Light comes in many forms—be it beautiful, like a rainbow, practical, like a laser, or awe-inspiring, like an applause sign’s first live studio performance. Harness the beautifying power of light with today’s Groupon to Vixen Aesthetics in Utica. Choose from the following options:
- For $129, you get an IPL photofacial treatment (a $300 value).
- For $199, you get two IPL photofacial treatments (a $600 value).
- For $799, you get six Zerona laser body-contouring treatments (a $2,000 value).
Under the direction of cosmetic-medicine expert Dr. Jerry Greib, the staff at Vixen Aesthetics harnesses carefully calibrated light energies to repair skin and free bodies from fat deposits. IPL photofacial treatments target broken capillaries and sun spots with high-frequency light, ridding faces of unwanted discoloration and blemishes in the shape of one’s least favorite Eastern European countries.
Alternatively, FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology is designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over waistlines, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
Vixen Aesthetics arose from a passion for healing people and caring for skin. Medical director Dr. Jerry Greib developed an interest in aesthetics while treating patients in the emergency room. Leann Griffin, a registered nurse and the CEO of Vixen, fueled her passion for skin rejuvenation after caring for patients in the critical-care and burn-intensive-care units. Together, these two helm a staff that beautifies clients with medical and nonmedical aesthetic procedures. Wrinkles relax after injections of Botox or Dysport, and facial fillers such as Artefill, Restylane, and Juvéderm work to restore fullness. The staff rejuvenates complexions with exfoliating microdermabrasions as well as more advanced treatments, such as carboxytherapy—the practice of injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide into the skin to improve the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and lingering marker mustaches. With the assistance of versatile laser systems, they can also remove hair, resurface skin, remove tattoos, and eradicate nail fungus.
