Light comes in many forms—be it beautiful, like a rainbow, practical, like a laser, or awe-inspiring, like an applause sign’s first live studio performance. Harness the beautifying power of light with today's Groupon: for $1,199, you get a consultation and six Zerona laser treatments at Dr. Pelias Cosmetic Surgery and Lifestyle Center (a $2,400 value).
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Marilyn E. Pelias, the staff at this beauty-boosting lifestyle center harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During 40-minute sessions, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus as it glides low-light lasers over their waistlines, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The non-invasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
Technicians perform the six treatments within 72 hours of one another in a span of two weeks. Patients can boost results with healthful eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
Marilyn Pelias, MD Cosmetic Surgery Center
The seasoned surgeon, Dr. Marilyn Pelias's tries to minimize the downtime following her procedures, thus enabling clients to resume work and daily activities with little hassle. Even before her treatments begin, she puts guests at ease. During pretreatment consultations, she answers questions and describes her services thoroughly to educate her patients.
Dr. Pelias's surgical treatments range from minor changes such as brow lifts and earlobe repair all the way to tummy tucks and liposuction. With the S-Lift, a faster, simpler alternative to a traditional face-lift, she reduces the appearance of sagging skin on the neck and lower face. Nonsurgical sessions often incorporate lasers, which the doctor uses for skin resurfacing, body contouring, or the removal of body hair, spider veins, and tattoos that say I Love My Body Hair and Spider Veins. She also uses skincare products from Obagi to complement chemical peels and microdermabrasion sessions. Dr. Pelias doesn't do it all on her own, though. Aesthetician Shana Smith jumps in with the assist on all matters beauty-related, including corrective make-up, microdermabrasion, and hair-removal.
