Hollywood is obsessed with youth and beauty, which is why Whistler’s Mother never wins Best Picture. Cultivate an Oscar-worthy exterior with today’s Groupon: for $589, you get a Fraxel laser skin-rejuvenation package at Eternal Youth Medical Spa (a $1,620 total value). The package includes the following:
- One Fraxel laser skin-rejuvenation treatment for the cheeks, forehead, chin, or neck (a $1,500 value).
- One post-treatment ultrasonic facial (a $120 value).<p>
The topaz-toned walls of Eternal Youth Medical Spa harbor a savvy staff, high-tech equipment, plush furnishings, and wrinkle-reducing procedures, including the Fraxel laser treatment. During the treatment, thousands of microlasers aim to fill in facial furrows and undo patchy sun damage, stimulating the body’s natural healing process on small patches of skin at a time and drawing inspiration from Caesar’s dictums of “Divide and conquer” and “Always use lasers.” The two-hour session begins with the application of a topical anesthetic. Milder treatments may leave patients immediately able to perform their daily duties, whereas treatments for more serious skin issues can require as much as a week in downtime. For optimal results, full-face rejuvenation, or full memorization of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” youth seekers may require three–six sessions.
The ultrasonic facial, scheduled post-Fraxel treatment, works to stimulate cells with warm temperatures, toning and regenerating skin while cleansing clinging debris. The procedure, bolstered by LED light therapy, may reduce redness, wrinkles, and rosacea and help to shrink pore size. Gentle, noninvasive, and virtually pain-free, the facial is appropriate for all ages and skin types, much like a sad-clown costume.
