The Invisalign process strives to straighten crooked chompers without braces, instead opting for removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and doctor consultation, is used to create a 3-D model of mouth terrain, which paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost.
Spend some quality time not talking to your sweetie with the Be My Valentine special, which includes a couple's massage, bottle of wine, and complimentary rose ($199) in Beau Visage's handsome and spacious couple's massage room. Facial fans can try out a Fountain of Youth hydrating facial ($125) or an Under the Sea Facial ($125) with seaweed, cultivated from France's Bethany Coast, that contains 1,000 times more vitamins and minerals than anything grown in soil. Those looking to infiltrate high school to write the exposé that will seal their journalistic futures can peel away layers of dead face skin with a glycolic peel ($50) or a medical-grade peel ($120–$160). If you're more in the mood for a massage, a 90-minute European hot-stone therapy session ($120) will increase your relaxation and improve your blood flow with the penetrating heat of smooth basalt rocks. You can also cocoon yourself with a Slender Quest Body Wrap ($95) and emerge a firm, toned, sexy butterfly. Dudes, meanwhile, can enjoy being King for a Day (one of the Valentine's Day specials) with a gentlemen's facial and a sandalwood aromatherapy massage ($129). Beau Visage also offers airbrush tanning, microdermabrasion, men's body services, photorejuvenation, and more.
The staff at Luminous Spa & Wellness pampers guests with powerful beauty routines that summon pure serenity. During a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, the staff can also soothe headaches with a lavender-oil scalp treatment. Services like these embody the spa's commitment to total-body wellness, rather than just beauty and rest alone.
In addition to skincare, massage, and aesthetic laser treatments, the staff fights cellulite and signs of aging with innovative technology. Their Synergie Cellulite Reduction treatments help smooth and shape problem areas. Alternatively, i-Lipo sessions use non-invasive, cool laser technology to sculpt bodies into lean lines. A private workout room and infrared sauna are available for customers to detoxify.
