What is CONTOUR PRO™?
CONTOUR PRO™ is a revolutionary technology that builds muscle and reduces fat. It’s an innovative way to contour your body by stimulating muscle contractions with no surgery or downtime. The technology used is FDA-cleared to safely and effectively build muscle, improve muscle tone and increase strength. Treatment areas currently include the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms.
Who Can Benefit from CONTOUR PRO™?
CONTOUR PRO™ is the ideal treatment for anyone looking to build muscle and reduce fat to get defined abs or a non-invasive booty lift. If you are frustrated by fad exercises or long hours in the gym and feel like you could use some help achieving your desired results, CONTOUR PRO™ is the perfect solution for you. Our Contour Pro™ will work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. Treatment plans are customized to achieve the results you desire.
What Does CONTOUR PRO™ Treatment FEEL like?
The CONTOUR PRO™ procedure feels like an intensive workout of muscles in the target area being treated. The variable level is increased by the CONTOUR PRO™ Specialist during the course of the treatment based on your feedback. The level is gradually increased over the series of treatments. You can lay down, relax, watch TV and talk during the treatment. Use of portable electronic devices is not recommended since proximity to the CONTOUR PRO™ applicator may cause damage to delicate electronics.
How Does CONTOUR PRO™ Work?
CONTOUR PRO™ uses sophisticated technology to simultaneously emit High Intensity Focused Magnetic Resonant Energy energy with Radiofrequency energy with a single applicator. These combined energies provide a synergistic effect, producing better results in a single treatment than would be individually produced through separate treatments.
The addition of RF to the CONTOUR PRO™ treatment optimizes fat reduction. As with the original treatment, CONTOUR PRO™ delivers unprecedented muscle development using focused energy. The energy passes safely through the skin to stimulate supramaximal contractions in the underlying muscle. The muscle contractions are far more powerful than a person can induce on their own through exercise. More than 20,000 contractions are induced through each treatment. Just as with exercise, the contractions press the body to adapt by strengthening existing muscle fibers and creating new muscle cells.
Before inducing the contractions, the radio frequency energy heats underlying tissue. This warms the muscle up in preparation for the contractions. The radio frequency technology adds a synergistic effect to the muscle building while also triggering lipolysis: the death of fat cells. Thermal energy via radio frequency disrupts the fat cells. The lymphatic system collects the destroyed fat cells and processes them out of the body as waste. The fat cells cannot grow back after they are removed from the body. The fat cells are gone for good, producing long-lasting results.
Is There Research on this Technology?
Yes, literature exists in published journals. Here is a <link> to one study. You can also look up published articles in the literature by searching PubMed. Here is a link <PubMed> page where you can read the published research.
How Fast Will I See Results?
Tangible results are felt right after the treatment, similar to an intensive workout of the target area muscles. Positive visible results for muscle toning are usually seen two to four weeks after the last session in the series of treatments. Positive visible results of fat reduction are usually seen 8-12 weeks after treatment. The underlying muscles require time to adapt and strengthen. Fat cells that are destroyed through apoptosis during the series of treatments are gradually and naturally eliminated by the body. Visible results continue to improve for weeks to months after the treatment series.
How Many CONTOUR PRO™ Treatments are Needed to See Results?
The number of treatments required is dependent on your desired results and where you are starting in terms of muscle tone and undesirable fat. One series of CONTOUR PRO™ treatment will increase muscle up to 25% and reduce fat by up to 30% in the treated area. Many people are pleased with the results of just one series of CONTOUR PRO™ treatment. Some people feel that they need more than one series of treatment to achieve their desired results. During your free consultation, one of our CONTOUR PRO™ specialists will provide answers regarding how many treatments you may need to achieve your goals in the treated area.
How Long Does the CONTOUR PRO™
Prior to your treatment, you will come into New Radiance Cosmetic Centers for a free consultation for your abdomen with one of our CONTOUR PRO™ Specialists. Depending on what questions you may have, your consultation will take between 15 and 30 minutes.
The CONTOUR PRO™ treatment will take about 30 minutes. Some people may elect to have additional treatments performed. Since CONTOUR PRO™ is non-surgical and non-invasive, there is no downtime. You could schedule a treatment for your lunch break and return to work immediately after. Normal physical activities can be resumed immediately after your CONTOUR PRO™ .
Is Any Pre/Post Treatment Preparation Required?
No, CONTOUR PRO™ is non-invasive and requires no pre or post treatment preparation.
Can CONTOUR PRO™ Tighten Loose Skin?
CONTOUR PRO™ is highly effective for building muscle and reducing fat – up to 25% muscle mass increase and 30% fat reduction per series of treatments – on the abdomen. CONTOUR PRO™ may result in some skin tightening in the treated area. However, CONTOUR PRO™ is not a skin tightening treatment. To get you the results you desire, Elite Health Systems offers (NIR) Near Infra-Red technology with Life-Light Solana or Invisa-Red technology to tighten loose skin after your CONTOUR PRO™ treatments.
Is There Any Pain or Discomfort?
While pain and discomfort are relative and experiences will vary, CONTOUR PRO™ involves minimal discomfort, if any. During the procedure, you will feel muscles contract with the treatment level gradually increased by the CONTOUR PRO™ Specialist. After treatment, you will feel like your muscles have been worked. Any such feelings will be short-lived.
Can I Undergo an CONTOUR PRO™ Treatment While Pregnant?
This technology is FDA-cleared and has helped many people build muscle and reduce excess fat. However, the procedure is not recommended for everyone. Prior to or after a pregnancy, CONTOUR PRO™ has no negative impact on women. However, pregnant women are advised not to undergo a CONTOUR PRO™ treatment on any part of their body.
Are There Other Contraindicated Medical Conditions for CONTOUR PRO™
CONTOUR PRO™ treatment is not recommended in some circumstances due to the electromagnetic effects of the treatment.
CONTOUR PRO™ isn’t an appropriate choice if you:
Have implanted metal, a pacemaker or cardiac defibrillator near the treatment site.
Have cardiac issues or a history of seizures.
Have a hernia or have had recent surgery near the treatment site.
A CONTOUR PRO™ Specialist will evaluate these considerations during your free consultation.
