To function properly, faces require ample rest to offset the hours they spend bench-pressing their eyebrows and crunching their dimples. Give your face the respite it requires with today's Groupon to Charlotte Aesthology. Choose between two options:
- For $40, you get a European facial (an $80 value).
- For $48, you get a European facial with eyebrow shaping (a $98 value).
Licensed medical aesthetician Sally Raker begins each 75-minute European facial by inquiring about customers' epidermal issues in order to tailor treatments to their goals. Raker then harnesses the powers of either botanical Pevonia or medical-grade SkinCeuticals products (whichever benefits skin best) throughout the treatment, which starts with a sudsy skin soak. A steam cleaning then opens up pores, allowing dirt, grime, and old meringue to vacate the premises during a series of extractions. While cleansing bio-terrains, Raker massages shoulders and necks and slips hands and feet into warming mitts and booties. A finishing coat of moisturizer protects faces from UV rays.
If clients opt to include the eyebrow shaping, Raker strategically yoinks follicles to sculpt them into shapes complimentary to each guest's face shape, be it oblong, oval, diamond, or like that of a balloon released by a child more interested in ice cream.
Raker’s treatments take place within a private room where classical, piano, and New Age music play softly. These mellifluous melodies are accompanied by the pitter-patter of water drops falling down a fountain, and soft lighting and a palpable absence of sweaty ghosts makes the mood even more tranquil.
Origin Stories: The Basics of Canine Ballet
Before she was a licensed medical aesthetician, Sally Raker learned to heal the human body by shifting its surrounding energy with the vibrations of tuning forks. Since then, she has forgone sound therapy in favor of clearing the acne from teenage skin. When not beautifying brides before the big day, Sally indulges in her penchant for ballet by pirouetting with her six-year-old Pomeranian, Jack, though she usually refrains from doing so at the dog park.
