A face can both hide and reveal a person's age, just as a hand can both hide and reveal a child's nose after an uncle has mysteriously removed it. Leave more to the imagination with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a European facial (up to a $65 value) at Esthetics by Marlene in Clovis.
At Esthetics by Marlene, licensed aesthetician Marlene Fortney reveals luminous skin with a purifying catalog of facials and waxing services. The one-hour European facial uses youth-restoring Ayur-Medic products to relax faces left frazzled from environmental stress or slaps from Father Time. Swirling fingertips suds a gentle cleanser over faces, massaging away dirt and oil, a buffing exfoliation levels irregular surfaces, and a calming mask soothes visible signs of irritation. The value of this Groupon can also be used toward an upgrade to a more expensive facial treatment, such as an acne facial ($80), anti-aging facial ($70), or full-face replacement.
Though Esthetics by Marlene sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Esthetics by Marlene
Drawing on her medical background, Marlene Fortney transmits youthful brightness back into clients' features with skin-refining treatments in an intimate spa setting, located inside Conter Fleurette a Beauty Affair Day Spa. Her spa service menu centers on the face in a range of treatments that incorporate creams rich in antioxidants, deep-cleansing ultrasound rays, and enzyme exfoliants that gently whisk away roughened façades like a brick-wall repossession. For more intense skin restructuring, Marlene can draw on a retinue of high-powered treatments, such as glycolic-acid peels or diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments that work to unveil smooth complexions from beneath dull skin cells. The specialist also brandishes waxing treatments that span from faces to feet to rid bodies of unwanted hair or sculpt brows into arches sharp enough to pop double-entendres in midair.
