Iron out head creases with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get an IPL skin treatment (a $350 value) at Body Beautiful Laser Medi-Spa’s six locations in the greater Pittsburgh area.

Body Beautiful Laser Medi-Spa’s medically supervised staff revamps ruddy or rumpled skin with laser treatments. During an IPL skin-rejuvenating facial, a technician calibrates the pulsed light’s wavelength to treat a specific issue, such as sun damage, spider veins, or permanently frozen sneers. Then, the tech will use a laser-emitting hand piece to scan skin for imperfections, trawling all facial surfaces except for the areas directly around the eyes.
The deep-wrinkle-reduction treatment works to smooth skin on the face and neck, chest, hands, or shoulders using a Palomar 1540 fractional laser. Small light beams unleash the collagen stashed beneath dermal layers so it fills in wrinkles and pulls epidermis tighter to reduce sagging jowls, while smoothing skin without the need for moisturizer-slathered rolling pins. The three-stage cooling mechanism soothes surfaces before, during, and after each light pulse.
Those who opt for a skin-tightening treatment will relax while noninvasive, radio-frequency technology tunes into sagging surfaces and broadcasts the taut radiance of youth after a series of treatments at four- to six-week intervals. During an acne treatment, light pulses kill acne-causing bacteria on skin’s surface and reach into sebaceous glands to slow production of pore-clogging sebum. Rosacea treatments work to chase redness away from the cheeks and face so it can be captured in bottles of nail polish.
Each session can last up to 75 minutes, depending on the severity of the condition being treated and the client’s tolerance for strobe lights. Treatments can result in temporary warmth, tightness, or redness but require no downtime for recovery.
