Faces can become troubled when deprived of contact with the finer things in life, and may go on to embezzle caviar or start slap fights with butlers. Give your mug a luxurious touch with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a Champagne & Roses facial at Lana's Beauty Zone in Los Altos (a $125 value).
Against an olfactory backdrop that hints at distant meadows of flowers, licensed aesthetician Svetlana “Lana” Tokar draws upon more than 17 years of experience to improve the quality of skin with relaxing facials. During the 75-minute Champagne & Roses facial, extracts of Bulgarian roses and champagne grapes increase the skin's elasticity and cause claymation stunt doubles to worry about their job security. A facial steam bath with grape and seaweed enzymes opens pores, allowing the specialist to perform any necessary extractions. A facial massage paints even strokes of champagne-infused lotion across cheeks to lure out tension, and a lifting mask leaves patrons looking their best for proud struts or facial imprints in freshly poured sidewalks.
Lana’s Beauty Zone
She may offer a spectrum of services—facials, massages, waxing—but Lana Tokar certainly has a specialty. The veteran aesthetician works tirelessly to battle the signs of aging inside her namesake spa, employing all the tools and tricks garnered through her more than 17 years of experience. One such tool—the HydraFacial—is a favorite in the celebrity community, enjoying the same popularity as strongly worded letters to the academy. Using a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration, the treatment effectively diminishes acne-causing dirt and oil, or grants aging skin new life in the form of a smoother complexion.
Lana also doles out nine other facial treatments, and a slew of slimming body wraps laden with organic ingredients, such as seaweed and peppermint. Clients leave waxing sessions smoother than an oil slick, and armed with any one of Lana’s own beauty products, such as a pineapple enzyme scrub or makeup remover.
