Skin-rejuvenation treatments give shiftless lasers a creative outlet during their spare time, which would otherwise be spent harassing cats and blinding the Hubble. Give a beam a new purpose with today's Groupon: for $95, you get a skin-rejuvenation treatment on the full face, or two treatments on half the face (up to a $250 total value) at Citrus Laser & Advanced Esthetics.
At Citrus Laser, registered nurses belonging to the Dermatology Nurses Association banish vascular and pigmented lesions with laser skin-rejuvenation treatments. During an initial 15-minute consultation, patients undergo a quick powwow with the laser tech that includes joining a drum circle and a 24-hour patch test to ensure treatment candidacy. Then, in 20- to 35-minute sessions, the skin restorer brandishes photofacial laser technology to scuttle pigmentation such as brown spots and sun damage from view (cannot treat moles), as well as vascular lesions expressed as broken red and purple vessels.
Depending on the extent of skin discoloration, treated areas may darken initially after treatment, but then gradually fade in beautiful swan shapes. Treatments occur every four to six weeks, and Citrus Laser typically recommends up to six treatments to reach optimal results. Upon leaving, staff furnishes clients with post-care instructions.
