When it comes to stubborn belly fat, we’ve tried everything from fad diets to extreme workout regimens with little to no avail. But what if there was a way to target that pesky fat without spending extra hours at the gym or undergoing risky surgery? Sculptology has long specialized in helping both men and women achieve slimmer waistlines with noninvasive CoolSculpting, and we’re excited to now also offer cutting-edge red light therapy to our clients as an option. So, you may be wondering… but does it work? Can red light therapy reduce belly fat? Let’s take a closer look.
How Does Red Light Therapy Work?
Red light therapy, or RLT, is a type of phototherapy that uses red and near-infrared light wavelengths to penetrate the skin’s surface. This light has been shown to boost energy levels, improve mood, reduce inflammation, treat wrinkles, help muscle and joint pain, and speed up wound healing.
Can Red Light Therapy Reduce Belly Fat?
So, can red light therapy reduce belly fat? YES! Some evidence suggests that RLT may be effective in reducing belly fat or assisting in weight loss. As for weight loss, red light therapy is thought to work by stimulating the production of mitochondria.
Mitochondria are often called the “powerhouses” of our cells because they produce the energy they need to function correctly. Red light therapy is thought to help the body burn fat more effectively by stimulating the production of mitochondria. In other words, once the wavelengths hit the subcutaneous fat layer, they convert into cellular energy that leads to improved circulation and, most importantly, accelerated metabolism of stored fat cells. In other words, RLT tricks your body into thinking it’s exercising when relaxing under a LED light panel!
Numerous scientific studies support the efficacy of RLT in reducing stubborn fat, including a 2014 study published in the International Journal of Obesity. In this study, 56 participants were given four weekly RLT treatments over eight weeks at the end of the study period; those who had received RLT treatments showed significant reductions in waist circumference and hip circumference compared to those in the placebo group.
Another study published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine in 2016 found similar results, with participants who received RLT treatments showing significant reductions in abdominal adiposity (fat tissue) after just four weeks. Researchers believe increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage caused by RLT may help explain these results. Another study concluded that RLT reduced the size of abdominal fat cells in rats. At the same time, another found that RLT increased the number of mitochondria in human fat cells, which could lead to increased fat burning. And yet another small study showed that participants exposed to red and near-infrared light for 30 minutes three times per week for four weeks lost an average of 1.3 inches from their waistlines.
