Human faces experience a lifetime of wear and tear from gravity, driving into the wind, and pineapple-pie-eating contests. Today's Groupon lets you restore your cheeks' original splendor: for $49, you get a microdermabrasion treatment with a chemical peel at The Downtown Spa and Laser Center (a $150 value), located in Norfolk.
The Downtown Spa and Laser Center offers a variety of medical-minded cosmetic and corrective treatments for face and body, with a staff of doctors overseeing procedures. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that rejuvenates skin through exfoliation, in turn promoting new cell and collagen production, stimulating microcirculation and lymphatic flow, and balancing oil levels to even out skin tone and texture. Crystals pillaged from the depths of Elizabeth Taylor's walk-in closet buff and polish the skin to rejuvenate dermal dams back into a healthy state of smoothness.
The chemical peel treatment begins with a consultation to study your skin and determine what's on its birthday wish list. Once you have been cleared for takeoff, beneficial acids will remove the outer, damaged layers of skin to reveal its healthy undercoat. The glycolic-acid peel takes an eraser to fine lines and hyperpigmentation, while a salicylic-acid peel polishes up scar-and-acne-inflicted skin. Chemical peels leave skin delicate, so be sure to stay out of the sun or wear sunscreen and a hat during the first few days following the treatment. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.

The Downtown Spa & Laser Center
Within Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's Norfolk location, The Downtown Spa & Laser Center pairs the results-oriented approach of a medical facility with the relaxing amenities of a spa. Flickering candles gently illuminate the treatment rooms, where a soundtrack of natural harmonies surrounds patients with the soothing noise of rain falling or a park ranger learning to read. In the chambers, specialists wield laser-emitting devices designed to combat the appearance of unwanted hairs, spider veins, and wrinkles. With at least one aesthetician always on site, the center's staff also uses medical-grade skincare treatments to do everything from calming acne outbreaks to exfoliating dead skin cells.
