Faces, like khakis and the space-time continuum, look best when wrinkle-free. Iron out head creases with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a two-layer custom peel and choice of a hand or neck peel (up to a $450 value) or an IPL photofacial and choice of a hand or neck IPL treatment (up to a $500 value) at Vickmay Skin and Body Spa.
The time rewinders at Vickmay take a personalized approach to wrinkle shrinking and blemish banishing, customizing each treatment to their patients' needs. The wide range of chemical peels vary in penetration from relatively mild treatments that help solve superficial fine lines and acne scars to deeper-delving peels that root out the mischievous subdermal gnomes that cause more severe damage. A free consultation with a skin expert helps determine the best peel for your skin, with downtime dependent on the intensity of the treatment. After a double-layer cake of facial frosting, guests can order seconds for either their hands or neck.
Vickmay's photofacials use Cutera LimeLight lasers to improve texture, reduce age spots, and minimize signs of sun damage more subtly than full-body sunglasses. After one to three facials, patients may begin to see their new, clear self dawning, though the full effect may not be apparent until about three weeks later. IPL treatments are suitable for any part of the body, and Groupon buyers may choose between their hands or their neck for one more blast of healing light.
Vickmay Skin & Med Body Spa
In 2002, the Austin Chronicle named Vickmay Skin & Med Body Spa the "Best Place to Fight the Ravages of Time" on its annual "Best of Austin" list. Three years later, the paper was still singing the praises of Vickmay's "magical treatments." It's fitting that a spa known for seemingly stopping aging in its tracks maintains a record of unchanging client satisfaction.
That focus on excellence is demonstrated in all of Vickmay's treatments, which range from advanced anti-aging therapies to more traditional spa procedures. Botox injections relax frown lines, while the light-based technologies of Laser Genesis and Cutera systems address uneven complexions, tighten lax skin, or reduce hair growth. But the haven also stays true to its spa moniker, offering indulgent services such as aromatherapy massages and champagne facials.
