The secret is a new advance in technology known as radiofrequency. You may be familiar with radiofrequency treatments such as Thermage.

LipoLite is a revolutionary laser-assisted fat removal that removes stubborn fat deposits to re-contour your chin, stomach, thighs, arms and other areas with no down time.

Patients typically drop two or more dress sizes after advanced body contouring.
