What You'll Get
Unlike many mammals, humans boast the freedom to dispel unwanted fat cells without hibernating in a cave or outrunning stick-wielding Teddy Roosevelts. Eliminate unwanted poundage the people way with today's Groupon: for $999, you get one area of SmartLipo at Red Bamboo Medi Spa in Clearwater (up to a $3,500 value). Use today’s deal to vaporize fat cells from a single area of your choice: neck and chin, upper arms, upper or lower abdomen, waist and flanks, bra line, inner or outer thighs, or inner knees.
Red Bamboo Medi Spa contours the human form using SmartLipo, a minimally-invasive procedure first brought to Pinellas County by Red Bamboo's Doctors of Distinction Laszlo Teleszky and Francis Toscano, and this procedure helped the medi spa garner the 2010 award for Best Aesthetic Enhancements from Tampa Bay Metro magazine. During a pre-op consultation, the same board-certified physician who will carry out the procedure explains what to expect during the treatment, answers any questions, and sets patients at ease with well-timed knock-knock jokes.
The treatment uses safe, reliable Cynosure laser energy delivered through a fiber-optic thread to melt fat cells into mashed-potato-like proportions, and the fat cells are then removed through suction. The procedure also tightens skin, leaves minimal scarring, and requires very little downtime in most patients. Unlike somnambulist car salesmen, clients are wide awake the whole time, listening to music, sipping tea, or relaxing to the touch of a massage therapist. Post-procedure, the physician will answer any lingering questions and give you a private cell phone number for direct contact and late-night phone pranks. Also included with this deal is a post-op follow-up, any necessary lab work, up to four post-op ultrasounds, and one compression garment, which is worn for two weeks.
Comfort abounds throughout Red Bamboo, from the adroit hands of the experienced staff to the tranquil atmosphere of the office, which draws inspiration from its Asian-themed décor and a lava-lamp mentor. Therapeutic stone fountains and plush furniture abut red-toned walls, and a windowed view of an outdoor zen garden enhances the serene ambience.
Additional areas may be added for $1,500 each, paid directly to Red Bamboo.

About Red Bamboo Medi Spa
Licensed aesthetician Raye Toscano and her husband, Dr. Francis Toscano, operate Red Bamboo Medi Spa, a facility that marries aesthetic treatments with nonsurgical, medical-grade therapies. Their services, which recently garnered the spa a Best Aesthetics Practice award at The Aesthetics Show in Las Vegas as well as recognition in Tampa Bay Business Journal's 2012 Best in the Biz spa category, cosmetically enhance both the face and body. SmartLipo mimics liposuction treatments with fiber-optic lasers, and a four-layer face lift topically banishes dead skin with enzymes, glycolic acid, and mini exorcisms.
