Human faces experience a lifetime of wear and tear from gravity, driving into the wind, and pineapple-pie-eating contests. Today's Groupon lets you restore your cheeks' original splendor: for $39, you get the choice of either a microdermabrasion, organic facial, or chemical peel (up to an $85 value) at The Garden Spa on LBJ Freeway.
The Garden Spa provides therapeutic skin services direct from the hands of skilled aestheticians. Microdermabrasion (a $60 value) is a noninvasive treatment that rejuvenates skin through exfoliating the top layer of dead skin cells like a snake shedding last year’s tired fashions. The treatment reduces signs of aging, scars, acne, sun damage, and son damage incurred at soccer practice. Alternately, go for a full-frontal face dive into a pool of skin renewal with a medical-grade Retin-A peel (an $80 value). This chemical peel is the quickest way to blast off acne, shine the light on dark spots, sprinkle moonbeams on sun damage, and infuse your face with the radiance of a fiber-optic sports drink. The final frontier of facial options is the Zen facial (an $85 value), a 50-minute treatment that pampers skin with organic skincare products until a hydrated, healthy frontispiece is revealed. While facing the facial, your neck, décolleté, and hands will be massaged as a relaxing, buttery bonus.
With the holiday season, boxing day, and Hanson's reunion tour right around the corner’s corner, any one of these tranquil services makes a simple, effective gift. If altruism doesn’t tickle your fancy flaps, buy up to six Groupons and spoil yourself over and over and over and over.
More than 30 Citysearchers give The Garden Spa an average of five stars.
