Unlike time-travelers, faces age through the years and try to avoid all the wrinkles in their vicinity. Send skin back to the future with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a microdermabrasion elite facial at Facelogic Spa in Encinitas (a $109 value).
Facelogic Spa’s aestheticians continually study the latest skincare services to skillfully perform a wide range of luxury skincare treatments. Before each microdermabrasion, friendly therapists greet guests and escort them to peaceful spa areas, where they can slip out of workaday apparel or spandex superhero costumes and into loose-fitting spa gowns. Clients settle into zero-gravity chairs inspired by NASA that relieve pressure on the lower back by elevating legs above the heart. Specialists slough away signs of aging and hyperpigmentation by abrading and exfoliating acne scars, clogged pores, and uneven skin. After wrestling signs of wear, the pamperers rub away anxieties during a 20-minute neck and shoulder massage, and guests may enhance the unwinding with a complimentary glass of wine or by spinning around counter-clockwise.
The skincare specialists at Facelogic Spa follow the same mantra: to bring out the best in each client. To do this, the technicians work through a brief questionnaire and skin analysis to determine which of the menu’s 10-plus facials best suit each client's skin. Signature facials rely on Facelogic’s own Signature skincare line, which uses botanical-based formulas and advanced cosmetic and pharmaceutical combinations to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. The Microdermabrasion Elite Facial covers skin with products from brands such as Dr. Dennis Gross and Image Skincare. All facials include an arm-and-shoulder massage, and can be enhanced with a range of add-ons, including chemical peels and sonnets composed by the aesthetician. Facelogic also carries products such as Glominerals makeup and Blinc mascara.
