Humans see other people's faces more than their own unless they are professional models or life coaches for mirrors. Polish up your reflection with today’s Groupon: for $95, you get a full set of mascara-look eyelash extensions at FaceToFace Spa (a $195 value).
Today's Groupon also includes half off your first lash refill (a $30 value).
At FaceToFace Spa, licensed aestheticians improve the batting average of lashes with Lavish Lashes extensions. During the roughly two-hour appointment, a steady-handed staffer affixes 50 individual lashes to each natural lashline with a special bonding agent, instantly framing peepers in flirty lushness. FaceToFace keeps an arsenal of synthetic lashes in various lengths and thicknesses on hand, helping pump up peepers without having them bench-press lead-filled eyeglasses. Patrons can return for a second appointment to redeem their half-off discount on a lash refill, which FaceToFace’s lash experts recommend every two–three weeks. To promote a calming atmosphere, music pipes across the spa’s waiting area while patrons lounge in plush chairs, sip complimentary wine or tea, or camouflage toes stained from grape stomping in the pile of purple rugs.
Face To Face Spa at Avery Ranch
As she relates in a 2011 profile in Miss A, Face To Face Spa's Jenny Abraham wrote herself a unique prescription in 2006: monthly facials, for the next five years. Abraham had suffered severe cystic acne since she was 15 years old, and the breakouts had crippled her self-esteem to the point where they seemed to even eclipse her accomplishments as a registered nurse. The regime restored her complexion's health, so she opened the spa in March 2011 to share her methods with her clients, just as kindergartners are taught to share their toys with others and their thoughts with Twitter.
Skin consultations are the jumping-off point for each treatment, which could take the shape of a topical therapy or an intervention with lasers or mechanical exfoliators. Nine peels, however, are the house specialty. Abraham mixes fruit enzymes or lactic acid to heal mild symptoms of rosacea and promote cellular regeneration, and she blends more aggressive chemical formulas to clear actinic keratosis and diminish signs of aging. For all the face and body treatments, the staff relies on professional targeted products, which have been engineered without animal testing and eschew irritants such as perfume and skunk stink. Massage therapists take a holistic approach to beauty by relieving stress, and cosmetologists attend to the finishing touches with Lavish Lashes extensions and Jane Iredale cosmetics.
