To attain the rosy glow of flushed cheeks, eighteenth-century ladies often took snowballs to the face, nuzzled fire-ant hills, and bench-pressed child princes. Give your complexion a painless glow with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get one facial with your choice of a glycolic peel or microdermabrasion (a $130 value) at Georgetown Skin Care in Arlington, Virginia. Impelled by their passion for epidermal excellence, the staff at Georgetown Skin Care bestows derma-dazzle to faces dulled by time and stress with invigorating facials in a multihued, couch-filled space. Receive an expert consultation before relaxing in the dexterous hands of a licensed aesthetician as she calms your vexed visage and transforms it from rough to radiant, exfoliating your mug and ridding it of permanently sleeping skin cells. Accent your new glow with a skin-texturizing glycolic peel or opt for the rejuvenating microdermabrasion to slough off face grime and renew your countenance while diminishing wrinkles, shallow acne scars, and vapid, gossipy fine lines.

Georgetown Electrolysis Skin Care
A regal lobby welcomes guests into Georgetown Electrolysis Skin Care, with swirled wallpaper accenting a corner fireplace, around which a chaise, an ottoman, and plush couches are situated. As they pass under a crystal-dripped chandelier and into private treatment rooms, guests will discover that the staff members who perform each service mirror the coziness of their confines. The spa’s specialties include deep-cleansing facials, massage, and body wraps that battle cellulite and unwanted inches. Staff members also use electrolysis and laser hair removal to permanently oust unwanted fuzz from the body, as well as from sheep who plan to retire to the Caribbean.
