Though pursued throughout history, the Fountain of Youth lost its appeal when explorers who hopped into its waters were immediately kicked out for adult swim. Turn back just enough time with today's Groupon: for $199, you get six sessions of GentleYAG skin-tightening treatments at Spa Balance in Patchogue (a $900 value).
At Spa Balance, staffers tighten sagging skin of all types on faces and bodies with the nonsurgical Candela GentleYAG laser system. Equipped with a patented cryogen cooling system for comfort skin without excluding cellulite-ridden snowmen, the technology tightens loose segments of the epidermis in six to eight evenly-spaced sessions, polishing wrinkled visages in two to four monthly appointments. During patrons’ initial 45–60 minute visits, staffers snap “before” shots to refer back to later to gauge progress; subsequent treatments last 30–45 minutes.
Though Spa Balance sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Inside Finest Fitness, the aestheticians at SpaFit tighten, tan, slim, and resurface skin with noninvasive treatments. They carry out hair-removal treatments with the Candela GentleYag laser, whose built-in cryogen system keeps skin cooler than a cucumber, and erase cellulite using VelaShape's radio frequencies. Therapeutic fragrances and soothing music accompany treatments as far-flung as hot-stone massages and teeth whitening.
