Introducing The Contour Light
- Contour Light uses LED light to help naturally slim, shape, and tone areas including the waist, hips, thighs, and upper arms.
- The Contour Light emits far more light energy than any other similar device.
- The heat and unique wavelength of the light stimulates fat cells to release energy. That energy is then easily metabolized back into the body.
- The process is similar to when your body enters the “fat burning” stage of a good cardiovascular workout.
- The Contour Light also increases collagen and elastin in the skin while creating a slimmer appearance.
- Contour Light is completely safe, painless, and noninvasive.

How does the Contour Light Work?
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. 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 healthy responses from the body.
The Contour Light delivers both mid-600nm and infrared light via high-powered surface mount LEDs that are imbedded in a soft and flexible pad. The pads can be easily applied to any area of the body, conforming to the contours of a patient. Because of the Contour Light’s patent-protected reflective coating, the light that would normally bounce off the skin is reflected back, resulting in a much higher retention of light energy than with other similar devices. No other system has this reflective coating. A Contour Light session is pain-free, with no heat or discomfort, and is safe to operate for both the patient and the technician.
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.
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.
