Science and Methodology
Red Light Therapy has been used in the United States for over 40 years, but only recently has the technology advanced to provide for fat reduction as well as tightening and rejuvenating the skin. Red light therapy has been used in hospital burn units, as part of “smart” liposuction, and in non-narcotic pain relief.
Red light therapy research at Mayo Clinic, NASA, and other leading research organizations have proven the safety and efficacy of red light therapy. With their invention U-Slim Therapy, Advanced Photonic Systems, LLC has built on the research of Rodrigo Neira, M.D. and Clara Ortiz-Neira, M.D. who, in 2001 demonstrated that an 8mW 635nm laser that was held 6 to 8 inches from the skin could emulsify deep fat (6cm) and break up the appearance of scar tissue.
Red light technologies remove fat and reduce inches without invasive surgery. There are no needles, no incisions, and no recovery time. These technologies are all based on modulating a specific type of red light. The modulated red light tricks the mitochondria in the nucleus of the fat cell into creating a transitory pore in the cell membrane, allowing the fatty acids and triglycerides to escape into the interstitial space.
The liberated fat cell contents is then drained by the lymphatic system and processed by the liver as part of the body’s normal course of detoxification. The pore in the fat cell will close in about 48-72 hours and the liberated contents will be expelled in the patient’s stool over the next few days.
Because red light therapy operates at the cellular level, it does not generate heat as part of its action mechanism, but is instead an extremely complex, cascading photo-chemical mechanism.
Completely non-invasive, this red light technology has never shown any recorded side effects and patients do not experience any discomfort during the treatments. The modulated red light drains and shrinks the fat cells while also tightening and smoothing the skin, adding new collagen and elastin.
The U-Slim Therapy invention from Advanced Photonic Systems delivers greater photonic energy and fat reduction than Zerona or other competing products. U-Slim Therapy uses 144 modulated high-power light-emitting diodes rather than 5 low-power laser-emitting diodes.
Only U-Slim Therapy can guarantee that customers will lose at least two inches in just 32 minutes. No other technology comes close!
Unlike other technologies, U-Slim Therapy does not touch the body, but covers an area 23″ by 17″.
A video comparing U-Slim Therapy, Zerona, and Lipo-Light is shown below. As you will see, U-Slim Therapy is faster, more effective, covers a larger area, covers that area more uniformly, and does not touch the skin. And since it does not use lasers, it is safer and the regulatory requirements are significantly different.
