Our red light technology is perfectly safe. It is FDA approved and classified by the FDA in Risk Group 1, the safest category of medical devices. In over 40 years of red light research, there  have never been any negative side effects demonstrated. In fact, the more it is studied, the  more benefits are discovered.

While you listen to music or read a book, the LED panel is aimed at each stubborn  fat area for eight minutes and is rotated according to your treatment plan. Based on your  specific goals, sessions customarily range from 32 minutes to 1 hour.

Based on clinical studies, optimal results are achieved when sessions are structured  1-2 times a week over a 3-6 week period. When used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle,  the average overall inch loss are 8 to 14” by the 7th treatment.

Clinical studies have shown that it is seven times more effective than the other miracle  weight-loss light therapies featured recently on Dr. Oz, such as laser therapies (Zerona) or  other red light therapies (such as i-Lipo), and it is a fraction of the cost. No diet or exercise  program can even begin to compare with our UltraSlim technology.

You will notice results immediately. If you don’t lose at least 2” of fat in less than an hour  during your first treatment, you get your money back if you choose. No other weight loss  procedure or surgery can make this guarantee. Approximately 75% of clients lose  over 3” (a full dress size) on their very first treatment, and some people have even lost as  much as 6-8” on their first treatment!

For best results, treatments should be done 1-2 times per week to allow your liver sufficient  time to process out the released fat. If more than 4” is lost during any one treatment, allow a  week before your next treatment for optimal results.
