Like sweeping the front stoop before company arrives, a thorough facial sends a clear, friendly welcome to the banana cream pies flying toward your head. Keep your noggin ready for company with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a TCA facial peel plus an eye-rescue treatment at True Skin Care Center (a $260 value), located in Water Tower Place. The skilled skin-squad at True Skin Care Center alleviates dermatological distress through the power of medical training and state-of-the-art facilities. Following a thorough consultation that addresses any underlying skin issues, a TCA peel floods face-flesh with gentle trichloroacetic acid, washing away dead skin cells and leaving behind a clean, refreshed dermal surface. The process stimulates shiftless collagen proteins to help smooth out fine lines and other signs of aging, and new-cell growth contributes a healthy glow even when not dining in a torch-lit underpass. The added-on eye-rescue treatment firms and tones the eye area using freeze-dried collagen, which can diminish lines and puffiness and revivifies faces and their owners before releasing them back into the wild.
Though True Skin Care Center sometimes offers monthly specials, this Groupon is still the better deal.
True Skin Care Center
Housed inside the offices of a renowned facial plastic surgeon, the aestheticians at True Skin Care Center were hand-selected to form an elite team, whose access to results-driven skincare tools, methods, and products upgrades clients' spa visits into transformative experiences. All of the staff members have undergone rigorous academic training and held careers in high-end spas, yet their resumés impress with different feats—Daniela specializes in precision lasering. Joanie draws from past jobs as a model and makeup artist to augment her procedures, Gigi and Jennifer boasts an expertise in exfoliating services.
The team administers a broad range of treatments, from chemical peels to firming ultrasound sessions. To prep for a special event, clients can recline for an Intraceuticals oxygen facial, whose black-cherry-scented formula helps polish complexions to a firm and healthy glow. Laser hair removal helps clients achieve smooth skin, and microdermabrasion buffs away dead cells to reveal brighter complexions and previously undiscovered dimples. Other offerings include waxing, makeup applications and comprehensive bridal packages. Regardless of its type, however, each appointment begins with a thorough client consultation, which identifies both current and past concerns before devising a new skincare regimen.
