Light Therapy Science
PHotobiomodulation stimulates mitochondria and increases the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
Not only does near-infrared light focus on the cytochrome c oxidase in the mitochondria that increases the production of ATP but it also releases nitric oxide, which is a key signaling molecule in the body and is important in blood pressure and overall circulation.
Photobiomulation has many physical effects that relate to both the increased production of ATP and nitric oxide in the body including wound healing, scar prevention, increased circulation, liver congestion relief, mood elevation, pain relief and more.

How the Contour Light Works
The Contour Light is 635 nano meter LED red light therapy for fat reduction and body contouring. The light signals the fat cells to open and release their contents. The released fat is metabolized by the body. This is a natural process similar to what the body does during diet or exercise. It is painless and completely safe.
Also 635 nm light signals the skin’s fibroblast cells to produce more collagen and elastin which firms and tightens the skin. Overall theContour Light is very therapeutic.
Non-invasive body contouring is currently the highest in-demand aesthetic treatment, caused by an Increased public awareness of the non-surgical options to reduce unwanted fat on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms and chin.
Clinical studies have proven that exposure to 635nm light causes a stimulation of the subcutaneous fat cells, resulting in the release of triglycerides into the interstitial region of the body. This requires the proper balance within a person’s system to efficiently process the excess fatty acids.
Results for the patient are the utmost priority and providing every patient with a complete set of tools to reach their individual goal is a necessity. The patient should drink plenty of water to flush their lymphatic system, and of course their diet is important, while some form of exercise is beneficial, but neither has to be restricting or stressful to achieve the desired effect.
All light in the mid-600nm wavelength, whether it is laser or LED, will cause the reaction of the fat cells and the two key factors are the amount of light energy delivered and the wavelength.
The Contour Light produces up to 40 times more light energy than competing systems in this market, at the same 635nm wavelength that has been proven to deliver inch loss in multiple, independent clinical studies*. The Contour Light treatment is pain-free, with no heat or discomfort, and is safe to operate for both the patient and the technician.
