Like neatly removing the decal from a new pair of sunglasses or convincing a chinchilla to slide across a dusty coffee table, facial peels are a deeply satisfying way to clean up an appearance. Rid your visage of surface sullies with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a chemical peel at Avanti Skin Center (up to a $125 value).
Chemical peels aim to treat or diminish the appearance of blemishes, wrinkles, and scars. One of Avanti Skin Center's licensed aestheticians first chooses a chemical solution according to the client's skin type and Mensa score. The beta-hydroxy peel tackles the battle scars of acne and the trichloroacetic-acid peel irons out wrinkles caused by ageing or sleeping face-down in a swim cap. Like a triplet who's just inhaled helium, the alphahydroxy-acid peel is the lightest of the trio and requires minimal recovery time. After dull masks of dead skin cells are peeled from mugs, new skin cells flourish with increased oxygen intake and generate a glow strong enough to keep closet monsters in hiding.
Avanti Skin Center
Dr. Michelle Beth Hicks and her licensed staff at Avanti Skin Center brighten and smooth skin with an array of services including facials, laser treatments, and injections. Staff members consult with clients and offer free estimates before embarking on the noninvasive treatment that best suits individual needs. Botox injections relax wrinkle-causing muscles, or facial fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane fill in creases to make skin as smooth as a freshly Zambonied peanut-butter skating rink. Specialists also treat skin to UV-free spray tans and microdermabrasion treatments that exfoliate away discoloration, scarring, and s’mores remnants.
