Weight loss and body shaping with the help of red light

Losing weight and body shaping using red light is already supported by several clinical studies and appears to be a good helper to achieve it. Let’s go through this topic and find out how light therapy could help you look better and improve your health.

It’s worth mentioning at the outset that you won’t lose weight just by being exposed to therapeutic light. It is a complex process that also includes quality sleep, sufficient hydration and support for the proper functioning of the circadian cycle.

The light itself is good to apply immediately after waking up in the morning, at a reduced intensity, so the appetite becomes restricted (1), which perfectly starts the effort to reduce weight. It is also advisable to exercise a little with this morning therapy to further promote weight reduction and start the body for the upcoming day.



A sufficient level of vitamin D in the body (2,3), which is found in fish and seafood, mushrooms, egg yolks, or for example lard, helps to reduce obesity and its fall into it. We cover this topic more in our Instagram post here: Sources of Vitamin D (CZ)

Before sleep, which should last 7-8 hours, it is advisable to use light therapy with reduced intensity to relax, unwind and support the circadian cycle. However, watch out for blue light, for example from a mobile phone or monitor. This blue light blocks falling asleep and impairs sleep quality.

In general, it can be said that the main factor for weight reduction is a healthy and active lifestyle, which is supported by red light therapy to achieve a more effective and faster result. Red light also helps to smooth out wrinkles, activates the anti-aging effect, acts on the skin by promoting collagen production, thereby achieving a better looking and feeling quality and healthier skin, including support for shaping the figure when using exercise therapy (4,5).
