1. What can I expect during a Weight Loss Light Therapy session?
During the treatment, you will be placed lying down on a treatment table. Special pads will be positioned in strategic places on your body as you simply enjoy a relaxing 25 minute session.
The unique light emitted 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. The process also increases collagen and elastin in the skin while creating a slimmer appearance.
2. How does Weight Loss Light Therapy work?
After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and enters the blood stream. Once in the blood stream, the fatty acids can be either used as fuel or quickly eliminated by the body.
3. What happens to the fat cells?
The fat cells shrink to a fraction of their original size.
4. Why do you recommend a Liver Cleanse?
Your liver is the ultimate filter to remove toxins and nutrient byproducts from the body. The fast release of fat can sometimes overwhelm the liver and for this reason a high quality liver cleanse is recommended.
5. What area of the body can be treated?
Weight Loss Light Therapy 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 arms.
6. How soon will I see results?
Results are usually seen after just one treatment.
7. How long lasting are the results?
The results can be very long-lasting. However, Weight Loss Light Therapy does not destroy fat cells but releases some of their contents. If your caloric intake is significantly higher than you require, your body will eventually store fat again. For this reason, we recommend a maintenance program of once or twice per month after the desired results are attained.
8. Are there risks involved?
There are no risks or side effects involved with Weight Loss Light Therapy. It is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction. This treatment is 100% non-invasive and does not cause any bruising or scarring.
9. Are there any contraindications for its use?
Although Weight Loss Light Therapy is very safe, there are the usual contraindications which include: Pregnancy, Active Cancer, Pacemaker, HIV/AIDs, and Hepatitis C.
10. Do I have to follow a diet?
No changes are required, but you can expect better results if you reduce your caloric intake somewhat and increase your water consumption. For deitary recommendations check out our Best Practices page.
11. Do I have to exercise?
Each of your sessions should be followed by 10 minutes of exercise or whole body vibration to stimulate circulation and help burn the fat that has been released.
12. Does Weight Loss Light Therapy help with cellulite and loose skin?
Patients undergoing Weight Loss Light Therapy have noticed an improvement with cellulite as well as skin tone and texture.
13. What research has been done?
Weight Loss Light Therapy is based on over forty years of research starting with NASA experimentation and culminating with the aesthetic and orthopedic industries today. Following the recent discovery that 635nm light has an effect on fat cells, this new technology has created an explosion in the body sculpting industry.
