The SkinnyLight is the highest-output photonic device on the market, configurable for multiple wavelengths of light to suit specific clinical applications.
What is Red Light Therapy?
Red Light Therapy is a technology that has both cosmetic and healing effects. The word “healing” is defined as “the natural process by which the body repairs itself.” That is exactly what happens when the body is exposed to Red Light Therapy. We use a proprietary Red Light Therapy system called the “SkinnyLight.”
Where did Red Light technology come from?
NASA first developed this technology to grow plants in space, then later to treat wounds in space. Today, Red Light Therapy is being used throughout the medical field to heal patients and is used in salons around the world to rejuvenate the skin. NASA’s ongoing research on Red Light Therapy is now focused on helping cancer patients. This technology does not harm, and there are no known side effects. Red Light Therapy is safe and pain-free, and in fact, patients describe feeling good after a session.
Is Red Light Therapy a safe method for fat loss?
Red Light in wavelengths between 630-660nm (nanometers) can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin – energizing the fibroblast cells that produce collagen and elastin. This is how the skin repairs damage and rejuvenates its overall appearance. The visible benefits from Red Light Therapy – such as reduced wrinkles and firmer skin – may seem like just a cosmetic enhancement, but they are the result of the body healing itself. Red Light Therapy can target and treat the entire face and body. While the Red Light table may look like a tanning bed, Red Light Therapy is not dangerous because it produces a wavelength far outside of the UV range.
Red Light is often referred to as near-infrared light. Why? Because as demonstrated in a visible light chart, light between 600-750nm is near or close to infrared light. The increased strength of the SkinnyLight Red Light Therapy system allows for body contouring benefits as well.
SkinnyLight stimulates non-invasive permanent fat removal by temporarily opening the fat cells and draining the contents using the body’s natural process of lipolysis. There is no damage to tissue, no pain, no downtime, and no other negative outcomes. Since no cells are removed or destroyed, subsequent weight gain can be normally distributed throughout the body’s fat cells.
Meet the Doctor
Dr Gessler is local resident from the south hills of Pittsburgh, PA. He grew up in Venetia, and attended Peters Township High School. After graduation, he attended Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, PA, pursuing a degree in English literature and a minor in psychology. Upon graduation, he attended California University of Pennsylvania to finish up his pre med classes with the intent of becoming a ophthalmologist. After completing an internship at Mercy hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, he was accepted into an osteopathic program in Erie.
The summer before he left for school, he suffered from a severe ankle injury resulting in a brace and physical therapy. After completing the therapy walking was still difficult. He then sought out treatment from a chiropractor. After having the ankle adjusted, the pain was gone.
Dr Gessler then declined his acceptance to osteopathic school and applied to Palmer College of Chiropractic to pursue a career as a chiropractor.
Dr Gessler graduated cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2008. He joined another practice after graduation where he practiced for 7 years. He then decided to leave the practice and open his own practice in the south hills of Pittsburgh in November of 2015.
Dr Gessler utilizes a variety of adjusting techniques including: diversified, gonsted and activator. He also utilizes techniques like stretching and muscle retraining to benefit the adjustments. He also practiced applied kinesiology (AK) and nueroemotional technique (NET) to better serve his patients.
