Nushape's premier device is the patented Nushape Lipo Wrap. A remarkably effective lipo-alternative technology employing FDA-approved red light therapy for releasing toxins and reducing the size of fat cells. Engineered to be used as a “hands off” system, Nushape Light Therapy doesn’t require the oversight of a licensed medical professional but is rather employed via a wearable, battery operated, portable belt that can be used anywhere - bringing this cutting edge technology out of the medspa and into the living room, bed, home gym, car - you name it.
Nushape has since expanded beyond red light therapy for fat loss with additional programs for skin rejuvenation, pain relief and healing.
HOW RED LIGHT THERAPY WORKS :
Red Light Therapy has been used in North America for over 40 years, but only recently has the technology advanced to provide for fat reduction, weight management, tightening and rejuvenating skin.
Red light therapy research at Mayo Clinic, NASA, and other leading research organizations have proven the safety and efficacy of red light therapy. Nushape builds on the research of Rodrigo Neira, M.D. and Clara Ortiz-Neira, M.D. who, in 2001 demonstrated that an 8mW 635nm laser that was held 6 to 8 inches from the skin could emulsify deep fat (6cm) and break up the appearance of scar tissue.
Red light therapy for weight loss and body contouring removes fat and reduces inches without invasive surgery, needles, incisions, or downtime. These technologies are all based on modulating a specific type of red light. The modulated red light tricks the mitochondria in the nucleus of the fat cell into creating a transitory pore in the cell membrane, allowing the fatty acids and triglycerides to escape into the interstitial space. The liberated fat cell contents then drain by way of the lymphatic system and are processed by the liver as part of the body’s normal course of detoxification. The pore in the fat cell closes in about 48-72 hours and the liberated contents will be expelled in the patient’s stool and urine over the next few days.
Completely non-invasive, this red light technology has never shown any recorded side effects and patients do not experience any discomfort during the treatments. The red light drains and shrinks the fat cells while also tightening and smoothing the skin, adding new collagen and elastin.
Nushape also has modes to encourage cellular repair for skin and healing for pain relief and inflammation. LED light therapy delivers light energy to tissues and cells in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body's natural process to build new proteins and regenerate cells relieve arthritic, muscle and joint pain, reduce inflammation and stiffness and increase blood circulation, healing time, and can even combat mood disorders and improve cognitive function.
