It’s simple. You lay on the table and expose the area you want treated. The red light penetrates the skin and activates the fat cells to open up temporary channels in which the content of the fat cell can be released. Then, your lymphatics, which is part of your blood circulation, picks up the fat content, takes it to the liver to be processed and then, the body voids it through your natural process (urination and through the GI tract). So, no down time and no pain. And, a huge add-on bonus is that not only does the light target the fat cells, it also targets the skin to produce more elastin and collagen, so it tones and tightens the skin as you lose fat, so you’re not left with loose and saggy skin as if you were to lose a lot of fat on your own through diet and exercise.
