Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.

Many dentists use a UV light to whiten their patient’s teeth, but only the beauty experts at Twilight Teeth reasoned that clients could use the same light to tan their skin while whitening their teeth. The UV lights of their tanning beds shine on bodies and illuminate smiles, comfortably held open by a mouth guard and coated in gel. The gel activates under the light and contains 25% peroxide—among the highest concentrations in the industry. Since the gel is painted on instead of held in place by a whitening tray, it can brighten high beams with minimal discomfort. Clients who can’t stay at the tanning salon can take home a kit, which substitutes a portable UV light or a mason jar filled with baby stars.
