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. Unveil a renewed visage with today's Groupon: for $70, you get a 65-minute Classic Babor Facial (a $95 value) and glycolic peel (a $50 value) at Cloud Nine Skin and Body Care (a $145 value).
The charming crew at Cloud Nine Skin and Body Care, helmed by licensed aesthetician Roxanne Marie Ralph, focus on facial façades, seeking out ways to coax out their original healthy glow. The Classic Babor Facial, administered in a private treatment room replete with open-air windows and several cartoon butterflies, pairs a relaxing, deep cleanse with the brawn of a professional-strength glycolic peel. Brimming with natural Babor ingredients, the facial delves deep to extract impurities from façades, and a soothing massage relieves stress inhabiting the face, décolletage, and shoulders. An ampoule treatment restores and rejuvenates overworked skin before a 30% AHA/BHA peel smoothes wrinkled surfaces, regulates blotchy areas, encourages new skin growth, and teaches pores to speak French. As a post-peel perk, clients choose from three treatments—a hydrating booster that locks in moisture, a collagen treatment that shores up collagen formation, and an oxygen infusion treatment that sparks cell activity and skin renewal.
Cloud Nine Skin and Body Care
Roxanne Marie Ralph’s own sensitive skin was the starting point in her journey toward becoming a licensed aesthetician. She left her job as an investment banker and began Cloud Nine Skin and Body Care, where she’s worked to help others discover solutions for their unique skincare concerns for the last 19 years. Along with performing classic facials and chemical peels, she beautifies skin with microdermabrasions and face and décolletage masks. In addition to skincare, Roxanne offers waxing services, which are about not only removing unwanted hairs from brows but also shaping them to better reflect the client’s face shape, eyebrow personality, and favorite mathematical parabola.
