Taking care of one’s skin leads to a steady stream of compliments, just like hanging out with Grandma’s knitting group. Get complexions noticed with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a medical acne facial and consultation at Oncore Medi-Spa (a $100 value).
The official spa of the Edmonton Eskimos cheer team, Oncore Medi-Spa's medical aestheticians use their acne-specific prowess to battle blemishes during medical acne facials under the guidance of a registered nurse with more than 20 years of experience. After an individual consultation, the half-hour treatment begins with a custom-selected cleanser that dissipates surface grime and the graffiti art of rebellious pustules. Aestheticians then pilfer pores with extractions before targeting nasal comedones with microdermabrasion, which employs exfoliating minerals to evict blackheads while polishing the skin's texture. A zinc and sulfur mask dissolves subcutaneous oil and a skin-specific moisturizer imbibes cheeks with dewy radiance. In order to let skin fully process the products, the staff recommends avoiding makeup for a few days after the treatment and dodging the sun with the use of mineral powder sunscreens and military-grade camouflage.
