What is Red Light Therapy?
Red Light Therapy is a technology that has both cosmetic and healing effects. The word “healing” is defined as “the natural process by which the body repairs itself.” That is exactly what happens when the body is exposed to Red Light Therapy. We use a proprietary Red Light Therapy system called the “SkinnyLight.”
Where Did Red Light technology Come From?
NASA first developed this technology to grow plants in space, then later to treat wounds in space. Today, Red Light Therapy is being used throughout the medical field to heal patients and is used in salons around the world to rejuvenate the skin. NASA’s ongoing research on Red Light Therapy is now focused on helping cancer patients. This technology does not harm, and there are no known side effects. Red Light Therapy is safe and pain-free, and in fact, patients describe feeling good after a session.
Is Red Light Therapy a Safe Method for Fat Loss?
Red Light in wavelengths between 630-660nm (nanometers) can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin – energizing the fibroblast cells that produce collagen and elastin. This is how the skin repairs damage and rejuvenates its overall appearance. The visible benefits from Red Light Therapy – such as reduced wrinkles and firmer skin – may seem like just a cosmetic enhancement, but they are the result of the body healing itself. Red Light Therapy can target and treat the entire face and body. While the Red Light table may look like a tanning bed, Red Light Therapy is not dangerous because it produces a wavelength far outside of the UV range.
Red Light is often referred to as near-infrared light. Why? Because as demonstrated in a visible light chart, light between 600-750nm is near or close to infrared light. The increased strength of the SkinnyLight Red Light Therapy system allows for body contouring benefits as well.
SkinnyLight stimulates non-invasive permanent fat removal by temporarily opening the fat cells and draining the contents using the body’s natural process of lipolysis. There is no damage to tissue, no pain, no downtime, and no other negative outcomes. Since no cells are removed or destroyed, subsequent weight gain can be normally distributed throughout the body’s fat cells.
How Quickly Will a Patient See Results with Red Light Therapy?
In clinical trials, patients immediately lost an average of 3.5” combined from the waist, hips, and thighs while at each treatment visit, and 98% of those patients lost more than 2”. Patients lost an average of 1.6 liters of fat at the treatment visit. In Vivo studies show that abdominal thickness was immediately reduced by 33%.
What is the Difference Between Laser Treatments and Red Light Therapy?
The primary difference between laser and non-laser light is that all of a laser’s power is focused on a single point as a beam of “coherent” light. Lasers must therefore operate at extremely low power to avoid tissue damage. While low-level lasers are safe on the skin and present a risk of tissue damage only to the eyes, higher power lasers can burn through steel. SkinnyLight does not present a risk to the eyes or any body tissue and is therefore safer than lasers.

In summary, SkinnyLight is the safest targeted weight loss treatment available. Immediate results are scientifically proven, with no long-term side effects. I have personally used it for stubborn belly fat that would not go away, I look and feel so much better and more confident and I highly recommend it as a safe way to get the body you want for the day of your life.
