Whole Body Light Contouring
Contour Light is the latest advancement in light emitting diode (LED) technology and is exceptionally effective on all body areas 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 which 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.
The Evolution of Light Therapy
Low level red light therapy has evolved into one of the highest in-demand treatments caused by an increased public awareness of many non-surgical, non-invasive options made available by this new and growing technology.
CONTOUR LIGHT The latest advancement in low level light technology, delivering LED-based energy in the 635nm and 880nm wavelength.
The revolutionary design of the CONTOUR LIGHT allows for better results in less time, which equals higher patient satisfaction.
Based on clinically proven technology, the CONTOUR LIGHT Delivers consistent and dramatic results.
LED as Light Therapy
Research in light therapy has been conducted for decades, starting with NASA experimentation in the 1980’s, culminating with the aesthetic and orthopedic industries of today. Following the recent discovery of how 635nm (mid-600nm) and 880nm (infrared) light interacts with various cells, this new technology has created an explosion in the already growing light-therapy marketplace.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is LLLT?
LLLT stands for Low Level Light Therapy. This is different than a medical or aesthetic laser treatment because the energy emitted by a LLLT device is much lower than a medical or aesthetic laser system. The effects on the patient’s skin with a LLLT device are gradual, as compared with a medical or aesthetic laser that delivers an immediate response. LLLT devices are much safer to operate as compared to medical or aesthetic laser systems.
Are there other 635nm devices on the market?
There are many versions of 635nm devices on the market, some are classified as a medical device due to the fact they are laser-based, while others are LED-based. Laser-based 635nm devices require physician oversight and cannot be operated by a non-medical technician without direct physician supervision. LED-based 635nm devices will not cause injury to patients or technicians, so they are much safer to operate.
What does a Contour Light treatment feel like?
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, while some will even take a short nap.
How long will the results last?
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.
Do patients need to follow a strict diet and exercise regimen?
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.
Will cholesterol and triglyceride levels increase after a treatment?
There is no evidence that a 635nm treatment will cause an elevation of triglyceride or cholesterol levels. These treatments are totally safe.
Is the Contour Light device safe?
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.
Why did the early version of a 635nm light system have some patients who did not see a satisfactory result?
The first 635nm LLLT device was released with a lot of fanfare and promoted as a quick-fix fat reduction device, even without FDA approval of those claims. Since it was laser-based, it was primarily sold to physicians, but the level of training and education was less than satisfactory to the point where most physicians did not understand the entire process. As a result, patients were overpromised and most experienced less than acceptable outcomes. Patients expected to just sit under the light and their fat would be melted away, but that’s not how 635nm LLLT works. It was not properly stressed with the patients that the right diet, a slight amount of exercise to stimulate the lymphatic system, and drinking plenty of water will dramatically improve their results. Additionally, the fact that the 635nm light source on this device was very weak, was positioned away from the patient’s body (measured light energy dissipates at an exponential rate as the distance between the source and the target increases), plus the beam was moving and not focusing on one specific spot, creating a situation where very little light energy was delivered to the fat cells. Since that early version, studies have been performed and a better understanding of the complete process with the steps that need to be taken to attain acceptable results has helped this segment of the market evolve into a proven and successful revenue-generating technology.
What is 635nm Technology?
The label of 635nm refers to the wavelength of light the device produces.
What is the difference between laser light and LED light when it relates to this technology?
The light emitted by a 635nm device, regardless of whether the source is laser-based or LED-based, will deliver the same reaction within the tissue. This has been proven in a study done by a physician that indicated both types of light, laser and LED, became diffused upon entering the dermis. The light was diffused to the point where there was no negligible difference between the two types of light when it reached the subcutaneous fat cells (fat cells below the surface of the skin).
What type of results can be expected?
The recommended Contour Light treatment protocol involves 10 treatments in a series, delivered every other day or every 3 days. Most patients see a noticeable improvement within the first 2 or 3 treatments, some 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 treatments.
Can anyone be treated?
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.
What areas of the body can be treated?
The Contour Light can be used on any part of the body; hips, waist, thighs, back, upper arms and neck.
Will a 635nm device work on an obese individual?
Clinically obese patients can benefit from a treatment involving a 635nm device. Just as with any other type of patient, the improvement in appearance has a motivating effect, enabling the patient to apply an effort that can provide exceptional results in the long term.
What can a person do to optimize their results?
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.
