People with cellulite may wear long pants to cover it up, much like presidents wear suit jackets to hide bicep tattoos of Betsy Ross. Jettison restrictive wardrobes with today's Groupon: for $499, you get four SmoothShapes cellulite-reduction treatments at Lift Laser & Body in Schaumburg (a $1,200 value).
Dr. Jafer Joffrey and the medical technicians at Lift Laser & Body target unwanted cellulite with light energy and mechanical massage during SmoothShapes treatments. The SmoothShapes roller uses gentle suction to position skin under a beam of laser light whose heat works to melt away offending fat deposits and lost pats of butter. As a technician glides the handheld device over the hips, thighs, and buttocks, gentle kneading helps transport liquefied lipids out through the body's natural detoxification pathways. The noninvasive treatment requires no anesthesia, downtime, or burnt offerings of workout DVDs, and results may last up to six months. For maximum results, Lift Laser & Body recommends eight 20-minute sessions over the course of four weeks.
Lift Laser & Body
Sunlight streams through floor-to-ceiling windows in the waiting room at Lift Laser & Body, where a trio of doctors oversees aesthetic treatments powered by cutting edge technology. These procedures range from natural-looking plastic surgery such as tummy tucks and breast enhancements to less invasive procedures. Noninvasive treatments include SkinTyte, which relies on broadband light to get clients firmer and younger looking skin. Lift Laser & Body also offers rejuvenating ProFractional laser treatments for faces that can make patrons look younger, much like not calling a MP3 player “walkman.”
