Adora's team of trained physicians, nurses, aestheticians, and laser gurus rejuvenates complexions and abates damaged epidermises with a plethora of skincare services. Using Physician's Choice chemical peels ($100), skilled skin artisans paint faces with a blend of naturally occurring fruit acids that obliterate dead skin cells, remove the top layer of skin, and leave skin as smooth as an olive-oiled velvet salesman, all with only mild discomfort and no downtime. Meanwhile, trained technicians cleanse faces and apply SkinMedica's Vitalize Peel ($100), a blend of alpha-hydroxy and retinoic acids that helps even out most skin types and fade age spots into oblivion. Clients may experience mild discomfort during the 20-minute procedure and should refrain from skin-irritating activities such as sweating and sweating in a pool of hot sauce for three days following the procedure. Today's Groupon can also be used as a $100 credit toward other services, such as laser hair removal on the upper lip and chin ($110) or bikini line ($150).

At Segal Vein and Laser, experienced staff members help patients vanquish blemishes with five weeks of safe and effective Blu-U acne treatments. Harnessing the restorative powers of a targeted blue light wavelength, skin specialists oust the tyrannical bacteria that cause acne and impulsive fish-faces. Treatments, which clients undergo twice per week, last about 17 minutes. Patients typically experience no amount of discomfort as the Blu-U technology gradually shoos away mild-to-moderate acne, whiteheads, and blackheads. After each treatment session, an SPF moisturizer replenishes light-washed pores. At the end of five weeks, patients possess a clearer visage with less redness, reduced acne inflammation, and fewer bulls-eye targets for flying pies.
Dr. Henry Ngai was an early adopter of IPL, introducing the equipment into his cosmetic practice in 1991. Today, he continues to stay ahead in the industry by constantly seeking out new technologies.

Born with mid-back scoliosis, missing discs in his lower back, and a reverse curve of the neck, Steve Butler endured his fair share of pain growing up. He understood firsthand—after seeing his father and sister undergo surgeries for similar ailments—that modern medicine was still not good enough. As he struggled with intense headaches, blackouts, and enough pain to keep him from walking for long periods of time, he began to explore alternatives, including Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and chiropractics—all to no avail. The answer, as it turned out, was all in his breath.
Today, Butler performs his specialized back-healing methods at his aptly named studio, The Backhealer. His method? In the simplest terms, Butler instructs his clients to lie down and breathe. By combining concise breathing techniques with pressure applied to specific tissues and muscles, Butler is able to help clients regain flexibility in their hips and back, and ultimately eliminate pain. He also combines the breathing and massage techniques with a series of exercises designed to reform the way the body moves and behaves, which in turn helps to reduce the chance of having reoccurring injuries or reoccurring nightmares about acrobats. As the founder of this movement, Butler also educates the masses through Backhealer training sessions, which equip his loyal followers with the tools to help others recover.
