Frequently Asked Questions

How long has this type of technology been around?

Red Light Therapy has been used in the United States for over 40 years, but only recently has the technology advanced enough to provide for fat reduction as well as tightening and rejuvenating the skin.

What is the science behind UltraSlim?

Red light therapy is backed up by hard science and 25 years of clinical research. It has been used as part of “smart” liposuction, in hospital burn units, and for non-narcotic pain relief for those suffering from many ailments from fibromyalgia to scar reduction.

How safe is Ultraslim?
Red light therapy research at Mayo Clinic, NASA, and other leading research organizations has proven the safety and efficacy of red light therapy. With their invention of UltraSlim, Advanced Photonic Systems, LLC has built on the research of Rodrigo Neira, M.D., and Clara Ortiz-Neira, M.D., who in 2001 demonstrated that an 8mW 635nm laser that was held close to the skin could emulsify deep fat and break up the appearance of scar tissue. Red light therapy penetrates tissue delivering energy to stimulate a response from the body to heal itself. Read the medical research published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.


How does UltraSlim get rid of fat in the body? 

Red light technologies remove fat and reduce inches without invasive surgery. The modulated red light tricks the mitochondria in the nucleus of the fat cell into creating a transitory pore in the cell membrane, thus allowing the fatty acids and triglycerides to escape into the interstitial space. The liberated fat cell contents are then drained by the lymphatic system and processed by the liver as part of the body’s normal course of detoxification. The pore in the fat cell will close in about 48-72 hours and the liberated contents will be expelled in the client’s urine and stool over the next few days.

Are there any side effects or pain from UltraSlim? 

Completely non-invasive, this red light technology has never shown any recorded side effects, and clients do not experience any discomfort during the treatments. The modulated red light drains and shrinks the fat cells while also tightening and smoothing the skin, adding new collagen and elastin.

How does UltraSlim compare to other fat reduction treatment methods? 

UltraSlim has been proven to deliver greater photonic energy and fat reduction than Zerona or other competing products. UltraSlim uses 144 modulated high-power light-emitting diodes in comparison to Zerona’s 5 low-power laser-emitting diodes.

Is UltraSlim guaranteed? 

Only UltraSlim guarantees that clients will lose at least 2” in their first full-body treatment. No other technology comes close! Unlike other technologies, UltraSlim does not touch the body, but covers an area 23” by 17” in each exposure. Every client is different and loss varies. Please keep in mind that diet and exercise are highly recommended for the best results.
