Q. Is Laser Lipo (LLLT) safe?
A. Low light laser energy is part of the range of electromagnetic rays that are absolutely necessary for metabolism and growth of human beings and is also part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight minus the skin damaging UV rays, which is why NASA currently uses this type of energy in space. It is also vibration energy, with which the human body resonates. This is the reason that it can penetrate through the skin.
Q. I don’t know much about Laser Lipo, can you explain it to me?
A. Sunlight is a combination of visible, UV and infrared light. Red laser light is longer in wavelength than visible light and starts just after the visible color of red. Red laser light is the safest and healthiest spectrum of sunlight. Red laser light from the sun accounts for 70% of the heating of the Earth, the rest being caused by visible light. It is therefore understood that a good combination of visible light and red laser light offer the most benefits in electromagnetic heating of objects that absorb infrared such as the human body. Other forms of heat such as fire and ceramic heaters, etc, warm a person by heating the surrounding air that touches the person which does not penetrate deeply into the body. Red laser light heat penetrates the skin and is much more effective. Certain red laser light wavelengths also interact with living cells increasing metabolism, energy production, and causing more fuel (calories) to be burned.
Q. What are the benefits of Laser Lipo (LLLT)?
A. Laser Lipo produces near-infrared (600nm – 700nm). The human cells have light sensitive chemicals called chromophores which react to light in the 600nm – 700nm range. When stimulated by energy in this range, the cells produce more ATP which is the energy source that powers every muscle and increases metabolism. Red laser light also causes DNA synthesis in the fibroblasts of the cells which makes the skin more elastic and younger looking. In addition, near-infrared light promotes cellular healing, thus reducing the recovery time after a workout. LLLT is used without exercise while relaxing and is very effective in heating up the body. Laser Lipo accelerates the body’s natural detoxification processes.
Q. How long has this technology been around?
A. LLLT in a similar fashion has been used in Europe and Asia since 1999. It is only now catching on in North America.
