Studies show that facials are the most luxurious way to refresh the skin, just ahead of massaging arms with cashmere and exfoliating by letting cheeks flap in the exhaust of a private jet. Luxuriously keep the skin's surface clean with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a microdermabrasion along with a skin consultation and Visia skin analysis at Cascade Medspa and Laser Centre in Baxter (up to a $139 value).
Cascade Medspa and Laser Centre's licensed staff, led by reconstructive surgeon Kurtis Waters, MD, evicts dead skin from the epidermis in a three-step process of analysis and microdermabrasion therapy. The one-hour skin-renaissance appointment begins in the tranquil, cream-colored consultation room, where bodies grace plush chairs and clients confer with a professional about any skincare questions or philosophical quandaries. After the consultation, the Visia Complexion Analysis System zeros in to survey the skin and illustrate a meticulously detailed 3-D image from which its conditions and demands can be deciphered (a $40 value). A diamond-tip wand then glides over the skin's surface to stimulate collagen and remove dead cells, buffing and beautifying body paper and forging territory for new skin cells to pitch tents and tell campfire tales of their ancestors (a $99 value).
The comforting continuity of relaxing colors, warm lighting, and cushioned furniture complement the homey framed art that lines the walls at Cascade Medspa and Laser Centre. The staff caters to a wide range of wellness endeavors and employs pharmaceutical-grade skincare products to promote healthy hides and clean the wounds of highlighter fights.
Though Cascade Medspa and Laser Centre offers discounted microdermabrasion every Monday, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
