Microdermabrasion makes faces look younger, allowing parents to pose as their own children during high-school football tryouts. Put on your game face with this Groupon.
- $249 for three microdermabrasion treatments (a $420 value)
Each 45- to 60-minute treatment exfoliates the outermost layer of skin with a stream of aluminum oxide crystals. By sloughing off dull cells, microdermabrasion accelerates renewal, helping even skin tone, reduce the appearance of some types of acne scarring, and diminish the effects of sun damage. Each session includes an application of alpha-hydroxy acid or an enzyme-based pre-exfoliant—depending on each client’s skin—as well as steam, extractions, and a soothing mask. Clients can expect little to no downtime after their treatment.
