Slimming Spa Treatments
Bioslimming Wrap at The Beach Tanning Salon and Spa, Phoenix, 602.218.8627
A secret weapon among the Beverly Hills crowd, this two-stage process incorporates active gels and creams that rev up circulation and firm the skin while you relax on a treatment bed. First the therapist takes measurements and then applies a detoxing cream and slimming agents that activate fat elimination. You’ll relax while the products work for about 40 minutes during which time, you can opt for a mini facial. Next, an intensely cold gel is applied over-top the first layer giving skin a final 20-minute detoxification boost. High concentrations of caffeine work in cooperation with plant and algae extracts and hot and cold thermal agents to diminish the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, and the treatment is most effective if done in a series. Post-treatment measurements are taken to track success. The cost is $200 for the full body and $100 for the lower body only.

Synergie Body Massage at The New Well, Phoenix, 602.490.0305
Ah, finally a fat treatment that really sucks – sucks away fat, that is. This treatment uses a process of vacuum massage to stimulate collagen fibers and connective tissue to reduce cellulite and body measurements. You’ll slip into a form-fitting spandex bodysuit and lie comfortably on a treatment table as the therapist glides the device across problem areas. The device deeply massages through a vacuuming action at various strengths. The treatment takes about 45 minutes and is $89 for one treatment or $899 for a 16-session package.

SmoothShapes at Abloom MedSpa, Glendale, 623.691.8319
A high-tech solution that specifically targets cellulite, this treatment uses a process called photomology that incorporates mechanical manipulation with dynamic laser and light energy to target dimpling caused by enlarged fat cells. The laser helps to break up the fat while rollers that use a vacuum-type suction help to eliminate it through the lymphatic system. The FDA-approved process takes about 15 minutes per area with packages starting at $1,200 including a complimentary consultation. Treatment protocol is eight sessions, twice a week for four weeks.
