What You'll Get
Over time, the human face collects sedimentary layers composed of breakup tears, cat hair, and stardust. Slough off the excess with today's Groupon. For $49, you get a Visia skin consultation (a $50 value) to tailor treatment to your skin's unique needs and a diamond microdermabrasion facial with LED light therapy (a $165 value) at Sonterra Laser Med Spa, located just off the intersection of Loop 1604 and Hwy 281.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that removes the face's stratum corneum, or outermost surface of the skin. These dead cells stifle the under-face like the Mona Lisa stifles the teddy-bear picnic painted beneath it. The friendly, licensed aestheticians at Sonterra will deeply cleanse the face to remove any surface impurities before performing the diamond microderm treatment, a crystal-free process that uses a diamond-tip head for the removal of dead skin cells. The aesthetician then applies a serum tailored to each individual's skin, maximizing the results of the treatment with nutrients and antioxidants. This serum plumbs the pores while the LED light therapy scans the skin, a proven method for fighting acne and promoting collagen and elastin production to reduce the appearance of aging. Finally, the kind, healing hands of your aesthetician will apply a nutrient-rich moisturizer that protects newly excavated baby skin from sun damage.
The healthy glow following a microdermabrasion treatment can come in handy during job interviews, dates, and power outages. There are few places better to achieve this glow than Sonterra Laser Med Spa. The trained medical staff is skilled enough to address all skin types and derma-issues. The spa itself is beautifully appointed in warm shades of desert red and brown, while Buddha heads and lotus blossoms add a touch of Eastern spiritual clarity to the clear skin that emerges from its doors.

- I've had a single Skin Rejuvenation treatment, I noticed a large improvement in skin texture and firmness. I even saw an old collegue [sic] and she gave me a compliment on how great my skin looked. The staff at Sonter\ra [sic] Laser is so helpful. They take the time to get an in depth skin analysis and explain it thoroughly. The facility is clean and inviting place. The skin consultant Christina was great she was patient, and thorough and Dr. Kumar was very pleasant to visit with as well. I plan to continue further treatments with them, I highly recommend giving them a visit. – debmobilitystore, Citysearch
- I thoroughly enjoyed going to Sonterra Laser Med Spa and have already recommended it to several friends already. The staff is very thorough, professional and friendly. I even received a follow up phone call a few days after my treatment, something I have not had happen ever before. The staff is not pushy on products, give honest feedback and the prices are very reasonable. I have already booked future appointments for different treatments. Thanks Nelly and Sonterra Laser Med Spa! – clk1968, Citysearch

About Sonterra Laser Med Spa
Under the direction of Dr. Sanjiv R. Kumar, a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Medical School, Sonterra Laser Med Spa's licensed aestheticians and laser technicians efface signs of aging with attention to detail that garners the spa regular attention on KENS 5's Great Day SA. Advanced skin-analysis machines scan faces before services to give technicians a closer look at bacteria, sun damage, and wrinkles not visible to the naked or clothed eye. The results determine what skincare services best suit each client, including glo minerals chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal-filler injections. The spa was recently included in USA TODAY's "10Best" list for spas in San Antonio.
