To attain the rosy glow of flushed cheeks, eighteenth-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: for $25, you get an Afterglow facial (a $50 value) at Super Boutique in Berkeley.
Newly founded by renowned aging expert, inventor, and board-certified dermatologist Dr. Nicholas Perricone, Super Boutique uses the techniques and products pioneered by Dr. Perricone to make skin look and feel healthier, younger, and more willing to join in a pickup game of football. The Afterglow facial starts with an ultrasonic exfoliation that removes the outermost layer of skin with high-frequency sound waves, leaving the face as smooth and dewy as a newborn slip 'n' slide. An LED light then illuminates the face, inundating it with red and blue light, which kills acne-causing bacteria and stimulates collagen growth—resulting in clearer, firmer skin and a decreased vulnerability to the color yellow.
Five Yelpers give Super Boutique a perfect five stars:
- This is the best facial I've gotten in terms of results. This is not your typical massage based facial- it was more like going to a dermatologist's office which is fine, since I could see a big difference in my pores and lines after my first facial. – Alexandra P.
