Humans maintain their bodies for the same reasons they maintain their houses: to keep the neighbors friendly and to disguise the fact that an alien lives inside them. Abduct unwelcome visitors with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get five Lumicell Touch cellulite treatments at Belledonne Spa in Brentwood (a $625 value).
The Lumicell Touch body-contouring machine uses three separate modalities to seek out cellulite and fat cells in the body with the intention of creating smoother, tighter skin. During the 45-minute sessions, a handheld mechanism with intermittent vacuum action grasps skin with suction, and built-in rollers rotate upon fatty cells to disperse cellulite and rumors of cellular layoffs. The suction also boosts circulation and oxygen flow, amplifying the lymphatic system and spurring the exportation of cellulite and toxins. The mechanism’s LED light-therapy function encourages epidermal tightening by stimulating collagen and elastin levels, positioning skin to stand in at movie theaters where screens have developed too many ripples.
Different clients may choose the same treatment from Belledonne Spa’s menu, but the spa’s focus on custom skin and body solutions ensures that no two experiences are quite alike. Though the massage menu includes specialized techniques for athletes and expectant moms, its two anchors are the Swedish and deep-tissue massages, each of which is tailored to clients’ preferred pressures.
The spa’s aestheticians match their nimble-fingered counterparts’ concern for customized care. Before embarking on a facial, they survey the skin’s topography to identify its specific needs. Then they pull from a wide array of therapies that include advanced microdermabrasion treatments, ultrasound technologies, and chemical peels that exfoliate as vigorously as skin will allow. Their therapies aren’t just skin-deep, however: Lumicell Touch body-contouring treatments work to reduce cellulite with a blend of collagen-boosting LED light, skin-smoothing rollers, and vacuums that suck up pennies lodged between back muscles.
