So you may be surprised to find that Goods actually has a lot of high-end products, from <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/goods/electronics\" target=\"_blank\">electronics</a> such as Apple MacBooks and quadcopter drones to <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/goods/womens-clothing-shoes-and-accessories\" target=\"_blank\">women's accessories</a> such as Hunter rainboots and Ray-Ban sunglasses, all offered at discounted prices. And its <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/goods/health-and-beauty\" target=\"_blank\">health and beauty</a> selection is no joke. Though the inventory frequently changes, it's not uncommon to see items that have achieved cult status in the beauty world&mdash;Kylie Lip Kits, for instance, which tend to sell out almost immediately. Here are some other great Groupon Goods beauty finds:</p>\n<h2>Prestige Cosmetics</h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2xjPLTP3xHD2YPjoVb5NDKW69mCH/Lipstick_Queen_Butterfly_Ball_Lipstick_in_Fly_Women_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p><em>As beauty addicts know, it's typically</em> <em>hard to nab high-end cosmetics at a discount, but it's possible with Groupon Goods. The products are often just a couple dollars cheaper, yet those savings add up and lead to an even bigger makeup collection.</em></p>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/browse/?query=lipstick%20queen\" target=\"_blank\"><strong>Lipstick Que</strong><strong>en lipsticks</strong></a>: Nobody sees lipstick quite like Lipstick Queen's creator, Poppy King, whose creations tend to look one way in the tube and completely different on the lips. Hello Sailor, for example, is a dark blue that turns to a pretty sheer mauve color when applied, and the Smokey Lip Kit includes a sheer black top coat that subtly darkens any lipstick color.</p>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/deals/gs-tom-ford-lip-color-sheer-lipstick-03-le-mepris-1-oz-3-g\" target=\"_blank\"><strong>Tom Ford lip color in Le Mepris</strong></a>: Beauty editors obsess over Tom Ford lipsticks for their velvety feel and gorgeous Art Deco&ndash;style packaging.

As such, it's more common for international makeup artists to use it. Britain's Lisa Eldridge, Lancome's creative director, often uses the brand in her makeup tutorials, including Bourjois's <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/deals/gg-bourjois-volume-glamour\" target=\"_blank\"><strong>Volume Glamour mascaras</strong></a>.</p>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/k5m8ANaozd58ePm2jXgk5gx2HUo/600x66_shopbanner_OUT-TO-WOW-goods_lw_jpg-600x66\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></p>\n<h2>Elite Skincare</h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/41wxmUhFEhDjihTMLzFbxviXK4ar/Peter_Thomas_Roth_24K_Gold_Mask_Pure_Luxury_Lift_Firm_Mask_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p><em>Some people spend their whole lives trying to figure out how to keep their skin clear, calm, and quenched.

That such a place exists is not surprising. What is surprising is that anyone can go there, even if they don't have the name, the money, or the pocketful of pizza typically required to bribe their way in. But the most astonishing thing about this place is that you can find it on Groupon.</p>\n<p>People looking for a Groupon <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/spa\" target=\"_blank\">spa or wellness treatment</a> are often surprised to find such renowned merchants on the site. Yet they shouldn't be. Groupon partners with many top merchants around the country, from salons with celebrity stylists to spas located inside some of the nation's nicest hotels. Let us introduce you to a few of the best Groupon beauty and Groupon spa deals in your city.</p>\n<h2><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/new-york-city/beauty-and-spas\" target=\"_blank\">New York</a></h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2qrsFEwEHNtFHUgfPcbJq62iHixu/Midoma_hair_salon_gallery_and_boutique_in_New_York_City_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/new-york-city/midoma-salon-gallery\" target=\"_blank\">Midoma</a>: Midtown</h3>\n<p>This highly creative space, with vibrant works of art backdropped by clean white walls and mannequins draped in dresses, is part hair salon, part gallery, and part boutique. Here, stylists from all around the world give dramatic cuts and soft balayage color to a wide range of New Yorkers, including Broadway stars and models in editorial shoots. Midoma also frequently hosts exhibitions for renowned artists.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/new-york-city/russian-turkish-baths\" target=\"_blank\">Russian and Turkish Baths</a>: East Village</h3>\n<p>If you come here to get pampered, you might be disappointed. If you come here for a good shvitz and a brisk thrashing with oak leaves sopped in olive oil soap, you'll be thrilled. Most people come to the tenement-basement baths precisely for its no frills Old World atmosphere. In fact, since 1892, the traditional bathhouse has been attracting everyone from gangsters to celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and John Belushi.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/manhattan/the-sisley-paris-spa\" target=\"_blank\">Sisley-Paris Spa in the Carlyle Hotel</a>: Upper East Side</h3>\n<p>The glamorous Sisley-Paris Spa may be the polar opposite of the bathhouse, lavishing patrons with indulgent spa services in an opulent space tucked away in the Art Deco&ndash;style Carlyle Hotel. Each spa service begins with a lavender oil aromatherapy treatment and incorporates luxe French skincare products. And when you leave the intimate, chandelier&ndash;bedecked space, there's a small chance you'll see someone famous, as the Carlyle has catered to celebrities and royalty since opening in the 1930s.</p>\n<h2><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/chicago/beauty-and-spas\" target=\"_blank\">Chicago</a></h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3L3PMsVKgVie44s4zS8ZQF1aeC4R/Crystals_at_Ruby_Room_in_Chicago_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/chicago/ruby-room\" target=\"_blank\">Ruby Room</a>: Wicker Park</h3>\n<p>Ruby Room has gotten plenty of attention for its unconventional treatments: chakra and crystal energy healings, numerology sessions, and aura readings. (It even has infrared biomat sessions, which have reportedly been used by NASA to help with chronic pain, and involve lying on an infrared bed lined with crystals.) However, the brownstone spa has more traditional offerings, too, including hair-color services to create trendy bronde and blorange shades.