When energy is required by the body, the brain sends signals to the adipose cells to break down the stored fat; a process called lypolysis. During this process, free fatty acids are released into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body. Chromophores are part of a molecule which can absorb certain wavelengths of visible light. Specific wavelengths of light cause fat cell membranes to lose their round shape by changing the permeability of the cell. This light creates photobiomodulation within the adipose cells signaling a change inside each adipose cell, creating pores or channels in the cell wall. This alteration of the cell triggers the release of an enzyme (lipase) which can break the triglyceride molecules down into fatty acids and glycerol molecules which are now small enough to pass through the pores of the cell wall releasing stored fat. After a 20 minute treatment, with exercise, the essential demand for energy is created, which can now be met by the released fatty acids and glycerol from the adipose cells, completing the inch loss process.
