How Does it Work?
Tiny needles are used to insert the serum directly into the targeted areas. In a result, the fat deposits start to wear away while increasing the fat reduction process. Thanks to the natural reproduction process, the skin will re-establish the smoother and fine surface like free of fat. This process takes about 2 months to complete. Commonly, it takes 3-4 treatments for one area to be completely treated.
