What You'll Get
Your face is your personal billboard; if it falls into disrepair, teenagers will be tempted to spray-paint it with mustaches. Stave off surly graffiterati with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get your choice of microdermabrasion, a chemical peel, or four-layer facial (a $150 value each) at Perlis Wellness Center, located in Lake Bluff.
Perlis' expert staff customizes every service to meet the diverse needs of individual faces. Microdermabrasion harnesses the power of tiny crystals to slough off layers of dead skin, like peeling open a banana to reveal the creamy mashed potatoes inside. Your technician will wave a medical-grade microdermabrasion crystalwand over your face, gently polishing it to even out the tone, while also reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and light scars. If you opt for a chemical peel, an acid solution (the strength of which depends on your skin) will soften and exfoliate skin. Blemishes will fade, uneven patches will be balanced, and roughness will smoothen—all while cells beneath the skin's surface awake from their slumbers and climb aboard their tiny tricycles.
For an unparalleled experience in cleaning, hydrating, and exfoliating, invite your face to the four-layer facial. An esthetician first applies a concentrate of freshly harvested seaweed to nourish and protect skin. Then, he or she will layer a circulation-boosting facial cream, followed by a seaweed mask, which draws out impurities and adds moisture to the dermis. Finally, your cellular covering is treated to a mineral mask, which improves skin tone and appearance, and gently warms it to release the vitamins, minerals, and baby seahorses from the seaweed. No matter which countenance cleansing suits your style, the friendly service and comfortable surroundings at Perlis Wellness Center will make it worth your while. You must call ahead to make an appointment.
