What You'll Get
The sun is capable of simultaneously enlivening and harming human faces, like a mother who only feeds her children pizza, chocolate, and compliments. Counteract the sun's faulty parenting with today's Groupon: for $999, you get a fractionated CO2 laser facelift at Suncoast Skin Solutions (a $2,500 value) in Lutz. The treatment lasts one to two hours and results are typically finalized in two to three months.
The fractionated CO2 laser facelift utilizes microscopic columns of CO2 laser energy to singe away the epidermis in an effort to resurface the face, its rejuvenating effects earning it WebMD's title of No. 1 Anti-Aging Breakthrough. The pillars of energy pepper the pores with microburns that prompt skin cells to release bursts of collagen, which can tighten skin and minimize unsightly wrinkles. This ablative procedure is also designed to buff bumpy mugs; diminish sunspots, scarring, and prolific freckles; and shatter unpleasant pigment while leaving surrounding skin and porcelain swans unharmed. The treatment typically requires 7–14 days of downtime, and although patients may experience some pain, they'll be well equipped to deal with wounds acquired during laser-tag tournaments.
