What You'll Get
When your stomach is unhappy, you get a stomachache, but when your face is unhappy, it drags you around by your tongue and makes your mouth hold a pen to write yourself an angry letter. Keep your face happy with today's Groupon for enhanced LED facial treatments at Rainforest Skin Care, located in Oakland. Choose one of following options:
- $70 for one 60-minute enhanced LED facial ($140 value)
- $180 for a package of three enhanced LED facials ($420 value)
Each specialized, 60-minute LED facial begins with a deep-cleansing wash to open pores and unclog trapped particles of makeup, dust, pollutants, and stray dogs. Once primed, an exfoliating treatment preps the skin for light therapy by smoothing out rough patches, loosening dearly departed skin cells, and increasing circulation until it flows like Kid 'n Play. With the face fully prepped, out comes Rainforest's exclusive LED panel, which combines different electromagnetic wavelengths to treat fine lines and wrinkles, aging, acne and blemishes, and overall skin appearance. Blue light fights bacterial infections by detonating the tiny face invaders, while yellow light warms to increase lymphatic flow and promote healing. Green light is thought to control city traffic and decrease melanin production, helping safeguard skin from accidents and an uneven tone, while red light is applied to stimulate collagen production, fight aging, and help skin repair itself.

About Rainforest Skin Care
When Brazilian aesthetician Mariza Izaac pampers clients with facials, she also represents her home's bounty of skin-nourishing botanicals by incorporating Amazonian ingredients. Her proprietary cruelty-free skincare products are made from ingredients such as sangre de drago, buriti, cupuacu, the vitamin C-rich camu camu berry, and the antioxidant-rich acai berry. And not a single serum or cream is made with harsh ingredients, such as laureth sulfates, propylene glycol, or lanolin. Beyond performing Earth-conscious facials, she also improves complexions with LED facials and microdermabrasion, which work to minimize the signs of aging, helping clients land roles in elementary-school plays.
