Studies show a high percentage of Americans consider themselves overweight, and an even higher percentage believe they are being chased by Frankenstein's monster. Alter self-perceptions with today's Groupon: for $99, you get an IPL facial treatment (a $300 value) or $200 worth of select med-spa services at MedEstics, with locations in Newtown and Sellersville.
MedEstics' board-certified physicians combine advanced laser technology with patient education and individual care to soothe skin problems and beautify bodies. The IPL facial treatment infuses skin with light energy to treat problems such as rosacea, pigmentation, general photo-damage, and acute vampirism. The IPL's sapphire crystal window cools skin to stave off burns and blisters, minimizing irritation and discomfort during the procedure.
Alternately, customers can mix and match med-spa services for all-over skin rejuvenation and hair removal. A HydraFacial infusion peel wicks away dead skin cells and rains moisturizing serum onto the newly uncovered plains of the human facelands ($85+). Laser vein removal, performed in conjunction with comforting skin-cooling, chases unsightly veins from the face and legs ($100+). The $200 value of this Groupon can also be used toward laser hair removal ($300+ for four sessions) or facial laser-peel ($550+) for skin smooth enough to make freshly polished bowling balls roll themselves into the gutter with shame. This Groupon is not valid toward Botox or other fillers.
Dr. Bruce Richman, who boasts more than 20 years of medical experience, approaches each patient's cosmetic needs with a technical as well as artistic eye. Before rejuvenating visitors' corporeal shells, MedEstics's specialists seek to educate prospective clients by hosting fact-based consultations, which can explain the treatments, the equipment, and the major differences between humans and mannequins. The center brims with modern med-spa technology, including crystal-free microdermabrasion devices and a ClearScan laser system designed to zap unwanted stubble.
