Low-level Laser-assisted Liposculpture: Clinical Report of 700 Cases
In a 2002 Aesthetic Surgery Journal study, surgeons treated fat during liposuction procedures. They used 635 nm red light at 14 mV on 700 liposuction patients. They found that red light applied directly to fat during the procedure enhanced the results. The use of low level light therapy during surgery allowed the surgeons to remove more fat than when the site was not treated with red light.
“Excellent aesthetic results, including an improved silhouette contour, smooth abdominal surface, and good skin retraction, were obtained in 95% of cases. Postoperative recovery was rapid, and complications were minimal.”
