Your face is your personal billboard; if it falls into disrepair, teenagers will be tempted to spray paint it with mustaches. Stave off surly graffiterati with today’s Groupon: for $125, you get an IPL photo facial at Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center (up to a $299 value).
Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center's intense pulsed light (IPL) photo facials root out redness and sunspots from faces, necks, and chests. After an initial consultation to determine each epidermis' individual needs and nickname preferences, clients don protective goggles and recline on a white table in a private yellow-walled room. An airy sound fills the suite as a nurse practitioner or licensed laser technician waves a Palomar MaxG wand over the skin for approximately 20 minutes, releasing pulsed light that targets redness to destroy pigmentation, restrict capillaries, and evict lurking swedish fish. Each pulse feels like a small hot pinch, which is immediately followed by a soothing cooling sensation to maximize comfort and prevent burning and scarring.
Depending on their skin, patients will need between one and five IPL photo-facial treatments to see a more uniform tone on faces, necks, and chests (a $275–$299). Sunspots can quickly darken and ultimately flake off, and skin may temporarily appear pink following each treatment. Special after-care instructions, such as avoiding the sun and keeping skin moisturized, will help keep visages healthy and maintain results. New clients depart from their treatment with a goodie bag containing a sample product, gourmet chocolate, and keys to a monogrammed DeLorean, and Groupon customers who schedule subsequent treatments (excluding injectables) within 30 days of their first appointment will receive a 25% discount.
Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center
When Aneta Filardo first got involved with laser hair removal, she was just a client. Impressed with the results, she became a Certified Medical Electrologist herself and, eventually, opened Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center. In the decade since it was founded, she's joined forces with other medical and cosmetic professionals including a board-certified plastic surgeon, physician assistants, and medical aestheticians who use the latest advancements in medspa technology to address a wide range of skincare issues.
Today, staff wield Palomar and NaturaLase QS cosmetic laser systems to foil follicles, even out skin tone, and erase tattoos. Body-contouring technology uses focused radio frequencies to disperse fat deposits by playing their least favorite music. To complement the high-tech treatments, aestheticians can recommend skincare regimens that use medical-grade products, including the medspa's private-label line.
