Like a beat-up truck, aging skin exhibits sun damage, excessive peeling, and old adhesive from Van Halen bumper stickers. Steer clear of wear and tear with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a photofacial at Allure Medspa in the Scolari's Shopping Center (a $349 value).
Allure Medspa offers tailor-made treatments to clear and smooth the body's most visible layer. The photofacial uses light energy, or IPL, to obliterate signs of skin damage from rosacea plagues, sun assaults, age-related sieges, and overly aggressive pieing.
A skin specialist applies a cool gel to clients' countenances pretreatment; then the smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece dispenses pulses of light to wreak havoc on troublesome areas. Broken capillaries will self-mend and pores will shrink in fear of future fluorescence. Like enduring a double feature of Full House, the process typically lasts about an hour and might cause a slight stinging sensation. The procedure seldom requires local anesthesia and entails little to no downtime, but multiple treatments might be necessary to achieve optimal results.
Allure's interior relaxes guests with a serene atmosphere and minimalist décor. The welcoming foyer features brown and gray tiled floors and neutral tan walls. Treatment rooms, boasting sleek hardwood floors, invite clients to lie on padded chair beds surrounded by artwork, wood cabinetry, and ghosts of wrinkles past.
