The sun, like a moody suitor, periodically withdraws only to return with bursts of white-hot intensity that can prematurely age you. Undo passionate UV hickeys with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a skin analysis (a $50 value) and a photo rejuvenation facial (up to a $250 value) at Gentle Touch Skin & Laser Centres (up to a $300 total value). This Groupon is valid at Halifax and Dartmouth locations. June 10 is the grand opening of the Spring Garden Road location, and while the skin analysis can be performed at the new location, the rejuvenation treatment can only take place at the other two locations.
Gentle Touch specializes in nonsurgical and laser skin treatments, employing modern technology to banish signs of wear from sun-kissed facescapes. A trained epidermis expert conducts a skin analysis to identify damage on faces and necks caused by age, UV rays, and pet stingrays. The IPL photo rejuvenation facial then works to undo the damage with pulses of highly concentrated laser beams that safely penetrate skin to address damaged areas at their subcutaneous roots. The treatment can smooth skin, even colour, and stimulate new collagen growth to combat fine lines and wrinkles. Results can appear after one treatment, but technicians may recommend additional treatments for large or especially dark areas or to improve the look of bruised fruit. Patients may experience minimal discomfort in the form of a light snapping sensation.