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/chicago/bliss-spa-at-w-chicago\" target=\"_blank\">Bliss Spa</a>: Near North Side</h3>\n<p>Yes, Bliss has some great services, including oxygen facials and love-handle treatments utilizing Bliss's famed Fatgirlslim cream, but what Chicagoans really rave about are the amenities. These include nail stations with movie screens, a scented steam room, and a relaxation room that overlooks Lake Michigan and Navy Pier. And of course there's the legendary brownie buffet.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/chicago/salon-3\" target=\"_blank\">Salon 1800</a>: Lincoln Park</h3>\n<p>Everyone from chic Lincoln Park ladies to local TV personalities head to Salon 1800 whenever they need a new 'do, which is unsurprising given the number of on-trend looks that come out of the salon. Its stylists specialize in&nbsp;both subtle balayage and bold colors, transforming brown locks into bronde ones with strategically placed blond highlights, and creating vibrant rainbow hair. One look at the salon's Instagram also makes it clear that they have mastered waves and braids.</p>\n<h2><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/los-angeles/beauty-and-spas\" target=\"_blank\">Los Angeles</a></h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3MAaGsfCHGV9kYZZtJvzGJvNSnvS/aqua-star-babor-beauty-spa-at-the-beverly-hilton_Los_Angeles_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/beverly-hills-ca/aqua-star-spa\" target=\"_blank\">Aqua Star Babor Beauty Spa at The Beverly Hilton</a>: Beverly Hills</h3>\n<p>When you look at the history of The Beverly Hilton, you realize that its spa's aestheticians probably know what they're talking about when it comes to the Red Carpet Ready facial. That's because the hotel hosts more than 150 red carpet events each year, including the Golden Globes, star-studded charity galas, and Clive Davis's legendary pre-Grammy party. During the 80-minute glow-inducing Red Carpet facial, they utilize products from Babor, the famed German skincare company that blends science and nature in its formulations. Aqua Star is the only Babor spa in America.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/los-angeles/zakhor-dental-group\" target=\"_blank\">Zakhor Dental Group</a>: Westwood/UCLA</h3>\n<p>This is the office of Dr. Mansour Zakhor, the aforementioned dentist to the stars. They and his other patients trust him to make over their smiles, whether that means using thin porcelain veneers to cover stains and chips or using Zoom! whitening treatments to brighten teeth up to eight shades. He treats other oral problems, too, including recommending&nbsp;special dental appliances to help patients stop snoring.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/pasadena-ca/bokaos\" target=\"_blank\">Bokaos Pasadena, an Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa</a>: Pasadena</h3>\n<p>Bokaos's owner, celebrity stylist Hasblady Guzman, has worked on stars such as Gerard Butler and Ana Ortiz from <em>Ugly Betty,</em> and has helped entertainment reporters get glamorous for the Oscars. Hasblady, who contributed to our <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/lookbook\">spring beauty lookbook</a>, has been featured by <em>OK!</em> and <em>Teen Vogue</em>, as well. At her salon, she and her Aveda-, Vidal Sassoon&ndash;, and Toni &amp; Guy&ndash;trained staffers buzz designs into <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/7-common-haircuts-for-women\" target=\"_blank\">undercuts</a>, attach extensions, and apply American Wave foam curlers to create soft waves, famed stylist Nick Arrojo's modern-day version of a perm.</p>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/beauty-and-spas\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/ViZRPMJ7Njo6rFw1cYbXdsXoHM4/600x66_shopbanner_OUT-TO-WOW_lw_jpg-600x66\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></a></p>\n<h2><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/phoenix/beauty-and-spas\" target=\"_blank\">Phoenix</a></h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2fE5tJR3ehm1buF6mkixhgUQfnr6/Pool_at_Alvadora_Spa_at_Royal_Palms_in_Phoenix_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/phoenix/alvadora-spa-at-royal-palms-resort-and-spa\" target=\"_blank\">Alvadora Spa at Royal Palms Resort and Spa</a>: Camelback Mountain base</h3>\n<p>This Phoenix hotel has attracted many important people over the years, including President George W. Bush, because of its luxurious amenities. Perhaps the most impressive of these is the Alvadora Spa, which has Mediterranean treatment rooms that spill into private courtyards, plus crackling fireplaces and impressive 8-foot outdoor waterfall showers. One of the more unique treatments is an in-water massage in the heated Watsu pool, during which the therapist rocks, cradles, and stretches guests.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/phoenix/r-salon\" target=\"_blank\">R Salon</a>: Biltmore</h3>\n<p>With its electric blue furniture and lime-green walls&mdash;not to mention the assymetrical, cheetah-spot hairdos exiting from its doors&mdash;R Salon feels like an edgy New York salon. It's so popular that it has expanded from 4 stylists to more than 50, who also execute more classic haircuts and subtle color. These stylists have been educated all over the country and also internationally&mdash;one even trained in France and another has worked with celebrities such as Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie in Beverly Hills.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/phoenix/senza-pelo-med-spa\" target=\"_blank\">Senza Pelo Med Spa</a>: Christown</h3>\n<p>Senza is known as the place to go for electrolysis, not just in Arizona, but across the country. Thank owner Maria DeNicola, who has been zapping away unwanted facial and body hair since the 1980s. Maria is an ally of the trans community, and in 2016, the Human Rights Campaign awarded her its Independent Equality Award for her efforts helping her transgender clients transition, both by performing electrolysis and by offering emotional support. With the help of her med spa team, which includes three nurses, DeNicola also treats faces with microdermabrasion, lasers, and high-end products from La Maison Clayton Shagal and PCA Skin.</p>\n<h2><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/washington-dc/beauty-and-spas\" target=\"_blank\">Washington DC</a></h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3oP7b6oC5XcBjgsDVcJS6LcvKXDe/Alli_Webb_founder_of_Dry_Bar_styling_clients_hair_in_DC_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/washington-dc/drybar-georgetown\" target=\"_blank\">Drybar</a>: Multiple Locations</h3>\n<p>Drybar, which has been featured extensively in the media, was the first blow-dry bar in the country. At each Drybar location, customers sit around a sleek center bar as stylists blow-dry, straighten, and curl their hair, prepping them for special events with cocktail-themed blowouts. While stylists create a Mai Tai (messy beachy waves) or Manhattan (sleek and smooth), guests sip wine or tea, recharge their phones at their chair's USB port, and watch classic chick flicks.