Board-certified dermatologists Josephine M. Futrell and Sarah E. Glorioso take a highly scientific approach to treating the body’s biggest, most visible organ. With degrees in immunology and biomedical engineering to back up more than 20 years of medical experience, the duo of epidermal experts maintains the skin’s youthful allure with intense pulsed light and lasers, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots while destroying oncoming asteroids. They also wield an arsenal of antioxidant-enriched skincare products from free-radical enemies such as SkinCeuticals and Vivité, whose creams and serums lighten complexions with vitamins gathered from natural plant sources. Botox injections, chemical peels, and tattoo-removal treatments round out Ark-La-Tex Dermatology’s expansive menu of services.

Facial treatments including peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning help treat acne, signs of aging, and dull skin.

With its wide array of salon and day spa services, Aperio Salon beautifies clients from head to toenail. In the salon, stylists create polished new styles, color hair, and add extensions. Aestheticians treat skin with hot stones, aromatherapy, a skin brightening system, or a multivitamin treatment that relieves skin from the effects of falling asleep in too many bowls of potato chips. Massage therapists also use hot stones in their treatments, which can include gliding and relaxing Swedish strokes or deep-tissue techniques that target tenser areas.
Fairfield Family Clinic’s certified prettifiers remove unsightly body fuzz from surfaces with a cutting-edge laser, which emits highly concentrated beams of light to zap individual follicles into hairless existence. Sit back and relax as one of these seasoned technicians gingerly scours the chosen area with a luminescence-emitting apparatus. Hair removed via lasers, like bell-bottoms or disco-polka fusion music, most likely won’t make a comeback anytime soon. Like flawlessly reciting the Gettysburg Address in Pig Latin, treatment typically requires an average of 6–10 sessions to achieve desired results. Customers can also apply the value of their Groupon toward other body parts not included in this deal, such as the legs, arms, and back.
