Despite their destructive cinematic depictions, most lasers are helpful, often found assisting slideshow presentations and playing DVDs for people who aren’t entertained by just staring at the shiny part. Let a laser do some good with this Groupon.

During 20-minute treatments, a technician guides the SmoothShapes hand piece over your choice of the arms, back of the thighs, buttocks, front of the thighs, or lower or upper abdomen. As one laser wavelength makes fat cells more permeable, another liquefies their contents as vacuum suction and mechanical massage shepherd the fat toward the body’s natural drainage channels. Clients may see results after the first few treatments, though SmoothShapes’ creators recommend a series of eight sessions scheduled twice a week for lasting results.<p>
Southwest Day Spa
On the tree-lined, bustling Beacon Street, a stately brownstone located at the St. Mary's T-Stop, three blocks from Fenway Park, and a 10-minute walk from the Longwood Medical area offers sanctuary from the frenetic outside world. Here, Southwest Day Spa cossets bodies and minds with more than 30 pampering spa treatments. Its lava-shell massage brushes bodies with polished shells from the Philippines that therapists have gently heated and combined with minerals, algae, salt water, and essential oils. The desert-heat body wrap, with its zinc compound, helps tone and smooth skin by scrubbing, wrapping, and then rinsing in a four-jet steam shower. The zinc compound is also an effective treatment for painful joints and muscles. Plant-stem-cell facials work to delay the appearance of aging much better than denial, and microcurrent technology fades wrinkles. Spa packages include special options for brides, couples, and those who, like NFL linebackers, just want to be pretty and pampered. Additionally, FDA-approved SmartLipo treatments take aim at stubborn fat cells, while laser hair removal banishes unwanted hair for all skin types.
