How It Works
In 1998, a Columbian physician discovered that exposing a patient to a mid-600nm red light prior to liposuction surgery caused the subcutaneous fat to be much easier to remove. Additional testing was conducted and the results were astounding; the mitochondria within the fat cells became stimulated by exposure to 635nm light, causing them to create “transient pores” in the cell membrane. These transient pores allow the contents of the cell to escape and be released into the interstitial area of the body, resulting in a shrinking of the fat cell. The contents, triglycerides (water, glycerol and fatty acids), then enter the lymphatic system and are transported to the liver.
The studies indicated that, as the triglycerides are carried away by the lymphatic system, the volume of the treated area contracts, resulting in a reduction of the circumference of the patient’s body.
In patients that are maintaining a healthy diet, exercise regularly and drink plenty of water, the results can be dramatic and measurable with just one treatment.
Because the Contour Light device delivers up to 100 times the light energy of competing systems, the fat cells are bathed in the highest level of 635nm energy, providing the deepest and most complete exposure to the light. The treatment is painless; there is no heat or discomfort involved and no risk to either the patient or the operator. Completely safe. Totally effective.
AND MORE RECENTLY.....a second light frequency has been discovered to assist the the 635nm energy to GO DEEPER.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does a Contour Body Red Light treatment feel like?
The patient will lie on a comfortable extra padded treatment bed and the specific sized , flexible pads are placed over the area that you want us to focus on to be treated. The system will be turned on and the patient will feel a slight warming sensation, but no pain or discomfort. We have music playing or you can watch TV. Most patients can read or use their phone/portable device, while some will even take a short nap.
How long will the results last?
Results will vary from patient to patient, primarily due to the commitment by the patient to their goals. If a patient maintains a healthy lifestyle of a diet and/or exercise program that promotes weight control, their results can be long term.
Do patients need to follow a strict diet and exercise regimen?
The protocol associated with the Contour Body Red Light system involves simple to follow directions, but does not require a strict diet or strenuous exercise. As with any type of weight modifying program, diet and exercise will have an effect on the results, specifically if a person does not make an attempt to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A specific supplement, a small amount of exercise and a recommended level of water consumption will help with lymphatic stimulation to optimize results. The Contour Body Red Light protocol can help to motivate a person and jump-start a person’s determination to improve their appearance, making it much easier to attain their goal of a sleeker and sexier profile.
