Few things are more frustrating and disheartening than spending weeks and months dieting and exercising, only to find you’ve got excess weight that just won’t budge. Year after year, you make a resolution to shed that excess jiggly fat, but here it is, a new year, and you’re still struggling.

The good news is, at Leading Edge Medical, we can help you get rid of stubborn areas of fat without endless (and fruitless) dieting and exercise and without surgery. We use Invisi-Red®, a state-of-the-art fat reduction system that uses infrared energy to help you get rid of fat for good, without incisions, anesthesia or downtime. Here’s how it works.

How Invisi-Red works

Unlike liposuction, which uses incisions and suction devices to “vacuum out” fat, Invisi-Red gets rid of unwanted fat by breaking up fat cells, destroying the cells and releasing the fatty debris and toxins they contain. It does this through the precise release of infrared heat that gently warms up cells until the cell walls break down. Over the course of the next ferw weeks, your body’s lymph system carries away the fat and cellular debris, revealing slimmer, sleeker contours.

Yes, there are other noninvasive fat treatments out there, including options that use intense, focused laser energy to break up fat cells. But Invisi-Red is different in some key ways. While other laser techniques use a single wavelength to break up fat cells, Invisi-Red uses multiple extended wavelengths to achieve better short-term and long-term results. The energy emitted by the Invisi-Red device does break apart fat cells so they’re gone for good, and in that way, the treatments are similar. But the infrared energy that’s absorbed during an Invisi-Red treatment also helps in other ways.

First, Invisi-Red promotes better circulation in the area, improving blood flow and stimulating natural collagen for better tissue healing. Those responses can help tone and firm the skin in the area for even smoother results after your treatment.

And second, the infrared energy works to help ramp up your metabolism for greater fat-burning potential. Specifically, the infrared energy that’s absorbed during an Invisi-Red treatment stimulates the production of a chemical called ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which plays an essential role in cell metabolism and energy production. That means your treatment isn’t just eliminating fat cells now; it’s also improving your body’s ability to burn off fat to help you lose more weight over time. This last difference is a big one between Invsi-Red and similar noninvasive treatments. While those “other” treatments say they help you lose inches, the improved metabolic effects of Invisi-Red can actually help you lose pounds as well.

Invisi-Red treatment: What to expect

Invisi-Red treatment is quick and comfortable. During your treatment session, you’ll relax and recline on a padded exam table. The doctor passes the handheld Invisi-Red device over the treatment area, gently gliding the device over your skin. The treatment itself is warming, and most patients find it very relaxing. Sessions take less than a half hour, and once your session is done, you’ll be free to go home. Within just a few minutes of your session, your lymph system will start flushing out the cellular debris and toxins.

Depending upon the results you’re looking for, you may need more than one treatment session to achieve your goals. Each session will be timed to allow your body to get rid of the debris between treatments so your progress can be accurately assessed. One of the benefits of Invisi-Red is that your treatment can be customized specifically for your needs so you can feel confident in your results right from the start.