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/washington-dc/salon-roi\" target=\"_blank\">Salon Roi</a>: Woodley Park</h3>\n<p>Though she was never there, Salon Roi attracts droves of Marilyn Monroe fans, including fans aboard the Old Towne Trolley, which makes a stop at the salon. The reason for all the fuss? The salon's well-known mural of Marilyn Monroe, an iconic image that decorates the upper levels of the four-story historic townhouse. This unexpected Washington landmark has been reproduced on postcards, T-shirts, and calendars. But the area's first unisex salon is known for more than just its homage to the blonde bombshell; it also draws in people looking for trendy cuts and color, who love the a cozy atmosphere complete with a fireplace and cups of hot tea or Starbucks coffee.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/mays-chapel-md/promd-health\" target=\"_blank\">ProMD Health</a>: DC and Timonium, MD</h3>\n<p>Dr. George Gavrila helms this med spa, where he performs everything from cosmetic injections to Y Lift face-lifts. He was one of the first doctors in the country to perform this 30-minute face-lift, and he's constantly utilizing new cutting-edge treatments at ProMD. This might mean injecting the dermal filler Sculptra into butts to lift them, instead of relying on more invasive surgical fat transfers. Or, replacing sharp needles with blunt-tip instruments to perform facial injections. He has taught many of his techniques to other doctors around the country.</p>\n<h2><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/san-francisco/beauty-and-spas\" target=\"_blank\">San Francisco</a></h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/4FAa6dgVv7WnTbxGWrsoqBjDJvda/woman_receiving_facial_at_Spa_at_the_InterContinental_San_Francisco_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/san-francisco/the-spa-at-intercontinental-san-francisco\" target=\"_blank\">The I Spa at the InterContinental Hotel</a>: SoMa</h3>\n<p>The I Spa is all about customization, from the essential oils bar where guests create their own aromatherapeutic blend to use in their massage, to the treatment rooms wired for personal iPod access. Before and after their spa services, guests can relax in the eucalyptus-infused steam room, Jacuzzi, and Swiss showers. Or, they can swim laps in the indoor saltwater lap pool before soaking in the sunshine on the outdoor terrace.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/san-francisco/zazen\" target=\"_blank\">Zazen</a>: Cow Hollow</h3>\n<p>Peaceful. That word best sums up this calming retreat, where visitors flow through yoga poses near a fireplace or zone out in the float chambers, practically becoming one with the warm, salty water. A reporter from the <em>San Francisco Chronicle</em> tried one of these float chambers and said, \"All in all, the experience was meditative ... and very relaxing.\" Zazen seeks to improve well-being with massages and acupuncture too.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/san-francisco/michael-robert-haircutters\" target=\"_blank\">Andromeda Quan</a>: Castro</h3>\n<p>Andromeda may not be as well known as other San Francisco stylists, but that's sure to change soon. Her customers all seem to adore her work, which has been featured in <em>Bob Cut</em> magazine, and Andromeda can execute everything from balayage-highlighted long waves to lotus-flower undercuts. Where she really excels, however, is braids, and can twist up anything from soft dutch crown braids to perfectly pancaked pigtails.</p>\n<h2><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/dallas/beauty-and-spas\" target=\"_blank\">Dallas</a></h2>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/dallas/pouf-blowout-and-beauty\" target=\"_blank\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2cWNtYYWjnzvnjNDnRYHZWdsNWBP/stylist_curling_hair_at_Pouf_Blowout_and_Threading_Studio_in_Dallas_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></a></h3>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/dallas/pouf-blowout-and-beauty\" target=\"_blank\">Pouf Blowout and Threading Studio</a>: Upper Greenville</h3>\n<p>Inside this chic beauty space, chandeliers that look like dandelion puffs illuminate stylists as they curl strands and twist locks into edgy mohawk braids and fairytale fishtales. Nearby, brow experts quickly thread away unwanted hairs and shape arches. Pouf is owned by Sunita Muppagovini, who was deemed an eyebrow expert by NBC 5 after they featured her for her threading services and 3D eyebrow sculpting technique.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/dallas/mapleshade-spa\" target=\"_blank\">Mapleshade Spa</a>: North Dallas</h3>\n<p>Before it was a spa, Mapleshade was a home. The spas owners transformed the sprawling yellow house, first built in 1963, into a charming spa retreat complete with a huge wraparound porch and garden fountains set among aromatic thickets of rosemary, thyme, mint, lavender, and roses. On nice days, treatments can take place outside. Otherwise, facials utilizing botanical skincare products from Pevonia and &Eacute;minence Organic are performed inside by a warm fire, while mani-pedis unfold in either the lively nail loft or a private treatment room.</p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/dallas/westlake-laser-and-medical-spa\" target=\"_blank\">Laser Beauty Medical Spa</a>: North Dallas</h3>\n<p>The top-rated Laser Beauty Medical Spa, which works with the Dallas Mavericks dancers, is helmed by Dr. Naveen Setty, a plastic surgeon who was named one of <em>D Magazine</em>'s top doctors in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. The Ivy League grad works alongside various laser technicians and medical aestheticians, as well as a nurse injector who has been working in aesthetic medicine for nearly 20 years and medicine in general for nearly 40 years. Together, they perform laser hair removal, fractional laser skin resurfacing, and cosmetic injections.</p>\n<h4>Beauty lovers&nbsp;can also find makeup, skincare, and hair products from some of the <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/groupon-goods-beauty-showcase\">top beauty brands</a> on Groupon Goods.&nbsp;</h4>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/occasion/out-to-wow-beauty\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/UMzWGycRTnaTwRCRRaxkAHnjih8/600x66_shopbanner_OUT-TO-WOW_lw__1__jpg-600x66\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></a></p>","created_on":"2017-03-08T17:59:24.567Z","last_modified_on":"2017-04-07T18:22:23.842Z","last_modified_by":"","location":null,"author_name":"Groupon Editors","author":"df385855-6978-440d-b5a2-7d14dc0f0515","locale":"en_US","seo_title":"The Best Groupon Spa Deals Across the Country ","meta_description":"You may be surprised to learn that some of the country's best doctors and beauty experts run Groupon spa deals.

