Non-invasive, LED-based light therapy is currently the highest in-demand treatment being sought by patients of today simply because of the healthy nature of the outcomes. Unlike ultrasound, radio frequency, laser light, and freezing, LED-based therapies do not cause cellular damage. Quite the opposite -LED light has been shown to promote a natural response within cells based on the wavelength of the light energy used and the type of cell it reaches. Both mid-600nm (including 635nm) and infrared (including 880nm) wavelengths have been used in a wide range of therapies that promote some form of the healing response.
The Contour Light delivers both mid-600nm and infrared light via high-powered, surface mount microchip LEDs that are embedded in a soft and flexible pad. The pads can be easily applied to any area of the body, conforming to the contours of a patient. Because of the Contour Light’s proprietary reflective coating, the light that would normally bounce off the skin is reflected back, resulting in much higher retention of light energy than with other similar devices. No other system has this reflective coating. A Contour Light session is pain-free, with no heat or discomfort, and is safe to operate for both the patient and the technician.
LED-Based Technology – Redefined
Contour Light is the latest advancement in light-emitting diode (LED) technology and is exceptionally effective due to its unique pad design. The large, soft, and flexible pads will contour to the shape of the human body, allowing the light source to be as close as possible to the skin; the optimum way to deliver photonic energy. The wavelengths of 635nm and 880nm light are emitted by the pads of the Contour Light system, combining the beneficial aspects of both frequencies to attain optimal results.
The Contour Light incorporates a reflective surface that traps and redirects light energy back into the tissue. Because the reflective coating is only available on the Contour Light, there is no other LED-based system available on the market that delivers and retains more mid-600nm and infrared light energy.Clinical studies show when a fat cell is exposed to mid-600nm red light, the cell will release 99% of it’s contents within just a few minutes, leaving the cell deflated – much like when a balloon releases its air. The light stimulates the mitochondria of the fat cell in a process call photobiostimulation, causing the cell wall to open and allow the cell contents to escape. The fat that is released is then removed from the body by the lymphatic system via the kidneys and liver.
This treatment is totally non-invasive – no surgery or downtime. Contour Light’s red and infrared LEDs deliver energy at a very high volume, but there’s no heat involved due to the system’s proprietary”heat -sink” technology, which draws the heat away from the skin. There is no pain or discomfort.
