Does the Contour Light process hurt?

No. It’s completely painless and we actually have a lot of patients doze off during their light sessions.

Are there any side effects?

There are no side effects long or short term other than fat loss from a Contour light session.

How does it work?

The process that takes place during a Contour light session is known as emulsification. Simply put this specific wavelength of red light produced by the Contour light penetrates the fat cell, opens it, and drains it of its contents. These contents are then processed through your liver and kidneys before being disposed of as waste.

Are the results permanent?

Yes. As long as a patient continues to make healthy lifestyle choices such as eating primarily healthy foods, drinking plenty of water, avoiding sedatives, and the overconsumption of processed foods, the results are permanent.

What happens if I don’t lose anything at my first appointment?

We offer a money-back guarantee. If a patient comes in and loses absolutely nothing they get a full refund for their initial Contour Light appointment.

Packages range anywhere from $650 - $3,000+ and it’s all based on the patient’s goals. There is no obligation to move forward after your initial Contour light appointment.

What are the average results?

How do I get the most out of my Contour appointments?

Eat as clean as possible the day of the appointment, consume minimal carbs and no processed foods. Drink plenty of water and be active the day of the appointment, this could be as simple as taking a brisk walk after your Contour light session. Lastly, be sure to get 7-9 hours of sleep the night after the appointment?

How is this different from Lipo or Cool sculpting?

Liposuction: is cosmetic surgery and has little to offer in the way of lasting weight loss. Also, commonly your skin may appear bumpy, wavy, or withered due to uneven fat removal, poor skin elasticity, and unusual healing. These changes may be permanent. Damage beneath the skin from the thin tube (cannula) that's used during liposuction may give the skin a permanent spotted appearance. In addition to all this, it can cause heart and kidney issues.

Cool Sculpting: completely destroys the fat cell and because of this the body can never store fat in the cool sculpted area again which often leads to deformities if the patient ever gains weight again.

Will I sweat?

The light produces a gentle warming effect that may result in some perspiration but nothing excessive.
