Before modern skincare, the only way to turn back the clock was to force your portrait to age instead of you or to turn a key in the hollow at the base of your skull. Reverse aging less invasively with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a microdermabrasion (a $110 value) and a facial (a $50 value) at Werschler Aesthetics (a $160 total value).
Dr. William Philip Werschler and the experienced staff at Werschler Aesthetics wrestle the logos of aging into quiet acquiescence with a slew of rejuvenating services. The 75-minute session begins with a diamond-tip microdermabrasion, which sends in a cavalry of crystals to lasso dead and dry skin cells, buffing away the face’s top layer and protective plastic laminate to display the most polished feature-easel. The treatment subjugates skin damage such as acne scars and fine lines, exfoliates pores, and increases circulation, leading to rapid proficiency in blush-based Morse code. Next, the skin-wizards at Werschler Aesthetics personalize cleansing facials depending on individual skin types and troubles. Dehydrated frontispieces receive an all-over quenching and detoxification, as well as the attention of pharmaceutical-grade products such as Epicuren, iS Clinical, SkinMedica, Obagi, Jane Iredale, Benev, and DermAvance.
Guided by Dr. William Philip Werschler, whose aesthetic expertise earned him a spot as judge for Prevention magazine's 2010 Defy-Your-Age Beauty Awards, the staff at Werschler Aesthetics overhauls outer appearances with advanced med-spa treatments. The Clarisonic skin-cleansing system jump-starts each specialty facial with sonic frequencies that, though inaudible to human ears, work to remove deeply embedded oil and dirt, priming skin to absorb pharmaceutical-grade serums from brands such as iS Clinical and SkinMedica. Techs also wield lasers specialized to tackle different maladies, from spider veins to acne, and they work to smooth faces with injectables such as Botox.
