Looking younger often requires standing next to something much older, such as a brontosaurus femur or the future. Skip into the past with today’s Groupon: for $175, you get four cellulite-reduction treatments from Perfect Touch (up to a $400 value) on Bledsoe Street.
Perfect Touch, a 2010 pick for best spa from the readers of Fort Worth Weekly, houses a corps of aestheticians who reduce unwanted cellulite from clients' thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, or face. The painless, 45-minute TriActive procedure smoothes away cellulite over the course of four relaxing sessions, leaving skin with the youthful beauty of a haiku written by a baby. A mechanical massage distends the epidermis, enhancing microcirculation and improving lymphatic discharge before lasers penetrate the tissue, stimulating fibroblasts for collagen production. Clients exit with smoother, healthier skin, as well as a newfound calm imbued by the spa's tranquil interior, filled with dark stone tiles, burgundy walls, and softly glowing rice-paper lanterns.
The readers of Fort Worth Weekly didn't say why they named Perfect Touch the Best Spa of 2013, but it's not hard to hazard a guess—or a dozen. Take the warm, private treatment rooms and soft music that backdrop Swedish massages and hot-stone therapy, for instance, or the lineup of Dermalogica products that skin specialists combine into custom facial treatments. There's also a more technological side to the spa: a cosmetic laser system that tightens the skin, and a Cynosure TriActive system that helps minimize the appearance of cellulite.
An entire second facet of Perfect Glow—Perfect Touch—focuses solely on tanning. UV beds use ultra-pressure lamps for quicker tans, and airbrush technicians evenly mist the skin with vegan, organic, and paraben-free solutions that, like the newest breeds of dogs, emit a subtle raspberry-almond fragrance when wet.
