Dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm require injection by a steady, confident hand. Not only has Beautiful U Aesthetics’ nurse, Anne Hubbard, mastered the ministration of these cosmetic boosters, she's demonstrated the procedure on a live KARK 4 segment to illustrate the simplicity of the process and prove that she could do it while riding a unicycle and reciting the Cyrillic alphabet. Anne’s specialties range from skin-smoothing injectables to facial services such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. She can also apply permanent eyeliner above and below the peepers, enhancing clients’ natural features without the wastefulness of applying makeup every morning or using up a birthday wish on something besides preventing asteroid strikes.
Jolly Family Dentistry maintains mouths with precision and care, ensuring bright smiles, straight teeth, and breath redolent of mint and joy. During the consultation, the dentist will delicately explore oral recesses, noting problem areas for future improvement and placing tiny gold stars on parts of the mouth that are doing well. A series of photos is taken of the mouth for the office's records, streamlining future visits and providing material to blackmail stubbornly crooked teeth into coming clean. X-rays check for unseen tooth or gum decay and note the trajectory of errant wisdom teeth, guaranteeing time to remove the offending molar in the case of imminent impact. If mouths look as though they need more than a scrub down, the Groupon includes $1000 off Invisalign, getting teeth in line and giving them the confidence they need to finally strike up a conversation with that cute piece of gum that’s always hanging around the bicuspids. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment costs $4,995; this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
