What You'll Get
Humans have long frozen things to maintain their youthful verve, from flash-freezing fruit at the peak of ripeness to slushy-freezing the brain to preserve times-tables proficiency. Achieve a cool, youthful physique without bathing in frozen treats with today’s Groupon: for $299, you get one Zeltiq CoolSculpting treatment for one site in selected body areas, including a complimentary consultation, at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (a $700 value).
At the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, Drs. Burton and Reps Sundin employ years of professional experience to embellish bodies with advanced, noninvasive cosmetic procedures. After an initial visit for an in-depth medical consultation, patients return for an hour of treatment with the FDA-approved Zeltiq CoolSculpting system, which targets a selected site of stubborn body fat, cooling it like a concentrated beam of smooth jazz and leather jackets. Several days following the procedure, the cooled fat cells in the region begin a natural cell death, without injuring skin or other tissue. After one treatment, patients may see an average of 20% fat reduction in the treated site, preparing them to wriggle lithely through the tubes of children’s play places. To cover a full body area, patients typically require treatments on two to three sites. Full results can be seen between three and four months following the procedure.
