Body sculptors, like marble sculptors, strive to create beauty, carve away unnecessary material, and long to see their work permanently displayed in a hotel lobby. Get into fine form with today's Groupon: for $179, you get three VelaShape body-contouring sessions at Compliments at a Hilton Salon & Spa (a $1,500 value).
Compliments' licensed staff harnesses the transformative powers of the noninvasive VelaShape system to whittle away unwanted body mass. The procedure's bipolar radiofrequencies and infrared light radiate pulses of heat at targeted areas, while the rollers of a mechanical massage smooth out skinscapes like an all-terrain zamboni. The heat transfers through layers of skin, helping facilitate lymphatic drainage and the metabolism of stored energy, which can lead to shrinkage of cellulite-forming fat cells and chambers. After the procedures, clients have reported remodeled stomachs and hips with skin surfaces firm enough to play racquetball on. Each of the treatments—one 60-minute starter and two 45-minute follow-ups—have no downtime so patients can get right back into their regular activities.
Compliments at A Hilton Salon & Spa
The sound of a glass-wall waterfall lends a zen-like feel to Compliments at A Hilton Salon & Spa. Inside, a team of aestheticians, stylists, and massage therapists stands ready to pamper and polish. Stylists call upon the knowledge gleaned from ongoing monthly training sessions as they craft custom looks with cuts and coloring treatments. Technicians point the way toward pipeless, sanitized whirlpool tubs and heated massage chairs where manicures, microdermabrasion treatments, and other skincare services vivify complexions. The spa also offers airbrush tanning and waxing, as well as extended evening hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Named after owner and stylist Alison Hilton, the boutique is affiliated neither with Hilton Hotels and Resorts nor World War II–code-breaking mathematician Peter John Hilton.
