Regular facial care can lead to a glowing complexion, compliments from total strangers, and the ability to purchase Happy Meals without a fake ID. Retaste the cuisine of childhood with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a medical skincare treatment at Plastic Surgery Specialists in Edina (up to a $115 value). After a brief consultation, a medical aesthetician will decide which treatment—either a chemical peel or microdermabrasion—is best suited for each patient's skin.
Dr. Allen Van Beek and his staff of cosmetic gurus grant beauty wishes with a number of procedures and treatments based on the needs of their patients. Reduce fine lines and wrinkles from faces with a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, both of which increase the skin's ability to maintain hydration, vital when dancing cheek to cheek with a sponge cutout in the shape of Andrew Jackson. Microdermabrasion employs a mechanical form of exfoliation, whereas the chemical peel exfoliates via liquid, much as nature exfoliates the ground with rain and poets exfoliate their sonnets with tears. Each 60-minute treatment improves overall skin health and reduces hyperpigmentation.
