If you’re one of the many women unhappy with their cellulite, you may have heard of red light therapy as a potential solution. At Sculptology, the Bay Area’s leading medical aesthetics spa, we love to help both men and women look and feel more confident, so one of the many wellness treatment options we offer is red light therapy. If you’re ready to say goodbye to your cottage cheese for good, keep reading to learn more about how red light therapy at Sculptology may help.

First, What Causes Cellulite? 

Before diving into how red light therapy can help get rid of cellulite, let’s first take a quick refresher on cellulite. Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath your skin, resulting in the telltale orange peel or cottage cheese appearance. It’s characterized by dimpled, lumpy skin, usually on the thighs and buttocks. It’s certainly not painful or harmful, and it’s normal to have some cellulite (80-90% of women over 20 have it!). Still, it’s understandable that many women feel self-conscious about cellulite and would love a painless, non-invasive way to eliminate it. That’s where red light therapy comes in.

How Does Red Light Therapy Work? 

Red light therapy stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin by exciting the mitochondria, or the powerhouse of your cells. Collagen is a protein that gives the skin structure and elasticity, while elastin helps the skin snap back into place. As we age, our bodies produce fewer important proteins, resulting in wrinkles, sagging skin, and a generally unhealthy appearance. Red light therapy can help reverse this process by stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in firmer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin. How soon you see the benefits depends on various factors, as we covered previously in our blog: How Long Does it Take For Red Light Therapy to Work?

Does Red Light Therapy Get Rid of Cellulite?

So, the big question! Does red light therapy get rid of cellulite? This popular skincare treatment is already known for its anti-aging and acne-fighting benefits. Now, some promising research suggests it may be effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite! While there’s no definitive answer as to whether or not red light therapy can get rid of cellulite, in a recent study, participants who received regular red light therapy treatments saw significant improvement in the dimpling of their skin and a principal reduction in the circumference around their thighs.

Red light therapy uses LED lights to penetrate your skin and boost circulation. This increased blood flow can help break up the fat cells responsible for cellulite and also help increase collagen production, resulting in firmer, smoother skin. Most treatments are quick (less than 30 minutes) and painless, making them easy to fit into even the busiest schedules. Plus, there’s no downtime afterward, so you can immediately go about your day as usual!
