Frequently Asked Questions

Get Started

Is red light technology safe?

Our red light technology is perfectly safe. It is FDA-cleared 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.

What can I expect during a session?

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.

What kind of results can I expect?

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 is 8 to 14” by the 7th treatment.

How does it compare to other body contouring therapies?

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.

How long does it take to get results?

You will notice the 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!

How often can I receive treatments?

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.

Is it safe for breast feeding moms?

Yes. However, always consult with your doctor.

How much does it cost?

At Contours, we understand that everyone has different aesthetic goals, this is why we offer a FREE consultation to discuss with our team those are and how to maximize your treatment visits. Once we have a better understanding of your medical history and goals we will craft a package that fits your needs.

Where does the fat go?

The liberated emulsified fat is picked up by the lymphatic system and processed by the liver as part of the body’s normal course of detoxification. The transitory pore in the fat cell will close in about 48-72 hours, and the liberated contents will be excreted over the next few days.

Is red light technology for everyone?

No. The treatments should not be used by pregnant women or individuals with active cancer. When treatments empty the fat cells, the liver causes fatty acids and triglycerides to be voided from the body. Accordingly, individuals with compromised liver function should not receive treatments.

Do some people respond better than others?

Yes. Patients with a higher metabolic rate are better able to excrete the fat cell contents and enjoy better results. However, the technology works for patients of all ages and skin types.

Is the treatment painful?

No, in fact, it is very relaxing. Many people report that chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and joint problems actually improve after being exposed to red light.

In the past when I lost weight, I got a lot of unsightly sagging skin as a result. Will this treatment cause the same thing?

No. The treatment actually tightens your skin by creating lots of new collagen and elastin in the skin cells. It will even help you reduce sagging skin and stretch marks from previous weight loss.

What kind of benefits does your technology provide besides dramatic fat reduction?

It can reduce fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles. It also tightens skin,  builds collagen and elasticity, increases blood circulation, enhances the metabolism, reduces  the appearance of cellulite, detoxifies and revives the body, and does not harm fat cells.

How long will it last?

As long as you want it to if you’re willing to maintain a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet, proper nutrition, lots of water, and exercise. Just like anything else, to keep it, you have to maintain it.

Are there clinical studies involving UltraSlim® and red light technology?

In 2015 multi-site clinical trials ( NCT02867150), researchers demonstrated that UltraSlim Professional medical devices deliver the results that patients want:.

  • Immediate Results. All patients lost fat immediately, without dieting, exercise, pills or surgery.  Coolsculpting® takes 12 to 16 weeks, SculptSure® takes 6 to 12 weeks. and UltraSlim® takes only 32 minutes!
  • Dramatic Fat Loss At Each Visit. Patients lost an average of 1.6 liters of fat in just 32 minutes (3.5″ combined waist, hips, and thighs) at one visit.
  • Works For Everyone. Every patient had clinically significant losses at each visit, ranging from 717ml to 4,608ml (1 5/8″ to 10″  from the waist, hips, and thighs).
  • A Safer Device. UltraSlim Professional is the only fat reduction device classified in the lowest risk category as a Risk Group 1 device. There are zero side effects, complications, or adverse events.
  • Durability. Patients seen at follow-up had lost an additional 1 1/8″ of fat during the week following treatment. With UltraSlim, patients lose the fat permanently through a natural bodily function known as “lipolysis”, whereby the contents of their fat cells are excreted primarily in their waste. Once you flush the toilet, that fat cannot come back! Of course, patients can gain weight in the future if they consume too many calories.
