What You'll Get
Like snakes, humans must shed their skin in order to maintain a supple appearance and more easily wrap themselves around their prey. Boost your formidable glow with today's Groupon: for $99, you get three microdermabrasion treatments (an $85 value each), three acne chemical peels (a $75 value each), or three sun-damage melasma peels (a $95 value each) at Inverness Dermatology in Hoover (up to a $285 total value).
Under the supervision of Dr. Elizabeth S. Jacobson, the staff at Inverness Dermatology brings a medical precision to the finicky art of facescaping. Whether to brighten lifeless skin or erase the self-portrait you painted on your face, Inverness Dermatology's epidermal experts can customize their tools and techniques for each individual's needs. Dull façades can benefit from microdermabrasion, which breaks through masks of dead skin to reveal the youthful, fresh glow lurking underneath. Acne peels target blackheads with salicylic acid, vanquishing facial flaws and degreasing oily skin as it sloughs off and regenerates in two to three days. With the melasma peel, customers choose between different strengths of glycolic acids by testing which ones best polish Abraham Lincoln's face on a penny. Then, as the skin peels, the solution blanches dark patches and sunspots, the skin recovering in two to five days.

About Inverness Dermatology
Dr. Elizabeth Jacobson—a board-certified dermatologist and the voice behind ABC 3340’s _Doc Talk_—leads Inverness Dermatology's skincare specialists in resurfacing epidermises with advanced medical and cosmetic treatments. Cosmetic injectables, such as Botox, Dysport, and Juvederm, fill in or freeze fine lines, and laser hair removal, laser vein treatments, and sclerotheraphy clear physiques of unwanted hair or veins. Chemical peels come in two varieties suited to different skin types: salicylic-acid peels target oil, blackheads, and skin volcanoes by stripping away superficial layers, and glycolic-acid peels shed dry or discolored skin by breaking lipid bonds between dead cells. To administer microdermabrasion treatments, technicians employ a mechanical wand that buffs away exterior layers and reveals the fresh skin just beneath.
