Faces, like khakis and the space-time continuum, look best when wrinkle-free. Iron out head creases with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a medical-grade microdermabrasion treatment and a customized dermal peel for the face and neck at The Skinmedispa by Dr. Anthony Geroulis in Northfield (up to a $224 value). The Skinmedispa is a division of the North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery.
Led by Dr. Anthony Geroulis, ranked in the top 10% in his region by U.S. News & World Report and awarded the AAAHC certificate of accreditation, Skinmedispa's licensed aestheticians work to produce smooth, radiant, and refreshed complexions and diminish fine lines, acne scarring, blotchiness, and hyperpigmentation with high-tech microdermabrasion treatments and customized collagen- and elastin-inducing facial peels. Before the treatments, aestheticians consult with patients to discuss the treatment plan, address specific skin issues, and swap piecrust tips. During the microdermabrasion, an epidermal high-tech wand sweeps ultra-fine FDA-approved aluminum-oxide crystals at a 90-degree angle across facial terrain. The exfoliation dispels cliques of dead cells from the skin's surface, tightening pores and stimulating the ascension of fledgling cells while evening out skin tone.
For the medical-grade facial peel, uniformed aestheticians customize peels from blends of lactic, citric, salicylic and other formulations which induce collagen and elastin. Each peel is tailored to individual patients' skin types and problems and can help calm rosacea, target and repair sun damage or prematurely aged skin, brighten dull and tired complexions, or grant its wearer up to three wishes.
The treatment wraps up with a nutritive, anti-oxidant rich moisturizing infusion as well as an invisible UVA/UVB blocker with active ingredients including non-sensitizing micronized zinc oxide to provide optimal photoprotection. The treatment as a whole helps smooth, firm, and re-energize skin, and, like a puppy with a tennis-ball machine, doesn't require downtime.

Skinmedispa by Dr. Anthony Geroulis
Though many plastic surgeons take pride in the way they can sculpt the body, not many are actually accomplished sculptors like board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony Geroulis. He strives to weave the artistry of his sculptures into each procedure and leave his patients with a natural look, and has garnered media mentions from the likes of Chicago Magazine and North Shore Magazine. He directs Skinmedispa, a fully accredited medical facility and division of the North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, with this philosophy as well. His team of licensed aestheticians, clinical technologists, and certified therapists, on the other hand, wield only noninvasive treatments to improve the look and feel of the face, skin, and body. Their services boost collagen production, balance pigmentation, and give skin a glow rivaled only by an active volcano that has recently fallen in love or swallowed a flaming Cheeto.
