Light therapy can result in fat loss and fat cell reduction. Red light triggers the formation of small openings or pores in fat cells, which releases fatty acids known as lipids. One study found that just four minutes of exposure to 635nm red light caused 80% of lipids to be released from fat cells, and by six minutes, almost all of the fat had been released.
Visible red light is capable of penetrating the skin to a depth of about 8 To 10mm. Once absorbed, the light energy is converted to cellular energy, stimulating the body’s natural processes on a cellular level and kicking off a whole series of metabolic events, which may include:
All of these things work together to produce many benefits for you in the areas of anti-aging, the healing of injuries, and the relief of pain.
