Like a lemon zester, a proper facial peel removes the rough outer layer of flesh to reveal the soft, lustrous, segmented face fruit beneath. Pamper palettes like tree-ripened citrus with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a laser acne facial at Skin Laser Studios in Chelsea (a $250 value).
For almost four decades, Skin Laser Studios has worked to improve the appearance, texture, and health of Chelsea's countenances by offering a plethora of skin-perfecting procedures. The laser acne facial begins with a aromatic chocolate glycolic scrub and the gentle extraction of pesky pimples and blackheads from their pore stomping grounds. Next, a skin specialist applies a peel consisting of organic glycolic cleansers followed by alpha-hydroxyl skin softeners.
Once skin squeaks with cleanliness, a talented visage virtuoso will zap clients' canvases with a Smoothbeam laser, which utilizes noninvasive light to target and heat acne-addled skin, shrinking and normalizing oil glands and promoting the growth of new, clearer collagen. After the laser has put ostentatious oil glands in their place and a nutritional mask soothes skin, fresh faces can enjoy freedom from clogs, infection, and nettlesome visits from pore-to-pore encyclopedia salesmen.
