Human faces experience a lifetime of wear and tear from gravity, driving into the wind, and pineapple-pie-eating contests. Restore your cheeks' original splendor with today's Groupon: for $62, you get a microdermabrasion treatment at Sophia’s Salon and Spa in La Mesa (a $125 value).
Sophia’s specializes in the art of microdermabrasion to polish, revitalize, and reset age-indicating clocks on ornery skin. During each 45-minute session, faces succumb to a high-pressure spray of fine natural corundum crystals that slough off layers of dead cells and fine-line highways to reveal paved cheekbones beneath. Skin also meets the scrubbed-in strength of the Belladerma unit, an FDA-approved wrinkle weapon that absolves faces from footprints left by pygmy crows or Father Time. The treatment shrinks oversized pores deep and improves tone and texture by reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Clients often feel the sensation of being slightly sunburnt, windburnt, or the target of Don Rickles's standup, leaving the salon with a special healing cream sample for at-home soothing.
Benevolent beauty maven Sophia Brodsky, a seasoned aesthetician with nearly 40 years of industry experience, helms Sophia's calming salon and spa space. The quaint beauty bastion hums with the buzz of conversation in English, Spanish, Russian, and Vietnamese emanating from her team of beauticians. Amid the joyous clamor, microdermabrasion hopefuls wait and read magazines or contemplate their pending transformations into overgrown infants.
Though Sophia's Salon and Spa features various discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal for a single microdermabrasion treatment.
