Faces are an integral part of the body's defense system, constantly deflecting UV rays, piercing glances, and microwaves jettisoned from passing garbage trucks. Renew your bravest body part with today's Groupon: for $99, you get two IPL photofacial treatments on the face or décolletage at Sunrise MedSpa in Studio City (a $700 value).
The skin savants of Sunrise MedSpa gently push back the hands of time and uproot the effects of sun damage, age spots, and acne with IPL photofacial treatments. Using a cool hand piece, a technician sends brief pulses of carefully calibrated light to break up discoloration mottling the face or décolletage. Patients may experience a brief pinching sensation, which, like the embarrassment of calling your fourth-grade teacher Mom, should fade quickly. The complexion-clearing sessions take only a few minutes and frequently produce a noticeable change within a few weeks, though Sunrise recommends a series of five treatments for the most dramatic results.
This deal is not recommended for Fitzpatrick skin type V and VI, and tanning and sun exposure are not recommended during treatment.
