Cascade Medspa and Laser Centre's licensed staff, led by reconstructive surgeon Kurtis Waters, MD, evicts dead skin from the epidermis in a three-step process of analysis and microdermabrasion therapy. The one-hour skin-renaissance appointment begins in the tranquil, cream-colored consultation room, where bodies grace plush chairs and clients confer with a professional about any skincare questions or philosophical quandaries. After the consultation, the Visia Complexion Analysis System zeros in to survey the skin and illustrate a meticulously detailed 3-D image from which its conditions and demands can be deciphered (a $40 value). A diamond-tip wand then glides over the skin's surface to stimulate collagen and remove dead cells, buffing and beautifying body paper and forging territory for new skin cells to pitch tents and tell campfire tales of their ancestors (a $99 value).
