Being attractive is hard work, which is why, when viewed up close, most supermodels resemble elderly oil-rig workers. Radiate refinement at any range with today's Groupon to Adorned Aesthetics in Tigard. Choose between two options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of men's waxing services.
- For $79, you get a men's Black Tie Affair facial (a $195 value).
A gentleman's skin gets an eye-catching enhancement at Adorned Aesthetics, where experienced aesthetician Melanie Hamilton pampers and polishes skin cells of all textures. With an array of manscaping waxing services, eyebrows ($20) can be artfully shaped, and fuzz-fraught backs ($60) and chests ($45) are rid of extraneous stubble, enabling more elegant phone-booth-based wardrobe changes.
The Black Tie Affair facial rids faces of dead skin, reducing the sight of acne, razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and fine lines caused by the stress of trying to shoo a Siberian tiger out of the garage. After a thorough cleansing, a lactic peel and diamond-tip microdermabrasion oust unwanted skin cells to reveal a revitalized layer underneath. A soothing postpeel mask subdues irritation, and a relaxing massage rids muscles of pent-up tension.
At Adorned Aesthetics, even the most familiar of skincare treatments, the facial, contains some surprises; the center's roster of nine different facials includes three services specifically designed for men as well as a Just Like Heaven exfoliation and massage treatment that lasts a full two hours. Two other services make use of some rare materials: the 24 kt. gold facial uses a gold serum and mask to reverse oxidation damage, and the Diamond Exfolight facial removes dead skin using the diamond-soled shoes that inspired Paul Simon to become a cobbler. When serums fall short, clients turn to the Bio-Roller, an FDA-approved micro-needle rolling system that treats wrinkles and acne without inflicting the downtime associated with surgery.
The spa can offer all of these treatments thanks to the expertise of Melanie Hamilton and Kathryn Hoffman, who are professionally certified and trained by Obagi Pharmaceutical Skin Care. This company also provides a few of the specialized products that they use during treatments on a variety of skin issues. Melanie and Kathryn, who are also trained in the formal modalities of the Valmont skincare line from Switzerland, stay sharp by attending classes, seminars, and conventions in the industry.
