Erasing Signs of Age
Chances are you won't leave the spa looking 20 years younger, but your face will probably feel -- and might even look -- a lot more rejuvenated.

There's big business in anti-aging facials, which are designed to reduce wrinkles, inject moisture, improve circulation and generally perk up the skin. There are too many variations on this theme to count, so here's a short list of elements that are commonly included: microdermabrasion, brisk massages, vitamin-infused serums, glycolic-acid peels, laser treatments, collagen creams and light therapy. Chances are you won't leave the spa looking 20 years younger, but if a temporary rejuvenated appearance is OK with you (plus that hour of quiet relaxation we keep talking about), it's probably money well spent!
