Humans maintain their bodies for the same reasons they maintain their houses: to keep the neighbors friendly and to disguise the fact that an alien lives inside them. Care for your cover with today's Groupon: for $185, you get three VelaShape cellulite-reducing treatments at Salon Secrets Spa in Kennett Square (a $1,200 value).
Salon Secrets Spa's tightening technicians aim to reduce the appearance of cellulite and body circumference with the FDA-approved VelaShape firming device, which uses a combination of radio frequency, infrared light, suction, and mechanical massage. Certified plastic surgeon Carmen DiMario helms or supervises the procedure, gingerly rubbing the warmth-infusing apparatus over problem areas as clients daydream about their future selves wearing shorts, sleeveless shirts, and glass pants with confidence. The gentle vacuum and massage action work to smooth out skin crinkles and effectively distribute heat, which helps increase lymphatic drainage and reduce the size of fat cells. Treatment requires little to no downtime, and, much like writing a signature on an etch-a-sketch, patients typically require at least four treatments to achieve desired results.
Salon Secrets Spa
When Pamela Troyan opened Salon Secrets Spa in 1993, she set out with a clear goal: to provide clients with a refuge from their daily pressures via the best possible salon and spa experience. She staffed her salon with highly trained stylists and technicians, many of whom studied at elite academies such as Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, and Aveda. She also enrolled Salon Secrets Spa as a certified Aveda Signature Salon, meaning that all of their services (except nail coloring) would employ all-natural, organic Aveda products. With the salon fully staffed and stocked with elite stylists and luxe products, it was time to open. Since then, not much has changed: Pamela still oversees a team of well-educated stylists and technicians who’ve developed a loyal following of repeat customers and amateur paparazzi. Stylists customize looks with organic Aveda color services, as well as mani-peds, paraffin treatments, waxing, and Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions. The spa staff soothes bodies with facials, peels, and microdermabrasion, as well as massages and body wraps. The med spa also beautifies patients with cosmetic services such as skin rejuvanation, VelaShape cellulite reduction, and spider-vein treatments performed or supervised by a certified plastic surgeon.
