The highly trained staff at HLC Med harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer ($4,000–$7,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Some museums simply tell the history of their subject, but the Historical Society of Old Newbury actually plays a role in history. Located in a stately manse that's as much an exhibit as anything within its walls, "the Hist" is the modern incarnation of several preservation societies, some of which were founded before Thomas Jefferson's rough draft of the Declaration of Independence was autosaved. The museum is also home to a research library specializing in local genealogy and a photography collection of more than 14,000 images of a past age.
Newport Golf Club's 18-hole course sprawls across 143 verdant acres of the Sugar River valley, guiding players along distinct front and back nines with sections of rolling pastureland and other areas carved out of a forest of mature pine, oak, and cherry trees. The course was founded in 1920 as a nine-hole course that took advantage of the site's natural hills and running streams, and remained that way for 70 years. In 1989 the course was extended to its present length, with a back nine that intercepts the Sugar River at various points among the pine trees, mirrored ponds, and indigenous tribes of golf ball hunter-gatherers.
