Experimental: Erchonia Verju and EVRL Laser
The Erchonia Verju Laser has 6 diodes that each emit 17 milliwatts (mW) 532 nanometers (nm) of green laser light.
The Erchonia EVRL Laser emits 635 nanometers (nm) red light and 405 nm blue light simultaneously
Device: Erchonia Verju Laser
The Erchonia Verju Laser is applied 2 times a week to the front and back of the waist, hips and upper abdomen for 30 minutes each time over 8 to 12 weeks.
Device: Erchonia EVRL Laser
The Erchonia EVRL Laser is applied under the right ribcage angled towards the liver for 10 minutes, one time per week over the same 8 to 12 weeks as the Verju Laser is administered.
- Percent (%) change from Baseline to Subject Study Endpoint evaluation in aminoalanine transaminase (ALT) level. [ Time Frame: 2 or 3 months ]
