Though their evil purpose is to act as an invisible shield for the world's darkest secrets, infrared lasers have recently learned to harness their low frequencies for the human good. With today's Groupon, for $45 you get an iSLIM advanced infrared fat-burning treatment at MicroSpa in Apopka (a $99 value).
An iSLIM fat-burning treatment offers customers an opportunity to detoxify their bodies and zap fat and calories while not moving. The treatment relies on the principle of sudation, or increased sweating, wherein heat applied to the body turns fat into fatty acids that can be burned as energy while your body sweats to cool itself down. During this unconventional treatment, your body will be covered in a creamy layer of natural, essential oils. Next, you'll be comfortably swaddled like an artfully folded origami burrito into a metallic body wrap that uses infrared lasers to warm the body from within. As you recline in your shiny cocoon, the body glove acts as a second layer of skin, making your body work harder and burn more energy to sweat, thus burning calories, kick-starting metabolism, increasing circulation, and removing harmful toxins from your body. You'll emerge a slightly svelter human butterfly.
The treatment, which was developed in Paris and has been widely used in Europe for more than 15 years, has been said to burn up to 4,000 calories in one session and result in an average loss of 2–5 body fat percentage points per treatment, among other benefits. Your body-fat percentage will be measured before and after the treatment to illustrate iSLIM's sudden slimming effects. Be sure to eat a full meal approximately 60–90 minutes prior to the treatment, and arrive fully hydrated by consuming 4–6 glasses of water throughout the day.
Must be at least 21 years old.
As noted in Seminole magazine, Sona Patel is an avid spa enthusiast who noticed a lack of affordable options in the Orlando area. Her solution was MicroSpa's technology-driven treatments, which have earned acclaim from Orlando Home & Leisure. Cushy massage chairs with far-infrared heat help evict knots and improve circulation, and sweat-inducing iSlim body wraps aim to oust toxins and promote weight loss. During teeth-whitening treatments, techs use hydrogen peroxide gel and an LED blue light to make teeth as bright as a newscaster's precocious hamster.
