Human faces experience a lifetime of wear and tear from gravity, driving into the wind, and pineapple-pie-eating contests. Today's Groupon lets you restore your cheeks' original splendor: for $45, you get a microdermabrasion treatment at Gem State Dermatology (a $90 value).
Gem State Dermatology’s certified epidermal artisan, Dr. Mings, restores frontispieces to grin-inducing glory with a noninvasive microdermabrasion skin-resurfacing treatment. After a free, yet optional, 45-minute cosmetic consultation with amicable aesthetician Caitlin Hutchinson expunges facial filth and burrowing skin gophers during a preprocedure cleansing. Then, the Diamond Tome system gingerly sloughs away sullied epidermal layers and dead skin cells with a diamond-tipped wand, paving the way for new cell growth and rubber-band-grade elasticity. By reducing tegument thickness, the procedure helps to unclog pores brimming with blackheads and loose change, and may also shoo away mild acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. A slathering of moisturizer and sun block completes the treatment, leaving faces hydrated and protected against UV rays.
