Faces, like potatoes, must be scrubbed and buffed to clear away excess dirt, remove dry skin, and prevent the emergence of extra eyes. Buff away unsightly blemishes with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get either one microdermabrasion treatment with enzyme and hydrating mask or one chemical peel from Gloria Edlam at Studio Fringe (up to an $105 value).
Licensed aesthetician Gloria Edlam restores youthful vibrancy to the face's topmost layers with exfoliating treatments. She first performs a comprehensive epidermal analysis to determine skin’s personality type and then pairs it with products from either SkinCeuticals or glo therapeutics. During the 30-minute microdermabrasion treatment, faces will be treated to dirt-stripping cleansing and toning before reaping the conditioning benefits of a two- to three-minute enzyme mask in choice of cranberry, pomegranate, cherry, or pumpkin. The exfoliating crystals of the Skin Science system gingerly strip skin of dead cells and Halloween makeup, restoring a healthy, luminous glow. A soothing gel mask blankets resurfaced façades under a calming salve duvet, and a hydrating gel infuses skin with moisture and sunscreen. Alternatively, the mild chemical peel lifts dull, lifeless cells from their haunts on cheeks, chins, and rickety forehead scaffolding over the course of 30 minutes. Safe for sensitive visages, the less intense formula evens out discoloration and smoothes rough patches to reveal a firm, youthful complexion. Though skin may become slightly red and tingly following the treatment, irritation usually ceases after a couple of hours.
