Cellulite can wiggle spontaneously, which can be a boon in a dance contest but a detriment when trying to write your resumé on a grocery store’s motion-activated doors. Stay still at will with today’s Groupon to Pacific Cielo in Rancho Santa Fe. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get one nonsurgical body-contouring treatment (a $450 value).
- For $180, you get two nonsurgical body-contouring treatments (a $900 value).
In a spacious facility flanked by Tuscan architecture, Pacific Cielo’s beauty professionals work to shrink away the appearance of unflattering cellulite with bipolar radio-frequency technology. During each 20- to 30-minute session, a local anesthetic numbs target areas such as the arms or abdomen before the contouring instrument heats subdermal tissues to siphon away retained fluids and stimulate collagen production.
The process improves the tone and texture of loose flesh deposited on the arms or abdomen by age, the experience of giving birth, or going as a marshmallow to a costume party. After the body-contouring procedure, patients can return to normal life without any downtime, and physiques remain professionally toned for up to six months.
Dr. Scott C. Sessions, medical director of Pacific Cielo, brings more than two decades of plastic-surgery experience to every treatment he oversees. This expertise helps him minimize the pain and swelling that can be associated with cosmetic procedures, allowing him to concentrate on cutting the correctly colored wire hidden under the skin. Along with his surgical team, Dr. Sessions smoothes complexions with skin tightening and facial rejuvenation and hides unsightly wrinkles with fat transfers and dermal fillers. Off the operating table, noninvasive options such as laser and radio-frequency techniques tighten and tone without the use of scalpels, saving them for making surrealist collages out of the waiting room's back issues of Time.
