What You'll Get
Every time you step outside, your face is targeted by UV rays, dirt, angry dogs, and the New Jersey Devils. Undo puck damage with today's Groupon: anti-aging and skin rejuvenating treatments at Seattle Medical Aesthetics, a Queen Anne medical skin center specializing in medically based, personalized skin treatments. Choose one of two packages:
- $79 for a microdermabrasion plus glycolic/salicylic chemical peel for the face and neck ($199 value)
- $139 for one Vi Peel chemical peel ($349 value)
The diamond peel microdermabrasion treatment gently polishes pores by brushing away the top microlayer of dead dermis to mitigate imperfections and reveal the freshened subsurface skin. Following the microdermabrasion, you'll receive you choice of one of two chemical peels, based on your skin type and personal preferences. For dry and aging skin, opt for gentle glycolic peel, which employs alpha hydroxy acids to activate cell renewal to brighten dulled dermises with instantaneous results. Or, for acne-prone pores or to treat a pox that has been placed upon your house, choose the deep-penetrating salicylic peel treatment, which improves recurring acne and helps control breakouts.
Seattle Medical's Vi Peel is a specialized, more aggressive form of chemical peel. If unsavory characters such as sun damage, weather exposure, and aging are crashing your face's party, the Vi Peel acts as a serious-business bouncer to banish them quickly and effectively— after consultation and discussion, the peel itself lasts about 10 minutes. Combining trichloroacetic acid, retinol, Vitamin C, beta salicylic acid, and phenol to almost painlessly dissolve problem spots, uneven textures, and even treat hyperpigmentation. There is significant peeling for two to three days after the Vi Peel as the dull, dead skin sloughs off. The Vi Peel package comes with a generous take-home peel accelerator kit including sunscreen and moisturizer to keep skin happy and healthy, as well as before and after pictures so clients can see the effects.
The warm and friendly aestheticians at Seattle Medical Aesthetics know skin like the back of their own skin-covered hands. The MD-run facial fixerie specializes in medically based treatments, so you can rest assured that your dermal dusting or trouble-spot dissolution will be completed in a safe and comfortable environment. Call ahead for an appointment.

About Seattle Medical Aesthetics
At the helm of Seattle Medical Aesthetics are Drs. Susan Petcoff and Lynne Haspedis, who have both been practicing medicine in Seattle since 1988. Both board-certified physicians also come from backgrounds in obstetrics and gynecology, making them particularly qualified to address the concerns of women who flock to the center for anti-aging treatments. Skin-smoothing injections of Botox and Juvéderm are a center specialty, as are prescription-grade chemical peels and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments that do everything from correcting uneven pigmentation and restricting hair growth to helping skin reminisce about its disco-dancing days. Licensed aesthetician Darla Green is also on hand to recommend products by SkinCeuticals, ViDerm, and Glytone, and to share tips she learned while working as a makeup artist for film and TV.
