What is Contour Light Therapy?
Non-invasive, LED-based light therapy is currently the highest in-demand treatment being sought by patients of today simply because of the healthy nature of the outcomes. Unlike ultrasound, radio frequency, laser light and freezing, LED-based therapies do not cause cellular damage.
Quite the opposite, LED light has been shown to promote a natural response within cells based on the wavelength of the light energy used and the type of cell it reaches. Both mid-600nm (including 635nm) and infrared (including 880nm) wavelengths have been used in a wide range of therapies that promote some form of healing response.
What type of results can be expected?
The recommended Contour Light treatment protocol involves 10 treatments in a series, delivered every other day or every 3 days. Patients typically see a noticeable improvement within the first 2 or 3 treatments, many as early as the 1st treatment.
The full series of 10 treatments should address most patient expectations, but some patients may want to continue with additional treatments.
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 exercise program that promotes weight control, their results can be long term.
Can anyone be treated?
A Contour Light treatment is safe and effective for anyone who does not have a medical condition that reduces their ability to eliminate waste via the liver and kidneys.
What does a Contour Light treatment feel like?
The patient will lie on a treatment bed and the pads are placed over the area to be treated. The system will be turned on and the patient will feel a slight warming sensation, but no pain or discomfort. Most patients can read or use their phone/portable device, some will even take a short nap.
What areas of the body can be treated?
The Contour Light can be used on any part of the body; hips, waist, thighs, back, upper arms and neck.
Is the Contour Light device safe?
Yes. The light emitted by the Contour Light does not generate excessive heat and will not cause a burn. The light is very bright and should not be looked at directly for an extended period of time, but is much safer than a laser device that can damage eyes with even a slight glance into the beam.
