She also stocks her shelves with a wide array of products such as HCG diet supplements, eyelash enhancer, and Cynergy-brand skincare products.

The staff at Amherst Laser Lipo Center brings weight-loss goals to fruition with the pairing of noninvasive cold-laser technology and whole-body vibration sessions. The former sends a laser beneath the skin to the fat cells, where it stimulates a natural process that causes the cells to release their water, glycerol and free fatty acids. Then, the latter augments these treatments by boosting metabolism and circulation, which can result in slimmer physiques without trips to the gym.
