Achieving a smoother shape is a challenge almost as difficult as reading an entire dictionary or climbing a tree that’s covered in canola oil. Take an expert approach to slimming down or tightening up with today's Groupon: for $999, you get six Zerona laser treatments at Laser Lean in Chapel Hill (a $2,500 value).
During FDA-approved Zerona treatments at Laser Lean, certified, physician-supervised technicians noninvasively remove excess inches from curvaceous zones—including hips, buttocks, and upper arms—using cold lasers that uncork fat-cell pores and allow for the expungement of fatty content. During each of their six sessions, which incur no downtime, clients can read or nap beneath the comfortable laser apparatus for 40 minutes in an experience akin to relaxing inside a tanning bed or kicking back in a super villain's cozy lair. Patients should schedule all treatments to take place within a two-week span, as waiting more than 72 hours between visits may hinder results and allow fat to rebuild its demolished cells with brick rather than straw.
Pregnant and breast-feeding women and those with a history of heart, liver, or kidney disease should steer clear of Zerona treatments. Patients with diabetes or thyroid disorders may not experience desired results.
Laser Lean’s technicians specialize in two noninvasive contouring technologies: Zerona and Venus Freeze by VenusConcept. Designed to melt up to 9 inches off the midsection, Zerona treatments emulsify fat tissue with a cold laser that minimizes pain. Alternatively, the Venus Freeze machine combines multipolar radio frequency with magnetism to tighten and contour skin. This treatment specifically targets the face to leave cheeks and jawlines smoother than a baby dipped in chocolate.
