What You'll Get
Like cotton shirts and the heads of anthropologist adventurers, fat cells beg to be shrunk. Put voluminous cells in their place with today's Groupon: for $149, you get three VelaShape treatments on one body area at Elise Laser & Medical Spa in Sterling Heights (a $750 value).
Elise Laser & Medical Spa's noninvasive VelaShape combines bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light energy, negative pressure, and mechanical massage to eradicate subcutaneous fat. The virtually painless, downtime-free procedure begins when the machine's optical energy preheats a targeted area, after which a more precise heating increases metabolism of stored energy and shrinks fat cells. Vacuum action and specially designed rollers smooth out the skin and make clients realize their dreams of living in a car wash. Patients may notice gradual improvement in the focus area—such as thighs, buttocks, or abdomen—within six to eight weeks. In some cases, more than three sessions may be necessary to achieve desired results.

About Elise Laser & Medical Spa
Patients who visit Dr. William Massey at Elise Laser & Medical Spa know one thing: they won't be in for a long recovery period after undergoing one of his cosmetic procedures. That's because the doctor sticks to treatments that require minimal—if any—downtime, from photofacials and Botox to chemical peels and Aluma skin renewal. A particular attraction is fractional-laser skin resurfacing, a treatment that makes the skin seem firmer and decreases wrinkles after just 10–20 minutes.
