Going under the knife carries with it some risks, such as lengthy recovery times, large costs, and making the fork incredibly jealous. Avoid vengeful cutlery with today's Groupon: for $499, you get a nonsurgical liquid facelift at Bellagio Medical Spa and Vein Clinic in Chandler (a $1,299 value).
Dr. Alex Kim at Bellagio Medical Spa and Vein Clinic helps people combat the signs of aging with a duo of wrinkle-fighting injectables—Juvederm and a patient's own platelet-rich plasma. A 90-minute liquid facelift commences when the doctor draws two vials of blood from the patient's arm and spins them in a high-speed medical Tilt-a-Whirl. The doctor then harvests the beneficial plasma and expertly injects it, along with one syringe of Juvederm, into the troublesome furrows and creases on the face. This cocktail smoothes fine lines, plumps up tired flesh, and causes patients to mistake high-school yearbook photos for compact mirrors.
