Red Light Tharapy (Laser Lipo alternative) as a Non-Invasive Method For Fat Loss
“The red light therapy (LED) technology that we use here at Ultraslim leads the non-invasive lipo-reduction industry. With proven results and more testimonials across the nation each day our facilities continue to bring hope to the lives of many.”
The power of light is undeniable. It makes plants grow, warms our skin, and makes life on this planet possible. It can burn our skin if we are not careful or it can heal wounds if used properly. Red light technology has been used in the United States for close to 50 years to aid in medical procedures, however, it wasn’t until recently that the effects of these instruments were studied in the realm of fat loss and body contouring.
In 2001, Dr. Rodrigo Neira, M.D. and Clara Ortiz-Neira, M.D. demonstrated that a specially calibrated laser held within 6-8 inches of the skin could emulsify subcutaneous fat and increase collagen and elastin production in the skin. During their research they discovered that when fat cells were irradiated with a very specific frequency of light they could actually trick the mitochondria of the fat cell into thinking that the cell was in a state of famine. The fat cell then opened up a small, transitory pore in its membrane and released its contents into the interstitial space. These contents (mostly triglycerides) are then utilized by the body as a source of energy in times of need. The pore generally closes in 48-72 hours and the body processes the fat through its normal channels. The fat cell is not harmed in the process and the surrounding tissue is not damaged. The frequency of the light is also low enough so that heat is not emitted from the instrument, so the process is completely pain-free!
How Red Light Therapy Works
Red light therapy has been used in hospital burn units, as part of “smart” liposuction, and in non-narcotic pain relief. Red light technologies remove fat and reduce inches without invasive surgery. There are no needles, no incisions, and no recovery time. These technologies are all based on modulating a specific type of red light. The modulated red light tricks the mitochondria in the nucleus of the fat cell into creating a transitory pore in the cell membrane, allowing the fatty acids and triglycerides to escape into the interstitial space.
The liberated fat cell contents is then drained by the lymphatic system and processed by the liver as part of the body’s normal course of detoxification. The pore in the fat cell will close in about 48-72 hours and the liberated contents will be expelled in the patient’s stool over the next few days.
The L.E.D. Technology delivers greater photonic energy and fat reduction than laser or other light lipo competing products, using 144 modulated high-power light-emitting diodes rather than 5 low-power laser-emitting diodes. Unlike other technologies, the L.E.D. system does not touch the body, but covers an area 23″ x 17″.
As you will see, L.E.D. is faster, more effective, covers a larger area, covers that area more uniformly, and does not touch the skin.