And if you&rsquo;ve fallen down an Internet hole researching ways to do this, you may have discovered that </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/injectables-and-fillers\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">dermal fillers</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> can actually temporarily correct these signs of aging. One such </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">facial filler</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> is </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">. </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We spoke with Dr. Kathryn J. Russell, a dermatologist and Mohs surgeon at the </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/naples-fl/woodruff-institute\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Woodruff Institute</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> in southwestern Florida, to gain an expert&rsquo;s insight into what </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> is, how it&rsquo;s different from other </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">wrinkle fillers</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, and why we&rsquo;re even showing those signs of aging in the first place.</span></p>\n<h2>Why do we show signs of aging?</h2>\n<h3><strong>And why are all these signs named after punctuation marks and puppets?</strong></h3>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We&rsquo;re all more or less familiar with the signs of aging, along with some of their more inventive names: the tiny lines that branch out from the corners of the eyes that we call </span><strong>crow&rsquo;s-feet</strong><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">; the creases that form from the nose to the corners of the mouth, dubbed </span><strong>parentheses lines</strong><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">; and the ones that stretch from the corners of the mouth to the chin, commonly called </span><strong>marionette lines</strong><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">.</span></p>\n<p>But why do we get them?</p>\n<p><strong><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">&ldquo;As we age, we lose bone and subcutaneous fat in the structure of our face in addition to collagen and elastin in the skin. This causes our skin to sag and form wrinkles as gravity takes its toll,&rdquo; Dr. Russell explains. &ldquo;The way people age is a result of genetics, sun, smoking, certain medications, as well as other lifestyle choices.&rdquo;</span></strong></p>\n<h2>What is Juv&eacute;derm, and how does it correct these signs of aging?</h2>\n<h3><strong>Hint: It&rsquo;s a filler that plumps and volumizes.</strong></h3>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2u8YiSwCEP3jXj6eTZY3LWGXNmVg/middle_aged_female_with_smooth_skin-1_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So how does </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> address the fact that our skin loses more and more of its support structure as we age? &ldquo;</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> is a non-animal, cross-linked, hyaluronic-acid-based filler that works by restoring volume to the face,&rdquo; Dr. Russell says. &ldquo;It literally is used to fill [the face&rsquo;s] folds and creases.&rdquo;</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">It&rsquo;s important to note that <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/what-is-hyaluronic-acid\">hyaluronic acid</a> is a naturally occurring substance in the body, adding lubrication to joints and a cushion-like effect to the skin and tissues. By replicating this natural fluid and being injected into the skin, </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> temporarily restores the skin's support structure to smooth out wrinkles. Importantly, Dr. Russell says, &ldquo;it works best to treat the wrinkles and lines of the &lsquo;resting face.&rsquo;&rdquo;</span></p>\n<h2>How is Juv&eacute;derm different from other injectables?</h2>\n<h3><strong>Different injectables treat different signs of aging.</strong></h3>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">The idea of the face at rest is an important distinction in the world of wrinkle reduction. Some lines and creases are noticeable when we&rsquo;re simply sitting still, perhaps reading a book or watching TV. Others become apparent when the face is in motion&mdash;when we&rsquo;re talking and laughing.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">This distinction has given rise to two types of injectables:</span></p>\n<ol>\n<li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><strong>Dermal fillers</strong><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">,</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> like </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span></li>\n<li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><strong>Neuromodulators</strong>, such as <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/botox\">Botox and Dysport</a></li>\n</ol>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">&ldquo;Neuromodulators are used to relax muscles that cause wrinkles with movement,&rdquo; Dr. Russell says. &ldquo;Fillers are used to restore volume and correct wrinkles at rest.&rdquo; She adds that neuromodulators typically last four to six months, whereas fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years.</span></p>\n<h2>How do you know if Juv&eacute;derm is right for you?</h2>\n<h3><strong>You don&rsquo;t have to be in your 50s&mdash;or even in your 30s&mdash;to get Juv&eacute;derm.</strong></h3>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2PckvqUdB8UBMG8Ur6XWyhW1ApaK/image_of_middle_age_female_pointing_out_juvaderm_treatment_areas_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Considering the difference between </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">facial fillers</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> and neuromodulators, if your only concern is fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes&mdash;&rdquo;wrinkles with movement,&rdquo; as Dr. Russell calls them&mdash;Botox or Dysport might be more suitable for you than </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">. On the other hand, she says, it&rsquo;s easier to correct mild to moderate wrinkles with fillers. &ldquo;If someone has severe wrinkles and skin sagging, they would likely benefit from a surgical procedure such as a </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/facelift\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">face-lift</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">.&rdquo;</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Beyond that, the ideal candidate for </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> injections can vary widely. &ldquo;[</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Dermal fillers</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">] are used in a variety of areas for a variety of ages&mdash;the lips, cheeks, lines from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds), lines from the mouth to the chin (melomental folds), hands, temples, tear troughs, etc.,&rdquo; Dr. Russell says.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">&ldquo;Someone in their 20s may benefit from a little filler to volumize the lip, whereas someone in their 40s or 50s may benefit from filler to the cheek.&rdquo;</span></p>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/injectables-and-fillers\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3i8tCtfKYDX3zgJfiyBofH93cc2u/shop_banner-juvaderm_jpg-600x66\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></span></a></p>\n<h2>There are several types of Juv&eacute;derm&mdash;how are they different?</h2>\n<h3><strong>Rest easy; your provider will decide which one is best for you.</strong></h3>\n<table style=\"border-collapse: collapse;\" border=\"0\" cellspacing=\"0\" cellpadding=\"0\">\n<tbody>\n<tr>\n<th style=\"text-align: center; background-color: #53a318;\"><strong><span style=\"color: #ffffff;\">TYPES OF JUV&Eacute;DERM</span></strong></th>\n<th style=\"background-color: #53a318; width: 100%;\"><strong><span style=\"color: #ffffff;\">BENEFITS</span></strong></th>\n</tr>\n<tr>\n<td style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Juv&eacute;derm Ultra XC</strong></td>\n<td style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&nbsp;Plumps lips</td>\n</tr>\n<tr>\n<td style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Juv&eacute;derm Voluma XC</strong></td>\n<td style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&nbsp;Adds volume to cheeks</td>\n</tr>\n<tr>\n<td style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong>Juv&eacute;derm XC</strong></td>\n<td style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&nbsp;Corrects parentheses lines between the nose and mouth</td>\n</tr>\n<tr>\n<td style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><strong><strong>Juv&eacute;derm</strong></strong><strong>&nbsp;Volbella XC</strong></td>\n<td style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">&nbsp;Subtly plumps lips while softening vertical lip lines&nbsp;</td>\n</tr>\n</tbody>\n</table>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">While reading about all these types of </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derms</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> might leave your head spinning, Dr. Russell notes that their differences lie mostly in their hyaluronic-acid concentrations, the way the hyaluronic acid is cross-linked, and their viscosities. </span></p>\n<p>&ldquo;Different products are better for different areas, and it also depends on the structure of the patient,&rdquo; she says. &ldquo;Most experienced injectors will deviate from the on-label applications of the Juv&eacute;derm products.

