Low-Level Laser Treatment (aka cold laser liposuction)
Contour Plus dual wavelenght laser lipo system with 650nm & 940nm advance pads is the latest innovation in Cold Laser Lipolysis, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT). Contour Plus offers you a way to achieve fat reduction, cellulite reduction and body contouring with no pain, no needles and no down time.
How does it work?
Contour Plus dual wavelength laser lipo is our new revolutionary non-invasive laser treatment that uses low level lasers for fat reduction at two different wave lengths (650nm and 940nm), for optimal body contouring treatments and cellulite reduction. This low levels laser energy, creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol then releasing them though channels in the cell membranes. This shrinks the fat cells without destroying them, or damaging the skin and surrounding tissue. The dissolved by products are eliminated from the body using the body’s own natural processes. The fatty acid are filtered the lymph nodes then excreted by the kidneys and the glycerol burn off with aerobic exercise. The result is a remarkable reduction in fat that is noticeable after your very first session!
Cold laser technology has recently been FDA cleared /approved for use as a non-invasive dermatological aesthetic treatment specifically developed for the reduction of circumference of the hips, waist, and thighs.

Why Contour Plus?
Contour Plus is a completely safe, non-invasive procedure that delivers fantastic results which can be seen after the first treatment.
Contour Plus is a Non- surgical procedure which means:
- No recovery time.
- Treatment is painless and relaxing.
- No starvation diet.
- No side effects.
Compared to surgical liposuction and other Ultrasound or laser techniques
Contour Plus is much more affordable with similar results.
Safe and Painless
Contour Plus uses low-level laser technology or cold laser technology. Visible red laser lights create a safe and painless bio-stimulation effect in the targeted fat tissue. This stimulation is of the normal chemical pathways which the body uses to free up energy resources when required, so Contour Plus does not produce any abnormal effects in the body or damage body tissue such as cells, blood vessels or neighboring nerves or vital organs. There is little heat due to the low energy levels required to run the diodes so, no risk of burning .The treatment can be performed on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored and you can return to normal activity immediately after treatment.
Abdominal circumference can be achieved with every treatment. A course of 6 to 8 treatments is recommended over 4 weeks with 2 treatments per week.
Targeted fat reduction
Contour Plus can target fat in specific problem area. By positioning the laser’s pads on the target area such as chin, upper arms, abdomen or thighs fat can be broken down and removed specifically from that area. This is a big advantage over Zerona type machine, diet and exercise that do generalized fat reduction and do not focus on the area of concern. The goal of body contouring is to eliminated the problems areas.
Our custom system has been designed with a 12 pads totaling 164 individual treatment laser diodes. More pads means we can treat larger areas or more than one areas of concern in the same visit reducing treatment time and getting results faster. We can also treat couples or friends who want to loss inches together.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend 2 treatments per week for 4 weeks.
Can I have more than one course?
Yes but it is essential to have a two week gap between courses
Can I have more than one area treated at one time?
Yes if you are prepared to do more cardio exercise
Will the inches stay off after a treatment?
If you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine then yes
What actually happens to the fat?
The fat cells are undamaged, but due to the reaction of the laser light on the cell it will empty the contents. The contents consist of Water, Glycerol and free fatty acids. Following a treatment the Glycerol or sugar is rapidly absorbed by the body. The water carries the free fatty acids, through the lymphatic system, through the kidneys and are then passed out of the body in your urine.
Does the treatment hurt?
No. There is no pain at all.
Will I have to keep coming back to keep my results?
The answer will be dependent upon your lifestyle.
What exercise should they do following an Contour Plus treatment?
Any cardio-vascular exercise adjusted for each client’s fitness level, such as; running machine, swimming, power walking, etc. It is important to check your age and fitness level, and with your PCP before starting any exercise program. Whichever exercise is chosen must get the heart rate up to the point of perspiring. We believe in using the target heart chart to guide your post treatment workout.

Why do some people achieve better results than others?
All Contour Plus treatments are not a miracle cure. However we achieve fantastic results more so with the clients that follow the advice of a sensible diet in addition the more exercise you can do the better the results.
