Faces, like suits, should be cleansed thoroughly before special occasions, but often shrink in washing machines. Refresh faces without a fireman’s help with today’s Groupon to Acorn Organica. Choose between the following options:
- For $44, you get a CryoBeauty session with one cartridge (an $88 value).
- For $59, you get a 40-minute Micro Peel and Infuse Express Plus facial (a $118 value).<p>
The seasoned aestheticians at Acorn Organica brighten dull skin and remedy epidermal maladies with a menu of beautifying services that includes ultrasonic peels and premium masks. Acorn Organica’s FDA-approved CryoBeauty solution harnesses the power of frozen nitrogen to freeze away minor skin imperfections such as warts, liver spots, and keratosis without scarring or prolonged igloo exposure. A single cartridge of the serum can typically treat 6–12 spots up to a half inch in diameter, and clients should allow 4–6 weeks for the treatment areas to completely heal.
During a 40-minute Micro Peel and Infuse Express Plus facial, technicians soften epidermises with a microcurrent peel and a deep sonic infusion of organic nutrients. Then, they slather on a premium mask of the client’s choice, including firming, wrinkle-reducing, and sun-damage-reversing formulas. The session concludes with a smoothing eye mask and an eye massage that stimulates lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness like the Michelin Man’s bed of nails. Clients can opt to upgrade to the Micro Peel and Infuse Plus Boost for an additional fee ($40) and unlock an ampule application on fatigued faces and décolleté for more noticeable results.
Marie Black Studio
Marie Swan Black first received her massage training in 1992 in Austin. She felt drawn to aesthetics because, as she explains on her website, "practicing massage without the ability to treat the skin felt incomplete." This led her to offer a more-comprehensive list of services to treat the whole body from the inside out. Today at Marie Black Studio, she performs facials with thoughtfully chosen natural products free of parabens and artificial fragrances, as well as microdermabrasion treatments and fruit-based peels. Her bodywork therapies use modalities such as energetic balancing, which relieves stress and energetic blockages, and special therapies to alleviate pain in spots such as the jaw.
