Fat Loss - Circumference Reduction
A study in the Journal of Obesity Surgery researched red light therapy for body contouring. This 2011 double-blind, randomized study performed light therapy at 635-680 nanometers (nm) on participants for four weeks and recorded effects on the waistline. At the end of study, participants had achieved a statistically significant reduction in waistline girth.
- In a similar study published in Lasers in Surgery Medicine, participants who received light therapy showed a significant reduction in overall circumference, including each part of the body. Researchers concluded that light therapy can cut down on the circumference of the specific areas that are treated.
- A 2013 study in the same journal also found benefits from red light therapy at 635 nm for contouring the hips, thighs, and waist. At the end of the trial, researchers found a mean loss of 2.99 inches in overall body size compared to the starting point. Separately, the thigh, waist, and hip areas all showed a reduction too. Researchers concluded that red light therapy at this level and wavelength was safe and clinically effective (Figure A).Figure A: Comparison of inches lost between Test Group and Placebo Group.
Conclusion: The Data Shows That Red Light Therapy Truly Does Enhance Weight and Fat Loss and is an adjunct to obesity when combined with diet and exercise. These are General Wellness Products and have a low risk to users safety. No Physician or license is required to offer the service to others.
Overall, red light therapy has shown positive results for fat loss and body contouring across several different clinical studies. This type of therapy offers a safe, non-invasive alternative for helping people improve their looks and their overall health. It’s time to add weight and fat loss to the long list of light therapy benefits!

Over 60 peer-reviewed papers on tissue repair and pain control. Although most studies use low level lasers, more recent studies reveal very similar results with LED systems. The studies show overwhelming positive results.
