For the skin care specialists at Glow Luxe Skincare, the key to avoiding cosmetic surgery is simply taking care of your skin. They take this task seriously, having created the Glow Rescue Advanced Skin RX product line, which eschews parabens, fragrances, alcohol, and fillers such as recycled-phonebook mulch. They wield these high-quality products during in-depth appointments, rejuvenating the appearances of their clients with fractional skin-tightening treatments, enzyme peels, and oxygen facials made popular by Madonna and Eva Longoria.

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).
LalliCare Day Spa brings an expert staff of massage, acupuncture, neurofeedback training, craniosacral therapy, Feldenkrais, nutritional counseling, and pharmacy services together under one roof. Opened by Sukhi Lalli more than 15 years ago, the practice has grown from a pharmacy to a full clinic. As it grew, LalliCare's crew hasn't let go of what originally set Sukhi apart as a pharmacist: a service-oriented approach that takes time to educate clients, encourages them to ask questions, and uses a team-based approach that ensures the staff stays ready should it be challenged to a game of kickball by a rival business. The clinic also offers many laser-assisted treatments such as spider vein and body hair removal and skin rejuvenation.

That means that the center's laser therapist is uniquely qualified to enhance clients' appearances with the clinic's arsenal of aesthetic lasers. The expert takes a personalized approach to every treatment performed, from laser hair removal and acne reduction to body contouring and skin rejuvenation.
