How does it work?
Using 1 mm cannula (or tube) inserted under the skin with a laser fiber within it that delivers energy to fat cells causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. The use of the laser also tightens the skin in the area. This is permanent fat removal.

You multiply the price per area times the number of areas and then add $1995 for a surgical fee and you have your total price.
