Sagging facial skin makes it more difficult for humans to express emotion, which explains why Santa appeared only ambivalent about having to train eight animals to fly. Clarify ambiguous emotions with today’s Groupon: for $169, you get two skin-tightening treatment packages at Body+ in Scottsdale (a $1,020 total value). Each treatment package includes:
- A microdermabrasion treatment (an $85 value each)
- A radio-frequency body- or facial-contouring treatment (a $350 value each)
- An LED red-light-therapy treatment (a $75 value each)<p>
The trained beautifiers at Body+ restore youthful luster by combining a variety of contemporary treatments, customized to noninvasively combat sagging skin, crow’s-feet, and uneven complexions. Pamper sessions last approximately two hours, and begin with a microdermabrasion, which preps kissers by gently buffing away dead skin, clearing a path for following treatments and ridding faces of silly expressions that froze that way. Low-temperature radio-frequency treatments safely break up collagen in the lower layers of skin, working to elicit a natural increase in collagen and elastin. A final session of red-light LED therapy thwarts aging, targeting hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and rosacea by expediting healing and easing inflammation. Epidermal experts recommend clients schedule treatments 7 to 10 days apart for the best results, and offer pre-appointment guidelines online, including required vitamin regimens and what obscure art film will best relax you the night before.
Body + founder and certified laser technician Holli Arnlund combines traditional spa treatments with advanced technologies to reinforce the skin's foundation and beautify its surface. Microdermabrasion dislodges dead skin cells and frozen facial expressions, and LED equipment beams red, blue, green, and yellow wavelengths of lights into skin cells to target issues such as acne or sun damage. Patients can combat fine lines and pigmentation issues with a facial peel or sweeten cheeks with a blend of papaya, pineapple, pumpkin, and mango from the organic passionfruit resurfacing treatment. Body-contouring treatments whittle inches from the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, or arms. Body + also smoothes skin with waxing services and readies faces for special events or unplanned appearances on the evening news with deft makeup applications.
