Being overweight is defined as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) above 26.
Obesity is diagnosed as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 to 39. A Body Mass Index of 40 or more is defined as Morbid Obesity.
The higher the Body Mass Index is the greater are the risks associated with many chronic diseases including heart disease, stroke, hypertension, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and certain cancers.
When morbidly obese individuals have one or more of the above conditions, there is a higher risk of death.
Studies have shown that lifestyle changes in combination with Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) bring greater results than just focusing on diet and exercise alone.

Worried about loose skin after treatment? Fight stretch marks and sagging skin with laser therapy.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also called cold laser therapy, revolutionized non-invasive weight management, fat loss and body contouring treatments. Treatments have been approved by the U.S. FDA 510K and Health Canada for fat reduction. Unlike liposuction and other ‘non-invasive’ weight loss therapies, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is actually pain-free and does not cause scarring.
Low-power lasers are used to target fat in the body. The laser is applied externally and penetrates under the surface of the skin to emulsify fat cells. These are expelled from the body naturally. The treatment is highly specific and can target areas of stubborn fat, including belly fat and under the arms.
