LOOSE SKIN

If you’ve been on plan for a while now and have lost about 20+ pounds, you’ve probably enjoyed your clothes becoming looser, but you might not appreciate that your skin is looser as well. Because the program is so effective in quickly helping you lose weight, sometimes your skin cannot always keep up.

Generally, it takes six months to a year for skin to bounce back after weight loss has stopped. If you’re younger, it might return to its original state, but if you’re older, it might bounce back some, but not all the way.

One great way to help the skin tighten and to keep up with weight loss is adding a collagen supplement or using ShiftSetGo products, like the Cherry Gelatin, which contains collagen.

To help with loose skin and help with stubborn fat areas that are just resistant to weight loss, try Red Light Therapy! The treatment is safe, fast, natural, and non-invasive. It does not cause any bruising or scarring. Clients see a reduction of inches in their very first session, but to achieve the best results may require multiple sessions over a few weeks.

How does Red Light Therapy (RLT) work?
Red and near infrared light technology at 635nm and 880nm frequency are used to effectively drain fat cells of their contents, and reduce overall body circumference of treated regions. It can be effectively used on every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. This includes the waist, hips, upper legs, thighs, and upper arms. Clients undergoing RLT have noticed an improvement with cellulite as well as skin tone and texture. These sessions pair beautifully with the ShiftSetGo weight loss program.

In addition to fat cell reduction, the RLT sessions are clinically proven to help with wound healing, reduce pain and inflammation, increase collagen production, and even help with hair loss!

Did you know?

As fat disappears, ideally the skin reconstructs itself, adapting to become tighter. Collagen is a key to this process. Some of our Shift meals, such as the Gelatin can be especially helpful because of their collagen content.
