What is Contour Light?
Contour Light is the latest advancement in non-invasive body contouring and skin rejuvenation technology. Naturally slim, shape and tone all areas of the body safely without surgery or pain. Contour Light is effective on body areas that are resistant to diet and exercise: waist, hips, thighs, arms and chin. Contour Light is a light emitting diode (LED) system specifically designed to contour the body by losing inches in circumference off specific body areas (waist, hips, thighs, arms, neck) without any pain, downtime, needles or surgery. Contour Light is composed of 4 extra large pads and 2 smaller pads that are placed directly to the fatty areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
How Does It Work?
LED-Based Light Therapy was originally researched by NASA to promote wound healing. This research led to the discovery that this technology accelerates the fat burning process by liquefying fat and opening fat cells. This allows fat to exit the cells and be flushed out of the body via lymphatic system and liver.
This revlutionary new contouring treatment liquefies stubborn fat normally resistant to diet and exercise. The results are immediate, with no pain, no surgery, no downtime, no bruising or no swelling. Most clients see a 2" to 3" reduction of the treated ares at their very first treatment!
Unlike ultra sound, radio frequency, laser light or freezing, LED-based therapies like Contour Light do not cause cellular damge. Not only does the Contour Light not cause damage or pain, it actually has been shown to promote a natural healing response in the body.
Will It Hurt?
Your Contour Light treatements will be 100% painless! Most of our clients actually find the 20-minute session to be very relaxing. For this treatment, you'll be laying down adn relaxed in a private room with soothing music and the lights off. The LED pads will be positioned on top of and under the areas you would like treated, like your stomach, arms, legs and neck. They are not restrictive and will cause no discomfort. You might even be able to sneak in a quick nap!
How quickly does Contour Light work and what results can I expect?
Results can be seen immediately. Individuals have lost anywhere from 2 inches to 18 inches over the course of a series of treatments. Depending on how many treatments you commit to and how much weight you have to lose. Individual results vary. The more inches you have to lose, the more you can expect to lose during each session.
How long is a Contour Light treatment and what does it feel like?
Clients can expect to feel a gentle, warm sensation. Most individuals read, watch television, or take a nap during the 20 minutes treatment light session.
How can I optimize my Contour Light results?
Hydration and exercise are critical. Drink plenty of water (ideally at least 8 glasses of 8 ounces of water) spread out throughout the day to flush the fat from the system. Diuretics (coffee, alcohol, etc.) are discouraged. The client should be active and burn 350 calories every day during their choice of cardio exercise.
What areas of the body can I treat?
Essentially all parts of the body where subcutaneous deposits of fat can be found may be treated with Contour Light, especially those resistant to diet and exercise.
How is Contour Light different than liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure involving the mechanical removal of fat cells. By contrast, Contour Light is completely non-invasive and only affects fat cells temporarily. Contour Light does not compete with liposuction; it is simply a body shaping option available to clients who do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure.
Will it Tighten My Skin?
Does Contour Light help with loose skin?
Anecdotal evidence suggests that clients undergoing Contour Light have noticed an improvement in skin tone and texture.
Does Contour Light improve the appearance of cellulite?
Anecdotal evidence suggests that clients undergoing Contour Light have noticed an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
Are There Side Effects?
How long will results last?
Contour Light does not destroy fat cells but empties them of their contents which means that fat cells are capable of restoring fat should the client have a chronic caloric imbalance. A balanced diet is the only way to ensure longterm improvement. Clients who eat more calories than they burn will see their improvement decrease over time.
How many treatments will I need?
Normal weight requires 10 to 12 treatments, overweight requires 12+ treatments
Would more treatments lead to better results?
Yes, additional treatments will lead to improved results. An additional series of Contour Light treatments can begin immediately after the first series.
Why should clients avoid alcohol during the Contour Light process?
There are three main reasons why alcohol should be avoided with Contour Light:
- 1. Alcohol is a diuretic and it is critical that the body stays optimally hydrated throughout the treatment program.
- 2. Alcohol also contains a lot of calories: a 5-ounce glass of red wine packs 100 calories! This directly conflicts with the recommendations of the program which calls for a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
- 3. Third and most importantly, alcohol is processed as fat by the liver which directly restricts the body’s ability to process the newly liberated fat. Once liberated by Contour Light, the fat that is not used up as energy to fuel the body’s normal metabolic needs is processed by the liver using enzymes. The total amount of fat being processed at any given time is limited by the amount of enzymes produced by the liver. Alcohol is processed as fat by the liver using the same enzymes. So, when the liver is busy processing alcohol, it is not able to process the fat liberated by Contour Light. Hence more time/treatments are required to achieve results.
Where does the fat go?
The fat is distributed back into the body and eliminated through the lymphatic system. Following treatment, 10 minutes of aerobic excercise or 10 minutes on a whole body vibration plate will help with this process • The lymphatic system is a system of lymph nodes and vessels for transporting fatty acids through the circulatory system. • The lymphatic system is powered by muscle movement. • Aerobic exercise or time spent on the vibration plate is necessary to stop the fat from being reabsorbed into the body