Dr. Russell, for example, also uses:</span></p>\n<ul>\n<li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Hyaluronic-acid fillers similar to Juv&eacute;derm, including <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/what-is-restylane\">Restylane</a></span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne</span></li>\n</ul>\n<ul>\n<li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Non-hyaluronic-acid fillers such as Radiesse and Sculptra</span></li>\n</ul>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">While the longevity and results from any of these treatments depend on both the patient and provider, when asked why she might choose </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> over these other options, Dr. Russell points to </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm&rsquo;s</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> quality: &ldquo;</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Juv&eacute;derm</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> products have a great safety profile and provide reliable results.&rdquo;</span></p>\n<h2>What should you know before you go?</h2>\n<h3><strong>You&rsquo;re committing to more than a facial, but nothing as intense as a facelift.</strong></h3>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">As noted in </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/when-to-book-medical-spa-treatments\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">our guide to medical-spa treatments</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, common side effects include redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites, so you might want to put a 24-hour hold on your normal routine post-treatment.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Also know that it&rsquo;s not uncommon for patients with multiple concerns to receive more than one treatment in the same day. Dr. Russell says that she often likes to treat the cheeks first in such cases, restoring the face&rsquo;s structure&mdash;its &ldquo;scaffolding&rdquo;&mdash;before she works her way down to the lower face.</span></p>","created_on":"2017-03-01T21:07:25.400Z","last_modified_on":"2017-03-02T23:03:03.776Z","last_modified_by":"","location":null,"author_name":"Amanda Parker","author":"6fa04b9c-f54e-4efe-8fe9-b23cb367587a","locale":"en_US","seo_title":"Juvéderm: What to Know Before You Go","meta_description":"Juvéderm softens some of the most visible signs of aging.

A really big thing. The Instagram and reality-TV star&rsquo;s noticeably plumper lips took us all by storm back in 2015, and they inadvertently helped bring the quest for perfection through the use of </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">cosmetic fillers</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> into the mainstream.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">But with so many different types of facial and </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">lip fillers</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> out on the market, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. One way to enhance your lips, smooth out wrinkles, or add fullness to the face is by using </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Restylane</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, an </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/injectables-and-fillers\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">injectable dermal filler</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">.</span></p>\n<h3><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What is </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Restylane</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">? Is it safe?</span></h3>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We tapped into the knowledge of </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/hinsdale-il/hanna-facial-cosmetic-surgery\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Dr. Wafik A. Hanna</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, who specializes in facial cosmetic surgery at his Chicagoland practice, to get the low-down on this treatment. According to Dr. Hanna, Restylane is an FDA-approved</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> soft-tissue filler </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">and &ldquo;the first cosmetic </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">dermal filler</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> made of sugar-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body.&rdquo;</span></p>\n<h3><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">How does </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Restylane</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> work?</span></h3>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">In most cases, thinning lips or lines around the nose and mouth are a natural effect of aging caused partly by a slowdown in the production of essential structural proteins like collagen. But once </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Restylane </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">is injected into the skin, it can reinvigorate the skin&rsquo;s structure and help stimulate the production of more collagen.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">For qualified candidates, it is used to enhance lips for a fuller appearance and restore volume and fullness to the face by smoothing out facial wrinkles and folds.</span></p>\n<h3><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">How long does this last?</span></h3>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">When</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> Restylane </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">is used for the first time, Dr. Hanna notes, studies show that average results can last anywhere from 6 to 9 months. With a follow-up treatment, you can expect results to last up to 18 months.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/4WFYXhgm7jNyWznX3mZEecRC7awy/clear_skin_and_big_lips_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></span></p>\n<h3><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">How often do I need to perform treatments for upkeep?</span></h3>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Those who received a follow-up treatment 4.5 or 9 months after their initial treatment maintained their results for up to 18 months. On average, only half the amount of </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Restylane</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> used at the initial treatment is needed at the follow-up treatment. Dr. Hanna suggests that more collagen is formed in most patients who repeatedly get </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">dermal fillers</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> over time&mdash;which means fewer injections are needed for upkeep and maintenance.</span></p>\n<h3><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Is there any downtime?</span></h3>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Treatments take about one hour, and most patients are in and out of the doctor&rsquo;s office without any downtime. &ldquo;One of the benefits of </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Restylane</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> is that it contains a local anesthetic for your comfort,&rdquo; explains Dr. Hanna, which means the process is potentially less painful than other </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">cosmetic fillers</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Common side effects include temporary injection-site reactions, such as redness, swelling, and bruising. The side effects normally last fewer than 7 days in nasolabial folds and fewer than 14 days in lips.