With weight loss, it is common for some to fine-tune their hard-earned results with non-invasive medical grade red light therapy.

Red Light Therapy F.A.Q.s

What is red light therapy?

Red light therapy is a non-invasive, safe alternative to liposuction as well as pain reduction, eyelash/brow regrowth, reduction in the appearance of fine lines, cellulite, sun spots, and stretch marks. It was developed by NASA and has been proven to promote collagen production and remove fat from within the fat cells! The red light therapy is 100% non-invasive and does not cause any bruising or scarring. Clients will see a reduction of inches in their very first session! The best results are achieved with multiple sessions within a few weeks’ time period.

How does red light therapy work?

The unique light emitted from our Red Light Therapy causes the fat cell membranes to temporarily alter the permeability of the cell wall. This brief change allows some of the fat contents to seep out to where it can then be processed by the body. After the fat seeps out of the cell the membrane then shrinks down to a smaller size leaving you with inches lost. It also helps promote your body’s natural healing ability by stimulating the cells to regenerate and create more collagen, which then reduces the visibility of scars, stretch marks and cellulite on the body. With the cell regeneration and collagen production increased this allows your body to tighten the loose skin that may be left behind due to weight loss.

What areas of the body can be treated?

The red light therapy treatment can be effectively used on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist, but are resistant to diet and exercise, as well as any other areas you may have pain or loose skin and marks/scars. This includes the face, neck, tummy, waist, hips, thighs and upper arms.

What happens to the fat?

After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and enter the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, the fatty acids can be either used as fuel or quickly eliminated by the body.

Do I have to follow a diet?

While being treated with red light therapy, you are not required to diet. However, you can expect better results if you reduce the amount of sugar and carbs you consume and increase your water consumption. Meanwhile, reducing alcohol consumption will help the liver. Ask us about doing Red Light Therapy with our ShiftSetGo weight loss program for optimal results!

Do I have to exercise?

Each of your sessions should be followed by at least 10 minutes of exercise to stimulate circulation and help process the fat that has been released. We include Whole Body Vibration and PureWave massage as part of each session.

How much does it cost?

We offer affordable packages of 5 sessions for $699.00, 10 sessions for $999.00, and 20 sessions for $1299.00. Since best results are seen after multiple sessions and the larger the package you purchase, the better the value.  We occasionally offer amazing deals and specials!

How many sessions do I need?

You will see results from your very first session! Best results are seen after a series of sessions and 10-20 are a good fit for most. Your tech will review the options at your initial consult. It’s like getting a tan, you want to continue to build on it frequently at first, then it’s just maintenance.

What to expect when you come in for your Red Light Therapy sessions:

You will need to make sure you don’t eat for one hour before and one hour after treatment. DO drink two glasses of water one hour before your session. Before your initial appointment, you will fill out our Red Light Therapy form online. The link for this form will be in your confirmation email. Your red light therapy session will then begin with our technician showing you to a comfortable, private room outfitted with our state of the art red light therapy machine and a comfortable treatment bed. The pads need direct skin contact in order to work so wear appropriate undergarments to your appointment. You will lay on the treatment bed and the red light therapy pads will then be wrapped around or laid over the treatment areas you’ve chosen. The machine is then turned on and you will lay there for 20 minutes (the lights are fully effective within the first 15 minutes of contact). When your initial session is complete, your technician will come in and unwrap you then allow you to get dressed and your technician will go over the after care instructions. The technician will then show you to another room where you will stand on a whole body vibration machine for 10 minutes. This will help your body stimulate blood flow which helps with lymphatic drainage as well as the fat reduction process. Since there is no down time you are free to go about your day as usual.
