UltraSlim light therapies are non-invasive therapies for slimming the body. They help in removing excess fat 360 degrees around the front, sides and back, helping you lose extra inches from the waist, butt, thighs and arms. UltraSlim uses a special patented type of light to stimulate fat cells and tighten the fascia. The treated fat cells respond by opening temporary pores in the cell and emptying the fat cell contents, releasing that stubborn fat you just can’t seem to get rid of with dieting or exercise. As an added benefit, UltraSlim has been shown to produce collagen and elastin fibers which benefit the appearance of younger and tighter skin. UltraSlim is non-invasive, with no pain, no discomfort, and no side effects. FDA approved for cellulite smoothing with fat reduction, and FDA approved for obesity treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does this really work?

Yes! And the best thing about it is, according to the FDA studies, UltraSlim is the ONLY form of fat loss treatment that has instant results without any side effects. Patients averaged a loss of 3.5 in., which is the equivalent of 1.6 L of fat.

How does it work?

It’s simple. You lay on the table and expose the area you want treated. The red light penetrates the skin and activates the fat cells to open up temporary channels in which the content of the fat cell can be released. Then, your lymphatics, which is part of your blood circulation, picks up the fat content, takes it to the liver to be processed and then, the body voids it through your natural process (urination and through the GI tract). So, no down time and no pain. And, a huge add-on bonus is that not only does the light target the fat cells, it also targets the skin to produce more elastin and collagen, so it tones and tightens the skin as you lose fat, so you’re not left with loose and saggy skin as if you were to lose a lot of fat on your own through diet and exercise.

How much does it cost?

Depending on what all you want treated. For the fat loss you’re looking at $500/visit, which includes the belly, love handles, hips, thighs and glutes.

Will this help me lose fat?

That will really depend on you. It isn’t a magic pill, so if you are eating a bunch of things you know are not good for you, of course you will gain fat. The UltraSlim works well at releasing the fat content from the fat cell, but your diet and lifestyle between treatments will determine how effective your body is at excreting it out of the body.

Is it permanent fat loss?

It’s as permanent as you allow it. So, yes, with poor choices after your treatments you can gain the fat back if you eat enough to support a larger frame, so this should be viewed as a jump start to a new you, but through the UltraSlim we can target the stubborn areas and help them reduce immediately.

What is the difference between this and CoolSculpting?

Coolsculpting is a form of fat loss where they freeze the cell, break it up and the body absorbs it and rids it out of the body. However, it’s quite a bit more expensive, it hurts and results vary from less than 20% fat reduction to more than 50%. CoolSculpting results take months but UltraSlim results are immediate with some additional fat loss and tightening that are final within 3 days of treatments.

The UltraSlim is a relaxing red light that doesn’t kill the fat cell but tricks the cell to open up channels to allow the fat content to escape, so the cell shrinks and the body absorbs the content (triglycerides and fatty acids, etc.) and excretes it naturally. There is no down time or pain and if the patient ever were to gain some of the fat back in the future, they would have an even distribution of fat.

Do I need to do anything to prepare?

Just start prepping your body by drinking plenty of water. We also have some supplements you can start taking: Milk Thistle and Niacin. They help improve the function of the liver and GI tract so your body has a little extra help at ridding it of the fat content the UltraSlim will release.

I don’t have a lot of spare time. Do I have to exercise for this to work?

The UltraSlim is very effective at opening up the channels and expelling the content. You don’t have to go wild and dedicate hours each day at the gym for this to work, but we do encourage some light exercise. The idea is we want to increase your circulation, so your body is more effective at dealing with the fat content that is hanging out between your cells after your treatment. That is why we have you stand on the “shaker” after each treatment; to ensure that if you do not have the time to exercise right after their treatment you can at least have 10 min of increased circulation. Every little thing you do towards a healthy lifestyle will only add to the effectiveness of the treatments.

What do I wear for the treatment?

General rule of thumb is if you want something treated, expose it. Don’t be shy. If you are comfortable, so are we. So, the less the better. For guys, it’s simple. They typically only need to take off their shirt for the regular areas treated. For women, we recommend a
thong style bottom and they can keep their bra on, unless they want their upper back fat treated as well. But if you are shy you can keep the bra on and we’ll just have you displace the material when the time comes, and we can maintain your modesty throughout the process, so you feel comfortable. Just make sure when you come in that your skin is free of lotions or oils and we encourage you to clean your skin prior to your treatment to ensure the best results.

I don’t want to have pictures taken (before and after).

We do before and after pics for a few reasons. Yes, we are always looking to increase our before and after portfolio for marketing, but one of the main reasons we do them is so that you can see your own progress. Pictures say a thousand words. So, it’s nice to be able to look back where you started and see the changes.

How many treatments will I need?

On average, 6 treatments will help rid the body of about 15 lbs. of fat. So if someone is wanting to lose 30 lbs. of fat we would recommend 12 treatments, etc. Firm fibrous fat may take more treatments than squishy fat. This is why a consultation is very helpful to give realistic treatment expectations for optimizing your success.

How often am I allowed to come?

If you are coming in for fat loss, we recommend that you come in 1x/week to get the biggest bang for the buck, but you can come up to 2x/week if you have a time crunch as long as you separate the treatment by 3 days. If you are coming in for skin tightening, we recommend 3x/week for the fastest results.
