Study Safety and Effectiveness of CURVE Laser Therapy for Circumference Reduction of the Waistline.

2016-09-21 20:23:22 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the CURVE Low-Level Laser Therapy for circumference reduction of the waistline.


This study involves research to obtain information on the CURVE. In recent years Low Level Laser therapy devices have grown in popularity due to increased scientific understanding of their mechanism of action, published research, and patients demand for more non-invasive procedures in body contour and fat reduction. LLL are widely used in health clinics, medical spas and in aesthetic medicine in the treatment of cellulite and for inflammatory conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome. This study will further evaluate the effectiveness of low-level laser treatments without the extraction of adipose tissue using liposuction or in combination with other treatment modalities.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.

The use of photothermal effects of LASERS to coagulate, incise, vaporize, resect, dissect, or resurface tissue.

Techniques using a laser to cut away and harvest a specific cell or cluster of cells from a tissue section while viewing it under the microscope.
