Smooth skin is like freshly frosted birthday cake: it looks so delicious that no one cares how old you are. Flaunt face cakes with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a microdermabrasion treatment at JK SkinCare (a $100 value).
JK SkinCare's aesthetician-in-chief, Jacklyn Kieu, helps patrons to affect youthful appearances with a range of beautifying treatments. The gentle, noninvasive microdermabrasion session exfoliates the surface of the skin with natural diamond crystals and whisks away dead skin cells, never to be heard from again until they're revived for a beauty-pageant horror miniseries. Meanwhile, suction from a vacuum stimulates blood circulation and collagen proteins. Divest of its grimy outer layer, newly smooth skin can shine without the hindrance of the fine lines, wrinkles, and expired raisin bran that would normally hold it back. The 30-minute treatment causes little to no pain and requires no downtime.
JK Skincare & Spa
Helmed by aesthetician-in-chief Jacklyn, JK Skincare & Spa refreshes exteriors with everything from glycolic peels and body waxes to Shellac manicures and permanent makeup. Under Jacklyn’s guidance, specialists restore epidermal sheen with facials and chemical peels, including diamond-peel microdermabrasion, which fights signs of aging such as wrinkles or mouths still frowning about Prohibition.
As soon as aching muscles come into play, the spa’s massage therapists take over, kneading bodies according to Swedish and deep-tissue modalities. The spa team also delves into the holistic realm with ear-candling treatments that draw out wax, dirt, and commercial jingles stuck in inner-ear canals.