</span></p>\n<h3><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">How soon can I see results?</span></h3>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Restylane</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> instantly adds volume when it&rsquo;s injected, so results are noticeable immediately after a treatment. Final results can be seen 1&ndash;2 weeks after any potential swelling or bruising has had time to subside.</span></p>\n<p><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Restylane relies on hyaluronic acid to smooth wrinkles and make lips look plush. <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/what-is-hyaluronic-acid\">Read more about hyaluronic acid</a> and how else you can incorporate it into your beauty routine.&nbsp;</span></em></p>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/injectables-and-fillers\"><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2xDhczVxPpFxVSuuS7gJaUHEtuDq/SHOP_Restylane_lip_injection_jpg-600x66\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></span></em></a></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>","created_on":"2017-03-01T21:07:25.400Z","last_modified_on":"2017-03-03T16:45:01.693Z","last_modified_by":"","location":null,"author_name":"Anam Ather","author":"cba3f221-830d-4063-b5b8-bbde6cb0d7df","locale":"en_US","seo_title":"How Restylane Helps Reverse Signs of Aging","meta_description":"If plastic surgery is too intimidating, Restylane might be the solution you’ve been looking for to combat wrinkles and thinning lips.\n","fb_og_title":"Restylane Unmasked: Everything You’ve Wanted to Know About the Cosmetic Filler","fb_og_description":"If plastic surgery is too intimidating, Restylane might be the solution you’ve been looking for to combat wrinkles and thinning lips.\n","vhp_desc":"<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">If you want to smooth out some wrinkles or plump up those lips, </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Restylane</span><span style=\"font-wei...","tags":["restylane","injections","dermal filler"],"category":"794584ea-905e-4384-b083-1b29323f1a20","secondary_categories":[null,null,null,"794584ea-905e-4384-b083-1b29323f1a20","294ea30b-dd37-49a1-9805-e9e6c7617902"],"published":"PUBLISHED","photos":[{"altText":"SHOP_Restylane_lip_injection_jpg-600x66","caption":"SHOP_Restylane_lip_injection_jpg-600x66","hero":false,"img_key":"img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2xDhczVxPpFxVSuuS7gJaUHEtuDq/SHOP_Restylane_lip_injection_jpg-600x66","img_url":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2xDhczVxPpFxVSuuS7gJaUHEtuDq/SHOP_Restylane_lip_injection_jpg-600x66"},{"altText":"clear_skin_and_big_lips_jpg-600x390","caption":"clear_skin_and_big_lips_jpg-600x390","hero":false,"img_key":"img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/4WFYXhgm7jNyWznX3mZEecRC7awy/clear_skin_and_big_lips_jpg-600x390","img_url":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/4WFYXhgm7jNyWznX3mZEecRC7awy/clear_skin_and_big_lips_jpg-600x390"},{"altText":"older-blonde-woman-examining-skin-in-mirror-concerned-about-wrinkles_jpg-600x390","caption":"older-blonde-woman-examining-skin-in-mirror-concerned-about-wrinkles_jpg-600x390","hero":false,"img_key":"img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/zbWXSioZqsrRWgFG6stNpGe48Xn/older-blonde-woman-examining-skin-in-mirror-concerned-about-wrinkles_jpg-600x390","img_url":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/zbWXSioZqsrRWgFG6stNpGe48Xn/older-blonde-woman-examining-skin-in-mirror-concerned-about-wrinkles_jpg-600x390"},{"altText":"woman_getting_Restylane_injectable_in_lips-1_jpg-600x390","caption":"woman_getting_Restylane_injectable_in_lips-1_jpg-600x390","hero":true,"img_key":"img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2a3FzgNsJUrFuPmB3DmCTWVLdZZ6/woman_getting_Restylane_injectable_in_lips-1_jpg-600x390","img_url":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2a3FzgNsJUrFuPmB3DmCTWVLdZZ6/woman_getting_Restylane_injectable_in_lips-1_jpg-600x390"}],"schemaOrgAttr":{},"permalink":"what-is-restylane","places":[],"validationError":[],"id":"569e86dc-675c-4457-916c-65ce8c27b5cc","published_on":"2017-03-02T04:43:19.871Z","last_published_on":"2017-03-03T16:45:01.531Z","guid":"569e86dc-675c-4457-916c-65ce8c27b5cc","imageUrl":"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2a3FzgNsJUrFuPmB3DmCTWVLdZZ6/woman_getting_Restylane_injectable_in_lips-1_jpg-600x390/v1/c140x85.png","bodyColumns":"nine","url":"/articles/what-is-restylane"},{"title":"Your First Brazilian Wax, Explained","imported":false,"mobile_title":"","name":"","article_type":"","content":"<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2jA9zx5xsqhLEFP5QBwGDf4jwWLY/tanned-woman-in-striped-bikini-brazilian-bikini-wax-1_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">The </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/waxing\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Brazilian wax</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> has the unique distinction of being both one of the most common beauty treatments </span><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">and</span></em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> one of the most intimidating, especially for first-timers. As a newbie myself, I admit that there are some questions I need answered before I&rsquo;d even consider getting my </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">first Brazilian wax</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">. </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Thankfully, Groupon has an airtight double-dog-dare policy in place, so fellow beauty editor Favin stepped up to describe what getting your </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">first Brazilian wax</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> is really like. I wanted to know everything, including whether&mdash;or how badly?&mdash;the procedure would hurt, what it would feel like afterward, and exactly how much hair we&rsquo;re talking about getting rid of. </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So she booked an appointment with Nataliya Dilay, a 17-year industry vet who works at </span><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/chicago/salon-envy-2\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Salon Envy</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> in Chicago, and then confessed that she had many of the same trepidations I do. Namely, Favin was worried it would feel like &ldquo;getting shot with a cannon.&rdquo;</span></p>\n<h2><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What is a Brazilian wax?</span></h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">A Brazilian wax has a no-man-left-behind attitude when it comes to hair. Whereas a standard bikini wax eradicates any hair that would be visible in a traditional swimsuit, a Brazilian gets rid of it all, front and back. &nbsp;</span></p>\n<h2><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2aYwMY1oyaLtdgB5btJNo2Bi95ca/brunette-woman-looking-worried-during-waxing_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></span></h2>\n<h2><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Does a Brazilian wax hurt?</span></h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We all already know the answer here, right? Both Favin and aesthetician Nataliya admitted that the first Brazilian wax is going to hurt. But, according to Nataliya, the first time is definitely the worst, and there are a few things that can help ease the pain.</span></p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>The type of wax:</strong><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> Nataliya prefers to use hard wax versus soft (who knew there were different kinds?) because she thinks it is a little less painful. Unlike soft wax, it doesn&rsquo;t stick to your skin, just your hair, so it doesn&rsquo;t require a strip to remove.