Though its primary purpose remains disrupting college lectures and movie screenings, laser light has also proved to be useful in the precise slimming of human bodies. Today's smooth-making Groupon lets you reap the benefits of the world's favourite repurposed supervillain weapon: for $79, you get one LipoLaser treatment (a $300 value) at either of Edmonton Laser Centre's two locations.
A non-invasive and nearly painless procedure, LipoLaser reduces the appearance of body fat by focusing a low-level laser on fatty cells, allowing wavelengths to shimmy and shake excess water, fatty acids, and glycerol from the shrinking cells. Problem pudge—whether on arms, back, or tush—is reshaped and defined in 40 minutes, the amount of time it takes to prepare 40 servings of minute rice. Although many patients may look and feel sleeker after the first treatment, the typical protocol for ultimate slimness involves two to three treatments in one week.
Edmonton Laser Centre
Winners of a 2009 Consumers' Choice Award, the trained techs at Edmonton Laser Centre harness the power of lasers to battle unwanted hair and superfluous curves. Staff members carefully calibrate lasers to focus in on target areas, leaving skin to bask in automated cooling functions that keep sensitive complexions and snowman patients comfortable. Free consultations and patch tests allow technicians and clients to evaluate their options before proceeding with treatment. For nonlaser polishing, LED and chemical-peel facial treatments soften lines and boost collagen production to leave visages with a more toned, youthful appearance.
