Although skin is the stretchiest organ, it is also the most underappreciated, receiving a fraction of the heart's press coverage and none of the expressive emoticons directed at the eyes. Show your skin you care with today's Groupon: for $99, you get your choice of a fractional skin resurfacing, a photofacial, or an Accent XL skin tightening for one body part (up to an $800 value) at BodyTrends, with one location on Penn Avenue and two locations on S. Western Avenue (up to an $800 value). Photofacials are not effective on dark skin.
BodyTrends harnesses the latest light and heat technologies to bring minimally invasive skin-rejuvenating technologies to the public. If your best face is playing second fiddle, a photofacial can zap problem areas with pulsed light to remove dark spots and broken capillaries, and de-rouge redness ($350 for face and neck). To eliminate skin issues such as stretch marks and other surface blemishes from any body part, opt for a PIXEL laser fractional skin resurfacing ($800), which heat-treats specific sections of damaged skin cells, allowing new, healthy ones to replace them. The sections are precisely spaced so that untreated segments gradually rejuvenate as well. The skin-tightening treatment (good for the face, neck, breast, stomach, buttocks, or one arm or one leg) is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses an infrared laser to heat the layer of fat beneath the skin, causing the dermal layers to tighten, and the gremlins of sagginess to flee your external real estate (up to $750).
The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants. By stimulating muscles with gentle electrical currents, technicians can mimic the effects of a face-lift or breast lift without ever breaking the scalpel out of its emergency glass. Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
