The application of science to the human body can produce unexpected results, as seen when Dr. Frankenstein's monster, given smooth skin and a nice head of hair, became 23rd President Benjamin Harrison. Soak up the surprises of science with today’s Groupon: for $115, you get the fall facial at BioTec USA (a $245 value).
The 80-minute fall facial employs an osmotic peeling solution specially engineered by BioTec USA to undo sun damage, reduce age spots and wrinkles, and imbue the skin with a dose of revitalizing energy. An entourage of active cosmeceuticals, pumped up with super-powered antioxidants and peptides, nourishes needy skin and gently corrects the cruel reminders of past trysts with the sun. The treatment acts as an effective photo-aging armor, turning snap-happy cameras and blackmail aficionados into weak, laughable opponents and exposing an evenly toned, bright visage that fearlessly outshines Old Man Winter’s ugly mug at a moment's notice.
BioTec USA's experienced team of experts dedicate themselves to the development of high-quality anti-aging products, such as Co-Enzyme Q-10–infused and paraben-free skincare lines. The company’s new location in the Palisades near Georgetown features two facial rooms, one body-treatment room, and a large retail area. Owner and master aesthetician Tanya applies more than 30 years of experience in the aesthetic medicine industry when customizing protocols for clients and is only a few years away from decoding the continuum transfunctioner that unlocks the answers to this Sunday's crossword puzzle.
BioTec USA founder and licensed aesthetician Tanya Gospodinova has been transforming complexions for three decades. After studying medicine and dermatology in Bulgaria, Gospodinova created a day spa that would evolve into a research-based health-care and beauty haven. She wanted to develop topical products that were not only capable of fighting everyday signs of aging but also potent enough to repair skin post surgery. Her Serum Collagen HP, for example, includes active ingredients such as niacinamide, which improves elasticity, green coffee extract, which nourishes skin with polyphenols, and glycoprotein from the Antarctic sea, which moisturizes and promotes collagen production.
Gospodinova and her team employ the powerful, nature-based formulas during results-oriented facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments. At each consultation, she uses video microscopy to magnify the skin 1,000 times—enough to spot the tiniest imperfections and determine for certain whether a freckle really looks like Elvis.
