HOW IT WORKS
- In 1998, a Columbian physician discovered that exposing a patient to a mid-600nm red light prior to liposuction surgery caused the subcutaneous fat to be much easier to remove. Additional testing was conducted and the results were astounding; the mitochondria within the fat cells became stimulated by exposure to 635nm light, causing them to create “transient pores” in the cell membrane. These transient pores allow the contents of the cell to escape and be released into the interstitial area of the body, resulting in a shrinking of the fat cell. The contents, triglycerides (water, glycerol and fatty acids), then enter the lymphatic system and are transported to the liver.
- The studies indicated that, as the triglycerides are carried away by the lymphatic system, the volume of the treated area contracts, resulting in a reduction of the circumference of the patient’s body.
- In patients that are maintaining a healthy diet, exercise regularly and drink plenty of water, the results can be dramatic and measurable with just one treatment.
- Because the Slim Light device delivers up to 100 times the light energy of competing systems, the fat cells are bathed in the highest level of 635nm energy, providing the deepest and most complete exposure to the light. The treatment is painless; there is no heat or discomfort involved and no risk to either the patient or the operator. Completely safe. Totally effective.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING EACH SESSION?
During the treatment, you will be placed lying down on a treatment table. Special red light pads will be positioned in strategic places on your body as you simply enjoy a relaxing 20 minute session.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The unique light emitted from our device causes the fat cell membranes to temporarily alter the permeability of the cell wall. This brief change allows some of the fat contents to seep out to where it can then be processed by the body. The process also increases collagen and elastin in the skin while creating a slimmer appearance.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT?
After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and enters the blood stream. Once in the blood stream, the fatty acids can be either used as fuel or quickly eliminated by the body.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT CELLS?
No harm is done to the fat cells. They simply shrink to a fraction of their original size.
WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND A LIVER SUPPORT ?
Your liver is the ultimate filter to remove toxins and nutrient byproducts from the body. The fast release of fat requires a strong liver and therefore a high quality liver support is recommended.
WHAT AREA OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED?
The treatment can be effectively used on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. This includes the waist, hips, upper legs, thighs and upper arms.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are usually seen after just one treatment.
HOW LONG LASTING ARE THE RESULTS?
The results can be very long-lasting. However, this method does not destroy fat cells but releases some of their contents. If your caloric intake is significantly higher than you require, your body will eventually store fat again. For this reason, we recommend a maintenance program of once or twice per month after the desired results are attained.
WHAT RISKS ARE INVOLVED?
There are no risks or side effects involved and it is a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction or cool-sculpting.
ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR IT'S USE?
Although the treatment is very safe, there are the usual contraindications which include: Pregnancy, Active Cancer, HIV/AIDs, and Hepatitis C.
DO I HAVE TO FOLLOW A DIET?
No changes are required… but you can expect better results if you reduce your caloric intake somewhat and increase your water consumption.
DO I HAVE TO EXERCISE?
Each of your sessions will be followed by 10 minutes of exercise to stimulate circulation and also help burn the fat that has been released.
DOES THIS THERAPY HELP WITH CELLULITE & LOOSE SKIN?
Clients undergoing this therapy have noticed an improvement with cellulite as well as skin tone and texture.
WHAT RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE?
Slim Light Therapy is based on the over forty years of research starting with NASA experimentation and culminating with the aesthetic and orthopedic industries today. Following the recent discovery that 635nm light has an effect on fat cells, this new technology has created an explosion in the body sculpting industry.
