Smooth skin is like freshly frosted birthday cake: it looks so delicious that no one cares how old you are. Flaunt face cakes with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a microdermabrasion at Esana Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa in New Haven (a $140 value).
Esana Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa's Dr. Deborah Pan and Dr. Javier Davila oversee a highly trained team whose expertise in advanced facial rejuvenation garnered Connecticut Magazine's award for Best Medical Spa in 2010 and 2011. During 60-minute microdermabrasion treatments, a friendly clinician gives dead and damaged layers a deft brushoff with a DiamondTome wand and a medley of hip-hop dance moves. A miniscule mine of diamond chips gently scrubs away signs of aging from the topmost dermal layer, whisking away wrinkles and sun damage to reveal an even skinscape underneath. The mechanical slougher evicts dead cells and helps to stimulate the production of collagen and healthy new cells over the long term. Clients leave the office glowing with the confidence that their baby-soft countenances will delight sleeping neighbors when pressed against their windows.
