Spas make people feel like royalty without the hassle of shopping for scepters or posing for playing-card portraits. Enjoy regal treatments with today's Groupon: for $79, you get $300 worth of spa services at Balanced Health & Beauty.
Balanced Health & Beauty’s board-certified staff, overseen by an MD, wields the power of modern and alternative medicine to fight aging and enhance appearances with aesthetic procedures, including microdermabrasion. Custom facials ($95) treat individual skin types using products blended from natural ingredients to encompass visages in soothing masks, such as chocolate antioxidant or pumpkin enzyme. Spider veins go into hiding after laser vein therapy ($200) focuses concentrated light pulses to collapse veins that are absorbed by the body over time, and the ND:YAG laser system removes regrettable tattoos of pet goldfish who ended up taking off for a larger aquarium with laser tattoo removal ($55–$200/session). Customers who buy two Groupon vouchers get treated to their choice of a complimentary microdermabrasion treatment ($95), which resurfaces the skin to brush away the appearance of wrinkles, or an Obagi Blue Peel Radiance treatment ($95), a concentrated blend of swear words and bawdy jokes. A full menu of services offered for this deal can be found here.
Balanced Health and Beauty
Practicing in aesthetics and pain management since 2004, Leslie Escalante has concluded that natural remedies can enhance the practice of Western medicine. She left her position as an assistant to a board-certified physician to open Balanced Health and Beauty, where she melds medical practices with natural solutions to combat physical aging. She recruited Dr. J. Scott Gaertner, a board-certified family practitioner and graduate of The University of Texas Medical School, to oversee the center's more involved procedures. These include FDA-cleared cosmetic injections that require absolute precision to create firm, smooth skin, and personalized hormone-replacement regimes that mitigate the fatigue caused by winding the town clock daily.
Representing Escalante's interest in holistic wellness, the center also fosters proper nutrition with Xymogen vitamin supplements and a variety of diet plans. Multitalented lasers use radio frequency to gently clear detritus from pores, evict unwanted hairs, or diminish visible sun damage or spider veins. Traditional facials target conditions specific to each patient's skin type with chocolate antioxidants and pumpkin enzymes, and peels rely on serums from PCA Skin and Obagi to reveal healthy, youthful complexions.
