Bellevue, WA: Dr. Fredric Stern, medical director at The Stern Center for Aesthetic Surgery in Bellevue, Washington recently co-authored a research paper on the Application of Low-Level Laser Therapy for Noninvasive Body Contouring.
Dr. Stern and the other researchers were looking to discover whether the slimming effects of low-level (Zerona®) laser liposculpture were due to simple fluid redistribution or fat reduction.
Six hundred eighty nine (689) patients received a total of six treatments over a two-week time period, after which waist, hips, thighs, arms, knees, neck and chest were measured. All study participants exhibited a significant reduction of the contours in the areas treated after the two week period of non-invasive Zerona® laser therapy.
The full Research Study as published in the March 2012 issue of the Journal Lasers in Surgery and Medicine is available for download on The Stern Center website.
The co-authors of this study include Dr. Robert F. Jackson, Dr. Rodrigo Neira, Dr. Clara L. Ortiz-Neira and Dr. Jillian Maloney.
