To attain the rosy glow of flushed cheeks, 18th-century ladies often took snowballs to the face, nuzzled fire-ant hills, and bench-pressed child princes. Give your complexion a painless glow with today’s Groupon to Orchid Aesthetics Medical Spa on the Upper West Side. Choose between two skin-tingling packages:
- For $49, you get a wrinkle-reduction facial (a $110 value).
- For $79, you get an oxygenating marine vitality facial or a thalgodermyl acne facial, plus your choice of microdermabrasion, IPL, a glycolic chemical peel, or a mandelic chemical peel (up to a $345 value).
Led by a licensed aesthetic physician, Orchid Aesthetics Medical Spa revitalizes tired countenances with an array of high-tech, personalized facial treatments. Orchid Aesthetics employs facial massaging technology to conduct a wrinkle-reduction facial, which uses ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production and tone sagging muscles without the hassle of jaw-barbell reps or forehead crunches. Stressed-out skin marred by external pollutants and smarmy backhanded compliments can seek refuge with an oxygenating marine vitality facial, and acne-plagued visages will revel in the thalgodermyl acne facial, in which clarifying effects are aided by antibacterial serum and a hydrating vitamin infusion.
Give your wink factory an extra boost with a bonus facial treatment. Intense pulsed light (IPL) (a $250 value) uses laser light to treat skin issues such as rosacea and discoloration. Those who opt for the microdermabrasion (a $130 value) will benefit from a gentle burnishing that vanquishes large pore hordes, unsightly pigmentations, and sun-damaged skin. The glycolic or mandelic chemical peels (a $145 value each), meanwhile, tear down the face's dead-skin wall, prompting suppressed cells to radiantly rejoice like it's 1989—when every east Berliner got a free state-sponsored facial.

Orchid Aesthetics Medical Spa
As a board-certified anesthesiologist and licensed aesthetic physician who has even trained in cosmetic acupuncture, Dr. Roxana B. Kerns, M.D. is well-versed in nearly every type of anti-aging treatment. There's one she doesn't offer, however—invasive surgery. That's because she's mastered a range of techniques that accomplish what was once only achieved through surgical procedures.
For example, instead of subjecting patients to the pain of rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, Dr. Kerns is able to smooth out the nose's profile with injectable fillers and banish dark circles under the eyes with fat-transfer techniques and laser treatments. She was also selected as an expert injector by the National Laser Institute, making her uniquely qualified to administer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections that target fine lines on the face. Orchid Aesthetics also features an arsenal of laser technology designed to mend aesthetic issues of all types, including wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, unwanted hair, and spider veins.
In her quest to stamp out sun damage, Dr. Kerns recently developed her own line of organic skincare formulas that hydrate, boost collagen production, and reflect UV rays away from the face and onto the nearest pool party.
