Q. What is Contour Light?
Light is a light emitting diode (LED) system that
delivers red and infrared light. The system is comprised
of large, flexible, soft pads that are very similar to a
heating-pad. These pads can be placed beneath or on top
of the patient. The treatment does not cause any pain or
Q. What is mid-600nm Technology?
A. The label of
mid-600nm refers to the wavelength of light emitted by
the LEDs.In clinical studies, it was proven that
mid-600nm light initiates a photobiostimulation of the
fat cell, causing the cell to release its contents,
resulting in a deflation or shrinkage of the cell.
Q. What does a Contour Light treatment feel like?
A. 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.
Q. What type of results can be expected?
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
Q. How long will the results last?
A. 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.
Q. Can anyone be treated?
A. 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. Patients
are recommended to consult their physician before
starting any type of diet or exercise program.
Q. Do patients need to follow a strict diet and exercise
A. The protocol
associated with the Contour Light system involves simple
to follow directions, but does not require a strict diet
or strenuous exercise. As with any type of weight
modifying program, diet and exercise will have an effect
on the results, specifically if a person does not make an
attempt to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A small amount
of exercise and a recommended level of water consumption
will help with lymphatic stimulation to optimize results.
The Contour Light protocol can help to motivate a person
and jump start a person’s determination to improve their
appearance, making it much easier to attain their goal of
a sleeker and sexier profile.
Q. What areas of the body can be treated?
A. The Contour
Light can be used on any part of the body; hips, waist,
thighs, back, upper arms and neck.
Q. Will cholesterol and triglyceride levels increase after
A. There is no
evidence that a mid-600nm treatment will cause an
elevation of triglyceride or cholesterol levels. These
treatments are totally safe.
Q. Will a mid-600nm device work on an obese individual?
obese patients can benefit from a treatment involving a
mid-600nm device. Just as with any other type of patient,
the improvement in appearance has a motivating effect,
enabling the patient to apply effort that can provide
exceptional results in the long term.
Q. Is the Contour Light device safe?
A. 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.
Q. What can a person do to optimize their results?
A. To achieve
optimal results with the Contour Light treatments, the
patient should follow the simple steps outlined in our
protocol. This protocol involves a moderate diet, minimal
exercise and reasonable water consumption. Any individual
who is committed to improving their appearance will have
no problem following these guidelines.
Q. Why should clients avoid alcohol during the Contour
A. There are
three main reasons why alcohol should be avoided while
receiving the Contour Light treatment.
1. Alcohol is a diuretic and it is critical that the body
stays optimally hydrated throughout the treatment
2. Alcohol is high in calories and directly conflicts
with the recommendations of any diet/body modification
3. Third and most important, alcohol is processed by the
liver, which directly restricts the body’s ability to
process the fat released during the treatment series.
When the liver is occupied by the processing of alcohol,
it is less able to process any additional fat or waste.
