Humans trust technology to make them beautiful, which is why most people cut their hair with riding lawnmowers and brush their teeth with exposed wiring. Harness high-tech beautification with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 60-minute anti-cellulite slimming treatment at O Spa (a $120 value) in Brooklyn or Garden City.
The staff at O Spa shapes figures and tones skin using nonsurgical and noninvasive body-slimming treatments. Employing a vibratory endermatic system, O Spa's one-hour anti-cellulite slimming treatment caresses the skin with parallel and perpendicular strokes intended to soften trapped toxins and trigger the exodus of fluids in the skin and subcutaneous fat. The system's different applicators conform to the natural curves and ankylosaurus-esque tail clubs of the body, gently stretching the vertical connective fibers and helping to reduce dimpling and increase blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. Bamboo shoots sprout at different locations around the spa, which features textured stone walls and treatment rooms bathed in hues of purple, amber, and mauve. Before and after the treatment, guests don plush robes and slippers that keep bodies warm and dry during indoor thunderstorms.
The skilled technicians at all of O Spa's three beauty havens focus on fostering whole-body well-being as they tend to skin with more than 10 treatments, including more than 10 massage modalities. Advanced med-spa treatments include laser hair removal with the Eterna Giovinezza by Quanta System, which destroys follicles at the root with its heated rays in 15-minute to two-hour sessions. Permanent-makeup sessions focus on defining facial features with cosmetic tattoos. The areas are first covered with a topical anesthetic to make the experience more comfortable before a permanent-makeup artist inks the lids with faux eyeliner, fills in the brows, or creates the illusion of full lips by tattooing "I Heart Mom" around them.
