With today's unpredictable job market, hair reduction becomes an increasingly solid investment for humans as marine parks scramble to fill jobs vacated by dolphins on strike. Add versatility to your curriculum vitae with today's Groupon to Second Skin at Ivory Salon & Spa Choose between the following options:
• For $99, you get six EPL hair-reduction treatments on the bikini zone, underarm, upper lip, lower lip, eyebrows, or chin (up to a $495 value). All treatments must be used on the same area.
• For $99, you get three SilkPeel Dermalinfusion microdermabrasions (a $477 value).
Second Skin at Ivory Salon & Spa smoothes bodies to a velvety sheen through the intense-pulsed-light technology of the Chromogenex Phaser-EPL unit. In six sessions, a certified medical aesthetician descruffs bikini zones (a $495 value), underarms (a $445 value), or the upper or lower lip and chin (a $245 value each) by sending 150-joule pulses of nonionizing light energy deep into the hair’s soul. Follicles collapse, and hair falls out in about two weeks, reluctant to return under fear that the Phaser-EPL unit will defeat them once more. Patients typically experience mild discomfort akin to the snapping of a rubber band or the pinch of a distant aunt, and any pink or redness generally dissipates within a few hours. Second Skin recommends four to seven sessions to achieve desired results depending on skin and hair type, and newly silky pelts become eligible for half off maintenance pricing after completing the sixth hair-reduction treatment.
The SilkPeel Dermalinfusion delivers a wet microdermabrasion free of crystals or chemical exfoliants, inviting cells to drink a skin-specific hydrating topical solution. Done in about 30 minutes, the treatment can service any area, usually the face, neck, chest, or hands, and requires no downtime. Skin may be slightly pink afterward but usually fades, like a honeybee romance, within 30 minutes. Results may be seen after one treatment, though Second Skin advises four to six treatments spaced 7–10 days apart for more lasting results.
Second Skin Medspa
Second Skin Medspa, helmed by licensed medical aesthetician Rose Cruz, pampers and retouches skin while adhering to stringent safety and sanitation standards. Cruz draws on more than 14 years of experience of practicing medical aesthetics in Vancouver and Toronto to perform chemical peels, banish acne, and care for diabetic feet, a specialty she learned at the North American School of Podology. IPL laser hair removal leaves skin smooth, and fractional skin resurfacing and photofacials help to fade fine lines and restore a youthful appearance without requiring one to eat play-doh. The spa also treats nails with relaxing manicures and pedicures that promote foot health and include a soak in a sanitary pipeless tub.
In the waiting room, a grid of circular mirrors reflects teal and white decor as clients sink into a wide couch with pillows. During pedicures, guests can rest on a plush white couch, stretch an arm over an ebony side table, and inhale gentle aromas from a diffuser in the corner.
