Although your body is a temple, covering yourself in bits of stained glass and swallowing thousands of candles has yet to be proven an effective beautification method. Shine up your shrine with today's Groupon: for $139, you get a skin-treatment package at Your Medicos, S.C. in Buffalo Grove (an $899 value). The package, which clients must use in a single visit, includes the following:
- One 30-minute photofacial
- One fractional laser facial session
The medically supervised staff at Your Medics, S.C. aims to reduce signs of aging and sun damage with a duo of cutting-edge facial treatments. Nimble techs first bathe pores in the broadband light of the photofacial to treat fine lines, spots, and fear of the dark. Gentle heat promotes collagen growth during the 30-minute procedure, plumping faces like a microwave does a marshmallow, all while redness flees to the insides of a teacher's pen. The photofacial can revive body regions other than the face if desired, but a series of treatments may be necessary for optimal erasure of the sun's damaging effects.
To enhance the youth-cultivating abilities of the photofacial, the 30-minute fractional laser facial session uses gentle pixels of laser energy to heat the face in precise pinpoints. The warmth stimulates collagen production and minimizes evidence of smoking, acne, and exfoliation with pineapple skins.
Although Your Medicos, S.C. often runs online specials, today's Groupon still offers the best deal available.
