Smooth skin is like freshly frosted birthday cake: it looks so delicious that no one cares how old you are. Flaunt face cakes with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a microdermabrasion treatment and intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial at Allure Cosmetic Medical Center in Orange Park (up to a $525 value).
The skin-rejuvenating staff at Allure Cosmetic Medical Center erases signs of age and wear with medical-grade nonsurgical treatments. Microdermabrasion employs a DiamondTome wand to gently abrade the outer layer of dead skin cells that hide the softer skin below just as a geode's dull outer layer hides the beautiful dinosaur baby within. The treatment can smooth skin and reduce the appearance of mild acne scarring, fine lines, and pigment irregularities. A physician then performs an IPL photofacial, which employs pulses of carefully calibrated light to destroy the pigment that causes age spots, spider veins, doodlebug arteries, and rosacea.
If requested, a topical anesthetic makes the procedure as comfortable as possible, and patients often return to work the same day as the double-strength smoothing appointment. Results are typically noticeable after a single session, but the Center recommends a series of 3-5 of the combination treatments for patients to obtain optimal results and develop a real friendship with the IPL machine.
Though Allure Cosmetic Medical Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
