Reduce Cellulite with Red and Near-Infrared Light Therapy
Red light therapy has a profound effect on reducing fat layers and eliminating cellulite.
Cellulite is a problem caused by a combination of unhealthy collagen and elastin in the skin layers, combined with excess fat accumulation in the fat cells in that area. (The health of the extracellular matrix likely also plays a role.)
Red and near-infrared light therapy actually combat cellulite in three ways:
- By bolstering production of collagen and elastin (and supporting the health of the extracellular matrix—the fibrous support structure around cells).
- By supporting blood circulation and blood vessel health in the area.
- By causing fat cells to release their fat contents into the blood where they may be burned off.
One study found that when red and near-infrared light therapy is combined with massage, it led to an astounding 71% reduction in cellulite!
Another study that assessed the use of red and near-infrared light therapy on skin health found that “91% of subjects reported improved skin tone, and 82% reported enhanced smoothness of skin in the treatment area.”
In fact, this is one of the only scientifically proven ways to reduce cellulite, and likely, the single most powerful.
