Slimming light therapy

Non-invaisive body contour treatment with red LED lightI recently tried Core Contour, one of the newest body contouring treatments at Exhale MindBody Spas. It uses Lipo-Light, or red LED lights, to help slim and contour the body’s trouble spots. The Lipo-Light creators explain the treatment this way: “When energy is required by the body, the brain sends signals to the adipose cells to break down the stored fat, a process called lypolysis. During this process, free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body.”

My therapist at Atlanta Exhale Mindbody Spa, Utamu, attached LED lights to my hips and abdomen. The light red LED lights are flat and held in place by a belt. She then gave me a light lymphatic drainage massage to help the process. The lights were warm and felt great — so did the massage.
Utamo explained that to see results, you need to exercise within six hours. This is a great treatment for women who work out on a regular basis, but it is not a substitute for liposuction, and results are subtle. LED light therapies are very popular Europe for beauty and health.
The treatment takes 45 minutes.
