Weight Loss Therapy Q&A

What is weight loss therapy?

At Park Cities ChiroSport, Dr. Petersen and his professional team offer various approaches to weight loss:


invisa-RED is an FDA-approved device that’s clinically proven to produce weight loss and fat reduction without surgery. The procedure uses a combination of infrared and near-infrared light energy to destroy fat cells and release collagen and elastin, which tightens the skin. 


OPTAVIA is a weight loss program that involves clinically proven plans, scientifically developed products, and real-time encouragement from a supportive community. Your personal weight loss coach guides you toward developing healthy habits that lead to lifelong transformation.

Who is a good candidate for weight loss therapy?

Adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes eating nutritious foods and exercising for at least 30 minutes most days supports healthy weight loss.

If you’ve tried losing weight without success, weight loss therapy at Park Cities ChiroSport may be right for you. Dr. Petersen discusses your particular concerns and goals for weight loss and recommends the best approach for your needs.

How does invisa-RED produce weight loss?

The invisa-RED device sends laser energy through your skin, where specific wavelengths target fat cells below the skin’s surface. 

Precise wavelengths of light energy break down cellular membranes, releasing intra-cellular fat, water, and toxins. Your body uses the stored fat energy and excretes the remaining water and toxins through its natural waste removal process.

invisa-RED also triggers an increase in collagen and elastin production in the treatment area so your skin tightens as you lose fat.

What should I expect from an invisa-RED treatment?

invisa-RED is a noninvasive treatment that doesn’t require downtime for recovery. You can relax during the session and return to normal activities right away.

The number of treatments you need depends on your weight loss and aesthetic goals. Most people get 2-3 treatments per week until they achieve their desired weight.

Individual results may vary, but clinical trials showed an average of 4.5 pounds of weight loss over the course of nine invisa-RED treatments without the assistance of diet or exercise.
