No harm is done to the fat cells. They simply shrink to a fraction of the size.
After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol, and then enters the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, the fatty acids can either be used as fuel or they are quickly eliminated by the body.
The treatment can be effectively used on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. This includes the waist, hips, upper legs, thighs and upper arm.
You will see some results from your first session. Best results are seen after a series of sessions – 12-20 are a good fit for most people. Your tech will review the options at your initial consult.
The results can be very long-lasting. This method, however, does not destroy fat cells, but releases some of their contents. If you regain the fat, your body will eventually store the fat again. We will work with you to implement lifestyle and diet changes to make sure your results are as long-lasting as possible. After the initial sessions, to retain the collagen boosting effect, 1-2 treatments a month is all that is needed for maintenance, along with healthy choices. This combination will give you the greatest results.
There are no risks or side effects involved. Red light therapy is a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction or cool-sculpting.
No dietary changes are required, but you can expect the best results if you reduce your caloric intake, eliminate fast/processed foods and increase your water consumption to 10 glasses a day. We also recommend eliminating or reducing alcohol consumption to help the liver.

Each of your sessions is followed by at least 10 minutes of a full-body workout session on our whole body vibration machine to stimulate circulation and help burn the fat that has been released.
The unique light emitted from Red Light Therapy causes the fat cell membranes to temporarily alter the permeability of the cell wall. This brief change allows some of the fat contents to seep out to where it can then be processed by the body.
Clients undergoing RLT have noticed an improvement with cellulite as well as skin tone and texture.
Any one with a pacemaker, defibrillator, transplanted organ, someone who is pregnant or nursing, active cancer or is going through chemotherapy cannot participate in Red Light Therapy.
