A beautiful face acts as an impermeable container that keeps inner beauty from escaping, just as a Hot Pocket's flaky outer crust acts as a vessel that makes its molten innards edible while skateboarding. Heat up your inner glow with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a HydraFacial and a facial massage at Fox Valley Plastic Surgery's Renaissance Medi Spa in Oshkosh (a $150 value).
Professional, licensed aestheticians at the Renaissance Medi Spa administer skin-rejuvenating procedures designed for all skin types. Preceded by a facial massage, the HydraFacial uses a hydrating process to refine skin texture and decrease the skin irritation that results from too many Eskimo kisses. Aestheticians exfoliate dead skin cells and extract impurities using a cell-plumping HydroPeel vacuum tip during each 45-minute HydraFacial. Simultaneous infusion with cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing serums ensures that skin remains dewy during the forced housecleaning of hoarder pores. The entire 60- to 75-minute procedure often results in a newly radiant skin tone, though the spa recommends up to six treatments to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and creases from sleeping on piles of gold doubloons.
Fox Valley Plastic Surgery
Wisconsin-born Dr. David Janssen began practicing medicine in the Fox Valley over twenty years ago. Since then, he’s dedicated more than two decades to helping his patients look and feel their best with innovative cosmetic and reconstructive surgery techniques. Together with fellow board-certified surgeon Dr. William Doubek and Dr. Marc Serret, Dr. Janssen creates custom treatment plans based on each patient’s needs and desires. In fact, patient input is an integral part of the process, whether the doctors are shrinking silhouettes with non-invasive CoolSculpting laser liposuction, or identifying and fighting the underlying causes of migraine headaches. They treat veins large and small with waves of thermal energy and localized laser beams, while Botox and Dysport touch-ups fight sagging skin and fine lines.
Like the palace of a Venetian doge, or the garage of an eccentric billionaire, the Renaissance Center is built in the image of a Renaissance-era Italian villa. Sporting a picturesque colonnade, peaked clay-tile rooftops, and a façade of sand-colored brick, the center greets patients with old-world charm as soon as they step out of their cars. Inside, parchment-colored walls, cozy furnishing, and potted plants sit in full view of the center’s most stunning feature: a recreation of the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
