Protecting yourself from the sun and eating right can help prevent wrinkles, but nothing can stop Mother Nature from smooshing your face together while you sleep. Reverse her wrinkly wrath with today's Groupon: for $99, you get two VelaShape treatments or three microdermabrasion treatments at the Institute of Facial & Cosmetic Surgery in Murray (up to a $225 value). VelaShape treatments are valid for the following areas: abdomen, buttocks, front thighs, or back thighs.
Under the guidance of licensed cosmetic plastic surgeons, the Institute of Facial & Cosmetic Surgery's adroit aestheticians refurbish façades with noninvasive treatments. During the VelaShape procedure, a handheld wand traces body contours, deploying bipolar radio frequency and infrared-light energy to heat up tissues in an effort to increase metabolism, aid lymphatic drainage, and detect signs of freeloading snowmen hiding deep within the dermis. Vacuum suction and massage further heat up high-priority body swatches during the 45-minute sculpting session. Most clients require four VelaShape treatments scheduled about a week apart, but this Groupon will get customers on their way to a cellulite-free silhouette.
Alternatively, microdermabrasion gently buffs away dry, damaged upper layers of skin to reveal the unblemished flesh and winning lottery numbers just beneath the surface. The appearance of fine lines, mild acne scarring, and large pores fades under the scouring crystals of the hand tool. Following the first 60-minute session, clients can traipse out of the clinic with skin shiny enough to deflect laser beams back into the eyes of arch nemeses.
Institute of Facial and Cosmetic Surgery
At the Institute of Facial and Cosmetic Surgery, cosmetic surgeons Brent D. Kennedy and Steven Constantine use their expertise to bolster patients' appearances. Dr. Kennedy, who holds both a medical and a dental degree, established the institute in 1988 to he train doctors from across the country in a continuing-education fellowship program. He also shares his extensive knowledge as a clinical associate professor of aesthetic maxillofacial surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, and has seen his surgical techniques published in several medical journals and textbooks. His colleague, Dr. Constantine, combines his experience in surgical procedures with a deep-seated desire to get to know his patients and witness the positive mental transformation that follows the physical one.
In the 7,000-square-foot state-licensed surgical facility—which offers overnight stays and 24-hour nursing care—the duo performs a variety of procedures, ranging from face-lifts and tummy tucks to laser skin resurfacing. A master aesthetician is on hand to care for skin with anti-aging GlyMed Plus and Obagi products.
