Red light cellulite/ fat reduction

According to American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, one of the newest technologies to be FDA approved for non-surgical cellulite/ fat reduction uses red light therapy or Infrared Therapy to reduce the volume of subcutaneous fat cells. Instead of removing or destroying fat cells, photonic lypo-lysis, or “red light therapy,” delivers specific wavelengths of light through the skin using a specialized lamp. This light triggers selected fat cells to create small openings and release some of their contents, thus helping them shrink in size.
