Faces, like potatoes, must be scrubbed and buffed to clear away excess dirt, remove dry skin, and prevent the emergence of extra eyes. Buff away unsightly blemishes with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a Lite Jessner chemical peel at Sewickley Med Spa (a $175 value).
The skin-smoothing staff at Sewickley Med Spa wields more than 30 years combined experience to deftly refresh face frontispieces with chemical peels. A complimentary skin consultation kicks off the one-hour Lite Jessner peel, allowing pamperists to closely examine the client's skin type and identify problem zones such as wrinkles, blemishes, or faded Sharpie mustaches. After an enzyme mask and acetone scrub, they'll slather these target areas with 6-12% Jessner’s solution, a personalized blend of alpha and beta hydroxy acids and Resorcinol, followed by a coat of 0.3% Tretinoin solution. Lastly, faces are coated with sunscreen and an epidermal repair ointment that rambles around the face tightening pipe joints with a tiny set of wrenches.
There’s no downtime after the treatment, although potential side effects of a newly softened complexion include redness, mild peeling, and being mistaken for a time traveler from your own past. For new patients, Sewickley Med Spa recommends a series of three to five treatments spaced four to six weeks apart for best results.
