The science of red lights

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 UltraSlim, 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 photochemical mechanism:

Red Light Therapy

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.

With their UltraSlim invention (patent pending), Advanced Photonic Systems delivers greater photonic energy and fat reduction than Zerona or other competing products. UltraSlim uses 144 modulated high-power light-emitting diodes rather than 5 low-power laser-emitting diodes.

Zerona

We started with Zerona just after it was approved by the FDA in 2010 and we soon became the largest Zerona provider in Florida. We achieved great results for thousands of patients and procedures, however, a substantial number of patients required re-treatments in order to achieve the guaranteed loss of inches. And some patients received a refund because they did not lose 3", even with 12 or more Zerona treatment sessions. Simply put, the Zerona's five 7.5 mW laser-emitting diodes are mild compared to more recent technological advances.

Lipo-Light: We looked for better technologies and in 2011 found a company in the United Kingdom that was offering a Lipo-Light system with 200 light-emitting diodes (12.5mW each) placed against the skin. The device offered immediate losses during a treatment session and did a better job smoothing cellulite. Unfortunately, the shortcomings of the Lipo-Light outweigh the benefits.  The treatments take about 30 minutes per area -- and an area is very small. Like the i-Lipo, Lipo-Light uses paddles that touch the skin. The paddles leave marks where the body was treated and there are hygiene issues with the paddles and Velcro straps shared by the patients.

Then, in 2012 we introduced the UltraSlim -- which guarantees 2" of fat loss in just one hour. Why spend weeks on Zerona? UltraSlim was developed by a NASA veteran and a Zerona expert.

Given a choice, our patients preferred UltraSlim. Zerona, i-Lipo, and Lipo-Light are simply no longer competitive with state-of-the-art red light therapies, and we have discontinued using those technologies.

UltraSlim

Only UltraSlim can guarantee that customers will lose at least two inches in just 32 minutes. No other technology comes close!

Unlike other technologies, UltraSlim does not touch the body, but covers an area 23" by 17". 

A video comparing UltraSlim, Zerona, and Lipo-Light is on the Gallery page.  As you will see, UltraSlim 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.

Shown below are first visit inch loss data for 80 randomly selected patients from the thousands treated over the past two years at seven central Florida locations:

  Subjects Average Inch Loss Minimum Inch Loss Maximum Inch Loss Lost
At Least 3"
Lost
At Least 2"
Females 68 3 4/8 1 1/8 6 1/8 46 68% 67 99%
Males 12 3    1 4/8 5    7 58% 11 92%
    Total 80 3 3/8 1 1/8 6 1/8 53 66% 78 98%

As shown above, 67 of the 68 ladies lost at least 2" (99%) and 68% lost at least 3" at their first visit.  Losses ranged from 1 1/8" to 6 1/8", with an average of 3.5".  Men lost an average of 3", with 11 of 12 (92%) losing more at least 2".  Losses ranged from 1.5" to 5.0" -- at the very first visit.  Click here for a full-copy of the report.

By comparison, in a study by Erchonia, manufacturer of Zerona, 35 randomly selected patients lost an average of 3.5" with seven office visits over three weeks.  Using the same measurements and forms, patients lost as much in 32 minutes at one visit with UltraSlim as they did with three weeks of 40-minute Zerona visits. 

Lipo-Light Mask

Fine lines and wrinkles result through the lack of collagen and elastin in the skin. LED light penetrates into the dermis layer of the skin, energizing the cells, thereby helping to create collagen and elastin, much the same as when you were younger. Collagen helps to plump up the skin, while elastin helps to firm the skin thus diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. It’s that simple!

Photo Rejuvenation or Light Therapy is the use of light to create an anti-aging effect on the skin and is quickly becoming recognized as one of the safest, fastest and most affordable ways to achieve younger, more vibrant looking skin.

It's non-invasive, requires no surgery, no harsh chemicals, no lasers, there is no downtime or recovery time, it’s safe for all skin types, and most importantly IT WORKS! It is today's natural skin care at its finest.
This process is also universally known as the 'no knife face-lift'.
