For too long, the gentle laser has been forced into a mind-numbing existence of reading an endless number of bar codes and destroying planets. Give laser light a much-deserved career change with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a photofacial treatment for the face at Advanced Aesthetics Med Spa (a $200 value).
Advanced Aesthetics Med Spa's staff of licensed aestheticians touch up visages with noninvasive photofacial treatments performed under the medical supervision of Dr. Tracy Hankins. Each 30-minute procedure begins with a face-painting session that decorates chin and cheekbones alike with a topical anesthetic as well as a layer of clear gel. Aestheticians then focus the Syneron Aurora intense pulsed light laser's gaze upon the patient's face, bombarding the skin with laser-light energy designed to minimize the appearance of brown spots and broken capillaries. Treatments conclude with a thorough cleansing that also includes a sunscreen application and a casually administered double high-five.
Advanced Aesthetics Salon
At Advanced Aesthetics Salon, guests find a med spa, a salon, and a boutique in one convenient location. There, a team of board-certified plastic surgeons and registered nurses oversee cosmetic injections and wield lasers to evict unwanted hairs or no-longer loved tattoos. Chemical peels are also administered under the umbrella of the med spa, resurfacing the skin with ingredients such as salicylic or lactic acids. Meanwhile, the salon sees to the tending of hair and nails, as skilled hands create formal ‘dos, craft new styles, and help correct the results of this year’s let-your-child-be-your-stylist day. After enjoying a facial or relaxing mani-pedi, guests can peruse a selection of clothing, accessories, and gifts to add a finishing touch to their new look, or stock up on brand-name hair and skincare products by brands such as Pureology, Obagi, and Skinceuticals to help maintain salon and spa-like results at home.
