Humans have long manipulated light to improve appearances, from cavemen who lit their homes with flattering torches, to a radiant marquee advertising a production of Hamlet performed entirely in pirate dialect. Enlist the attractive powers of light with today’s Groupon for photofacials at SpaDerma, which are appropriate for fair to medium complexions. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get one IPL photofacial treatment (up to a $350 value).
- For $175, you get two IPL photofacial treatments (up to a $700 value).
SpaDerma’s on-site medical director trains nurses and aestheticians in the art of exorcising blemishes. IPL photofacial wands scatter slivers of intense pulsed light across faces in noninvasive treatments lasting 30–45 minutes. Broad beams hunt down red or brown imperfections, including sunspots, shattered capillaries, and smears of melted chocolate, safely pulverizing pigments so that the body can naturally absorb and purge them. Patrons may experience a brief snapping sensation while freckles and rosacea flee from incandescent pillars, which can leave cheeks uncharacteristically rosy for up to 48 hours. Epidermal professionals recommend three–six treatments for optimal results, and must turn away clients who are freshly sunburned, those who have recently taken antibiotics, and vampires.
Board-certified physician Dr. Michael Green, MD, and his team of licensed aesthetic professionals combine meticulous training and advanced equipment to fine-tune appearances. Specializing in nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, body beautifiers banish crow's-feet and pterodactyl claws with Botox injections or reduce unwanted bristles with laser hair-removal treatments. Ionithermie body-contouring treatments help to diminish the appearance of cellulite, and six types of chemical peels and custom facials vivify surfaces like a fleet of miniature zambonis.
