Removing Cellulite

Cold laser can help you eliminate cellulite. The Dermatology Research and Practice Journal states, "removing cellulite with this type of laser therapy helps to sculpt the body." The laser sends light deep into the layers of the skin, penetrating cells and stimulating them to rejuvenate themselves. This rejuvenation leads to new cell growth, stronger tissues and a quicker healing response.

 

Joint Pain

Cold laser therapy can help to eliminate the pain that is associated with many different conditions that affect the joints such as knee, back, and neck injuries. It can also benefit conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome that is caused by repetitive movements. Joint pain and stiffness can have a dramatic effect on a person's quality of life, preventing them from participating in activities they once enjoyed.


Arthritis

Cold laser therapy can also help reduce the joint stiffness that often accompanies the different types of arthritis. The chronic pain of arthritis can remain constant or it can come and go with changes in the weather or a person's overall health. Laser therapy can stimulate new muscle growth that helps to reduce the stiffness and increase a person's range of motion which, in turn, increases mobility.


Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia affects both the muscles as well as the bones. Muscle spasms, joint pain, inflammation, and muscle weakness are common symptoms of the condition and can grow progressively worse as time goes on. As a chronic condition, many of the symptoms are ongoing creating an ever decreasing quality of life. The use of cold laser therapy can help to control the muscle spasms and weakness, allowing a person to regain their mobility and move more freely. It can also help to relieve pain and reduce inflammation in the joints, giving a person the ability to perform mild exercises that may improve other symptoms of the disorder.


Tendonitis

Tendonitis is a condition that occurs when a person repeatedly makes the same motion over a period of several months or years. Tennis or pitcher's elbow is also another name for this type of injury. The tendons that control a specific movement or movements becomes inflamed, causing extreme pain and discomfort. When cold laser therapy is used to treat tendonitis, the symptoms gradually diminish due to the creation of new cells that begin to take the place of the damaged ones. The more the therapy is used, the stronger the area becomes, allowing the person to return to their normal activities with much less pain and irritation.


Weight Reduction

Cold laser treatments use focused light waves to help eradicate and eliminate fat cells from the body. The fat cells are emulsified so the lymphatic system can take care of the rest and dispose of the fat safely and naturally.
