Prior to the advent of the chemical peel, supple-skin seekers were forced to exfoliate by relentlessly pelting themselves with peanut brittle. Reap the benefits of modern skincare with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one facial chemical peel at Aphrodite Advanced Esthetic & Skin Care Clinic in McLean, Virginia (a $120 value).
Led by Dr. Anoush R. Sarraf, Aphrodite's staff bolsters beauty with an array of spa treatments tailored to soften and smooth the face's epidermal pastures. The chemical peel kicks off with a topical cleansing of the skin, which rids visages of underlying oil and dirt before the chemical-peel solution is applied. Each countenance concoction is customized to treat clients' specific needs and goals, whether they're looking to treat fine lines, annihilate acne, even out pigmentation, or win their office's Best Frown competition. After the treatment, an aesthetician applies a soothing ointment to the fresh façade and provides an overview of basic aftercare procedures, resulting in a visage as smooth and springy as a steamed baozi.
Aphrodite Advanced Esthetic & Skin Care
Dr. Anoush R. Sarraf and the staff at Aphrodite Advanced Esthetic & Skin Care resurface and reshape the body using laser technology. With the many settings of the Candela GentleMax workstation, they tackle cosmetic complaints such as spider veins, hyperpigmentation, and unwanted body hair. Brandishing the CO2 fractional laser, they deploy a fleet of microbeams to stimulate epidermal renewal. A gallery of before-and-after photos recounts the team's cosmetic successes better than the clinic's resident balladeer.
