Before the advent of the demilitarized neck, faces and bodies were in constant, violent competition. Soothe both sides of the never-ending beauty war with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a one-hour Swedish massage and a microdermabrasion treatment at Blue Diamond Body in McKinney (a $165 total value).
Blue Diamond Body relaxes and revitalizes bodies, faces, and minds with an array of beauty and wellness treatments. Performed by an aesthetician with more than 19 years of experience, the microdermabrasion treatment (a $100 value) gently abrades the outer layers of dead skin cells with a stream of microcrystalline particles and pencil erasers. The deep exfoliation lessens the appearance of acne scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and fine lines, leaving behind a radiant complexion.
With the 60-minute Swedish massage (a $65 value), an eight-year massage-therapy veteran drains stress and anxiety from the body and mind with fluid strokes in the direction of heart-bound blood and mind-bound screenplay ideas. The massage specialist kneads, taps, and applies circular pressure to stiff or stressed muscles, increasing the blood's oxygen levels, improving circulation, and relieving built-up tension.
