Red light therapy is an innovative therapeutic technique that utilizes red, low-level wavelengths to treat skin problems like scars, wrinkles, persistent wounds, and other conditions. It works by producing a biochemical effect in the cells that strengthens the mitochondria, which are the dynamos of the cell and where cellular energy is produced. We followed the research showing how red light therapy came about and how it has been found to be quite effective as a weight loss treatment.
Initially, red light therapy was discovered when a liposuction physician decided to utilize it for its ability to reduce swelling, pain, and inflammation involved with liposuction procedures. Imagine their surprise when it made the fat easier to remove! The good news is that you don’t have to go through the invasive process of liposuction to have red light therapy go to work on your fat cells– just using red light by itself causes the fat cells to release their contents. The fat is converted to harmless components that your body removes safely and naturally.
