Paper Abstract

Photobiomodulation using light from red and near infrared LEDs or Lasers have been reported effective as noninvasive methods for fat loss. A total of 55 subjects were randomly divided into test groups and control groups for abdominal fat reduction clinical trial using red and near infrared LED phototherapy devices. Red and near infrared light with irradiance of 10 mW/cm2 were irradiated over the abdominal area to the test group for 30 minutes at 3 times a week followed by 3 times of 30 minutes of aerobic exercise a week for 4 weeks. Control group used sham devices for 30 minutes 3 times a week and followed by 3 times of 30 minutes of aerobic exercise a week for 4 weeks. It was shown that red and near infrared LED phototherapy combined with aerobic exercise was effective and safe for abdominal fat loss without any side effects.
