To determine a tree's age you have to saw it in half, but that's not necessary with people, since most of them will just tell you before it comes to that. Keep your age a secret with this Groupon.

The Cortex laser treatment tightens skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles; it can also treat brown spots, acne scars, and other skin tone and texture issues. The laser's heat energy precisely penetrates the skin, which stimulates the creation of new collagen. Collagen plumps the skin and makes it look younger. Dr. Tarola consults with clients and gives instructions on how to care for the skin before and after the procedure.
Topical numbing cream or light oral sedation can be used to make clients more comfortable during each procedure. Afterward, they may experience some discomfort, although some clients may have a burning sensation that lasts up to two days. Following the treatment, a healing ointment is applied, and clients continue to apply this ointment after cleaning the skin several times a day.
The skin begins to peel a few days after the resurfacing treatment, and this may last for up to 10 days. Many clients return to their normal activities a week later. While the skin may be pink or red for up to six months following, it can usually be covered with makeup; makeup can be worn 10–14 days after the procedure. Dr. Tarola recommends that clients avoid the sun and wear sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher.
