The Bassin Center of Plastic Surgery's skilled reshapers sculpt clients' figures with Aqualipo, a water-based fat-removal system that sneaks under the skin to steal away lipid collections from designated bodily geography. During each procedure, a cosmetic surgeon photographs, marks, and sketches abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Procedures require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect more instant results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and transmitting ham-radio signals uncontrollably—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joel R. Studin of Premier Medical P.C. banishes the signs of aging with modern medical treatments, including FDA-approved Botox treatments. A steady-handed skinsmith injects wrinkled facial surfaces with the youth-reviving tonic, which blocks nerve impulses and slows down hyperactive muscles, shipping skin creases off to dwell on a shar pei's forehead for up to four months. The roughly 20-minute nonsurgical treatment results in little to no downtime, but experts recommend avoiding lying down and rigorous activity for a few hours post-injections. Patients will notice smoother, younger-looking skin in two weeks—the regulation time period for an official game of Axis and Allies.
It generally takes about six laser treatments to completely banish unwelcome hair, which is why you are conveniently able to combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions on one area. Those who don't want to go completely body bald but just want to thin out and lighten up a particularly hairy situation can simply get fewer sessions than the magic six. Upon your first visit, a clinic director will help set up your individualized treatment regimen to establish the frequency and number of visits necessary to achieve desired results. Use this initial consultation to ask pertinent questions or to swap apple-streusel recipes with your lasersmith.

Driven by more than just a love of healthy food, Italian-born Massimo Guerrieri draws from a background in anatomy, pharmacology, and aesthetics as he helps patrons enhance their quality of life. Over the years, Massimo created his own thermal-wrap technology, the Thermal-Wrap5000, which was featured in Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal and which he still uses today as part of his spa's weight-loss program. On select nights, he hosts free lectures that teach the benefits of using his thermal-wrap method in conjunction with a balanced Mediterranean diet.
With pads wrapped around the torso, hips, and thighs, the Thermal-Wrap5000 machine relies on gentle conductive heating to encourage perspiration, calorie burning, and the reduction of local fatty deposits. Visitors undergo treatments inside colorfully lit, wood-paneled suites crafted in Florence, which put minds at ease faster than seeing your face on a Not Wanted poster. In addition to weight loss, Vivinlinea's staff also performs spa treatments, soothing complexions with essential oils and microdermabrasion and coaxing out tension with shiatsu and hot-stone massages.
