Can You Reduce Fat with LED Light?
- Posted on: Sep 15 2018
You’ve heard of CoolSculpting, which uses freezing temperatures to kill fat cells. You may have heard of SculpSure, which uses laser energy to break down fat cells. Now LED energy has joined the fat-shrinking possibilities in a new device called Slim Sculpt. We offer Slim Sculpt at our Slim Sculpt Studios in Summerlin, Nevada.
What is Slim Sculpt?
The Slim Sculpt system is designed to address unwanted pockets of stubborn fat in areas such as the lower abdomen, the flanks, thighs, and other problem areas. The fat reduction system utilizes LED energy to break down fat. The result is inches lost in the treatment area.
The Slim Sculpt LED treatments are combined with exercise, weight loss, and nutritional strategies to promote and maintain long-term reduction.
How does Slim Sculpt work?
The LED energy of Slim Sculpt penetrates the patient’s skin at a specific wavelength (635nm and 880 nm). These wavelengths correspond to those of adipose fat cells. The LED energy then penetrates the adipose cell walls. This releases free fatty acids, water, and glycerol from the cells. Together these are known as triglycerides. When the body needs energy, triglycerides are normally released from the fat cells. So, when the LED energy forces this release, the body can use the released materials for energy. This shrinks the adipose cells, decreasing the waist (or other areas).
Exercise is recommended immediately after a Slim Sculpt treatment to burn the free fatty acids that have been released. This will also stimulate the lymphatic system remove other released fatty acids and glycerol.
Where can Slim Sculpt be used?
Slim Sculpt LED treatments are completely non-invasive. They can deliver effective body contouring on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, back, arms, and under the chin.
