Though best known for expanding the limits of human thought, the great philosophers were also ardent proponents of skin treatments—rarely furrowing their brows without first applying a de-furrowing cucumber mask. Today’s Groupon will wipe out your own philosophical furrows: for $65, you get $150 worth of services at Belleza Med Spa.
Belleza offers an array of rejuvenating services to help men and women feel their freshest from forehead to toe. Age-defying facial treatments include an organic passion peel, which serves countenances a refreshing cocktail of papaya, pineapple, pumpkin, and mango ($100). Microdermabrasion, meanwhile, employs a gentle, crystal-tipped vacuum system to buff away expired skin and encourage cell roll-over without relying on liver treats ($100).
If amassing age spots are interfering with your love affair with restaurant children's menus, a wave of a laser will help you say farewell to the foes during an age-spot-removal session ($150 per session). Or, if you've noticed increasing cobwebs elsewhere on your body, exterminate their source with a spider-vein-removal treatment ($150 per session). Wrinkle-filling injectables include Botox ($12 per unit, must buy at least 40 units), Restylane ($600 per syringe), and Juvéderm ($600 per syringe).
Eva C. Pacheco is Belleza's medical director and board-certified physician, backing each service with years of clinical experience. Before starting Belleza, she served as medical director and quality council chairwoman of HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital in Albuquerque and as medical director of the Navitas Cancer Rehabilitation Center, also in Albuquerque. All visits to the med spa begin with a thorough consultation to ensure that each face is treated appropriately, preventing allergic reactions and everlasting-gobstopper breakouts.
