What You'll Get
- $51 for The Works microdermabrasion and free celluma light treatment for decollete ($160 value)
During the microdermabrasion treatment, the licensed professional uses a crystal-free microdermabrasion wand to deeply exfoliate the skin and improve its tone, texture, and clarity. A vacuum draws away the exfoliated cells, giving the complexion a fresher appearance and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The FDA approved Celluma LED treatments jumpstart the body’s natural healing mechanism to decrease inflammation and boost circulation, while correcting wrinkles and acne.
Elastin: Putting a Spring in Your Smile
With aging, besides the better known degradation of collagen, some of the effects that anti-aging facials also seek to correct are caused by the breakdown of elastin. Learn just what it does for your skin with Groupon’s close-up look.
Without elastin, our lungs would have a hard time expanding and our skin would crinkle like a paper bag the first time a doting aunt pinched our cheek. Elastin is a type of protein packed into all our stretchy tissues in coiled chains—each fiber unfurling to accommodate the movement of connective tissues, then quickly snapping back into place.
A weaker protein might easily break down under the stress of all this movement, so it’s no surprise that elastin is tough stuff. But because it’s so durable, our bodies stop producing elastin around age 12 or 13. At that point, elastin becomes vulnerable to degradation through sun exposure, poor diet, and other environmental factors, since it can’t be readily replenished.
There is no shortage of products on the market designed to reverse elastin damage; some even contain elastin itself. However, elastin molecules are large, and therefore unlikely to penetrate the skin and directly make tissues springier. But such products still may produce a plumper, smoother look by helping the surface of the skin retain moisture. You might also try a little internal medicine: in the San Francisco Chronicle, nutrition educator Paula Martina noted that eating foods rich in copper, such as dried figs or raisins, could help protect elastin reserves.
This Microderm treatment, along with the added Celluma LED light treatment, work together to combat the signs of aging and stimulate the skin to build collagen and strengthen the elastin supply of the dermal layer.

About Aglow Beauty
Julie Ton approaches skin care like a scientist. She knows that the health of skin is subject to both internal and external factors alike, and so she works with clients to identify and address the factors in their own lives. Going beyond the scope of a typical aesthetician, Julie pairs every facial with plenty of conversation, as she both consults with, and educates, the client in her care. Once she identifies the lifestyle and genetic factors influencing a guests' skin health, including sleeping habits, daily water consumption, and propensity for wearing Groucho glasses, she's able to tailor her services and recommendations. She also offers guidance on how to maintain that post-facial glow.
