Frequently Asked Questions

How does that technology that Photonic Slim uses work?

The innovative light therapy technology used at Photonic Slim is the fastest route to losing belly fat without surgery. The American-made, FDA approved red light therapy system will help you lose fat and reduce inches without needles, incisions, or recovery time. Photonic Slim is proud to help the community of Ogden lose belly fat fast with this miraculous light therapy.

The patented light therapy technology used at our Ogden clinic stimulates the nucleus of the fat cells, tricking them into cleansing the cell of fatty acids and triglycerides. The fat cell’s contents are then drained by your body and processed by the liver as a part of your body’s natural metabolic process. Your body will quickly shed stubborn belly fat over the next few days through natural processes. Our red light therapy operates at the cellular level. Photonic Slim takes advantage of a comples, cascading photochemical mechanism called UltraSlim Cold Light®. This advanced system makes it easy to lose stubborn belly fat fast for our Ogden patients.

This non-invasive light therapy has never shown any negative side effects or caused patient discomfort during treatment. Red light therapy melts away belly fat fast, tightens skin, and restores youthful vigor by adding collagen and elastin. If you’re in the Ogden area and are trying to lose weight, we’re here to help. Get the body you want fast with the revolutionary weight loss treatments at Photonic Slim in Ogden.

How was UltraSlim Cold Light® invented?

Red light therapy has been used in the United States for over 40 years, but only recently has the technology advanced to provide for fat reduction as well as tightening and rejuvenating the skin. Red light therapy has been used in hospital burn units for accelerated healing, as part of “smart” liposuction, and in non-narcotic pain relief.

In 2001, Rodrigo Neira, M.D. and Clara Ortiz-Neira, M.D. demonstrated lipolysis using a red laser (now patented), but follow-on published clinical studies reported that lipolysis could not be induced with non-laser light.

In 2011, Terry J. Ward, M.H.A. invented the patented UltraSlim Cold Light® fat reduction process at our office in Orlando, Florida.  Together with research by UltraSlim employees Robyn Hovey and NASA-veteran Heidi Araya, Ward developed a new generation of non-laser red light therapy using light-emitting diodes (LEDs).

The patented UltraSlim Cold Light® technology used by Photonic Slim delivers eight times more photonic energy to the fat cells than Drs. Rodrigo’s laser technology. As a result, Photonic Slim delivers permanent fat loss results with one 32-minute session which would require at least six 40-minute treatments with Drs. Rodrigo’s laser invention.

What makes Photonic Slim different than other alternatives?

Using patented red light technology, Photonic Slim delivers better results than surgery, and without the dangers and downtime.

  • Immediate results without diet or exercise, patients permanently lose an average of 3.5″ (1.6 liters of fat) at the very first session
  • Lose more fat than with surgery — more than one liter at the first session!
  • No pain, no needles, no surgery, no downtime, no side effects, no regrets
  • Unlike other technologies, Photonic Slim uses technology that does not touch the body, but uniformly covers an area 23″ by 17″
  • Use your Photonic Slim success to jumpstart lifestyles changes to maintain and improve your health and body image

Photonic Slim uses red light therapy that painlessly reduces fat in the tissue under the skin. This FDA approved technology allows the body to safely eliminate fat while reducing inches from target areas, slimming, and reshaping body lines while tightening and toning loose skin.

A revolutionary method that delivers results while allowing patients to remain active during treatment, Photonic Slim supports physicians in their quest to deliver optimum care and well being to their patients. The fat cells are drained of triglycerides and fatty acids — in the areas treated with the red light and throughout the body, due to a chemical process that also improves cholesterol and reduces hunger.

Have there been clinical studies of red light therapy?

In 2015 multi-site clinical trials (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT02867150), researchers demonstrated that the Ultra Slim medical devices deliver the results that patients want:.

  • Immediate Results. All patients lost fat immediately, without dieting, exercise, pills or surgery.  Coolsculpting® takes 12 to 16 weeks, SculptSure® takes 6 to 12 weeks. and UltraSlim Cold Light® takes only 32 minutes!
  • Dramatic Fat Loss At Each Visit. Patients lost an average of 1.6 liters of fat in just 32 minutes (3.5″ combined waist, hips, and thighs) at one visit.
  • Works For Everyone. Every patient had clinically significant losses at each visit, ranging from 717ml to 4,608ml (1 5/8″ to 10″  from the waist, hips, and thighs).
  • A Safer Device. Ultra Slim is the only fat reduction device classified in the lowest risk category as a Risk Group 1 device. There are zero side effects, complications, or adverse events.
  • Durability. Patients seen at follow-up had lost an additional 1 1/8″ of fat during the week following treatment. With red light therapy, patients lose the fat permanently through a natural bodily function known as “lipolysis”, whereby the contents of their fat cells are excreted primarily in their waste. Once you flush the toilet, that fat cannot come back! Of course, patients can gain weight in the future if they consume too many calories.

When the fat melts away, where does it go?

The fat cell contents are voided from the body in the stool and urine.

Is the technology used by Photonic Slim safe?

Yes. 100% safe. UltraSlim Cold Light® Professional is the only body contouring device classified by FDA in the lowest risk group, Risk Group 1.

There are always risks with liposuction and other body contouring devices, such as Coolsculpting®, SculpSure®, and Zerona®.

There are no side effects or adverse outcomes with Photonic Slim Professional.

Only Photonic Slim Professional is proven to be 100% safe.

Do some people respond better than others?

Yes. Patients with a higher metabolic rate are better able to excrete the fat cell contents and enjoy better results. However, Photonic Slim uses technology that works for patients of all ages and skin types.

Is Photonic Slim for everyone?

No. Photonic Slim uses red light therapy that should not be used by those who are pregnant, have active cancer, or have photosensitive conditions. When fat cells are emptied, the liver causes fatty acids and triglycerides to be voided from the body. Accordingly, individuals with compromised liver function should not receive Photonic Slim treatments.

What does Photonic Slim cost?

Nationally, Photonic Slim costs about half as much as cosmetic surgery. Costs average $500 to $1000 per session, and the average patient loses at least 2″ from the waist, hips, and thighs.

Most people select care plans with 3 to 24 treatments.
