What You'll Get
Stop hiding your face under wide-brimmed hats and curtains of hair with today's Groupon to Magnolia Spa. For $50, you can indulge in a microdermabrasion facial (a $100 value) that will have you pouting and posing for the next available camera, mirror, or hunter-gatherer.
The warm and friendly aestheticians at Magnolia know skin like the back of their own skin-covered hands. The staff will cosset you in a cocoon of luxury as they gently utilize microdermabrasion to take away the dead layer of skin that rests atop your beautiful, living face. Your skin will shimmer like the surface of a lake at twilight, except not liquid, not transparent, and no one will try to skip a rock across it. Each facial targets your individual skin problems to restore balance and beauty to your face.
Conveniently located in East Nashville, Magnolia Spa's eclectic décor combines colorful artwork and lush fabrics with sleek track lighting and cozy accents. Open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Magnolia Spa makes it easy to fit a rejuvenating facial into your busy schedule.

Doctor Dubious: Skin Remover
Although microdermabrasion is now widely embraced as a safe and painless means of shedding old skin cells, it was the target of fierce criticism from the powerful Pro-Wrinkling Lobby in the 1950s. Using its influence in media and government, the lobby debuted the radio drama Doctor Dubious: Skin Remover to spread its pro-wrinkle propaganda and sow baseless distrust of dermatologists. Here’s a transcribed excerpt, complete with old-time radio sound effects:
Doctor Dubious: Come in, come in! You must be the McAllister Wife! Here for your 3:30 facial scraping, I presume?
Mrs. McAllister: Indeed, please do be quick about it, I’m late for the Women’s Dignity League Tea Social.
Doctor Dubious: No worries, Madame, it will be but a slight moment. Now, please close your eyes and rest your jaw.
Sound of screeching spider monkeys, and cage door being opened
Mrs. McAllister: Doctor Dubious, as my eyes are closed, I’m not able to fully experience my surroundings. Tell me, are you releasing spider monkeys?
Sound of monkeys being sternly hushed.
Doctor Dubious: No. Don’t be silly.
