is there any pain or downtime after treatments?

No. Treatments are non-surgical, non-evasive and pleasant. Clients will listen to music, facebook, text or take a nap during treatments. Our professional staff is here to ensure each session is relaxing and comfortable for you.

What areas of the body can be treated with the laser?

Any area of the body that is non-responsive to diet and exercise can be reduced and contoured effectively. The most common areas are the waist, back, arms, legs, hips, thighs, buttocks, chin and neck.
