Studies show that modulating one’s facial expression instantly builds camaraderie, whether by laughing at a joke, frowning at a sad story, or making empathetic fish lips at an unemployed merman. Prep your kisser for many roles with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a skincare package at Allure Medspa (a $135 total value). The package includes:
- A microdermabrasion treatment (a $90 value)
- An express facial with mask (a $45 value)<p>
The skin savants at Allure Medspa harness DermaQuest products and a diamond-tipped baton to beautify façades with face-restoring treatments. The roughly half-hour procedure begins with a facial cleansing to clear away pore-clogging dirt, oil, and footprints from loitering butterflies. After scrubbing skin, the visage wizards wave a handheld wand over epidermises to magically remove worn-out skin cells and unruly wrinkles with a gentle stream of particles. An affable aesthetician then applies a cooling mask to chill skin and maximize comfort before infusing mugs with a vitamin-rich cream that welcomes wide-eyed skin cells to their new home. After visages shed the blemish-ridden upper layer, pure lower layers emerge, revealing newly tightened and toned skin. Slight redness may occur, and downtime generally lasts for several hours or as long as it takes a fairy godmother to answer her pager.
