Fat Loss FAQs - How Can UltraSlim Help Me And What Can I Expect
What Is UltraSlim®?
UltraSlim® is the ONLY non-invasive FDA cleared, device for INSTANT fat loss. It can be used on virtually any area of the body or face. It uses a specific dose of red light to promote the leakage of fat from the fat cells, which are then excreted out by the body’s natural metabolic processes. UltraSlim® differs from non-surgical reduction methods, like CoolSculpting® and SculpSure®, which depend on apoptosis or killing your living tissue. Since it is a touchless transformation there is no accompanying recovery or discomfort. UltraSlim offers faster results than the destructive treatment options, with no pain or downtime.
How Does UltraSlim® Work?
UltraSlim® uses a specific wavelength of visible red light that opens pores on the wall of the fat cell, allowing fat to leak out of the cells for up to 72 hours. This red light is not a laser or hot to the touch, so it does not cause any pain or damage to fat cells. As a result, no unwanted side effects have been reported with UltraSlim®. Patients do not experience any discomfort during treatment, which typically lasts about 32 minutes.
Additionally, this breakthrough therapy causes a photochemical reaction in skin cells that can tighten skin, reduce the appearance of certain skin imperfections, and create a more youthful appearance in the treated area. This technique has been used for medical purposes for many years to accelerate healing.
Would UltraSlim® Work For Me?
UltraSlim® proved to be 100% effective for fat loss during clinical trials and can help most people lose unwanted or stubborn fat, but it is not appropriate for every person. If you are pregnant, have active cancer, severe kidney or liver problems or are sensitive to light therapy, you should consider another option for your goals. During your initial consultation, our certified staff will review your needs and discuss your goals to determine if UltraSlim® is right for you. Patients should be in good general health and desire to lose fat in one or more targeted areas.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
While some results should be visible after the first treatment, the vast majority of patients choose a multi-treatment package to achieve their desired outcome. The number of sessions will vary based on number of areas to treat, overall health, and desired goals among other factors. Treatment plans can range from as little as two to as many as 24 treatments. We will advise on the estimated number of sessions you will need during your first appointment. It’s also important to remember that everybody responds a little differently to UltraSlim®. While it was proven to work for 100% of people in the FDA trials, those with faster metabolisms, or that eat nutritiously, tend to see greater results. We encourage our patients to maintain or establish healthy habits to optimize their outcome.
What Is UltraSlim® Recovery Like?
UltraSlim® is painless, comfortable, relaxing, and relatively quick. A belly buster treatment covering the torso takes about 32 minutes, and you are welcome to return to your normal schedule following the procedure. There are no limitations on activity, and you should see continued fat loss over the next week in addition to more immediate results.

What is UltraSmooth®?
UltraSmooth® is green light therapy that reduces the appearance of cellulite by relaxing fascia or connective bands while simultaneously stimulating the lipolysis process that shrinks fat cells. The result is a much smoother appearance in the treated area coupled with fat reduction. The device is FDA cleared for reduction in the appearance of cellulite as well as fat loss. UltraSmooth® can be used by anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of cellulite as long as there are no contraindications that would preclude treatment such as pregnant, active cancer, certain autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, severe kidney or liver problems, or light sensitivity.
Is UltraSmooth® painful?
UltraSmooth® is also a touchless transformation and is completely non-invasive, pain free, with no side effects. There is no downtime or discomfort during or after the treatment. The treatment consists of 20 minutes under the light and a 5-minute impact massage to further relax the connective bands post-treatment.
