When used for good, lasers can improve complexions, but when used for evil, they can undermine superheroes during important PowerPoint presentations. Fight the villainy of imperfect skin with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a photofacial at Urban Retreat Day Spa & Salon (a $395 value).

At Urban Retreat Day Spa & Salon, certified laser technicians zero in on skin imperfections with beams from a Sciton laser. Powered by BroadBand Light technology, the laser masks skin imperfections, such as acne scars and sun damage, by stimulating collagen growth more effectively than watering the face and forcing it to nap in patches of sunlight on the carpet. While laser light targets blemishes, the device’s photothermal energy output diffuses skin redness and excess melanin, which induces pigmented lesions that spell out the code to the customer's safe-deposit box.

Urban Retreat Day Spa & Salon

The staff at Urban Retreat Day Spa & Salon makes pampering their clients a top priority, a mission that becomes evident the moment patrons enter the ultraluxe space. Picture windows overlook the Houston skyline, which, in turn, casts a soothing blue glow over the dove-gray walls and mirrored styling stations. There, a staff of accomplished stylists brings a vast experience of working New York Fashion Week Shows and educating for L’Oreal’s luxury brand Kerastase & Shu Uemura and Aloxxi’s Italian Color. Across from the salon, a row of plush couches and golden soaking tubs line the nail studio, which also offers pristine city views as trained nail artists wield eco-friendly products to paint fingers and toes. A conjoining hallway dangling with crystal chandeliers leads guests to Urban Retreat’s spa, where certified technicians discreetly perform massages and laser hair-removal treatments, as well as facial services bolstered by physician-grade Société Clinical Skincare products.
