Cellulite typically forms on the buttocks and thighs. It occurs when there are pockets of fat underneath the connective tissue that pushes against the skin. Many factors contribute to the formation of cellulite, including your genes, gender and body fat. LED Light therapy can be used to reduce cellulite.
How It Works
The LED lights work to shrink the cells that produce fat and cellulite. This results in the immediate reduction of cellulite.
There are three wavelength LEDs used during this procedure. The red LED works to stimulate the blood flow and metabolism throughout your body. The blue LED works as an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antipyretic, which refines the skin. The green LED works to reduce skin folds and wrinkles while strengthening your immune system. Recent scientific studies show the Green wavelength reduces cellulite.
Through this procedure the three LED wavelenths work together to break down cellulite fiber conglomerates. LED therapy for cellulite reduction also improves lymphatic drainage. Proper drainage of the lymphatic system is important because its works to support the immune system in destroying pathogens. It is also responsible for the removal of excess fluids and the filtration of waste so that the lymph can circulate through the circulatory system. In cellulite reduction, this process is essential, because when there isn’t proper drainage through the lymphatic system, the tissue in the skin begins to swell. This may also contribute to cellulite. LED therapy reduces your skin sensitivity levels and stretch marks.
LED therapy for cellulite treatment can be combined with whole body vibration to improve circulation. Exercise is also helpful in improving circulation and reducing cellulite. This procedure is a non-invasive treatment that does not require a hospital stay or any amount of recovery time. It typically takes about an hour or less to complete.
The cost of LED cellulite treatment with the LipoRay are very affordable. A single treatment would cost $100. The cost per treatment drops to $60 each with a series of six or more. Payment of half or full balance at first treatment.
