If comic books have taught us anything, it's that getting zapped with mysterious rays always gives you crime-fighting abilities—in this case, superhuman smoothness. Let your skin fulfill its dream of pummeling two-bit hoodlums with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one facial laser treatment (up to a $400 value) at Medispa Institute, a state-of-the-art facility, that offers FDA approved care for a variety of needs. Operating under the medical direction of Dr. Ban Vu, a cosmetic surgeon with more than 20 years of experience, the staff provides comprehensive solutions for aging and sensitive skin types alike. Choose from the following Groupon options:
- For $99, you get one Laser Acne Scar Reduction treatment (a $200 value), which gently penetrates into the dermis, breaking up discolored pigment and aiding into the regeneration of soft, healthy skin. Though one treatment is known to produce adequate results, the staff generally sees the most smoothened transformations after approximately four treatments.
- For $99, you get one 30-Minute European Facial plus one Laser Facial Toning treatment (a $235 total value). A pared down epidermal delight, the Mini European Facial includes a Clarisonic Brush cleansing, toning, massage with steam, as well as mask and moisturizer treatments. It stimulates collagen production, which, in turn, decreases the appearance of fine lines, discoloration, and marker-scrawled hangman games. This one-two combo can beautify and balance a range of skin types, and is typically administered four–six times over the span of a couple months.
- For $99, you get one Intense Pulse Light Photofacial Laser treatment (a $400 value). A powerful anti-aging treatment, the treatment tightens pores and exfoliates across the epidermal areas. This 30-minute process is found to be most effective after approximately five treatments, scheduled every three weeks.
The Medispa Institute
The Medispa Institute is led by not one, but two professionals who are experts in their fields: medical director Dr. Ban A. Vu and aesthetic director Bich Ngoc Nguyen. Dr. Vu has been practicing cosmetic surgery in the Houston area for more than 20 years and specializes in procedures for the Asian face and body.
The duo helms a team rounded out by highly trained laser technicians who are all members of the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, including Certified Medical Laser Safety Operator Mai Pham. Pham and her fellow staffers are particularly skilled in the treatment of Asian and ethnic skin and offer services ranging from permanent makeup and facials to blue-light therapy. They can address virtually any skin issue with laser technology, including unwanted hair, veins, or age spots—all within a clean, white-on-white facility.
