HOW IT WORKS
Low levels of laser energy supercharge your body's natural metabolism and stimulate the fat cells to open and release intra-cellular fat, water, and toxins. The lymphatic system then transports the fat, to be utilized as energy, through the body's natural metabolic functions and synthesis of ATP, (adenosine triphosphate). Once the contents of the fat cells, (triglycerides, water, glycerol), are released, the cell becomes smaller. Toxins are removed via urine and sweat
It is a non-invasive laser therapy that emits red light and eliminates fat, boosts metabolism, and tightens your skin. Invisa-RED is different than other body contouring treatments because it operates using near-infrared and infrared laser light energy.
Added Metabolic Boost
Non-Invasive Weight Loss
Targeting Fat Areas
In the weight loss industry - where one size fits all concepts are typical - we've opened the door to a new way of thinking and a LIFETIME of results. We have taken a truly individualized approach by combining multiple successful components into a REAL long-term solution. After helping hundreds and hundreds of people since 2015 with our DNA-Based weight loss program (see “Success Stories here on our website), we added this amazing supplemental piece of technology to our toolbox in early 2022. This type of technology for weight loss has been utilized since the early '90s as a safe, non-invasive, painless, and effective way to accelerate weight loss; remove unwanted fat from undesirable or unresponsive areas, tighten and rejuvenate skin, fade stretch marks and scarring, and smooth cellulite from all regions of the body
Do you have target areas of fat that stick around and seem resistant to diet and exercise? Maybe it's one of these:
Mommy Tummy (“pooch”)
Back of arms
Neck (“Turkey Gobbler” Neck)
These may be a perfect reason to learn more and make use of our non-invasive, painless Invisa-RED technology.
Lose inches and achieve lasting weight loss without having to worry about pain, incisions, or downtime.
Non-invasive body contouring systems use two general approaches: heating or cooling of fat cells. Invisa-RED uses warming action (it's more comfy!). But unlike other systems that use either radiofrequency OR lasers, Invisa-RED uses a COMBINATION. Most body sculpting systems that use light energy to warm fat cells use a single wavelength of light for that job. It works fine in that role, removing adipose tissue for body sculpting purposes. In fact, part of the Invisa-RED system uses exactly this principle. Where other systems stop, though, Invisa-RED goes beyond. The extended wavelengths provide other active benefits beyond emulsifying fat. The combination also stimulates the production of adenosine triphosphate ATP), a natural chemical that's essential to your body's metabolism. In addition, support and connective tissue, such as collagen, are stimulated by the wide-spectrum red light of Invisa-RED. This helps with the tightening of skin.
What's the process?
As the patient, you need to know it's comfortable and easy. Just lie down and relax! We will place “paddles” on the target area(s) and they will emit the light as you relax for your 15 minute session. The unit uses a combination of infrared light and laser. These penetrate to different layers of the body - including the adipose (fat) layer - and heat it. Once the temperature of the adipose tissue is sufficiently altered the fat cells are stimulated to open and release intra-cellular fat, water, and toxins. The body starts the process of disposing these by flushing them through the lymphatic system. To stimulate this important action, we also include 10 minutes on our whole body vibration platform each session.
Benefits of the Whole-Body Vibration (WBV) Power Plate
Power Plate WBV provides many proven health benefits. As it relates to how we use it, these include:
Increased blood flow
Stimulate lymphatic system
Decrease in cortisol levels
Stimulate Lymphatic System:
As muscles repeatedly contract and relax, the blood circulation in your body increases. Increased blood flow makes sure that your muscles are oxygenated, which speeds up the recovery process and rejuvenates the body. Improvement in blood circulation also leads to faster metabolic waste removal. WBV therapy stimulates the lymphatic system causing an immune response in the lymph nodes and giving the body better defenses against illnesses. WBV also causes the lymph system to drain more efficiently, getting trapped fats and toxins on their way out of the body through the natural filters of the circulatory system.
Boost Metabolism Through Rapid Muscles Contraction:
As you stand (always with knees at least slightly bent!) on the vibration plate, your muscles contract and relax 30+ times each second. As your body works to regain stability, multiple muscle fibers become engaged.
Another article shared that when the platform of a vibration machine shakes, your muscles reflexively contract rapidly. Even though this isn't under your conscious control, it still requires energy and causes you to burn calories. Machines called electromyographs (EMG), which measure electrical activity in your muscles, have confirmed that vibration machines cause an increase in muscular activity.

Lower Cortisol Levels:
Cortisol is a stress hormone released by the adrenal glands. While cortisol is important for helping your body deal with stressful situations, when cortisol levels are too high for too long, this hormone can hurt you more than it helps. When cortisol levels remain high over an extended time, they can cause weight gain and high blood pressure, disrupt sleep, negatively impact mood, reduce your energy levels, and contribute to diabetes.
Lower Blood Pressure:
WBV has been demonstrated to reduce hardening of the arteries in study after study, among populations ranging from men in their mid-twenties to postmenopausal women. In each study, the subjects' blood pressure was lowered significantly.
How many treatments will you need?
Of course, this varies client to client. Several factors determine this including the number of pounds or inches desired to be lost. Also, it depends on whether or not a client is combining the Invisa-RED treatments with our Lifetime DNA-Based weight loss program. Typically, we advise our clients begin with about 12 treatments, spaced out 2-3 times per week. This allows a good process to take place and enables people to observe its effectiveness for their body. Then, if you need to lose more weight/inches, you can continue treatments until your goal is reached.
Each individual has a different objective, so we suggest you schedule a consultation with Dr. Johannsen to assess the best approach and/or number of sessions needed to reach your weight-loss goals. Once you've reached your goals, you can still benefit from Invisa-RED treatments from time to time to help maintain your results.
Is there any pain or downtime after treatments?
No. Treatments are non-surgical, non-evasive, and pleasant. Clients will listen to music, use Facebook, text, or take a nap during treatments. Our professional staff is here to ensure each session is relaxing and comfortable for you.
Areas that can be treated
Except for the face, any area of the body that is non-responsive to diet and exercise can be reduced and contoured effectively. The most common areas are the stomach, waist, back, arms, legs, hips, thighs, buttocks, chin, and neck.
