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 (up to a $150 value) at Skin Solutions Medical Spa in Arvada.
There are three available specialty treatments, any of which are prefaced with a thorough skin analysis from a trained aesthetician to ensure that the cleansers, moisturizers, and scrubs suit your particular skin alchemy. Choose any of the following 60- to 75-minute specialty facials:
- A microdermabrasion facial with finishing mask (a $125 value) removes the face's outermost layer of dead skin cells with an exfoliating, crystal-filled mechanical device, allowing trapped layers of glowing baby skin to breathe free and discover themselves on a backpacking trip across Europe.
- A deep pore-cleansing facial (an $80 value) steams a gentle enzyme into the skin for 10 minutes, followed by cleansing and extractions (if desired). The extractions are followed with toner and an arts-and-crafts treatment of a clay mask for deep-pore excavation of dirt, oil, and lurking bridge trolls.
- A firm-and-tone hydrating facial (a $150 value) is a veritable cornucopia of delicious elements. A cherry enzyme is steamed into the skin for 10 minutes, followed by a rejuvenating mask of pumpkin and goat milk for a pick-me-up firmer than a gourd and heartier than a goat.
Each of the three procedures is also centered around a three-part cleanse; skin is steamed, cleaned, and then buffed with a carefully concocted scrub before the overall artistry is toned with an equally appropriate toner, and topped off by sunscreen for post-treatment protection from mischievous ultraviolet fingerlings.
The Skin Solutions staff, including board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, has a combined experience of more than 40 years in the world of dermis-based beautification. The entire team takes pride in providing treatments that leave faces shimmering like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it.
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.
