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.
The studies indicated that, as the triglycerides are carried away by the lymphatic system, the volume of the treated area contracts, resulting in a reduction of the circumference of the patient’s body.
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. Completely safe. Totally effective.
