This Place is Serious About Your Face

When it comes to our skin, we as Cheeky women are embarking on a turning of the tides. Long gone are the days of basking in the sun without SPF, drinking more sugary cocktails than we do water and falling asleep in our make-up. (Oh, the horror!)

At this current juncture in our (slightly) more sophisticated lives, it’s all about prevention and care. Remaining youthful is serious business and requires attention and commitment. So in honor of our youth, we recently headed to Cellular Intelligence MedSpa for a transformative facial that not only changed our skin, but potentially our entire perspective on “beauty treatments.”

Let’s be clear. If you’re looking for a dimly lit relaxation lounge, cucumber water, Enya music and a side room to get a mani, CI MedSpa is not your place. The brightly lit, sleek but discreetly located, uber-mod spa feels more like a doctor’s office than the Four Seasons. But that’s their point. This place is serious about your face.

According to owner Dara Levy, she herself was sick and tired of hitting a zillion different locations (the doctor’s office for meds, the beauty spa for a deep clean, the dermatologist for Botox) all for one universal result: beautiful skin. So, she put the best of the best all under one roof. (And we don’t say “the best of the best” lightly. CI’s Director of Plastic Surgery is former Chief of Plastic Surgery at Bethesda Washington: AKA the President’s hospital.) And his team is one of the finest, most professional in town.

But if you’re like us, surgery, injectables and Botox need not be your current necessity. However… gorgeous, wrinkle-free, acne-free, flawless skin is always in style. Which is why the DermaFlash Plus Facial could be the next best thing for your visage.

This is the medical spa’s signature treatment, which uses the technique of “dermoplaning,” a unique, very fine scalpel-like tool that removes that build up that blocks your glow. We’re talking about dead skin, peach fuzz, black heads and the rest of the nasty gunk that makes your face less than, shall we say, Cheeky. After the dermoplaning, an oxygen facial and a customized peel round out the treatment, leaving your skin baby soft. Literally. We walked out of CI MedSpa with skin so soft, so clear, so smooth… we couldn’t believe it was true. The Spa’s motto is: “You…only better.” And this could not be more true.

But seeing is not only believing. Cheeky and CI MedSpa want you to experience it first hand yourself. Starting today, the spa is offering 20% off to all Cheeky girls who mention this article.

See you (and your practically perfect, pretty little face) around town.
