Recently unearthed cave paintings show aging Neanderthals building face-shaped sun catchers out of thin leaves and twigs, suggesting that photorejuvenation predates knowledge of what a photon is. Let light melt away the years with today's Groupon from Fine Skin Dermatology, with locations in Orland Park, Joliet, and Burr Ridge. Choose between the following options:
- For $60, you get a microdermabrasion treatment (a $125 value).
- For $300, you get a microdermabrasion and facial IPL photorejuvenation treatment (a $625 value). This treatment is only available in Joliet, and IPL is recommended only for those with skin types 1, 2, and 3.
Battling damaged dermises under the banner of director Dr. Renuka H. Bhatt, the team at Fine Skin Dermatology fills facial furrows, banishes blemishes, and reduces rind-wrinkles with cutting-edge technology. Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive treatment that sloughs off expired skin to make way for a new generation of cells, freshly entering the workforce and proudly sporting collagen diplomas. The dermal wizards at Fine Skin use the DiamondTome microdermabrasion wand, which scrubs away sun damage, mild acne scars, and rough skin from marred visages. Sessions last about 15 minutes and require minimal-to-no downtime.
Instead of lasers, the IPL photorejuvenation treatment relies on milder intense pulsed light, which is a faster, softer, and gentler Easter Bunny to the laser's Arbor Day Viking. Reversing the effects of facial sun damage and dimple discoloration, IPL uses carefully calibrated frequencies to erase light-stains and improve fine lines. It works by stimulating collagen growth under the upper layers of skin and is one of the few treatments effective against rosacea. The procedure usually takes about 15–30 minutes, and it is only recommended for patients with skin types 1, 2, and 3; upon consultation, if it is determined that a customer is ineligible for IPL, the Groupon may be redeemed for five microdermabrasion or dermaplaning sessions (equal to the $625 value), or for two Vi peel sessions ($300 value per session).

Fine Skin Dermatology and Medical Spa director Renuka H. Bhatt, MD keeps a close eye on her staff of board-certified dermatologists, aestheticians, and physicians' assistants as they work to foster skin rejuvenation. Like schoolchildren solving a word problem about peaches, techs trained in IPL hair removal deftly subtract fuzz, and visages in need of a pick-me-up can turn to a range of dermal fillers and UV-light treatments. Throughout their myriad treatments, skin specialists employ skin-preserving product lines such as NeoStrata, Pevonia, Kinerase, and Obagi.
