So what’s all the hype about? When we reach puberty, our body is done creating fat cells. The cells we have can get bigger and hold more, but our body does not create more cells. So the idea is if we can kill the cells we have then we won’t get bigger!
There are three ways to reduce the size or number of fat cells in our bodies. We can heat the fat cells to cause their destruction, we can freeze the fat cells to cause their destruction or we can blast the fat cells with very specific wavelengths of laser light to cause their destruction. We teach all three types and the pros and cons of each!