</span></li>\n</ul>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>The technique:</strong><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> After every pull, Nataliya applies pressure to the skin, which helps dull the pain. Favin said it &ldquo;looked sort of like she was karate-chopping me.&rdquo;</span></li>\n</ul>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Keep things moving:</strong><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> Favin really liked how fast the appointment went. To accommodate Favin&rsquo;s status as a first-timer with a low tolerance for pain, Nataliya started with a regular bikini wax. Then, as she moved to more intimate areas, she started working from side to side. That way, even if Favin tapped out, the results would be symmetrical.</span></li>\n</ul>\n<ul>\n<li><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><strong>Practice self-soothing</strong>: Deep breaths during the treatment will help keep you calm, but if you&rsquo;re really worried&nbsp;about the pain, take an ibuprofen or have a glass of wine beforehand to help yourself relax.</span></li>\n</ul>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2WMJocxzAiyi62vwL55G15kn454P/woman-with-hot-wax-at-salon_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></span></p>\n<h2><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">How to prepare for a Brazilian wax</span></h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Other than working up the courage to get your </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">first Brazilian wax</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, there isn&rsquo;t really much for you to do. The only words of wisdom from waxing professionals is to let your hair grow. Because wax sticks to long hairs better than stubble, the rule of thumb is that hair needs to be a quarter of an inch long, which equates to about two weeks&rsquo; worth of growth. </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Also, avoid psyching yourself out over the intimacy of the situation. Remember that your waxer is a professional who&rsquo;s seen her fair share of undercarriages. And, depending on your preferences, she can be ruthlessly efficient to get you in and out as quickly as possible, or she can become something of a confidante, like a hairstylist. If you still have questions, <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/eight-questions-you-wish-you-could-ask-before-a-bikini-wax\">we asked a waxing pro about all the delicate details</a> so you wouldn&rsquo;t have to.</span></p>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/local/waxing\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3DwY9ndvYWGmbuqbPCY53qPYwriY/GUIDE_SHOP_BANNER_BRAZILIANWAX_jpg-600x66\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></span></a></p>\n<h2><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What does a Brazilian wax feel like afterward?</span></h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">According to Favin, the aftermath of the Brazilian was the best part. Nataliya tweezed a few stray hairs and dusted her with powder before sending her back out into the world. There was no lingering pain, and she described wearing pants as &ldquo;more of an experience than usual.&rdquo; One day later, she was even more convinced that she&rsquo;d go back for another round.</span></p>","created_on":"2017-02-24T16:12:34.827Z","last_modified_on":"2017-02-27T15:28:00.648Z","last_modified_by":"","location":null,"author_name":"Jolene Gilbert","author":"bdf80863-23e6-483d-9f93-b44e2ab0ca63","locale":"en_US","seo_title":"Your First Brazilian Wax, Explained","meta_description":"A Groupon beauty editor talks us through her first Brazilian wax, and what everyone needs to know.

It may be a small portion of your day, but it can help get you off to a comfortable start, which makes purchasing the best bath towels that much more important.</p>\n<p dir=\"ltr\">Shopping for towels can be a challenge, with myriad materials to choose from and plenty of terminology to decode. Never fear; Groupon's towel buying guide is here to break down what you need to know.</p>\n<h2 dir=\"ltr\">Know The Fabrics</h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2MoAPzo6DKQ1o1FG5nn8xmgtL8ta/white-towels-stacked_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<h3 dir=\"ltr\"><em>Cottons</em></h3>\n<ul>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Egyptian cotton:</strong> Generally considered the king of cottons, this premium cotton's balance of softness, durability, absorbency, and breathability makes for some of the best bath towels available. Grown under Egypt's plentiful sunshine, this plant produces extra-long staples that turn into the thirsty, fibrous threads for which Egyptian cotton towels are famous.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Turkish cotton:</strong> Grown in Turkey, this premium cotton shares many qualities with Egyptian cotton. Though less absorbent than Egyptian cotton, Turkish cotton naturally has an attractive sheen, which gives towels a luxurious look.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Pima cotton:</strong> Though it's harvested from the same plant as Egyptian cotton, Pima is grown in countries such as Israel, Australia, and Peru, whose growing conditions alter the end product. It tends to lose some softness, but it gains strength.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Supima</strong><strong> cotton:</strong> A portmanteau of \"superior\" and \"Pima,\" Supima is the trademarked term for Pima cotton grown by certified farmers in the American Southwest, which is also where the term Pima comes from. The Pima, a Native American tribe in Arizona, began growing the cotton in the early 20th century.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\"><strong>MicroCotton:</strong> The trademarked term for a cotton developed in India. The cotton produces long staples that turn into fluffy threads, giving towels a suede-like texture</li>\n</ul>\n<h3 dir=\"ltr\"><em>Eco-Friendly </em></h3>\n<ul>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Organic cotton:</strong> This doesn't refer to a specific type of cotton; rather, it refers to how a cotton was grown. Organic cottons give you the peace of mind that its farmers used high-quality fertilizers and avoided using harsh pesticides.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Bamboo:</strong> While there's a chance these towels are 100% bamboo, they're usually a blend. Besides its absorbency, bamboo fabric often boasts a lush feel and silky sheen, and its colorfastness resists fading. However, bamboo's environmental friendliness is a matter of perspective. It's naturally renewable and is easier to grow than cotton, but it requires heavy processing to turn into fabric. Read about rayon in the next section to learn more.</p>\n</li>\n</ul>\n<h3 dir=\"ltr\"><em>Synthetics</em></h3>\n<ul>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Rayon:</strong> Also referred to as viscose, rayon is a semi-synthetic fabric made by chemically treating natural material. Bamboo is perhaps the best-known example for towels. Modal, a rayon derived from beech trees, has been gaining popularity as well.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Microfiber:</strong> This manmade fabric typically blends fine polyester and polyamide fibers. Though they don't feel as luxurious as their cotton counterparts, microfiber towels are light, durable, and quick-drying. Microfiber is also great for washcloths, as it does a good job of grabbing makeup, trapping dirt, and exfoliating skin.