A weathered face can help one project wisdom or blend in at Mount Rushmore but is otherwise considered undesirable. Stand out from monumental mugs with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a spa facial with skin analysis at NuSpa Medical in Homestead (up to a $169 value).
At NuSpa Medical, a physician-led med spa, licensed aestheticians treat complexions with one of five facial therapies after diagnosing epidermal ailments during a detailed skin analysis. The deep-cleansing facial ejects oily buildup with miniature slingshots, allowing pores to breathe in mists of steam before a therapeutic mask calms blemishes. Sun-damaged skin rises above pigmentation issues thanks to the vitamin C- and seaweed-infused luminous-glow facial, and fine lines flee following exposure to the anti-aging B5 gel of the reconditioning and firming treatment. The men's refining treatment first weeds ingrown hairs from skinscapes, then massages faces to power circulation and applies a tightening mask to firm skin that's become loosened from having too many clothespins stored on it.
A bright-purple couch accents the cool greens and creams of the lobby, which abounds with flowerpots and floral artwork, and sheer curtains separate the treatment chairs where services take place.
