What Is Red Light Therapy?
NOW OFFERING BODY CONTOURING WITHOUT SURGERY
Delivering the highest amount of energy for optimal efficacy, the Contour Light system incorporates a proprietary reflective coating that assists in the retention of light within the tissue. Providing measurable results without surgery or pain, the Contour Light can help in attaining results for all types of individuals seeking to achieve a more sleek and slim profile.
The Contour Light System is based on a technology that was initially researched by NASA to maintain the health of astronauts while in space and was discovered to be effective for circumferential reduction (inch loss) by a Columbian surgeon.
The surgeon found that by exposing his patients to mid-600nm light prior to a liposuction procedure, the fat was much easier to extract without heat or discomfort. Subsequent testing indicated the light energy caused a photobiostimulation of the fat cell mitochondria, starting a chain reaction that opens transient pores in the cell membrane and releasing the cell contents into the interstitial region of the body. Under a microscope, it was observed that the cells appeared to deflate and transform from a “grape to a raisin”. This action results in a reduction of the circumference of the treated area of a patient’s body.
Results can be achieved with exposure to the light alone, and when a Contour Light treatment is coupled with a protocol of diet and exercise, it acts as an accelerant to a weight loss program to deliver the best possible outcomes. Patients find it is much easier to lose weight, to drop multiple dress/pants sizes and improve the appearance of their body and skin in general.
As an additional benefit, the Contour Light System is also FDA cleared for the temporary relief of arthritic, joint and muscle pain, including the temporary increase of local blood circulation. Overall, the Contour Light treatment provides a relaxing and comfortable experience for patients seeking an improvement in their health, well-being and appearance.
