With i-lipo technology at its disposal, the staff members at Alterna Clinic provide their clients with a noninvasive means of slimming their silhouettes. While infrared lasers penetrate the skin and target fatty deposits, a vacuum-massage technique stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries the excess fat out of the body naturally. At the same time, the treatment boosts cell growth in the skin, which can minimize the appearance of cellulite. To complement these treatments, the staff specialists also conduct nutrition, wellness, and lifestyle coaching.
