Calling on more than 50 years of combined experience, the doctors at Body Sculpt By Laser make over clients from the inside out with holistic, noninvasive treatments. Their one-two coup de gr?ce against flab begins with the FDA-approved i-Lipo Laser, which shrinks fatty adipose cells by causing them to release triglycerides for natural disposal through the lymphatic system. This gentle process is aided by whole-body-vibration treatments that kick metabolisms into overdrive for expedient fat removal. Clients can also shed inches with non-invasive Lipo Laser treatments or remove unwanted follicles with laser hair removal. Set in an intimate, casual atmosphere, the staff also creates custom lifestyle programs and nutritional plans, and supplies herbal supplements to bolster weight-loss efforts.
