Q. Is invisa-RED™ safe?
- Yes: invisa-RED™ laser light energy is part of the range of electromagnetic rays that are absolutely necessary for metabolism and growth of human beings and is also part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight minus the skin damaging UV rays, which is why NASA currently uses this type of energy in space. It is also vibration energy, with which the human body resonates. This is the reason that it can penetrate through the skin.
I don’t know much about invisa-RED™, can you explain it to me?
- Sunlight is a combination of visible, UV and infrared light. Infra-red light is longer in wavelength than visible light and starts just after the visible color of red. Infra-red laser light is the safest and healthiest spectrum of sunlight and accounts for 70% of the heating of the Earth, the rest being caused by visible light. It is therefore understood that a coherent combination of visible light and infra-red laser light offers the most benefits in electromagnetic heating of objects that absorb infrared such as the human body. Other forms of heat such as fire and ceramic heaters, etc, warm a person by heating the surrounding air that touches the person which does not penetrate deeply into the body. Infra-red laser light heat penetrates the skin and is much more effective. Certain infra-red laser light wavelengths also interact with living cells increasing metabolism, energy production, and causing more fuel (calories) to be burned.
What are the benefits of invisa-RED™?
- invisa-RED™ produces a combination of near-infrared and infrared light energy (680nm-980nm) The human cells have light sensitive chemicals called chromophores which react to light in this range. When stimulated by energy in this range, the cells produce more ATP which is the energy source that powers every muscle and increases metabolism. Red laser light also causes DNA synthesis in the fibroblasts of the cells which stimulates collagen production which makes the skin more elastic and younger looking. In addition, infrared light increases the production of cytochrome c oxidase enhancing the metabolism and the removal of toxins from the body.
✓ Increases blood capillary circulation and vascular activity by promoting improvement in the metabolism of nitric oxide (NO). This facilitates improved regulation of vasodilatation and leads to the formation of new capillaries – This in turn provides additional oxygen and nutrients to accelerate natural tissue healing processes and eventually evokes a cascade of beneficial biochemical processes.
✓ Stimulates synthesis of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP)—an immediate energy source for muscle contraction and essential in the metabolism of all cellular processes and sustaining living systems.
✓ Relaxes muscles, reduces nerve excitability and stimulates nerve transmission
✓ Reduces scar tissue and stimulates wound healing
✓ Increases lymphatic system activity and relieves edema and discomfort associated with swelling
✓ Stimulates production of collagen—the most important component of wound healing
✓ Increases RNA/DNA synthesis – this stimulates cellular reproduction and facilitates accelerated replacement of damaged cells
✓ Increases production of endorphins and enkephelins from the brain – promoting mood elevation
✓ Stimulates production of adrenals— which facilitate long term resilience to stress
✓ Reduces inflammation and swelling in chronic conditions of arthritis, bursitis, and tendonitis
✓ Stimulates fibroblastic activity – promoting repair of connective tissue and formation of collagen fibers
How long has this technology been around?
- With extreme popularity in the Beauty Capital of the World South America, invisa-RED™ is now at the forefront of cutting-edge technology for non-invasive weight loss and aesthetics procedures in the U.S as of 2014.
How is invisa-RED™ different from other body slimming technologies?
- Other body slimming devices are only able to accomplish temporary inch loss through skin tightening in the area of treatment. invisa-RED™ is the only clinically proven device for weight reduction, fat reduction and inch loss. invisa-RED™ Machines have the ability to adjust power output, pulse, and delay settings to maximize each individual patient, case by case. Patient results are both rapid and concrete. Our technology not only provides true weight loss but also skin tightening, cellulite removal, spot specific contouring, and stretch-mark fading. By combining technology and practical application within our own facilities we have been able to provide what others can only claim.
