Human faces are exactly like fruit: to fully appreciate one, it must be either peeled or sprayed with magical sapphire dust. Expose the inner beauty of your own fruithead with today's deal: for $49, you get either a microdermabrasion session or a chemical peel from Perceptions Image Boutique & Skin (up to a $125 value), a medi-spa in Fair Oaks. Perceptions also offers services at a Folsom location (see sidebar) on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
To polish your face like the marble scion of beauty that it is, opt for the microdermabrasion treatment ($125). Microdermabrasion gently removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, greatly reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tones, and even light scarring. As the aesthetician passes the wand over your face, a steady stream of inert microcrystalline particles abrades the dead skin and vacuums it off the face, leaving behind only the fresh, rosy glow of the healthy skin beneath. Microdermabrasion is a quick, lunch-hour procedure and is good for any skin type.
For a chemically fueled, collagen-stimulating good time, choose from one of Perceptions' three available chemical peels. The Benefit peel delivers nutrients with an antioxidant-rich formula that's gentle enough for hypersensitive skin and rosacea sufferers ($100). Try the Purity peel—an exfoliating mélange of alpha and beta hydroxy acids and an AGP complex—to clarify an oily, blemished countenance clogged with impurities such as stage makeup and melty KISS records ($125). The Blueberry Jessner peel ($100) joins soothing blueberry extract and custom-picked acids to reduce the appearance of discoloration, blemishes, lines, and uneven topography. At the booking of your appointment, an aesthetician will consult with you to help select the most appropriate method of peelification.
Perceptions' open, inviting atmosphere and friendly, experienced professionals will boost your confidence from the moment you rotate through the Japanese gingko-thatch revolving door to the other moment when you rotate through the Japanese gingko-thatch revolving door and reemerge into the light, boldly reflecting all electromagnetic radiation with your newly polished face.
