Red-Light Therapy to Optimize Your Wellness

What if there was a way to tighten your skin, liquidate your fat cells, help improve your mood, build your immunity and decrease chronic pain AND was non-invasive relaxing and safe? You would probably say, this sounds too good to be true! But guess what? It is great news AND it’s true! This powerful and safe technology has been researched and used for over 40 years. All day long we are exposed to damaging frequencies that breakdown our cells and lead to stress and chronic disease. That's why we get wrinkles and age spots and have more and more difficulty as we age.

Red light therapy (photobiomodulation) has been around for decades and this cutting edge technology has been used for years by NASA scientists to not only grow vegetation during space expeditions but also help astronauts maintain their muscle strength while in zero gravity!

Want to skip the science and go straight to the benefits?


So What About Light?

First, let’s talk about LIGHT!!! Did you know light is on spectrum of frequencies? You may have heard about sunlight, blue light, and LED but frequencies also include radio waves, x-rays and microwaves! Some light frequencies are beneficial to our cells and some are harmful! We don’t generally think of light frequencies in our everyday life but we are exposed nearly every moment by frequencies and only a few are visible to the human eye.

As you look at this spectrum, the right of the visible spectrum, we find the types of energy that are lower in frequency (and thus longer in wavelength) than visible light. These types of energy include infrared (IR) rays (heat waves given off by thermal bodies), and radio waves. These types of radiation surround us constantly, and are not harmful, because their frequencies are so low. The lower frequency waves are lower in energy, and thus are not dangerous to our health.

To the left of the visible spectrum, we have ultraviolet (UV) rays, X-rays, and gamma rays. These types of radiation are harmful to living organisms, due to their extremely high frequencies (and thus, high energies). It is for this reason why an X-ray technician will place a lead shield over us, in order to prevent the X-rays from penetrating anything other than the area of our body being imaged. Gamma rays, being the highest in frequency and energy, are the most damaging. Luckily though, our atmosphere absorbs gamma rays from outer space, thereby protecting us from harm.

How Does Our Red-Light System Work at Weigh4Life

Our red light system has powerful frequencies that offer healing benefits to the body. Our unique and powerful duel LED light uses near infrared light to help with skin toning and tightening while the red-light targets the fat cell. Our light system is a third-generation Lipo LED manufactured in the USA that offers 880 nm and 635 nm wavelength lights. The elevated power supplied to the adipose tissue easily removes fat. The human body’s absorption of LEDs (70%) is far higher than conventional lasers (40%), rendering the LED technology inherently efficient. In fact, the light of 880 nm improves the formation of collagen and elastin, rendering the unit excellent for wellbeing.

For red-light therapy to penetrate the human body, it’s important to have the proper strength of the light frequency (880nm/635nm) AND have it within 3 inches of the skin for best results. Our unique system comfortably wraps your body and treatment areas in warm LED light wraps that can treat up to 5 areas at one time all while relaxing!

While you are relaxing, the near infrared and red light penetrates the skin and stimulates the mitochondria (the power house of the cell) and increases ATP production which leads to a wide range of systemic health benefits that include improving skin tone and elasticity, reducing inflammation, improving muscle recovery and liquidating adipocyte cells that hold fat and toxins.

There are so many applications and benefits of red light therapy treatment and the best news is that is has almost no reported negative side effects.

Weight Loss & Cellulite Reduction

When combined with a healthy diet that is low in fat and a combination of light exercise, red-light therapy can be effective in target fat cells for body sculpting and the reduction of fat!

Muscle and Injury Recovery

Wounds Healing & Tissue Repair

Decreased Joint Pain, Chronic Pain and Inflammation

Risks and Side Effects of Red Light Therapy

There are generally no side effects with red light therapy with most common compliant being tiredness or partial redness of the skin. However, it is still recommended to consult with a doctor before using it as a treatment for any medical condition and to never use it as a substitute for prescribed medical treatments.
