What You'll Get
Although smooth skin may be the mark of youth and beauty, it also makes forensic body printing impossible, leaving your skin free to commit crimes without getting caught. Efface your dermal fingerprint with today's Groupon: for $179, you get three VelaShape treatments on one area (a $1,020 value) and half off future treatments of that area at Isis Skin & Body in Oakland. Treatment areas include the abdomen, front or back of the thighs, inner or outer thighs, butt, back of the arms or neck, mid/upper back, and love handles.
An MD-operated facility, Isis Skin & Body transforms physiques, firming their façades and stripping away their excess volume with the help of gentle, non-invasive treatments such as VelaShape body contouring. Customers will undergo a 20-minutes consultation before beginning any treatments to determine the best course of action. Wielding an FDA-cleared device that combines infrared beams with a vacuum and mechanical massage, Isis's staff kneads away unwanted body fluff and undesirable dimpling. The VelaShape machine caters to clients with stubborn pockets of fat that have not left despite diet, exercise, or constant belittling; most areas require five treatments for the smoothest results. The painless, scar-free procedure results in no down time, allowing patients to score firmer skin without taking time off work.
Named for the Egyptian goddess revered for her beauty, Isis provides treatments aimed at everything from acne, aging skin, cellulite, varicose veins, and pores that leak glitter. The modern facility offers a calming, spa-like environment full of plush white armchairs and chaise lounges.

About Isis Skin & Body
At Isis Skin & Body, medical director Dr. Noha Aboelata grants her patients' desires for beauty with a gentle touch, exclusively performing noninvasive rejuvenation treatments that employ the latest advancements in aesthetic upkeep. The practice is split between laser-based and topical therapies that both remediate existing problems and stimulate of the body's natural healing mechanisms.
Lasers earn their keep and daily continental breakfasts with work in three principle areas: routing unwanted hair, healing nail fungus, and helping to firm and smooth contours all over the body. To ensure topical treatments are safe for all skin types, Dr. Aboelata handpicks the products used in each service, which range from custom acne-scar treatments to eight types of chemical peels. Online forms dotting the company's website encourage curious visitors to start their restorative journey with a free analysis by identifying their skin and body concerns from a list that will help the staff to suggest a fitting course of treatment.
In tribute to its eponymous Egyptian goddess, the white and gold spa takes rich decorating cues from ancient palace-inspired aesthetics and the advice of style-blogging mummies. Columns capped with gold lotuses rise up to the entry hall's high ceiling, and gilded folding screens backdrop chaise lounges covered in bolts of lustrous, eggshell-colored cloth.
