Maintaining your hair and skin can help project a professional image more easily than sewing a three-piece suit from business cards. Finesse your façade with today's Groupon at Aqua Vitae Spa. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get one LumiLift or LumiFacial (a $350 value).
- For $195, you get three LumiLifts or LumiFacials (a $1,050 value).
In Aqua Vitae's feng shui–inspired atmosphere, deft technicians harness the cosmetic power of light to temper uneven skin-tone, sagging countenances, and acne outbursts. The muscle-toning LumiLift treatment stimulates collagen production by staring down recalcitrant fibroblast cells until they sheepishly resume their jobs. The noninvasive therapy may also tighten the neck area and reduce pore size. The LumiFacial, tailored to skin tone and condition, targets common problems such as rosacea, sun-damage, and acne inflammation, which it can reduce by up to 90%. Both luminous treatments abstain from ultraviolet exposure, resulting in no thermal damage, minimal downtime, and an absence of excited bees. Many clients notice results right away, though 6–10 sessions may be necessary for the best outcome. The beautifying effects of one session may last as long as three months, and a series can persevere through an entire year, depending on skincare practices.
Aqua Vitae Spa
Aqua Vitae Spa is at the intersection of holistic and conventional medicines, uniting the two philosophies inside one serene space. Plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Sewell is the man-sized glue holding the center together, and along with a staff of dedicated practitioners—including aesthetician Isabel Sutherland—he explores surgical and nonsurgical solutions to his patients' aesthetic quandaries. The center's repertoire includes traditional skincare such as facials, peels, massages, and microdermabrasion along with more novel methods, including the decadent gold caviar facial, which infuses 24-karat gold flakes into the skin and takes its inspiration from King Midas’s favorite meal. Every time the center adopts a new therapy the staff takes care to test them on themselves before using them on clients.
