Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dimitry Likterev, the staff at myAbsoluteBody harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. Low-light lasers break down adipose tissue, releasing disintegrated lipids into the body where they can then be absorbed by the lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
