Human skin, like a pair of earmuffs, provides a layer of protection from the harsher elements and embellishes an otherwise drab outfit. Polish your pelt with today's Groupon: for $149, you get an IPL photo-rejuvenation treatment at Visage Skincare Spa and Cosmetic Laser Center in Farmingville (a $325 value).
Within the tranquil walls of Visage's Farmingville facility, a sure-handed stable of licensed technicians performs a wide variety of dermatological and aesthetic skincare services. Often referred to as a photo facial, the noninvasive IPL photo-rejuvenation treatment harnesses the power of intense pulsed light to treat common epidermal ailments such as rosacea, sun damage, fine lines, under-eye circles, and the results of permanent-marker duels. After applying a cloak of cool gel, technicians deliver heated pulses of light into epidermal arenas to politely but sternly ask blood vessels and lesions to return to the fourth dimension. The light weakens abnormally enlarged vessels and triggers a battalion of the body's healing agents, revitalizing cells and leaving skin with a glow paralleled only by that of a pregnant firefly. Clients may experience mild rosiness post-treatment, but this generally fades.
