Skin, like a convertible or a brownie encased in steel, looks better after its outermost layer is shed. Unfurl your face with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a deep-pore cleansing facial and mask (a $160 value), oxygen treatment (a $165 value), and a microdermabrasion (a $55 value) at The Esthetics Resource (a $380 total value).
Vicky Gomez helms The Esthetics Resource, providing patrons with beauty-boosting treatments that she tries herself before approving them for her spa. Before the 1–1.5-hour skin-saving session commences, an experienced aesthetician cleanses the face and customizes the subsequent deep-cleansing facial to each individual's needs, using a bright magnifying lamp to analyze problem areas and identify minute crop circles. A targeted exfoliation, extraction, and mask follow to prep skin for the diamond-crystal microdermabrasion, which scours away dead skin cells to reveal the luminescent layers beneath. A revitalizing oxygen treatment delivers concentrated oxygen through an airbrush and finishes faces with a moisturizing silk-protein cream. The newly fresh-faced can then luxuriate under a preformed gold mask, which may help to fortify collagen deposits, smooth wrinkles, and persuade passersby of your material worth.
The Esthetics Resource
The Esthetics Resource founder, Vicky Gomez, wants to help people uncover their most beautiful selves with a menu of skin, massage, and body-slimming services. Vicky's team of trained and licensed aestheticians uses fat-busting devices such as the Dermosonic cellulite machine and the SlimLine Pod, both of which have been featured on The Doctors for their silhouette-slimming powers. Massage therapists jump start the body's detoxification process and lymphatic drainage with artful kneading, and facial treatments target skin problems such as acne, fine lines, age spots, and stains from childhood Kool-Aid mustaches.
