How It Works
Red Light Therapy uses very low levels of heat and doesn’t hurt or burn the skin. It’s not the same type of light used in tanning booths, and it doesn’t expose your skin to damaging UV rays.
Why Do It Now
The mechanism of red light therapy for weight loss increases metabolic rate. In addition to the metabolic boost we see, red light therapy also improves blood flow in the area it is applied.
Helps With Workouts
A recent study by the University of Sao Paulo (2015) showed a doubling of the rate of fat loss when combined with light therapy when applied immediately after weight training.
Frequently asked questions
Red light therapy also known as “Low-level laser (light) therapy (LLLT) is a fast-growing technology used to treat a multitude of conditions that require stimulation of healing, relief of pain and inflammation, and restoration of function.” It applies red light to the skin to help stimulate cell renewal and help restore function to different areas of the body. There are little to no side effects associated with this treatment and can help improve both chronic and acute pain.
The principle of red light therapy for weight loss can be thought of as like a human version of the way plants photosynthesize. It is thought that certain wavelengths of light can enhance the functioning of mitochondria, which are the organelles in a cell which take in nutrients and break them down to create energy molecules for the cell. By enhancing the cellular respiration, it will improve the functioning of the whole cell.
The main benefits of red light therapy are thought to have come from the energy exchange. The responses of cells and tissues to red light therapy, which does not itself produce much heat, can be comparable to the body’s reaction to heat. Certain wavelengths of red light can penetrate beyond the skin’s surface, where it is absorbed into the cells deeper than other wavelengths of visible light can. This deeper-reaching light can have the following benefits:
Red light therapy uses visible light in the form of lasers or LED. It cannot affect DNA so cannot cause cells to mutate or cause cancer. Red light therapy for weight loss is generally tolerated very well, although results will vary between people and some conditions will respond better than others.
In some cases, for example, using red light therapy for pain relief, effects can be noticed as soon as 20 minutes after a treatment session. In comparison, wound healing enhancement may be first noticeable after 24 hours.
Dosages vary depending on what condition you are trying to treat, and it is always best to consult a doctor for advice on how often you should use red light therapy. For anti-aging, some regimens suggest 2-3 treatments per week for 3-6 weeks, and then a single maintenance session every two weeks. This however changes for the age of the client and the severity of the condition they are looking to improve.
