Human faces experience a lifetime of wear and tear from gravity, driving into the wind, and pineapple-pie-eating contests. Today's Groupon to The Face Place in Altamonte Springs lets you restore your cheeks' original splendor. Choose between the following options:
• For $29, you get a microdermabrasion treatment (a $75 value).
• For $49, you get a microdermabrasion, signature facial, and a glass of wine (a $150 value).
The Face Place repairs and refreshes skin with individualized regimens and organic products. Each 45-minute microdermabrasion session begins with a facial cleanse to suit each skin type, such as a coconut milk cleanser for dry skin, before a swipe of toner balances faces' pH levels and removes any lingering makeup. Then a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand lassoes dead cells and herds them away, pausing to wrangle fine lines, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and tumbleweeds. A soothing mask helps to calm skin, which can appear pink or red for a few hours following the treatment, and a hearty layer of sunscreen keeps pores protected.
For extra pampering, opt to bolster your microdermabrasions with a vitamin-packed serum to revitalize and hydrate visages. Your choice of a 50-minute Signature facial attends to skin's most pressing health needs with such ingredients as the parsley-and-cucumber oxygenating facial, which encourages epidermises to release glow-inhibiting toxins. A complimentary glass of red or white wine accentuates the calming effects of each facial, which is performed in a private room with light turquoise walls, soft candlelight, a fountain, and an Enya cover band.
Origin Stories: The Keeper of the Pretty Purse
After years of performing skin care in a doctor's office, Julie Council realized her passion for pampering could not be contained in just one treatment room. So she opened The Face Place in 2007, which allows her to revel in her favorite part of the job--the visible results of microdermabrasions. An avid purse collector with more than 100 Technicolor handbags in her collection, Council is currently pursuing a PhD in psychology and shares her home with three children aged 9 to 16.
The Face Place
Licensed aesthetician and The Face Place owner Julie Lynn Council makes clients feel at home in her spa. In dimly-lit treatment rooms Julie, armed with an array of natural and organic beauty-care lines, including Hungarian-made Éminence Organic Skin Care products, nourishes any skin type with targeted products such as a coconut cleanser for dehydrated skin or strawberry-rhubarb serum for strawberry-shaped pores. To complement the spa’s traditional facials and peels, Julie performs more advanced procedures such as micro-current treatments and LED light therapy, a rejuvenating service that relies on the anti-aging powers of LED lights to banish wrinkles and hyperpigmentation from the skin. The Face Place’s petite menu also offers Cry Baby semipermanent mascara to thicken lash lines. Disclaimer: Phenix Salon Suites is not responsible for this ad.
