Kim Kardashian, who rarely talks about cosmetic procedures, revealed that she has just undergone a "painful but worthwhile" laser beauty treatment to have a slim waist.
In early August, Kim Kardashian shared a photo of her abdomen after being treated by Dr. Ashkan Ghavami at GPS Aesthetic non-surgical cosmetic hospital in Beverly Hills (California, USA), according to Insider.
“This is what changed everything. I used Morpheus to shrink my waistline. I think this is my favorite laser. It was painful but really worth it,” the TV star said. know.
Morpheus is a skin tightening, lifting and contouring procedure that can be performed on areas with wrinkles, pigmentation or acne scars, according to The Cosmetic Skin Clinic in London.

This cosmetic procedure combines microneedling and RF (radio frequency) technology to create a two-in-one total impact.
Aesthetician Lee Garrett says while laser treatments typically target the surface layer of the skin, radiofrequency waves can penetrate three layers of skin, providing more intensive treatment.
RF technology heats the subcutaneous tissues causing fat accumulation and contraction of connective tissues. Also, microneedling stimulates collagen production to tighten the skin’s surface.
Morpheus was recognized by the US Food and Drug Administration in August 2020. However, as this is a new technology, there is not any evidence of long-term effects recorded in the scientific literature.
Dermatologists estimate that each treatment lasts at least three sessions and costs around $1,800-2,000.
Kim Kardashian is said to have injected botox in her lips, eyebrows, and facial skin. However, the reality TV star did not respond to the plastic surgery rumors.
“I’m very concerned with appearance and beauty. I think I pay more attention to that than 90% of people on this planet,” she said.
Before publishing pictures of laser treatment, Kim went to check her body and showed off her “athlete” measurements with a stronger skeleton 93-97% than the average person.
“A year ago, my body fat percentage was 25%, and now it’s 18.8%,” Kim said.
