Have you heard about the Zerona laser that has been FDA cleared to reduce inches with no pain, no surgery and no downtime? This might be the ideal solution to slimming down before your trip. Patients are losing between 3.6 to 5.5 inches and many are seeing even greater results when combined with a sensible diet and exercise program. If you start 2 weeks before your trip, you should be good to go.
