Body Design of Pittsburgh and its expertly trained staff trim fat and inches off bodies with a virtually pain-free, FDA-approved Zerona body-slimming laser treatment. Touted as a safer alternative to surgery, the method allows patients to remain fully active during each 40-minute treatment and has little to no side effects. Patients will relax while lasers emit beams into their sides, diminishing waists, hips, thighs, and drumsticks by a combined three to nine inches (results vary depending on the individual). A preliminary medical consultation will determine if customers with thyroid disease or diabetes are eligible for treatment; the procedure is not recommended for those with other metabolic disorders, those who have had cancer within the past year, or taffy gums.
