Human faces experience a lifetime of wear and tear from gravity, driving into the wind, and pineapple-pie-eating contests. Restore your cheeks' original splendor with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a microdermabrasion (a $120 value) at North Carolina Center for Dermatology near Southpoint on Fayetteville Road in Durham.
The medical director and founder of North Carolina Center for Dermatology, Dr. Jeffrey W. Scales, approaches skincare with a sensitivity to dermal diversity, leading the entire staff in providing clients with customized, attentive care. During your microdermabrasion treatment, one of the center's responsive specialists will guide a small, handheld dry-exfoliation devise over the surface of your facade. The high-tech gadget sprays tiny crystals across the face to gently and glamorously loosen expired cells, while suction removes debris for good. The process also works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, normalize overall skin tone, and tow illegally parked Mack trucks.
