Unlike photo finishes, photofacials aren't nerve-racking and never determine which horse gets the prize. Place bets on renewed looks with today's Groupon: for $139, you get a facial-rejuvenation package at Elite Laser and Skin Spa in Algonquin (a $750 total value). The package includes:
- One photofacial (a $250 value)
- One Lux 1540 Fractional Laser skin-resurfacing treatment (a $500 value)
Elite Laser and Skin Spa's board-certified physician, Dr. Gunnar Thors, and his highly trained staff preserve patients' facial and bodily beauty with personalized, noninvasive procedures. The photofacial treatment beams thick pulses of light into epidermal layers to help to eradicate broken capillaries, pigment discoloration, age spots, and inflammation and reduce traces of rosacea. The precise light technology allows exact doses of light to travel to specific regions of the visage, thereby targeting the unique areas of sun damage incurred during the client's most recent spaceship fender-bender. Whereas the photofacial concentrates on color, the non-ablative Lux 1540 laser treatment can elevate skin's appearance by treating its texture. Covering a variety of bodily surfaces, patients can correct topographical imperfections such as wrinkling, stretch marks, melasma, or paper-airplane-impact craters, as well as scarring caused by acne or old surgeries. Smoothifying changes usually reveal themselves over the course of a few days.
Because both the photofacial and the laser skin-resurfacing treatment are noninvasive, no recovery time is required. All procedures are administered in a private, ghost-free setting.
