Contour Light Therapy Program

At Optimal Family Chiropractic, we are dedicated to patient wellness and happiness through programs like our unique Contour Light Therapy.

What is Contour Light Therapy?

Contour light therapy is a supporting method for weight loss and target places on the body where fat is resistant to shedding. It works by shining concentrated 635nm and 880nm of LED light directly onto a patient’s skin – causing extra fat cells (adipose) in the body to gather together, travel through the lymphatic system, and exit the body through waste.

What Does the Procedure Look Like?

Your first appointment for contour light therapy at Optimal Family Chiropractic starts with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Brenda L. Rooney, D.C. She will evaluate your health to determine whether contour therapy is right for you, answer your questions about the therapy, capture pre-procedure photos (upon your approval) for your patient records, and suggest a treatment schedule based on your body type and health.

For the procedure, Dr. Rooney will place 6 LED pads on the place where you desire fat loss the most. You will see small bursts of light under these pads during your treatment session. Contour light therapy is completely painless, natural, and non-invasive. It requires no anesthetics, no surgery, and no recovery time, and the only sensations you might feel is warmth from the light!

Treatment schedules for contour light therapy usually require at least 10-12 sessions for optimal results, and should never replace a balanced diet and regular exercise.

Are there Side Effects or Risks to Contour Light Therapy?

While very little adverse side effects are reported from contour light therapy, some patients have experienced redness on the skin, swelling, heat sensitivity, pain, increase bowel movements and increased urination, though these side effects are extremely rare.

If you are pregnant or have cancer, heart disease, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C or D or a Pacemaker, you should not undergo this type of therapy.

What are the Benefits of Contour Light Therapy

Contour light therapy is a healthier alternative to liposuction or surgical weight loss. It’s also highly beneficial for areas on the body where stubborn fat tends to reside. In some cases, contour light therapy can also be used to treat chronic pain.

The best places to treat with contour light therapy include:

  • Hips
  • Under the neck
  • Underarms
  • Stomach
  • Thighs

Some studies show that patients who received contour light therapy lost 2-5 cm from multiple body regions through one treatment plan of therapy. Results vary from patient to patient, however, but when the therapy is paired with regular exercise and a clean diet, you will see results.
