What Services Does Las Vegas Laser & Lipo Provide?
Dr. Edward Zimmerman and his team of professionals at Las Vegas Laser & Lipo offer a variety of cosmetic and medical services that include the following:
• Laser hair removal
• MLS laser therapy
What is MLS laser therapy?
MLS laser therapy is a treatment for chronic pain. It uses both continuous and pulsed light beams to reduce pain and swelling. The laser’s light penetrates deep beneath the skin to stimulate the healing processes in damaged tendons, muscles, and ligaments. It also increases circulation and draws water, oxygen, and nutrients to the treatment site.
The MLS laser has been used to treat the following conditions:
• Back and joint pain
• Disc disease
• Post-surgical swelling
• Sore muscles
• Sports injuries
What About Liposuction?
As might be guessed, liposuction procedures are among the most commonly performed at Las Vegas Laser & Lipo. Many of the procedures are some type of tumescent liposuction, in which the doctor injects a solution that contains an anesthetic and causes the fat cells to swell up. Other state-of-the-art lipo techniques are utilized as well.
