RATIONALE

Red light has already been shown to affect fat.

Researchers tested whether direct EMF application to fat enhanced liposuction results.

HYPOTHESIS

Applying 635 nm (red) light at 14 mV directly to fat during liposuction will allow surgeons to remove more fat.

STUDY SUMMARY

Surgeons successfully melted fat using 635 nm red light at 14 mV on 700 liposuction patients.

METHOD

Surgeons irradiated fat during liposection.

RESULTS

“Excellent aesthetic results, including an improved silhouette contour, smooth abdominal surface, and good skin retraction, were obtained in 95% of cases. Postoperative recovery was rapid, and complications were minimal.”

CONCLUSION

Red light at 635 nm applied directly to fat enhances liposuction results.

EMF CHANNEL COMMENTARY

The study did not give us the irradiance value, which is unfortunate.

We do know that the fat melted using red light at 635 nm.

The power was 14 mV (millivolts).

Doctors had to expose the fat in surgery. This was not done through the skin.
