Body wraps were invented by the Egyptians, who somehow knew mankind would one day need mummies to play the saxophone solos in Halloween-party songs. Do the mash with today's Groupon: for $40, you get your choice of an infrared body wrap (a $150 value) or a SkinBella facial (a $120 value) at Sousan Med Spa & Skin Care in Highland Village.
The bright, spacious spa begins its hydrofusion infrared therapy by cocooning corpi inside a multi-sensory spa capsule. The capsule increases the body's temperature using far-infrared heat and vitamin-infused mist. Though the session is peaceful and relaxing, you'll sweat out the same amount you'd sweat fleeing from a Godzilla for 10–15 kilometers and in the process will flush out the body's deepest, dankest toxins, which the spa then distills and bottles. On top of this, an hour of infrared therapy combined with the body wrap can burn up to 2,000 calories, or one standard metric Cinnabon bite.
The SkinBella facial can get the same results as a microdermabrasion minus the harsh, messy crystal particles. Using a customized blend of Oxygen Botanicals products and a high-tech bi-elastic blade, Sousan first clears away the face's dead skin, oil spills, and cosmetic residue with a high-speed oscillation that is gentle enough to treat sensitive, rosacea, and acne-riddled skin. Next, an invigorating second pass gets Gollums glowing like glowy honey, and a final moisturization leaves skin looking smooth, supple, and pampered.

Sousan Med Spa
While Sousan's repertoire of skincare treatments is backed by advanced technology, you wouldn't guess that upon entering the spa, where a candlelit reception area furnished with velvety wingback chairs lulls waiting patients with the creature comforts of yesteryear. Behind the scenes, though, epidermises are dazzled with a selection of lasers, infrared therapy, and radio-frequency treatments that represent the forefront of contemporary technology and helped put the local fountain of youth out of business.
