Faces, like potatoes, must be scrubbed and buffed to clear away excess dirt, remove dry skin, and prevent the emergence of extra eyes. Buff away unsightly blemishes with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get one microdermabrasion treatment at Elizabeth Roche M.D. MedSpa in Woodcliff Lake (a $150 value).
The attentive staffers at Elizabeth Roche M.D. MedSpa employ noninvasive microdermabrasion treatments to reveal healthy façades in less than an hour. Technicians lather faces with a sudsy cleanser and then sweep a stream of tiny crystals across skin's surface, which leaves clients with a youthful glow and unexpected desire to play hopscotch. The machine's pressure adjusts to suit various skin types, gently removes outermost layers, and stimulates collagen and elastin production. Fresh epidermal cells emerge from beneath dulled, superficial surfaces, boosting facial elasticity to diminish fine lines and minor scars. At the conclusion of each buffing session, aestheticians suction away any loitering cells and crystals with a face-friendly vacuum cleaner.
For optimal results, doctors recommend between five and 12 microdermabrasion sessions and advise patients to discontinue acne treatments, waxing, and poetry slams prior to each appointment to reduce sensitivity. Temporary redness or dryness may occur after each treatment, and can typically be alleviated with moisturizer and sunscreen use.
