Every time dead skin cells are removed from your body, they reveal a new layer of skin, until finally, all that remains is a Russian matryoshka doll painted to resemble your spirit animal. Reveal the radiance that lies beneath with today's Groupon: for $48, you get a facial spa package at Skin Alive in Mequon (a $175 value). The package includes:
- A microdermabrasion
- A mini facial with a face and décolleté massage
- A choice of a foot or hand-and-arm massage
Skin Alive merges its beauty expertise with that of the Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics to form a single, in-depth center to cater to the study and practice of physiology and skin conditions. During the initial microdermabrasion, an experienced aesthetician pelts visages with micronized crystals that scare off dried skin, leaving plots of smooth surfaces free from wrinkles or pore potholes. An enzyme exfoliation clean-up crew follows the diamond tip jet to brush away sloughed-off debris and sparkling dust like a janitor in a glitter factory. The Skin Alive expert customizes SkinCeuticals and Obagi products according to the client's skin type. As facial and décolleté massages work to seal in revamped countenances, a choice of a foot or hand-and-arm massage soothes the shock absorbers of runners and circus performers forced to hold perpetual handstands.
Skin Alive and its aesthetician school, Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics, are devoted to the study and practice of skincare. Clients can choose to visit the hands-on student-learning center for aesthetic services performed by students under instructor supervision, or head to the Skin Alive spa for services performed by a licensed professional. Both offer basic beauty services, such as facials, peels, and waxing, but the licensed aestheticians at Skin Alive can also slough off dead skin cells with diamond-tip microdermabrasion, rejuvenate skin with lasers, and vanquish unwelcome hair with laser hair-removal treatments that leave skin smoother than a cue ball smothered in olive oil.
