To attain the rosy glow of flushed cheeks, 18th-century ladies often took snowballs to the face, nuzzled fire-ant hills, and bench-pressed child princes. Give your complexion a painless glow with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a spa package at Polished Images in Carlsbad (a $300 total value). The package includes the following:

- Strawberries and champagne (a $15 value)<p>
At Polished Images, licensed aestheticians purify pores with doting skin services performed amid muted lighting, earth-toned walls, and floral accents. Anti-aging facials utilize exfoliating products to mend mugs, boost natural glow, and leave patrons looking youthful enough to drive Tonka trucks without fake ID. Capable hands untie knotted necks and shoulders with soothing massage, and a trip to the infrared sauna facilitates therapeutic sweating to help with pain relief, weight loss, and stress reduction. During the Dermaplane treatment, aestheticians smooth faces with a special surgical blade that gently scrapes away the microthin top layer of dead skin cells to reduce oil in pores and help skincare products penetrate the epidermis faster. Dermaplaning also helps to reduce acne scars and small, fine wrinkles. Throughout Polished Images’ rejuvenating experience, clients indulge in sweet strawberries and champagne, which woo the senses like a chocolate statue of Lionel Richie.
Polished Images, which is both a relaxing day spa and a full-service hair and nail salon, transforms clients with the help of various Pureology hair products, hard wax, and hawaiian kukui-nut massage oil. Amid the spa's muted lighting, earth-toned walls, and floral accents, licensed aestheticians beautify skin with facials, waxing, and custom airbrush tanning. Next door at the bright salon, hairstylists stand diligently over heads, snipping and arranging coifs into everyday styles or elaborate updos for special occasions and trips to the mailbox.
