In a desperate bid for smoother skin, Victorian nobility were known to stop caking their face in powder and start slathering it in Crisco. Stop hiding your face with today’s Groupon: for $98, you get two microdermabrasion Elite facials at Facelogic in South Barrington (a $198 value).
Facelogic's staff specializes in restorative and anti-aging facials and refurbishes weathered mugs with noninvasive microdermabrasion facials. Upon arrival, clients meet with a friendly aesthetician, who will custom-design the facial to their skin type and individual needs. The 60-minute treatment, which works to reverse the effects of aging and hyperpigmentation, can also reduce the appearance of acne scars and cleanse pores clogged with filling from pies thrown by sharpshooting clowns. Dead skin cells crumble under a thorough exfoliation to reveal the vivid visage, which may sport a fresh firmness and marked reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.
