Body Contouring

Erchonia lasers are proven to target and release fat in areas that are difficult to target with regular diet and exercise. The Zerona laser is proven to target these difficult areas to open a transitory pore in the cell membrane to release fat. The Erchonia EML laser is approved as an addition to traditional liposuction surgery. It is the first and only low-level laser to be given FDA market clearance for use immediately before liposuction. The painless laser treatment is applied prior to liposuction and liquefies the fat. This makes for a much easier removal of fat, and results in less post-op pain and bruising as well as a much shorter recovery time.

Neck and Shoulder Pain

Erchonia low level lasers are proven to be effective in reducing and eliminating chronic pain in the neck & shoulders. Many patients find that this solution is a much more effective and immediate alternative to traditional pain medications. The Erchonia lasers have been proven through rigorous clinical trials in which subjects had to refrain from any therapies, besides the laser. However in practice doctors are combining forms with forms of chiropractors and therapy, to help patients lead a normal, active, and healthy life without debilitating pain.

Acne

Currently, there are many acne treatments available in the form of pills, lotions, tonics, chemicals, and more, but Erchonia has developed a new solution with the EVRL LASER. This FDA market cleared laser targets the actual type of bacteria that is responsible for causing acne, rather than targeting the skin. This treatment does not lead to irritated skin cells because it attacks the cause of acne at the root. Rather than spending many months or years on powerful antibiotics, creams, and more, patients can now attach their acne with painless low-level laser treatments. Cold lasers are currently undergoing studies for new indications for use. Though it is a relatively new field of medicine, Erchonia’s commitment to low-level laser treatment has made great advancements for laser technology. The future of medical lasers is certainly bright.

FAQs

Erchonia Laser Uses in Medical Field

No, most people do not feel anything. For those that have reported a feeling, it is nothing more than a slight tingling.

The mechanics of low low-level laser therapy is based on the indication for use; however, the general process is the probe containing the laser diode(s) are held in place or moved gently over the treatment area at a distance of anywhere from 4” – 12.”

This is dependent on the application; however, progress is immediately evident.

Erchonia 3LT® devices used electric diodes, which are high end, culminated and strictly measured within a plus/minus .05%. LEDs are inexpensive, non-focused wide range light sources. The primary difference is in performance and depth of penetration. Laser diodes penetrate, working subcutaneously, LEDs do not affecting the surface only.

“To all skeptics, I am now a believer. I beseech all of you. Give the Laser Treatments a chance.”

“I was able to turn nerves back on in a stroke patient to get him off the walker and off the cane, walking so that you couldn’t tell he had had a stroke, the right arm flexion contracture released, and his occasional aphasia stopped, all 18 months post-stroke. Wow.”

Ken de Groot, DC, DABCO, DABDA

“This is one of the finest pieces of equipment i own – probably the best. The engineering is superb and you should be proud of the excellent design and function of these lasers. For me i have no doubt, this laser has literally saved my life.”

Dr. Bert Rodriguez

I would recommend the use of the FX-635 for all practitioners who deal with chronic low back pain. Back pain does not discriminate between genders, ethnic groups and activity levels. The FX is the choice for all back pain suffers.
