Being beautiful is hard work, which is why, when viewed up close, most supermodels resemble elderly oil-rig workers. Get beautiful the easy way with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a SilkPeel facial at Spa La La in Bucktown (a $150 value).
A SilkPeel treatment at Spa La La repairs faces and lips ravaged by wintry weather as the spacious, light-filled environment calms brains ravaged by auto-tuned traffic reporters. Similar to traditional microdermabrasion, the SilkPeel exfoliates the skin’s surface while simultaneously infusing the face with skin-repairing solutions that are chosen based on each client’s particular needs.
First, a medical-grade facial cleanser removes dirt from the vexed visage before rose-water-infused warm towels wash away any lingering residue. Depending on skin type, the technician then chooses the appropriate-size diamond tip that will best target acne, dryness, sun damage, discoloration, or cemented-on Halloween masks, exfoliating away troubles and leaving the skin hydrated and feeling fresh (the SilkPeel can even be administered to chapped lips).
Once it's been purged and peeled, the face is soothes by a calming seaweed mask. A hand massage then renews appendages exhausted by years of rotary-phone abuse. An SPF 30 moisturizer and a light facial massage finish the facial refinishing, sealing in natural oils and eternal epidermal youth.
Spa La La's spirit of pampering extends to the spa’s lush décor, with plush chairs and an elegant marble-floored lobby awaiting to greet customers the moment they arrive. The comfortable confines and attentive aestheticians will make customers think twice about returning to their old habits of accepting at-home spa services applied by an over-stepping electrician or the neighbor’s “self-employed” adult son.

- The esthetician was very thorough with her evaluation of my skin type before starting, and as she applied all products to my face she told me what she was applying and how it would help my skin. Love this new Spa! Definitely will be back! – Krazyinthecity, Citysearch