</li>\n</ul>\n<h2 dir=\"ltr\">Know How It's Made</h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3Jcqwca3zcv9dp2Bqex7Qa39BKW9/different-makes-of-towels_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p dir=\"ltr\">The construction can give you an idea of how the towels function&mdash;softer, thirstier, more durable, faster-drying, and so on. Here are some common constructions and what they mean for you:</p>\n<h3 dir=\"ltr\"><em>Yarn</em></h3>\n<ul>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Combed:</strong> Refers to cotton being combed to remove the short and uneven fibers, leaving just the long central fibers. Results in a stronger, smoother fabric.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Hollow:</strong> Also sometimes seen as hygro, this means that the cotton yarns have a hollow core, make them extra-thirsty. That hollowness also enhances airflow for faster drying. As a bonus, hollow yarns make the fabric feel extra-fluffy after laundering.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Ringspun:</strong> Means the fibers are twisted tightly together, creating smooth, strong, and fine yarns. Tends to feel more refined than combed cotton.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Twist:</strong> Refers to the amount of twist per inch of yarn. The lower amount, such as low-twist and zero-twist, the plusher the towel. A higher amount results in a more durable, substantial-feeling towel.</li>\n</ul>\n<h3 dir=\"ltr\"><em>Texture</em></h3>\n<ul>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Loop:</strong> Different loop lengths offer different feels. Longer loops, such as those found in terry cloth, feel fluffy, dry quickly, and wick moisture more than they absorb it. Shorter loops feel denser and are more absorbent.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Velour:</strong> Most towels are made with loops of yarn, but velour towels have no loops. Instead, the yarns stand straight out. This makes the towel less absorbent, but it creates a soft, velvety surface. Velour also creates a great surface for printing patterns.</li>\n</ul>\n<h3 dir=\"ltr\"><em>Decoration</em></h3>\n<ul>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Jacquard:</strong> This refers to the method used to weave the towel fabric. It securely weaves patterns&mdash;sometimes even quite intricate ones&mdash;so the towel looks good, but can still stand up to frequent use.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Yarn-dyed:</strong> Yarn-dyed towels are woven with dyed yarns, so the pattern saturates through the fabric. This offers several benefits over printed patterns, which can looker cheaper by comparison. Printed patterns are also prone to shifting over time from laundering.</p>\n</li>\n</ul>\n<h3 dir=\"ltr\"><em>Weight</em></h3>\n<ul>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>GSM:</strong> Stands for grams per square meter. The higher the number, the heavier the towel.</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Two-ply:</strong> Means the towel is made with double the amount of yarn. This makes the towel denser, more durable, and extra absorbent, but increases its drying time.</li>\n</ul>\n<h2 dir=\"ltr\">Know The Types of Towels</h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/ENxjiaWaWBnPDA4CQwv4YEAzNLM/good-looking-towels-1_jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<ul>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Bath towel:</strong> The most basic of towel types, used to dry off after a shower. Usually measures around 27\"x52\".</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Bath sheet:</strong> A larger version of a bath towel, for those who prefer extra coverage. Usually measures around 35\"x60\".</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Washcloth:</strong> Small square towel that can be used in or out the shower. It helps clean and exfoliate the hands, face, and body. Usually measures around 13\"x13\".</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Hand towel:</strong> Smaller towel for drying your hands after washing them. Usually measures around 16\"x30\".</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\">\n<p dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Fingertip towel:</strong> Smaller version of a hand towel, often used in guest bathrooms. Usually measures around 11\"x18\".</p>\n</li>\n<li dir=\"ltr\"><strong>Tub mat:</strong> Dense towel for laying on the floor immediately outside a tub or shower. Sometimes called a bathmat, it helps catch dripping water.

Noninvasive VelaShape contours the body without scalpels and anesthesia. Instead, it relies on four types of technology to shrink fat cells. Smaller fat cells may translate into slimmer body areas.</p>\n<h2>How does <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/browse/?query=velashape\" target=\"_blank\">VelaShape</a> work?</h2>\n<p dir=\"ltr\">The treatment combines four technologies&mdash;radio frequency, infrared light, vacuum suction, and mechanical massage&mdash;to help clients lose inches. Once the device is placed against the skin, it goes to work, using vacuum technology to suction against the skin and massage rollers to knead the treatment area.</p>\n<p dir=\"ltr\">At the same time, the device emits radio-frequency energy and infrared light, which penetrate the fat cells and temporarily perforate their membranes. This causes the fat cells to release their fatty acids, glycerol, and water into the body and then shrink. The process can also boost collagen production, tightening and smoothing skin to help soften the appearance of cellulite.</p>\n<h2>How many treatments do I need to see results?</h2>\n<p dir=\"ltr\">Most clients can see results after three sessions, but 4&ndash;6 weekly treatment sessions are recommended for optimal results.</p>\n<h2>What areas can be treated?</h2>\n<p dir=\"ltr\">It can treat the thighs, buttocks, love handles, and abdomen.</p>\n<h2>Is this invasive?</h2>\n<p dir=\"ltr\">No, this treatment is not invasive.</p>\n<h2>Is there any downtime?</h2>\n<p dir=\"ltr\">There is no downtime required.</p>\n<h2>How long do results last?</h2>\n<p dir=\"ltr\">VelaShape does not destroy fat cells. Rather, it empties them of their contents, which means the fat cells are capable of storing fat again. A balanced diet is the only way to ensure lasting results. Those who take in more calories than they burn will see their improvement start to decrease over time. And according to VelaShape reviews, the clients who have gotten the procedure for cellulite reduction have seen results, but those results have only lasted up to a few months without maintenance treatments. Stronger radio-frequency treatments such as <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/how-to-get-rid-of-cellulite\" target=\"_blank\">Thermage</a><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/articles/how-to-get-rid-of-cellulite\" target=\"_blank\"> can reduce the appearance of cellulite</a> for a while longer, but it's not possible to get rid of cellulite permanently.</p>\n<h2>What does VelaShape cost?</h2>\n<p>The cost depends on the treatment areas and number of treatments needed, but people typically pay between $800 and $2,000 for a series of treatments.</p>\n<p><a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/browse?query=velashape\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2ScidZtBC98kC7Vd7vNabppPBrX3/600x66_merchandising_velashape_033117_lw_jpg-600x66\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></a></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>","created_on":"2017-03-31T20:55:25.016Z","last_modified_on":"2017-04-24T19:48:52.338Z","last_modified_by":"","location":null,"author_name":"Groupon Editors","author":"df385855-6978-440d-b5a2-7d14dc0f0515","locale":"en_US","seo_title":"What Is VelaShape, and How Does It Work?","meta_description":"VelaShape relies on four technologies to not only slim down bodies, but also soften the appearance of cellulite.
