While one-person candlelit dinners and solo weekend getaways are effective ways to love yourself, self-wooing is often stymied by the physical impossibility of whispering sweet nothings into your own ear. Lavish some attention on your form with today's Groupon: for $150, you get four GentleWaves skin treatments (a $400 value) from Dr. Bruce Freedman's team at Plastic Surgery Associates of Northern Virginia, located in McLean. In keeping with the practice's pursuit of beauty, some pages on the site feature the female form in its purest, least cloth-burdened state and, as such, should be entered with discretion.
Dr. Bruce Freedman and his team of body beautifiers offer a slew of rejuvenating skin and body services in a private, comfortable setting. Heal a weary carapace with four painless GentleWaves treatments, which employ noninvasive photomodulation to iron out wrinkles, shrink pores, fade pigmentation woes, and boost collagen production. The light-based treatment inspires face-flesh to appear smoother and act younger, with results growing more apparent over multiple sessions or on the basketball court (customers may buy up to two Groupons). The quick procedure is also downtime-free, letting clients parade their pampered pelt around the barbed-wire factory posthaste.
Plastic Surgery Associates of Northern Virginia
At Plastic Surgery Associates of Northern Virginia, Dr. Bruce Freedman calls on his Duke University School of Medicine degree and his NYU aesthetic-surgery fellowship to perform surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures with a steady hand. Dr. Freedman—who is also an assistant professor at Georgetown and has been published in more than 40 medical journals and textbooks—relies on a talented staff that includes licensed, registered nurses. Together, they perform such procedures as breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and face-lifts, as well as less invasive laser therapies and chemical peels to treat skin and remove hair. When not beautifying bodies, Dr. Freedman continues to advance his medical research, developing novel cosmetic and aesthetic techniques such as combining lasers with surgery or performing facials on amoebas.
