Chronically sucking in excess belly flab to appear trimmer can lead to shortness of breath, exhaustion, and disqualification from hula-hoop competitions. Slim down and breathe easy with today’s Groupon: for $799, you get six Zerona treatments at Skin Deep Spa in West Bloomfield (an up to $2,200 value).
Touted by such shows as The Doctors and Rachel Ray, FDA-approved Zerona treatments shape skin with cold temperature lasers that serve to break up overcrowded fat-cell parties. The noninvasive, nonsurgical process attacks pockets of fat in hips, waists, or bacon-gelled hair, harnessing laser beams to create small pores in pudgy cell walls. Emulsified fat is released through the tiny holes, and the body naturally expels it with no bruising, swelling, or tissue damage. Clients can typically lose an average of three to four inches of unwanted girth and gain a friend in the gentle robot visage of the Zerona machine.
Each lipid-lifting session lasts 40 minutes, and the suggested six-session treatment schedule runs over a two-week period. Nestled into the a sleek, comfy confines of Skin Deep Spa, patients can find Zerona zen by lounging for 20 minutes of treatment on their back before flipping for 20 minutes on their front while freely napping, texting, or participating in cross-continental telepathic mahjong tournaments.
Though Skin Deep Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Skin Deep Spa
With a newly minted medical degree and ability to pronounce caduceus, a young Dr. Michael W. Gray charged headlong onto the osteopathic scene. After a stint as the chief resident at Midwestern University's Chicago Osteopathic Medical Center and a fellowship at Northwestern University, the already accomplished plastic surgeon packed up his snake and staff and headed for the Pleasant Peninsula. Today, when he's not discussing advancements in plastic surgery on ABC and NBC local news, he brings his years of experience to The Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa where he and his staff perform a full line of surgical and nonsurgical medical procedures.
At Skin Deep Spa, Gray practices a less-aggressive approach to cosmetic procedures with noninvasive treatments in a space designed to put clients at ease. Zerona cold-laser systems and the pulsed energy of Venus Legacy gently smooth away cellulite, for example. The in-house Beauti Bar area, manned by licensed aestheticians, sells Skin Deep beauty products designed by Dr. Gray himself to augment the cosmetic treatments. The zen-garden-inspired décor infuses the spa with earth-toned tiles, leafy green plants, the sound of rippling water flowing over stones in fountains, and ornate wooden chests filled with meditating yogi masters.
