Learn how contour light therapy may support weight loss efforts.
Red Light Therapy (RLT) involves applying a low-level cold laser to the body in order to stimulate the cells beneath the skin. This type of therapy has been shown to have healing and rejuvenating effects, and may also help boost weight loss efforts. RLT can help support weight loss in the following ways.
Having a fast and healthy metabolism goes a long way in losing weight sustainably. Metabolism describes the body’s process of changing food into energy. The more efficiently your body can do so, the more effective your workout and diet plan can be. RLT can help regulate the hormones that are involved in the body’s metabolism, including thyroid hormones, insulin, and leptin.1
One of the factors commonly stopping people from exercising regularly and developing a go-to routine is the long recovery time that can come with adopting a new strength or cardio program. A difficult recovery can be discouraging and cause people to give up or force them to work out less often than they’d like. RLT assists with the body’s recovery processes and helps boost athletic performance so that you can keep up with your desired fitness regimen.
In cases where injuries are holding individuals back from regular exercise, RLT can also help. RLT is an increasingly common treatment for pain and inflammation. Effectively treating painful symptoms of past injuries or conditions can help pave the way for a more active lifestyle.
Those who leverage RLT alongside a healthy diet and exercise plan see the best results. Some studies have indicated that RLT can help decrease the number of fat cells in the body and target more stubborn weight loss areas. When used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise plan, RLT may:
By working on a cellular level, RLT can effectively supplement diet and exercise as a weight loss aid.
Studies indicating the efficacy of contour light therapy are exciting, but it’s important to recognize that not all RLT providers are equally reputable. While RLT is not dangerous and no negative side effects have been observed, using professional RLT devices and services is crucial for seeing your desired results and protecting your investment of time and resources.
