A face can both hide and reveal a person's age, just as a hand can both hide and reveal a child's nose after an uncle has mysteriously removed it. Maintain ageless beauty with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a choice of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments at Clevens Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery, with two Melbourne locations (up to a $995 value). Customers can choose from a 30-minute Artisan skin-rejuvenation treatment, a 45- to 60-minute Pellevé skin-tightening treatment, an IPL photofacial, or a package of three 60-minute custom facials with medical-grade peels.
Overseen by board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Ross A. Clevens, the Clevens Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery employs surgical expertise to perform an array of nonsurgical treatments at its Imagine Medi-Spa. A consultation allows Dr. Clevens to assess each client's goals, advise on the course of treatment, and agree on pizza toppings for the postprocedure party. The Artisan skin-rejuvenation system (a $995 value) customizes facial resurfacing for each patient thanks to three imperfection-fighting musketeers, including a fractional ablative laser, nonablative laser, and pulsed-light technology, that are designed to restructure microcolumns of skin tissue into ionic masterpieces of human architecture. Resurfacees can correct epidermal issues such as wrinkles and sun damage by focusing the treatment on one bodily location, including the eye area, mouth, forehead, cheeks, a small scar, or a small area of stretch marks.
For the facially focused, the Pellevé skin-tightening system (a $595 value) aims to smooth and tighten faces with a hand piece that glides over faces glazed in a protective gel, sending a steady stream of energy that aims to renew collagen stored deep inside skin. The targeted collagen bundles contract and tighten the skin like a freshly tuned snare drum, and the surge of energy tickles proteins to prompt new collagen growth. The IPL photofacial (a $395 value) harnesses a florescent pulsed-light system, targeting myriad epidermal aberrations, such as rosacea, age spots, and enlarged pores, as it penetrates deep below the skin's surface aiming to jump-start collagen production and jaw-powering batteries. Custom facials with medical-grade peels (a $395 value) boost the tone and texture of each client's face by tailoring a treatment that can include light steam, extractions, and masks.
