Everything You Need to Know On How You Can Effectively Lose Weight With Red Light Therapy

The Struggle With Weight Loss
Losing weight and unwanted fat (not that fat is ever wanted) is a common goal for a lot of us. But, with environmental factors, whether your schedule, stress, or health issues all can prevent the body's metabolic rate from working the way it should. Making the solution not always as simple as a proper diet and exercise.

If you are with me on being frustrated because working out and dieting has not worked, then continue reading as Red Light Therapy (the correct type) can help you to lose weight and I have the pictures to prove it.
How Does RED Light Therapy Work to Reduce Fat?

In a few previous articles, I briefly discussed how red-light uniquely impacts the human body. Our bodies absorb light energy—especially at specific wavelengths —and our cells respond by performing their day-to-day functions at an improved level. Not only does this help with things like anti-aging, skin health and collagen, but it also plays a role in the body’s ability to process fat.

This infrared light triggers selected fat cells to create small openings and release some of their contents, thus helping them shrink in size.

Are All Red Light Therapy Machines The Same?
No, no and NO! During this process I had many people say, oh I tried that at the tanning salon or the gym. While the premise behind these fat burning machines are somewhat similar, it is far from the same when it comes to actual results. And if you are like me, I do not have money to waste.

Why Is Slim Light Therapy Different Than Other Red Light Therapy?
It is all in the device and the strength. The Slim Light device at Slim Silhouettes, med spa delivers up to 100 times the light energy of competing systems, and the fat cells are bathed in the highest level of 635nm energy, providing the deepest and most complete exposure to the light. 

Furthermore, Slim Silhouettes is the only medical facility that carries such a high strength device (level laser therapy) in northern VA. So why would I go anywhere else?

How Many Areas Can Be Focused On To Lose Fat?
The Slim Light controller system comes with six pads and a face mask that can be used at the same time on the treatment areas. This allows Slim Silhouettes to thoroughly treat up to eleven regions including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms, bra fat area, jowls, chin fat region, and face in a single session!

How Does Slim Light Therapy Melt The Fat Away?
Slim Light is an FDA-approved, non-invasive system that harnesses the power of LED Red light therapy, or low-level laser therapy (LLLT), to enhance blood flow and assist in fat loss. 

This innovative approach encourages fat to exit the fat cells and be released into the surrounding tissues, allowing the body's lymphatic system to eliminate it. The fat is subsequently processed by the liver and utilized as an energy source.

My Successful Fat Loss Program
Not only does Slim Silhouettes offer the red light technology but they also tie in a Melt Your Fat Away plan that helps you to optimize the slim light therapy. See below as I walk you through the entire process.

Step 1: Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Slim Light (red light) Therapy?
Your first visit will include a free no-obligation consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for the Slim Light therapy.

As with any medical procedure, determining whether this is for you is essential as the Slim Light (red light) therapy is not for everyone.

It is crucial for me to say that this is not a weight loss program for those that are obese. This a non-invasive therapy for those who are close to their ideal weight (within 30 lbs) but are struggling with troubled areas, due to baby fat, stress, muffin top, and areas that no matter how much you exercise it won’t go away. As the trouble with fat reduction when dieting is you can’t target a specific area, but with red light therapy you can.

Visceral Fat Vs. Subcutaneous Fat
I am bringing this up as Red Light therapy does not work on visceral fat. So what is the difference between visceral and subcutaneous fat? 

The fat you can pinch on your waist, arms, legs, or anywhere else is all subcutaneous fat, stored just beneath the skin. Visceral fat is a different beast: the deep, internal fat packed around your abdominal organs.

Step 2: Evaluating Your Body With Body Composition Monitor with Scale
During my initial visit, I had a free consultation as well as a total body analysis that allowed them to determine what targeted areas I needed to focus on.

Besides the obvious health concerns related to excess fat, finding out more about your body besides what you see in the mirror or on the scale is essential! Hence the concept of body contouring as the red light therapy has proven itself to be extremely useful when it comes to change your body from the inside out physically.

To determine where you are and where you want to be, you step onto a total body composition machine that measures seven different fitness indicators:
  • Body fat percentage
  • BMI
  • Skeletal muscle
  • Resting metabolism
  • Visceral fat
  • Body age 
  • Weight
Step 3: Prepare Before Your Red Light Therapy Procedure
Once you have all the medical advice and have determined your melt that fat away plan, it is important however to make sure you know what you need to do for the best results, see these below.
  • Before each appointment, you want to make sure that you drink plenty of water to keep you hydrated.
  • Don’t eat 1 hour before or after the appointment.
  • Wear loose clothing, preferably something that is not black as the light does not go through black.

Step 4: The Number Red Light Therapy Sessions Required
Typically it takes 10 to 12 sessions for significant and long-lasting results. This type of therapy is cumulative, and consistency is essential. Therefore, it is recommended that you come every other day to allow your body time to process the extra fat.

How Many Red Light Therapy Sessions I Had
I had a total of 10 sessions in which I focused on my midsection, everything below my bra line and above my bikini area.

Treatment is not invasive, they wrap the area in which you want to lose fat with the slim light pads. The experience is very relaxing as you get to lay down, listen to music, and most like me fall asleep.

How Long Does The Red Light Treatment Take?
60 minutes in total. This includes treatment and exercise. The initial visit and final course treatment visit will take an additional 10-15 minutes to take measurements before and after each treatment.

Other Questions And Other Beauty Bits
Why Do You Have To Exercise Post-treatment?

It is essential that post-treatment that you do some type of exercise (10- 20 mins) to speed up the lymphatic system and blood circulation that helps to process the fat that has been released. Slim Silhouettes has a whole body vibrational exercise machine that the clients can use after their treatment while still in the office, thus assuring that the exercise requirement has been met.

Why Do You Have To Do A Liver Support?
Dr. Nichols and staff does recommend this as your liver is the ultimate filter to remove toxins and nutrient byproducts from the body. The fast release of fat requires a healthy liver, and therefore high-quality liver support like Milk Thistle is recommended.

Do I Have To Diet?
You do have to reduce your calorie intake while limiting starchy carbs and simple sugars. They also recommend lessening alcohol as it can affect the liver which will work against the treatment, decreasing the results.

Why Do I Have To Drink So Much Water?
Drinking water is imperative to help flush out the fat. A tip I learned is to drink lemon water as it cleanses your body from the inside out.

Why Do I Have To Use A Body Cincher?
Waist Trainers, Shapewear, and Cinchers are recommended! While these are not an alternative for working out, they do have their benefits. So, adding one of these types of compression garments is a must, primarily as they help mold the area and prevent you from retaining fluid.

How Long Does It Take To Show Results?
Red light therapy has no negative side effects and can produce immediate and lasting results. However, it doesn't eliminate fat cells; rather, it reduces their size and assists in releasing some of their contents. If you consume significantly more calories than you need, your body will eventually store fat once more.

For this reason, after the desired results are attained from the Slim Light Therapy,  Slim Silhouettes recommends their Total Body Bundle which combines both Slim Light Therapy with CoolSculpting.

My Results
You can see my results here and as you can see it does work. I lost over 4 inches in my midsection.

My Before And After

My Final Thoughts
Overall, red light therapy has shown positive results for fat loss and body contouring for me, and you will see the results in my next article. This type of treatment offers a safe, non-invasive alternative for helping people improve their looks and their overall health. 

But as noted before, wavelength and intensity are incredibly important when it comes to light therapy. Make sure you choose a medical facility that uses a device that delivers red light with the correct wavelength with an optimal amount of power.
