A face can both hide and reveal a person's age, just as a hand can both hide and reveal a child's nose after an uncle has mysteriously removed it. Reward countenances and the bodies they occupy with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get a one-hour Ultimate facial (a $99 value) and a 30-minute infrared sauna treatment (a $25 value) at The Spa at Sedona in Middletown (a $124 total value).
The expertly trained aestheticians at The Spa at Sedona lavish patrons with an array of services that rejuvenate and relax bodies. The Ultimate facial fuses the exfoliative power of microdermabrasion with the skin-tightening talents of a Synergie treatment to create a one-two complexion-cosseting punch. A savvy skinscaper tones epidermal planes with a Synergie vacuum massage that smoothes skin and hot-wires sluggish circulation to restore pep to visages exhausted from perpetually perplexed expressions. Once smile turbines have undergone thorough dust-busting, a microdermabrasion treatment exorcises cheeks of loitering dead cells while diminishing the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and temporary leopard-spot tattoos.
Post-facial, bodies shimmy into a three- or four-person infrared sauna for 30 minutes of balmy stress reduction that can coax between 600 and 800 calories out of bodies. The sauna employs calmative dry heat to infiltrate weary skin, promoting subcutaneous detoxification and gently restoring suppleness to stiff joints. Pampered figures leave the spa feeling refreshed and serene, sporting physique sheaths that glow with the youthful brilliance of a chess prodigy at a highlighter party.
