Studies show that your face is the part of your body least likely to wear shoes and most likely to consume Funyuns. Reward this hard-working frontispiece with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one specialty facial at Skin Solutions Medical Spa in Arvada. This Groupon is valid for one of the following four facials: a microdermabrasion facial with finishing mask (a $125 value), a multivitamin hydrating and firming facial (a $125 value), a stimulating deep-pore-cleansing facial (a $125 value), or a Mommy to Be facial (up to a $125 value).
The Skin Solutions staff, including board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, has a combined experience of more than 40 years in the world of epidermis-based beautification. A thorough skin analysis from a trained aesthetician prefaces each treatment to ensure that the cleansers, moisturizers, and scrubs suit your particular skin alchemy. Each of the four procedures is centered around a three-part cleanse; skin is steamed, cleaned, and then buffed with a carefully concocted scrub before the application of an equally appropriate toner developed by a collective of beauty-minded printers.
Microdermabrasion removes the face's outermost layer of expired skin cells with an exfoliating, crystal-filled mechanical device, allowing trapped layers of glowing baby skin to breathe and discover themselves by backpacking through Europe. During the multivitamin facial, an aesthetician infuses parched skin with a pineapple enzyme steam before soaking each cell in a refreshing, face-firming elixir stuffed with vitamins, natural extracts, and more.
The deep-pore-cleansing facial steams a gentle enzyme into the skin for 10 minutes, followed by cleansing and extractions (if desired). An arts-and-crafts mask treatment then performs a deep-pore-excavation of dirt, oil, and lurking bridge trolls. Women nurturing belly-buns can indulge in a well-earned Mommy to Be facial, which treats common pregnancy-induced rosacea, acne, and more while replenishing the expecting visage by channeling the mental image of baby's first moonwalk.
Although Skin Solutions Medical Spa sometimes features discounted prices online, today's Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Skin Solutions Medical Spa
Donna Lapetina, owner and head aesthetician at Skin Solutions Medical Spa, has spent the last decade caring for aging skin—including her own. Donna and her team work their age-defying magic under the direction of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, whose career includes time as a flight surgeon, a lieutenant commander in the military, and a volunteer speaker on skin cancer. The staff’s specialty services include microdermabrasion, peels, and facials, as well as intensive acne treatments. Dr. Boyle performs all Botox and dermal-filler procedures herself to safely keep crow’s-feet, frown lines, and worry lines at bay. Clients receive their treatments in private, earth-toned rooms that mix the serenity of a spa with the professionalism of a medical office.
Rather than buying leftover potions from local sorcerers, Skin Solutions Medical Spa has developed its own line of products, including cleansers, eye creams, and an exfoliating scrub. The gentle solutions are formulated with ingredients such as green-tea extract, oil of calendula, and cranberry extract.
