Faces, like khakis and the space-time continuum, look best when wrinkle-free. Iron out head creases with today's Groupon to Skin Essence. Choose between two options:
• For $15, you get an ion cleanse (a $30 value).
• For $110, you get a nonsurgical facelift (a $225 value).
Combining more than 20 years of people-pampering experience with innovative Dermalogica products, Skin Essence approaches professional skincare and cosmetic services with a holistic focus on health and relaxation. Revitalize wizened visages with a nonsurgical facelift, a 60-minute session that combines three beautifying, noninvasive skin treatments. The Revitalight treatment employs the therapeutic glow of specially designed LEDs to enliven weary skin cells, causing them to whistle while they work on restoring the face's youthful features. A subsequent exfoliating Diamond Peel treatment—a session of diamond-enhanced microdermabrasion—and a chemical peel remove dead skin cells from the face, revealing a glowing layer of strip-minable gold. Alternatively, draw out a mélange of toxins with an ion cleanse, which utilizes an ionic footbath to help safely detoxify the body. The ions generated during the 30-minute bath can extract waste, help clear the lymphatic system, and remove chemicals deposited by tobacco.
Skin Essence wraps its guests in opulence, exuding regality with classical archways, elegant draping, and ornate lighting fixtures. Warm earth tones placate eyeballs overworked by Magic-Eye puzzles, and sand-colored tiling provides a comfortable ambiance for crustaceans looking to shed their shells.
