Like an acrylic bathtub, improperly maintained skin can wind up dull, cracked, and littered with derelict rubber duckies. Tend to your face basin with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get eight photodynamic acne-therapy sessions at Westside Laser & Light (a $320 value).
Westside's certified medical practitioners treat mild to severe acne using gentle, heat-free, noninvasive photodynamic therapy. The red and blue beams of Westside's Omnilux LED therapy target bacteria and inflammation in a 20-minute treatment and a spirited rhythmic gymnastics routine designed to leave behind smoother, clearer skin. Blue wavelengths stimulate the chemicals produced by acne bacteria, helping neutralize the unwelcome micro-organisms, thus diminishing inflammation and blemishes. This lets the oil-producing sebaceous gland resume normal functioning, inhibiting future breakouts. When exposed to a red glow, meanwhile, epidermal cells begin to repair damaged tissues, healing lesions and restoring skin's smoothness while rekindling its passion for klezmer music.
Over the course of four weeks, eight treatments of red-and-blue combination therapy can eliminate up to 80 per cent of blemishes. Westside's epidermis experts administer their nonsurgical treatments with an eye toward protecting delicate outer coverings from irritants, such as harmful chemicals or dinnertime telemarketing calls.
