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: for $59, you get a 40-minute Micro Peel and Infuse Express Plus facial at Acorn Organica (a $118 value).
Aestheticians at Acorn Organica brighten skin with ultrasonic peels and premium masks. During the 40-minute Micro Peel and Infuse Express Plus facial, technicians soften epidermises with a micro-current 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, sun-damage-reversing, or secret-identity-concealing formulas. The session concludes with a smoothing eye mask and an eye massage that stimulates lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness.
Clients can opt to upgrade to the Micro Peel and Infuse Plus Boost for an additional fee ($40). The treatment includes an ampoule application on fatigued faces and décolleté for more noticeable results. Clients may also choose to apply the value of the Groupon to the first cartridge of a CryoBeauty treatment, which harnesses the power of nitrogen to freeze away minor skin issues such as warts, liver spots, and keratosis without scarring or prolonged igloo exposure.
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.
