A glowing complexion can be a sign of healthy skin or a sign that you fell asleep near a trashcan fire. Brighten up with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $39 for one microdermabrasion treatment or chemical peel (up to a $150 value)
- $59 for two microdermabrasion treatments or chemical peels (up to a $300 value)
- $99 for three microdermabrasion treatments or chemical peels (up to a $450 value)
A diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatment gently sloughs away the face's outer layer of dead skin, revealing smoother, brighter complexions. Alternatively, choose from five types of chemical-exfoliation peels. An enzyme peel uses extracts from fruits to help clear up the skin, whereas a salicylic peel cleanses pores to help reduce acne. Glycolic peels at 30% or 60% strength can lighten skin tone while fading signs of aging. Or, a modified Jessner peel combines different acids and extracts designed to combat redness, blemishes, and lines.
This Groupon also entitles customers to a 50% discount on their first premium facial (normally priced at $99; $49.50 with discount).
FaceToFace Spa at Avery Ranch
As she relates in a 2011 profile in Miss A, FaceToFace Spa's Jenny Abraham wrote herself a unique prescription in 2006: monthly facials, for the next five years. Abraham had suffered severe cystic acne since she was 15 years old, and the breakouts had crippled her self-esteem to the point where they seemed to even eclipse her accomplishments as a registered nurse. The regime restored her complexion's health, so she opened the spa in March 2011 to share her methods with her clients, just as kindergartners are taught to share their toys with others and their thoughts with Twitter.
Skin consultations are the jumping-off point for each treatment, which could take the shape of a topical therapy or an intervention with lasers or mechanical exfoliators. Nine peels, however, are the house specialty. Abraham mixes fruit enzymes or lactic acid to heal mild rosacea and promote cellular regeneration, and she blends more aggressive chemical formulas to clear actinic keratosis and diminish signs of aging. For all the face and body treatments, the staff relies on Dermalogica and GloTherapeutics products, which have been engineered without animal testing and eschew irritants such as perfume and skunk stink. Massage therapists take a holistic approach to beauty by relieving stress, and cosmetologists attend to the finishing touches with Lavish Lashes extensions and Jane Iredale cosmetics.
