Though some claim the brain is our most attractive feature, people tend to feel uncomfortable when staring deeply into it. Celebrate skin-deep beauty instead with today's Groupon: for $139, you get two IPL photofacials or two ReFirme skin-tightening treatments at The Best You, Centre for Personal Enhancement in Collingwood (up to a $700 value).
Helmed by physician Dr. Deniz Akyurekli, the beauty bolsterers at The Best You, Centre for Personal Enhancement educate clients before beginning each nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. Skin specialists harness intense pulsed light therapy during the IPL photofacial, targeting age spots, freckles, and red spider veins in sessions that typically take less than an hour. The light energy absorbs into select pigments, heating dermal aberrations and convincing them that reality is an illusion. Patients may experience a slight stinging sensation akin to kissing a cactus, which therapists minimize by applying a freezing gel. Skin may also appear pink and slightly puffy for up to a few hours. Some clients achieve a desired look in one session, and others may require several appointments spaced every three weeks before obtaining optimal results.
Typically done on the face but also applicable to problem spots including the neck, chest, arms, and shins, the ReFirme skin-tightening treatment tightens skin through a combination of bi-polar radio frequency and light energies. By warming underlying tissues and stimulating collagen production, ReFirme may diminish wrinkles, improve elasticity, and steam out deeply embedded buffalo sauce. Therapists furnish clients with before and after photos to document progress—the recommended number of treatments varies by patient.
Buyers also receive a complimentary Visia skin complexion analysis and facial. Harnessing multi-spectral imaging, the Visia skin complexion analysis generates a computer visual of the face that maps measurables such as pore distribution, photo damage, and wrinkles, and number of pinches ever received by aunts. The Visia analysis then empowers therapists to tailor a facial that addresses the bearer's skin conditions.
