You’ve been working hard to keep a healthy diet and maintain a regular fitness routine. Opting for kale smoothies instead of ice cream, and doing burpees instead of lounging in front of the television. But when you look in the mirror, you discover the fat pockets are still firmly attached and those dimples look even deeper on the back of your legs. With all that sweat and determination, you’d be reaping the benefits by now, not contemplating hibernating the summer away.

Unfortunately, this can be incredibly frustrating. Hormonal shifts and genetic instructions tell your body where and how your fat loss will happen. This leaves you feeling out of control and discouraged about your progress.

I hate seeing my patients feeling so badly about their bodies, especially when they explain how hard they’ve been working to get in shape to build up their confidence. That’s why I created my SlimStarter procedure, which uses a combination of surgical treatments to give your body a boost when you’re feeling like throwing in the towel.

Intense lasers are used on the target areas in order to smooth and tighten the surface of the skin. By using Radio Frequency treatment to create “damage” to the dermis, the natural collagen production is stimulated and cell turnover occurs. The production of new collagen enables improved long-term skin texture and tone. But that’s just the surface of the treatment.

Fat pockets can leave unsightly dimpling on different areas of the body. With the use of Fat freezing technology, we can penetrate through layers of fat and decrease the size of the cells. The targeted fat cells are then excreted through urination and results slowly evolve over 3-6 months. This treatment is perfect for those who are feeling stuck and need a little help continuing to work to the body of their dreams!
