Like an acrylic bathtub, improperly maintained skin can wind up dull, cracked, and littered with derelict rubber duckies. Get a porcelain façade with today’s Groupon to The Institute for Aesthetic Medicine in La Jolla. Choose between the following options:
- For $149, you get three microdermabrasions covering two areas each (a $390 value).
- For $149, you get three IPL photofacials (a $750 value).<p>
The Institute for Aesthetic Medicine’s image-improving team polishes and preserves youthful faces with microdermabrasion and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) procedures. Each microdermabrasion treatment showers skin with thousands of tiny crystals, which blast away dull layers to reveal a refreshed and youthful glow, like having a cast of kindergarteners portraying old misers take off their masks. Alternatively, IPL photofacials harness elos technology to suffuse skin with a deluge of light energy. Dark spots and ruddy veins absorb the powerful frequencies, which leave them to shrink and fade away as new stores of collagen smooth fine lines and abate oversized pores.
The Institute for Aesthetic Medicine
Dr. Scott Ricke, the medical director of The Institute for Aesthetic Medicine believes a beautiful appearance can be attained through noninvasive, surgery-free techniques that leave patients rejuvenated with minimal downtime. His laser and radio-frequency treatments tighten skin and cosmetic injectables reduce facial wrinkles. Susie, the aesthetician on staff, performs similarly noninvasive skincare services, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and ultrasonic pore cleansing.
