How Long Does Red Light Body Contouring Take?

One of the most common cosmetic and medical goals is losing fat and weight. Few people would turn down the opportunity to lose a few pounds or to cut back the fat in certain areas of their body. Many people are not familiar with red light body contouring. It is a form of therapy designed to stimulate cellular energy production and reduce oxidative stress. It uses a device that delivers concentrated but safe wavelengths of natural light to the cells and skin.

According to researchers, this therapy helps the body to get rid of fat cells and lipids. It may also work in other ways that affect weight loss and fat. According to an International Journal of Endocrinology study conducted in 2012, this therapy can affect hunger levels. It can also help control hunger-related hormones, known as ghrelin and leptin, in a sleep-deprived person. Some light body therapy devices are designed to treat inflammation, strain, and pain.

How Long Does It Last?

Red light body contouring is a new innovative technology that uses a special kind of therapeutic light. This light opens up and penetrates fat cells, and then liquefies the fat to make it easier to remove it and burn it as energy. Consequently, the fat cells become smaller and so does the body. Essentially, you will visibly become smaller in the targeted areas. This is a pain-free, nonsurgical, and healthy way to lose your body fat.

Light body therapy takes approximately 20 minutes, and the results will depend on your body. The difference between excellent and good results solely depends on the individual receiving the treatment. In other words, it depends on how dedicated you are to reach your goals. As a noninvasive treatment, red light therapy is quite safe. It is a great alternative to procedures such as liposuction. During treatment, you will feel a relaxing and pleasant warmth over the treatment area.

When it comes to the number of sessions you need, this will depend on several factors. These include your eating habits, number of inches you want to lose, exercise habits, body fat percentage, and area of concern. A normal treatment course usually takes 12 sessions over four to six weeks. You will probably have a fat loss of anywhere from a half an inch to two and a half inches after each session.

To enhance the results, consider adding whole body vibration workouts. If you have a high body fat percentage, you may need more sessions. The fat you lose will not come back on its own. However, as with any other form of fat loss strategy, you will need to maintain good eating and exercise habits to maintain fat loss.

It is possible to see some results after your first session. After 20 minutes of red light body contouring, your abdominal girth can reduce by one to two inches. To live a happy and healthy life, you need to take care of your body and mind.
