Unlike marble statues and already-poured waffles, humans have the ability to change their own shape. Alter your outward appearance with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get three VelaShape treatments at BodySculptMD (a $675 value). All three treatments must be used on one of the following areas:
- Back of the thighs
- Front of the thighs
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Bra line
- Love handles<p>
Practicing medicine for more than 28 years, BodySculptMD founder Dr. Janice Vaughn uses technological advances to target and smooth cellulite. Dr. Vaughn’s team helps trim stubborn inches during the course of three VelaShape sessions, employing the FDA-cleared medical treatment to temporarily reduce troublesome paunch. During each 30-minute session, VelaShape’s threefold system of bipolar radio frequencies, infrared-light energy, and mechanical massage combines like the thoughts of a three-headed dog to heat and smooth adipose tissue, increasing lymphatic drainage and reducing the size of fat cells.
Applicable to all skin types, the noninvasive treatment’s heat, vacuum, and mechanical rollers may feel akin to that of a warm, deep-tissue massage. While results vary, VelaShape can produce an average of 0.5–3 inches in circumferential reduction during a series of treatments, with visible results in as few as four treatments. Groupon customers can apply a 50% discount toward additional VelaShape sessions to be used on the same treatment area in an effort to further whittle figures and elicit catcalls from anthropomorphic cats. For optimal results, treatments should be scheduled every 10–14 days.
At BodySculptMD, Dr. Janice Vaughn focuses on women's health by addressing the mind, body, and spirit from the cells up. She offers medical and weight-loss services including bioidentical hormone therapy, metabolic testing, and customized weight-loss programs to reeducate bodily systems and prevent or reverse cell breakdown. To enhance outsides, Dr. Vaughn also performs noninvasive aesthetic procedures with devices such as ReFirme, VelaShape, and Zerona. The laser- or radiofrequency-based treatments are designed to tighten skin and reduce fat and cellulite, and, like the best power naps, require little to no downtime.
